Apparently Alyssa Milano took time out of her tour of major league player's beds and being remembered for a sitcom that ended 16 years ago, to create a line of women's NHL clothing.
[ Hockey, Football, and Stiletto Shoes ]

The Baby Penguins unveiled an alternate jersey. [ WBS ]

No doubt Dwight's already ordered one for Michael's next birthday.

The Cigar Smoking Man from [ Puck Daddy ] stopped by [ The Strangest One of All ] to ramble about himself and his New Jersey Devils.

"Here in D.C., I’m legend [sic] for being the guy who screams out crap on the escalator after the game. Mostly because, at that point, it’s the Smithwick's talking."


That's right Greg. We sic'd your ass.

to continue your call, please insert another quarter.

Maria said...

The JibJab of Hossa and Babcock is hilarious. Thank you for giving me another way to be unproductive tomorrow at work.

Commish223 said...

Second?

Brett said...

Stoosh is KILLIN with those inspiration posters. And I can't wait for new The Office.

wilsmith said...

The Office is the best show on tv.

no questions about it.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Hooch is crazy ... don't put anything in his shower ...

Also, Dwight is the lion and you're dead. That's how health care in the wild is ...

coffeytalk said...

best current comedies:

1) The Office
2) Scrubs
3) How I Met Your Mother

brndlynn said...

in may have been phoned in but any post that uses a scrubs reference as the heading, has a Babcock/Hossa ribbon twirling jib jab and jobs Puck Daddy is ok in my book.

FireFox said...

Alyssa Milano could wipe her ass with a shirt and try to sell it, I could care less about her stupid clothes. She is still hot. Very bangable. :)

KaylaJ said...

as an american judge, i give them a 0, but a 10 on the gay scale.

after hopefully making someone at the cable company cry, i read about john challis. that really is a bummer and like someone said so shocking considering how good he looked during the finals. but that's the cruelest thing about diseases, one day is so much different than the next.

Stoosh said...

@ Brett -

Awesome! Many, many thanks.

About two weeks ago at work, I got put on the implementation team for a new corporate-wide business software implementation team (we're transitioning to SAP, for those who might be familiar) so the last two weeks have pretty much been hell at work, and this is going to take up like all of my time for the next two years (but at least it's job security).

What I'm trying to say is that usually by the time I get home at night and start thinking up stuff for the Countdown Motivators, my brain is in about the same state it would be if I started locking myself in my basement with an open 55-gallon drum of paint thinner noshing on peyote leaves.

But it works, so why change things up?

Guy Germaine said...

If only the Pens Patrol girls could look more like Alyssa. Also, I'm not a big fan of the Baby Pens new alternate jersey...I just don't like the written text across the front, like the Dallas Stars. It's weak-ass.

RedWings said...

I think that jibjab piece shows why the Wings are Champions. I mean, you could tell they were kinda screwing around, but still they were all business. Neither one of them smiled throughout their whole routine, even after they stuck their landing.

That's balls.

stokes said...

so i'm house sitting and i've been watching NHL Network.


ALL. WEEK. LONG.


I wish vacation was this good.

J.S. said...

(dons the flame resistant suit)

am I the only one who doesn't get The Office? I'm not here to hate on it, but I've given it a few chances, and I think I've walked away from each episode thinking "meh".

P.O. said...

js

that was ballsy... the next 324 comments will be people either explaining the office to you or bashing you for not liking it... its like curb your enthusiasm, you either get it, or you dont

coffeytalk said...

j.s.-

no flames here. The first season is a bit hard to get through. At least the first 3 episodes are. I was a big fan of the original British show and HATED what I saw of the Americanized one. Then out of no where the show picked up, the characters became likeable instead of cheap knock-offs of the British Office, the writing got smarter and funnier and now I am deeply in love with it.

I'd give it another chance.

brndlynn said...

@ js: im with you. i think it has its funny moments but its never been a must watch kind of show for me.

P.O. said...

its a tough show to get if you dont work in an office... if you work in an office you can relate someone on the show to a person you know in real life or things that actually happen in your office and it makes it all the more hilarious

coffeytalk said...

I don't work in an office. I never have and I hope I never have to.

The Goon Blogger said...

I paused Reel Big Fish for that Jib Job garbage?

Jokes.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

Yeah, despite my earlier fly-off-the-handle reaction, the motivational posters are pretty sweet.

sh0ez said...

Hey. Haven't been around. Been back in Johnstown with the girl for a little while. Anyways, I thought maybe I would bring up a jobbing opportunity for everyone.

This joke of a kid thought it would be cool to attempt to job me, the girl, and tPB by saying that knowing Kevin Nash is better than knowing tPB. For those of you who don't know, Kevin Nash is the washed up wrestler who used to go by the name of Diesel. Yeah, that pathetic. Ha ha.

If you want to job him, just click here. If you are part of the Pittsburgh, PA network, you should be able to say something. Ha ha. Enjoy.

J.S. said...

I'm not in an office, but I do work in a similar environment. My test floor or even the place that I was cross-assigned to earlier this year, does have a number of individuals who each have their own personality. Not quite in the same fashion at The Office, not even close, but I've seen enough of the show to understand what you mean.
Still I don't get the show. I don't know if it's the cutaways that bother me or the opinion that I find Rain* Wilson unfunny (ducks) no matter what he plays.


* - Rain has one n in it, you dick. No need for the additional one.

P.O. said...

coffeytalk

why not??? working in an office is sweet...





....sweet as a daily bamboo shute being shoved in your finger nails

Dan said...

if you combine the fake post i made earlier with the actual post, you get a full post!

fh is probably spanking it to that picture, it never should have been posted. TPB has just become NSFW everywhere because of milano and fh

and coffey, this is how i'd rank them right now:
1. the venture bros.
2. it's always sunny in philadelphia
2. the office

scrubs and the office both were down big time last year, and they are two of my favorite shows.

j.s. - it is shot as a documentary, if that helps any. probs not though.

Katie said...

Sorry I've been away, but I actually got to take a vacation this year. Decided it would take me forever to catch up on posts, so I am starting anew...

@stoosh -- SAP, oh, I feel your pain...used it for a couple of years at a previous job. Will probably now have a nightmare tonight.

As to the Office, I've worked in one, but I'm not a big fan of the NBC show. Something about Steve Carrell always bugged me. I liked the original BBC version.

The baby Pens jersey is just, meh. JibJab had me crying.

Have to do some work. Looking forward to tomorrow's post. I'm amazed the staff was able to find a pay phone... I thought they were pretty much non-existant in Pittsburgh. All over the place here in Portland.

KaylaJ said...

worked in an office, but never got the show. almost seems like its trying too hard.

J.S. said...

Kevin Nash, irrelevant since 2002, possibly longer.

Does that dude roll with Duke "The Dumpster" Droese and Doink The Clown too?

J.S. said...

lol dan, you're probably right. it doesn't help.

i'll at least give points for trying.

Dan said...

doink still is, and always will be, relevant. he had midgets.

Anthony said...

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS, Alyssa Milano is so damn hot.

stokes said...

Pens vs. rangers game two NHL network, on right now.


excellent.

Dan said...

this link/video is for all the guys

brndlynn said...

stokes: im jealous right now. NHL Network was supposed to be added to my cable package yesterday but its still not showing. when i called today the lady laughed at me and said that theres no hockey in august anyways and to be patient. obviously not a hockey fan.

RedWings said...

Thanks, Dan!

Dan said...

ugh i wish armstrong got the nhl network.

eileenover said...

Well I don't really get Scrubs, so there you go.

P.O. said...

if the penguins had ice girls river day 2008 and i got to say ball-licker dipshit to the principal i would be so happy

shawnawwwesome said...

Don't those typos just make you [sic]?

stokes said...

Brandi: Since i am house sitting right now, i am getting the Network. We were supposed to get it at home with the FiOS, but some fucking idiot that worked at Verizon "forgot" to mark our house down and we didn't get the hook up and won't until Spetember now. Bad for me, good for the lady. She can have the TV until Sept.

I was at that game, so its cool to be able to watch it on TV. And get goosebumps with every random LET'S GO PENS! chants....

DAMMIT. Staal just scored!!!

stokes said...

Drinkblog?


I'm drinking Pabst pounders. i got a sixer and figure if i drink them fast enough, i can get a decent buzz....

Dan said...

p.o. - what river are we talking about having them in? i don't think any of our 3 are good for that

Flyer Hater said...

About time Milano made a post.

Scrubs=Worst show on TV

When I've watched the show with my buddies, I bet them each 20 bucks that I wouldn't laugh one time during the show. I haven't lost any money yet.

BlacknGold66 said...

@Stokes: Yeah, the lady over here was happy that I had given the NHL Network a break for a few weeks.

Then they started playing the Pens/Rags series.

Not that she doesn't love watching the Pens... but me going on and on about being at Game 1 (which was on last night) was getting on her nerves.

@Guy Germain: Delta Dental Pens Patrol has some talent. I'm partial to the girl that's a cancer survivor. She still isn't as smoking hot as this girl that works for the Lake Erie Monsters.

Torture.

@IHK: Damn nature... you scary!!

Robert Ullman said...

Finally, someone gets it right with the big three: Venture, Sunny, Office. I always wondered why the hell Philadelphia even existed, but now I realize it's so that they could make this hilarious show.

Speaking of Philly, FlyerHater (when is he gonna change his name to "Everything Hater", BTW) is also right: Scrubs is intolerable. I'd pay $500 to attend a ballbat party where Zach Braff is the guest of honor.

stokes said...

Taking a break from hockey is stupid.


BNG: Good deal. Game One i watched drunk as hell with my dad and a bunch of friends. WHAT A GAME.



I met Mark Madden over the weekend, and while there were times where he was a egomaniac, overall, he was a pretty cool dude. But he is pretty damn fat. He also had some pretty interesting things to say...

PENS WIN! Awesome.

Dan said...

i've been saying it for over a year now: venture is the best show on tv, period

Tony Little said...

Anyone down with a jobbing tonight on Fedho?

jimmypop6996 said...

1.) The Office
2.) Flight of the Conchords
3.) n/a

^Current comedies

BlacknGold66 said...

Taking a break from hockey ='ed moving into new house waiting for cable to get hooked up.

stokes said...

BNG, sometimes that shit happens.


Tony Little: job Fedjoke. Anytime is a good time. I'll still be watching hockey....

KaylaJ said...

brandi had the woman told me that i would've tracked her down and kicked her ass and reminded her that ass kicking is all year round!

and eileen, yeah, sometimes i get stuck watching scrubs on comedy central since that's all they seem to show during the day, but its like watching a car crash. you know its gonna be bad, but you're waiting for the wreckage.

and since we're opening up our tv dislikes, i don't like colbert or the daily show.

PittHockey said...

trying to order just the milano

eileenover said...

The only Milano I like are of the cookie variety.

brndlynn said...

ive never even heard of the venture bros show and i couldnt stand flight of the concords. ive been looking forward to the always sunny new season even though ive never seen it before. the promos look hilarious.
i agree with coffeys top 3 minus the office. scrubs is probably my favorite comedy show.

Hip said...

I just wanted to say that I love C-blog so much.

Hip said...

You people I mean.

Flyer Hater said...

If it's any consolation Eileen, I would like to eat Milano.

Dan said...

concords was one of the dumbest shows i've ever seen. it's time for scrubs to ride off into the sunset, as much as i like it. venture bros - cartoon network, sunday @ 11:30, season finale this week :(

Dan said...

fh - define "eat"

eileenover said...

I wish I hadn't read that.

Dan said...

fh could be going dahmer on us you never know

brndlynn said...

i agree that its the end of the road for scrubs. im glad that they are doing one more season since the writers strike interrupted this one but that should def be the end of it.

shawnawwwesome said...

So, it's settled.

Top current comedies (not counting toons):

Office
Flight
Sunny

Close fourth... Fedko Fone Zone

KaylaJ said...

forget venture bros, its time for new episodes of dethklok this sunday! woot!!!

brndlynn said...

well if he starts asking for recommendations on Chianti we may have reason for concern. :)

stokes said...

FH= solid.

Dan said...

i don't think flight belongs anywhere near the top, we've only had one like. the consensus 3 would probably be (in no order) the office, sunny, and south park. why didn't we mention south park you ask? because we don't have to.

brndlynn said...

flight has no place on the top 3. im sticking with HIMYM and scrubs as my top 2 and based solely on the previews im gonna say Sunny should be in there as well.

KaylaJ said...

is it wrong to think dexter is funny?

Guy Germaine said...

I can't watch Scrubs for more than 5 minutes at a time. I can't stand hospitals...and I certainly don't want to watch em on TV. And that goes for Greys Anatomy too.

Dan said...

no, i laugh at dexter a lot. it's almost wrong to laugh at entourage anymore. talk about a show that went down the shitter.

shawnawwwesome said...

You do South Park, then you gotta admit Family Guy, and then it's a whole can of worms just got popped open.

Fine, I can see Conchords maybe not being a top flight (see what I did there?) show. I've personally never seen Your Mom, but if in it NPH is anything like his cameo in the Kumar movies, count me in.

TheNWChica said...

Add me to the list of people who don't find the Office funny and I've stopped watching Scrubs for no apparent reason. My office is more like Dilbert every day.

But then I never got Arrested Development nor found it funny. I guess I'm just weird like that.

Dan said...

family guy will never be included either. south park hit the nail on the head with the "cartoon wars" episodes. it's a godawful show. i consider the simpsons the greatest show ever, but wouldn't even consider putting it in this list right now.

KaylaJ said...

good, wasn't sure if laughing at killers was a good thing to do. but i do love the clip where they are dancing to foghat!

and yeah, entourage seemed to get too much of itself and now just kinda swirls in a broken toilet.

Flyer Hater said...

"fh - define "eat""

If you have to ask, there's really no point in explaining it.

stokes said...

more drinking, less TV.

best show ever: Doug.

Family Guy is a hell of a show. Eff you if you don't like it.

Dan said...

once again, in your terms, the term "eat" scares me lol. i know both definitions lol.

Flyer Hater said...

I haven't watched a Network show on a consistent basis since the last two seasons of Seinfeld. For the most part TV sucks and the sitcoms are even worse. Just watch one episode of the Big Bang Theory, if you don't throw your TV into oncoming traffic/put a knife through each eardrum then you just don't know what's going on.

For comedy

Howard Stern=Always Gold

Flyer Hater said...

"once again, in your terms, the term "eat" scares me lol. i know both definitions lol."

Well Danny, posting I'd like to eat her out wouldn't fit into the context would it?

shawnawwwesome said...

Dan, I'm just not sure you're working your TV right.




Is it wrong that my favorite character on SP is Randy Marsh?

No, it isn't.

Dan said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Dan said...

ditto, fh, on howard and the eating. the legend continues

well stokes, fuck me i guess

any episode with randy marsh = instant classic

stokes said...

FH/Dan: I would rather just bang the shit out of her, but that doesn't fit the context either....

eileenover said...

I think Roger was the best character on Doug.

Flyer Hater said...

"best show ever: Doug."

Wrong.

What Would You Do with Marc Summers is the best show of all time.

brndlynn said...

kayla: dexter is funny. no reason to feel bad about laughing at him.

stokes: i havent thought of that show in years. nostalgiablog.

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Staff, yinz haven't phoned in a post yet. Pushing it a lil' bit sure, but we getcha...

Dying Alive, email me. I'll 'splain later.

Stokes...PBR? Really? I haven't had that stuff in about ten years. Summertime hockey viewing begs for some Railbender.

Stoosh's moto's speak for themselves. I was wondering what the summertime countdown would be this year after last year's obscure Penguins jersey numbers. A worthy heir.

Dan, your top three reeks of awesomeness. I've been downloading season 3 of the Venture Bros. since june.

FH is the most overrated c-blog HOF'er. Everytime I open a new post, I bet my friends 20 bucks that I won't laugh. I haven't lost any money yet...but seriously, I can sit and watch an entire Daily Show and not laugh. If that little shmuck has all the answers, why don't he run for President?

Flyer Hater said...

"FH/Dan: I would rather just bang the shit out of her, but that doesn't fit the context either...."

Well you gotta have a little foreplay first...

What the hell does it matter? We'd probably all blow it in under 30 seconds anyway.

Why the hell do you think I watched Charmed? It ain't for the great plot. Unless that plot includes me banging the shit out of Phoebe.

Flyer Hater said...

"FH is the most overrated c-blog HOF'er."

Agreed, the main vote that got me in was Peter Gammons right after he had a stroke.

eileenover said...

Does anyone watch Courage the Cowardly Dog? Eustace is hilarious.

Flyer Hater said...

If anyone has Comcast, go to the OnDemand section and search for "Jim Krenn roast". It's the roast of DVE's Krenn with a bunch of local sports guys "roasting" him. Now everyone is horribly unfunny and it's so awkward to watch but Mike Lange roasts at one point and it's so obvious that he's completely loaded.

Dan said...

fh, knocking at the door of the charmed house "i'm here for the gangbang."

jonny - is it wrong i begrudge colbert for not voicing professor impossible anymore?

stokes said...

Johnny V:

PBR is a classic beer that only gets better with age. I love the fact that they hang on the the Blue Ribbon that they won in 1893. Who am i kidding? Its cheap. That's the selling point

Honestly, this is the first time i have to disagree with you. While I'm not a regular viewer(so take this FWIW), but
I think that the Daily Show is simply a sarcastic and satirical view of the news, first and foremost, and secondly, politics. Let's not forget, Stewart hasn't been on while anyone else has been president but Bush, so it remains to be seen whether or not he'll be an equal opportunity basher.

Flyer Hater said...

"fh, knocking at the door of the charmed house "i'm here for the gangbang.""

Can I come in?

Hip said...

@guy germaine - work out your hospital issues dude. eventually you'll be in one.

Scrubs is quite realistic actually. Grey's - not in the slightest.

Flyer Hater said...

I think the Daily Show is hilarious but Stewart does come off as pompous and arrogant almost 100% of the time.

In his defense he did make fun of Obama's "epic quest" to the old world for an entire week in July.

KaylaJ said...

courage is an awesome show. i used to like the old man's sister the best, but i don't get to watch it much anymore

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Jim Krenn = Hilarious.

Courage the Cowardly Dog is amazing ...

Jon Stewart's correspondents aren't as funny anymore ... Demtri Martin and the guy from the Apple commercials are the funniest ...

I love Colbert. His book is hilarious (at least in my opinion.) He's better than Stewart.

Scrubs and The Office are 2 of my favorite comedies ... I think I just love the randomness ...

I still watch Seinfeld. George nevers get old, but I definitely never want to see him draped in velvet *smiles*

Maria said...

Kaylaj, wow, I love your picture.

stokes said...

What, exactly, goes into being a Cblog HOF'er? Besides a Peter Gammons stroke.


FH: Peter Gammons has no idea what a computer is, let alone a "blog." C'mon, dude.

I think that's what Stewart is supposed to do: be a pompous ass. Name one anchor who isn't a pompous ass:

Shepard Smith: Douche
Anderson Cooper: Look at his name!!! he's got two last names!!!
Keith Olberman: ex-ESPNer, 'nough said.

KaylaJ said...

i never liked seinfeld, could never make me laugh.

and hey, i like anderson cooper

Flyer Hater said...

Hey IHK, the jerk store called, they've run out of you

Flyer Hater said...

I would rather listen to Katie Couric doing the news than Keith Olbermann.

eileenover said...

Anderson Cooper is hot for an older guy.

stokes said...

Chicks dig Coop cause hes hot. hes got that sophisticated old guy look. he needs elbow patches.

Dan said...

i love the daily show, never really got into colbert. the correspondents do need to improve. if you liked stewart and colbert's books i recommend john hodgman (the apple guy)'s book "the areas of my expertise" there are a ton of hobo names in there.

bed time. later haters.

stokes said...

i honestly dont watch any of them. I watch Channel 11 in the morning. thats it. period.

johnny said...

One of the all-time greatest uses of [sic] that I've ever seen in a blog.

TheNWChica said...

If you're gonna go for older guys who are silver foxes....Bob Hartley. Not only is he good looking but has that French accent and is a hockey guy.

eileenover said...

Is anyone else having issues with Facebook?

KaylaJ said...

thank you maria, did you know tom brady loves goats?

i like AC cause if you ever catch him in other interviews you realize the guy is pretty down to earth and kind of a dork (ever heard him laugh? totally nerdy). shep is a fox anchor, enough said. olbermann, wow, what an egomanical ass who always has to be on.

KaylaJ said...

eileen i was earlier, it took forever to refresh and then just blanked out and said it was having errors. facebook tonight=FAILbook

Flyer Hater said...

Anderson Cooper is like 12, he just died his hair gray.

Maria said...

kaylaj, I have heard rumors. Luckily we now have proof.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Flyer Hater,Hey, The zoo called. You're due back by six or that you had sex with his wife?

Cooper isn't old, is he? More like prematured grey ...

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

Elbow patches are the mark of a crazy out-of-touch college professor. Give him some time...

Agreed, the main vote that got me in was Peter Gammons right after he had a stroke.
Very nicely played...

To think that Colbert has outgrown his britches that much that he can't voice a great cartoon character. Lame man, just lame. I wonder if he'd still lend his voice to the Ambiguously Gay duo...

Stokes PBR>>>>>Coors Light. But i'll take some heat for admitting Natty Ice is the best cheap beer that'll mess you up. Worse than Kenny Rogers' Roasters chicken (one of my favorite Kramer lines)

And it is good to see Stewart is spreading the jobbing around pretty evenly, when it comes to McCain and Obama the Almighty.

eileenover said...

That's exactly what happened to me. Facebook does something to piss me off pretty much everyday.

Flyer Hater said...

Oh yeah IHK...

Well, I slept with your wife!

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Flyer Hater, BTW, you're link sent me back to c-blog ...

Shep Smith is funny ... he's actually liberal even though he's on Fox. I like him even though I'm conservative ...

dying alive said...

@ jonny v - consider yourself emailed.

The Office is funny, but it can't touch Arrested Development. That one gets my vote for funniest show of all time. I never got into Scrubs at all. I find Zach Braff kind of grating.

Flyer Hater said...

I just became 20 dollars poorer

Flyer Hater said...

"Flyer Hater, BTW, you're link sent me back to c-blog ..."

Copying and Pasting irresponsibly is hazardous.

eileenover said...

I wish Grounded For Life was still on. Eddie is one of my all-time favorite characters.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Ha that shirt is amazing ... George is the best on that show. His awesome ability to screw up every situation and inability to see how stupid he is makes me laugh.

Grounded for Life is also a great show.

A newer show I like is Psych. Not necessarily always funny but good.

stokes said...

PBR>>>>>Coors Light any day of the week!

Never really drank Natty. Too scared i guess.


Re: Obama: Just like Tom Brady or even our own Sid Crosby, BO is stuffed down your throat as if he's the guy you oughta vote for just because he's suddenly the media darling. There's so much wrong with our political process it makes me want to barf(i swear its not the PBR).

Guy Germaine said...

Does anyone remember John Derr on sports from the Johnstown Fox station in the 90s? He was a poor man's Fedko, if that's even possible.

KaylaJ said...

AC actually just turned 41

stokes said...

In a completley unrelated, but (hopefully) hilarious note, i sharted today at work. It was uncomfortable and hilarious at the same time. Luckily, i had a spare pair of underwear-what a phrase- in my truck and could change and avoid a terrible situation. Just thought i'd share that, becuase its funny.


it's like something that Peter Gammons would do....

J.S. said...

I would love to take a bat to Keith Olbermann. You can wrap quotes around that, put a dash after it, and put my name after it. What a grade A, level 80 douche. His know-it-all, holier than thou attitude is grating. Dude is so much of a douche that he even found a way to turn his hour cameo on the Dan Patrick show (before DP made the move to FSR) into a soapbox for his agenda against Bill O'Reilly.

i.e. (and this actually happened)

DP: We'll have Bill Self later this hour...(interrupted)
KO: Speaking of Bill, did you hear what Bill O'Reilly said about me last night?

You could just hear the gasp/disgust, like "oh, now what?" in Dan Patrick's voice.

@jonnyv, the only time I can watch the daily show is when Lewis Black has a 2-3 min segment. I won't go out of my way to watch it, but if I see that he's on, I'll watch for a few.

Anderson Cooper is only 41? Geez, I thought he was in his 50s.

Chinese girl fell off the balance beam. She shouldn't worry though. By these judges' standards, she still should get a bronze.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I already know who wins ... I'm pleased by the result of this event ...

Yahoo likes to ruin my Olympic watching ... quit spoiling it! I don't see it as early! Yahoo = Mean.

J.S. said...

stokes, you are indeed right when it comes to our political process.

I could only pray that there's a relevant third party pick come November, but I know that's not gonna happen.

brndlynn said...

ihk: last night my bf and i were watching gymnastics and he told me how everything ended because he saw it on yahoo as well. i was not a happy girl. lol.

brndlynn said...

olympicsblog:
so glad that Shawn took gold. i have to admit that Nastia bothers me to no end. shes an amazing gymnast and im proud shes from the US but she seems like such a bitch. be happy that you are there and got a medal. be happy your teammate took gold and not some commie.

endrant/

KaylaJ said...

my mom seems happy when they tell you who wins that way i can tell her when to pay attention.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Brandi: Yeah, Yahoo feels the need to suck everything I have ever enjoyed about watching the Olympics since I was young.

Nastia's my favorite. She is actually pretty good friends with Shawn. She seemed pretty content with silver and sincerely happy for Shawn. Maybe I brainwashed myself into thinking that because she trained in the same place as Carly Patterson, who was my favorite last summer Olympics.

dhudzin said...

1. Flight of the Conchords

my mom likes shawn johnson, but i think its cause she looks like a cute gerbil.

Beav said...

hey guys, good story.

I was at a fundraiser tonight for Jason Baird, formerly an Erie Otter who was on a tractor that blew up causing burns to 65% of his body. The Otters threw a big fundraiser to help with his medical bills by auctioning off sweet donated stuff from NYR, NJD, NYI, Pens, Pittsburgh South, etc. A lot of former Otters came back to sign autographs and take pictures including Steve Valiquette (NYR backup tender), Tim Connolly, and Mike Rupp (NJD).

But best part of the story, the Old 2-9er donated a bunch of Pens gear, including a Crosby autographed jersey that went for over $800. But the best part was he actually came to the fundraiser and bid $1500 for a Jason Baird autograph jersey to help out in a time of need. He has never met Jason Baird but wanted to help as soon as he heard of the tragic accident.

Just wanted to show Phil Bourque some love for being very classy tonight.

Makes you proud to be a hockey fan when you see so many people come together to take care of someone in need.

Sorry for the long post.

i think nastia just has that look sometimes cause she got it from her parents who lived in a commie society of not smiling. at least, that's my guess.

Stoosh said...

Wait a minute...

BMX racing is now an Olympic event?

Holy shit, that might have made my day...only because Mr. Voiceover Guy from NBC was completely deadpan serious when he mentioned it during the "Tune in At Midnight" promo just now.

eileenover said...

I hope Shawn competes in the next Olympics and kicks everyone's ass.

Bela is almost as fun to listen to as Therrien.

Almost.

brndlynn said...

it seems like when nastia doesnt know the camera is on her she looks like shes going to take a club to each competitors knees ala tonya harding. then the little hissy fit she threw last night kinda threw me.

eileenover said...

Nice floods Bela! I'll miss listening to him.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I still think Nastia's dad looks like Marty Straka with more hair ...

The Big 2-9er is pretty awesome. That was nice of him.

Stoosh said...

@ Beav -

Awesome story about Bourque. He came to a fundraiser two summers ago for Hopewell Youth Baseball and was absolutely awesome mingling with the crowd, drumming up pricing on some of the stuff that was being auctioned off. I've met him a few times (he lives out this way), and he's friggin' great.

How was the rest of the benefit for Baird? I was at the Otters end of the season dinner the year they won the OHL championship and went to the Memorial Cup (2001-02 season), and he was in attendance as an Otters alum; he'd wrapped up his OHL career the year before.

Good hockey player and a hell of a nice kid from back when he used to play in Erie (he was the Otters' resident Ryan Malone-type player). He was supposedly doing the landscaping work as a side job to make some extra money during the summers because he was still playing minor pro hockey, and that's when the accident happened earlier this year.

KaylaJ said...

i wouldn't let that munchkin bob costas touch my medals

and eileen my mom was saying the same, he always looks so nice, until you see his socks & shoes. he's probably a long lost relative of joe pa

KaylaJ said...

ihk i was thinking slava kozlov myself, or maybe even steve yzerman + igor larionov mix

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Yzerman and Straka's lovechild? I see that *laughs*

(Sorry, Straka, you are awesome, and you, too, Yzerman)

stokes said...

J.s. our political process is seemingly based on whoever is a big deal at the time, not who's most qualified. al gore, the person, not the internet, would be huge right now because of all the positive press he's received in the past couple of years.

that being said, i'd rather not fault anyone for being partial to a particular candidate. If Candidate A is someone you relate to, someone that shares your values, or makes more sense for you, then, by all means, be my guest. But there are too many people who don't do the research, who don't make their own decisions when it comes to picking their candidate. That's what makes me mad.

Beav: i heard about that auction. That's awesome, dude. The Ol' 2-9er is a man among men.

Obligatory Tim Connolly mention

I'm out. late.

Beav said...

@ Stoosh

It was really nice. Mrs. Baird was in attendance and she gave a very emotional speech thanking everyone for their support. Mike Rupp and Valiquette auctioned off some items including four tickets to the Pens Devils home opener, NJD friends and family tickets and a meet and greet with the devils and some pens after the game.

They told some great stories about "Bairdy" like when he jumped into the entire opposing bench during a playoff game against London that basically turned the series around. Was really really nice to see a lot of guys drop everything to help out their friend, or just someone who needed it.

Sherry Bassin ended up giving 30,000 dollars to the Baird family, which made Mrs. Baird and Jason's dad pretty emotional.

I even think one lady won the Sid autographed jersey raffle and gave it to Baird's wife which pretty much summed up the night.

@ IHK

You would have died and gone to heaven, they had a Malone autographed game used stick from game one of the Stanley Cup Finals, autographed jersey too.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Beav: You didn't perhaps bid and give me the option to buy those off of you? *smiles and is hoping*

Jonny Van Mundegaarde said...

beav, when stoosh posted that link awhile ago, i was hoping a c-blogger would attend. Thanks for the write up. Absolute class act by Bourque.

Stokes, that tidbit about the sharting was def. the PBR talking, eh? Sharting sux, unless it happens to someone else (or u have spare drawers handy). My first few years at IUP was a steady diet of Ramen, mac n' cheese, and Natty Ice.

Guy Germaine, the absolute worst sportscaster ever would have to be Kurt Angle, hands down. I think he lasted like two weeks on the local Fox Pittsburgh news in the early 90's, but it was memorable. His Pizza Outlet commercials made him look like an Oscar winner by comparison.

I think the political process in this country is devolving into American Idol. Except more poorly run. And Olbermann is the definition of "Smarmy"

Shawn Johnson is cute, but it looks like she has Stimpy's happy helmet on her. Maybe buried under her hair. She smiles constantly.
And maybe that dude wouldn't have fallen off of the parallel bars if he didn't have one of those gay Jonas Brothers haircuts.

Oh, and Rage, almost forgot, last post I def. meant that as a compliment. Lots of c-bloggers get a little carried away in the jobbing, the good ones come back and make amends.

And am I the only one that pictures Bud Bundy and his collection of rubber women when FH talks about Milano?

KaylaJ said...

i'd just like to say, all this gymnastic stuff? pssht, i can do that

Beav said...

@ IHK

haha, well the jersey was a Tampa one *gags* but the stick was well out of my poor college graduate price range. Easily over $300 with like 30 minutes left on the silent auction.

@ all

If you are going to be in Youngstown Ohio for any reason on August 24th, there is going to be a charity game benefitting Jason Baird; Ken Wregget, the old 2-9er, one of the Hanson brothers, among others will be playing.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Beav: If I only remembered!! Dang ... a Tampa jersey? Were they trying to make me cry? *laughs* I would have easily have stolen money off of my parents, used whatever I had, stolen some of the money my brother has saved for college that doesn't go into his account(I know where he keeps it), and do anything for Malone's stuff ... I would have won either by bidding or cheating. Yes, I would stoop that far at a charity event for Malone stuff ... don't look at me that way. *laughs* JK ... or am I?

brndlynn said...

beav: thanks for the info on the fundraiser. always great to hear.

stokes: if you were stoosh i would commit in re: politics in this country but this time i will just say that i completely agree and well said.

Beav said...

@ IHK

I almost stole the Sid auto jersey from the old guy who was selling tickets (like you wouldn't think about it). If i had disposable income, I would have bought that Malone stick, how often do you see a game used stick from the Stanley Cup Finals on sale?

Unfortunately, many things became quickly out of my price range but I bought little stuff like pictures for the players to sign and buttons and pretty much anything I could afford.

Best idea of the night goes to the group of girls who came in the black t-shirts that said "season tickets: x amount of dollars, nachos and beer: x amount of dollars, supporting your players in the off-season: priceless" and they had Baird's name and number on the back.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Beav, you don't see those kind of things ... see if you bought it, you could have sold it to me at a higher price and made more money ... I'm a sucker for anything Ryan Malone ... I made my Mom buy newspapers for like 2 weeks for those posters of Pens players they put in them and I knew Bugsy was coming up. Also, if there is any mention in Ryan Malone in any article, they know to buy it.

Beav said...

Yeah I thought about jumping all the people that won in the parking lot but figured it was against the spirit of charity, unless I considered myself the charitable destination.

KaylaJ said...

oh beav, beav, beav, you don't jump everyone, you jump those you know you can beat! kids, old people, those with limps...

"Penguins players will report to training camp in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Sept. 16 for meetings, physicals and testing. They will hit the ice for the first time for practice on Wednesday, Sept. 17 at Mellon Arena."

from 2 totally different walks of life, yet truly exemplify all that is good within the human spirit.

Randy Pausch + John Challis.

RP: "time is all you have...and you may find out one day that you have less than you think"

JC: Courage + Believe = Life.

I recommend if you have a spare hour or so to watch Randy Pauschs' Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams...I watched it right after RP passed away a few weeks ago and that 76 minutes seemed as if it were 10. The final couple minutes were a serious 'reality check' and I'll admit...tears were shed.

With JC's passing today, the world lost another true pure soul.

Along with beavs account of what went on tonight [thanks for that]...maybe this planet is not in as bad a shape as some people believe [or want me to believe it is, anyway]

The Big K said...

Hooch is the fucking man.
Thank you for that.

It got my creative juices flowing too. I might be trying my hand at JibJab now. I've got some ideas.
