Since we're slowly fine-tuning our Flash skills,
we have decided to take the challenge that Tampa Bay didn't even pose.

Go to [ their website ] and watch the Flash Intro.
Over the upcoming weekend, we will reproduce it, Penguin/Pensblog Style.

It's either do this or talk about Mats Sundin.

Sold.

The flash is burning my retinas.

TheNWChica said...

Okay...so I hit refresh one more time.

I love the logo with the blue colors.

OH, and Dear Mats Sundin...please to be making a decision soon. Vancouver fans are tired of hearing about you.

No love, the Chica

Oh, and p.s. Yay for not having to work today so I can stay up and see the new post!

sh0ez said...

Work in an hour. No sleep. Woo!

PittHockey said...

sepulveda gone for the year?

what a failure of a player.

where will we get those booming 20 yard punts from now?

jefe penguino said...

@nwchica -hah, i just read your last comment from the other post. glad you made it!

@Dan -your logo made it! alas, not the tb retirement logo though.

J.S. said...

@pitthockey, if it's 20 yard punts you're looking for, Chris Gardocki is your man.

I hear he's a free agent and has never had a punt blocked.

canaan said...

nothing like getting your cue from thepensblog and deciding to mail it in today. looks like someone isn't working today. wooo!

Chubs said...

I think tPb mailing these in is actually affecting my output at work.

Or I'm just lazy. Either way, can summer be over now?

TPSB Writer said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! on this day, 3 years ago, we drafted sid the kid...

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

Dude, how the hell does a punter get hurt on the second (third?) day of training camp? I can see if said punter is a maniac like one of the Grammatica brothers, but a punter? Did Steely McBeam put a hit on him or something?

slush said...

Im tired of summer. So over it. Bring on some cooler weather and some real hockey news already.

J.S. said...

Sepultura or whatever his name is had the same problem prior to being drafted. He tore his ACL and came back from it too early. He said he had it checked out but nothing showed up in the MRI prior to camp.

There's an in-depth link for it on post-gazette.com

Fuzz said...

That is the gayest shit I've ever seen.

Is Melrose growing the mullet back?

Vern said...

Will Sepulveda be ok to return in time for the Stanley Cup playoffs?

Dan said...

ya jefe it made it!!!!!!!! i was hoping for the group cane effort, but i'll take it!

dying alive said...

But the important question is, is Casey Hampton still too fat to play? And can we get a couple more hours of video of him huffing and puffing on the sidelines?

Jesus. How many days until the training camp that matters starts?

Loran said...

I know it's July, and it is very slow for hockey, so why dont you recap Raw or Smackdown one of these nights? Plenty of people to job in WWE, including Cody Rhodes' constantly black eyes and the fact that Jesse looks like the ghost of Owen Hart

Jason Carr said...

First Pensblog comment...

I think redoing the flash pens-style is great, but you gotta keep the "whoosh" noise when you mouseover the links at the end. It hurts my delicate ears.

debrisslide said...

Icethetics seems to have totally active comments sections, because there always seems to be something logo-related or jersey-related to talk about. I bet their die-hard commenting regulars aren't nearly as bored as we are.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

For uniform changes, etc., this is prime time for hockey. This is when teams break out new uniform designs for next season, and in the lead-up to those introductions, there's always rampant speculation as to how the uniforms are going to look.

Last year, that place was nuts, with all 30 teams breaking out new uniforms.

P.O. said...

anyone ever have a jersey tailored? i bought a jersey that is too big for me now and want to have it taken in a little bit... is this possible ??

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

Paul Lukas always does a uniform preview on ESPN.com right before the season starts, and it's always worth the read. He's also got a blog. Covers all sports, very well done.

Dan said...

i used to go on lukas's website all the time, somewhere along the line i decided it was too jumbled together. it needs to be organized better. i don't care about soccer/basketball/ well anything that not football hockey or baseball actually.

I R A Darth Aggie said...

It's July 30.

Jesu Christi. NFL camps are open, with the season opening in mid-September. Tomorrow is MLB's trade deadline. College football teams should be edging towards 2-a-days, with the season opening Thursday August 28.

Is it mid-September yet, when the NHL reports to camp?

Anthony said...

Sepulveda's injury was just Gary Roberts' going away present to the Steelers.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

Sepulveda's injury was just Gary Roberts' going away present to the Steelers.

Nah, if Gary Roberts had been involved, they would've found Sepulveda beaten to death with his own leg.

J.S. said...

unlike Roberts, I bet Sepulveda didn't even walk off the field under his own power.

and I don't care if he's no longer in Pittsburgh, Roberts > any NFL player

Dan said...

if roberts was going to leave a going away present, he'd have taken out mahan, not the punter.

akus said...

some hockey news for a slow,slow day

Crime in Canada


Shit, i thought today was the last day of August

Flyer Hater said...

These make the mailing it in posts last week look like the Winter Classic Recap.

Dan said...

fh - touche, at least there's been some substance to the last few.

i REALLY REALLY REALLY want an Oceanic jersey the more i think about it. any clue where i could acquire one of these puppies, in an xxl?

Paul said...

Oh no, Sepulveda's down! When I worked at the Best Buy at the Waterfront, he used to come in once every week or so and just play guitar hero. He's an absolute joke.

Ryan Whitney bought his ps3 from me, too. Ever since, I've been a fan just by association.

Flyer Hater said...

Is that video Canaan's biography?

wooo

BlacknGold66 said...

With Sepulveda down we have nobody on Special Teams to make a tackle.

Flyer Hater said...

With Sepulvada down, we have no one that can punt the ball more than 10 yards.

J.S. said...

With Sepulveda down, we have nobody to waste time in Best Buy on the Guitar Hero demo

BlacknGold66 said...

With Sepulveda down the water boy will have to pick up his slack by banging all of the garbage hookers that the linebackers and QB's leave behind at the big parties.

J.S. said...

bng, I thought that was Jeff Reed's duties as the kicker.

Let the pictures show that he likes to party, so I wouldn't put it past him to perform "mop-up duty".

By mop up, I do mean the b-rate hookers and not....ahh, screw it, I'm getting back to work.

akus said...

Well the Directv installer just left, now i have NHL Network, it will kill some time.

Next up: new TV HD Style.

Dan said...

hd changes your life

justinafi said...

That was this biggest jobbing of my new haircut i've ever seen

Victor Raison said...

July is stealing my soul.

dan: Haha, I had the exact same thought. HD will make you never leave your house. You will start choosing where you watch games based on whether or not they have HD, rather than based on whether or not you'll have friends there.

HD=crack

TheNWChica said...

Man...6 hours of sleep is not enough; but I'm not at work!!!! Sh0ey...check in and let us know if you made it to work and/or home alive!

Operation Dickie Goes Hawaiian will commence about 1pm HDT tomorrow afternoon. I just have to get the stickers and we're good to go.

I wonder if the Staff will post a picture if I send it in? Meh, probably not, but I'll send it anyway.

canaan said...

LOL.

touche, FH

akus said...

Watching Gary Roberts from the 01`02 Leafs season.( top 10 hitters)


Five years later still a hitting machine.


@dan, i believe it will.

J.S. said...

Interesting article on players retiring from concussions. One Penguin draft pick mentioned, and a few Pens mentioned within the article. It's at least an attempt at some type of hockey talk.

Thanks to LGP.com for this one.

J.S. said...

forgot to mention Penguins director of hockey administration Jason Botterill is also mentioned as one of the players forced to retire.

Dan said...

victor - i find myself watching things i could care less about, just because they are in hd. movies, tv shows, it doesn't matter how much they suck, the hd is just so pretty

Victor Raison said...

dan: Likewise.

Besides, HD adds an entirely new dimension to the Food Network. Hah.

BlacknGold66 said...

@Akus: Sweet deal!

I recieved notification of my DirecTV bill for this month and it reads as follows:

"Total Amount Due: No Amount Due"

Word!

You'll be getting the same type of bill in a month I bet! Can't beat $50 free bucks!

Julia said...

i like how they have adam hall on the list before malone and roberts stamkos.

Spend that $50 wisely BnG66.

___

Ohhh, i see a problem with my Directv.....NO local FSN. My "local" regional sports network is the damn Craps, oh this is not good.
I swore when i looked into ordering Direcv i made sure it carried FSN-Pittsburgh.

Dan said...

3rd jersey info NEW with pictographs!

heathc4242 said...

Bing is on a line with Kennedy and Dupuis in that demo. Badlinecomboblog.

akus said...

Ok, i am not happy with Directv if FSN is based on my zipcode and i live in central PA, why the hell do i have.
Mid Atlantic Sports Network..

12 miles up the road they get,

FSN Pittsburgh (Ch. 628)
# Pirates (HD Available)
# Pittsburgh Penguins (HD Available)


Guess it all depends on how the signals flies.

When i switch on 628, it tells me it is moving to another channel.

My time with Directv may be short lived.
BnG66, hurry up and spend that money!!!
_________
Ok, after doing some "research" it seems since my zip begins with 17, i have to pay to see the Pens. If i had a 16 zip( which is 12 miles up the road) i get it for free, soooooo if i want to watch the Pens i need to upgrade.


Dammit.

Cory said...

Anyone notice that in that NHL '09 clip that Bing crushes Hossa into the boards near the end of the demo?

That is sweet...

Bryan Bell said...

New Uni's...

Sick!

Hip said...

seriously at this point it's just embarrassing to play for Tampa Bay
