HEROES GAMEDAY

GET PUMPED FOR THE MOST ENTHRALLING THREE HOURS OF YOUR EXTENDED WEEKEND.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE STEELER GAME,
WHICH ACTUALLY CHRISTENED OUR NEW NICKNAME FOR ROETHLISBERGER:
THE BIG POTATO

ANOTHER AWESOME THREE HOURS WOULD BE THAT PENGUIN TEAM PLAYING TONIGHT IN TAMPA.

SCOOD MISSILE IS OUT WITH BRUISED RIBS.
EATON WILL PLAY BY HIMSELF IN ONE OF THE PAIRINGS.

THE USUAL REPLACEMENT FOR SCUDERI WON'T BE THERE TONIGHT.
HE'S GOT SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON:

WHICH BRINGS US TO THOSE AWESOME THREE HOURS WE ARE TOUCHING OURSELVES ABOUT.

HOLD ONTO YOUR RECTI.
IT'S GONNA BE UNREAL.

GO PENS.
"LOST" SUCKS.

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Mrs. Hockey said...

I say good luck to the guys tonight playing without Crosby, Malkin, Satan, Staal, Fleury, Orpik? (Is he playing tonight? I don't think), and Sykora.

debrisslide said...

I don't watch Heroes. Yeah.

Mrs. Hockey said...

Someone needs to punch the SOB who hurt Gonchar btw. Who was it again? David Koci?

Eric P. said...

Yes, it was David Koci

I'm sure there will be something. Godard, Boogaard, Bissonnette, Engelland, Stone, and Richmond are dressed for the Pens.

matt in dc said...

The Big Potato? Why? Because he got mashed, or looked baked?

Anyone want tickets to Wednesday night's preseason game? I have them up on eBay for about the amount paid for them with a full season plan, but am open to offers . . . .

Mrs. Hockey said...

Haha, Boogaard. I love his name.

Mrs. Hockey said...

620 WDAE (Tampa) will be playing the game again right?

eileenover said...

As much as I love Heroes, I'd rather listen to the game. Even with that idiot calling it.

Eric P. said...

mrs. hockey,

Yes

620 WDAE (Tampa) is broadcasting it

pre-game right now

Mrs. Hockey said...

Thanks Eric. I got the pregame going now.

Anyone know is Vinny is playing for Tampa tonight? I don't think he is, but I'm just checking.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Vinny isn't playing. His shoulder is still hurting him but that's not official. Marty isn't playing either.

eileenover said...

I'm not even hearing anything from that website. It better work soon.

Tony Little said...

Here's the website with the radio feed...

http://www.620wdae.com/main.html

debrisslide said...

This radio station is so homoerotic.

Bethany said...

Godard fought Koci right after he hurt Gonch. Koci lost, horridly

eileenover said...

Why the hell are they playing Beech? His display on Saturday was pathetic and embarrassing. They should just send him to Wilkes-Barre right now.

Nick said...

GO PENS!

nikki said...

fuuuuuck
times like these make me despise living in canada (as well as nhl center ice which isnt showing ANY games)
im going to have to (yet again) resort to the 'game summary' thing from nhl.com
god help me

harshdiddyness said...

oh my god. worst national anthem ever.

Nick said...

1-0 tampa already

jcol87 said...

Shit

eileenover said...

Joke? Seriously?

Chubs said...

The word 'recti' is just plain fun. If Caputi names his kid Recti someday, he'd have the single most fun name ever.

Hush, I'm putting off studying.

nikki said...

have you seen the guy who sang for san jose last year? now he was horrible, calgary's goalie's face during it is so priceless

Mrs. Hockey said...

Fuck you Sabourin

debrisslide said...

worst game ever.

Mrs. Hockey said...

....this is going to be a long game. =X

debrisslide said...

Phil Esposito sounds like a rapist.

Help Me Rhonda said...

Since some people asked about Ruuts the other day...

Ruutu caught Dubinsky with his head down and is annoying people. The announcers keep making mention to Jagr, too.

Nick said...

good fight right there at least it sounded like it, and serious its 1-0

Nick said...

The Penguins bitch Kolzig is in net for Tampa

Mrs. Hockey said...

Why don't we have atleast ONE of our "Good" players playing. Even if just Satan or someone was playing I'd be fine. Whatever. Just preseason, right?

harshdiddyness said...

Hey the last game started like this but we scored and they ended up winning. Maybe they scored early and we'll win.

eileenover said...

TK is going to bury one.

Mrs. Hockey said...

Anyone else having a hard time hearing 'Malone' and having to think he's not with us?

BlacknGold66 said...

I just hope that the Cheerleader's Real "fire-starting" Mom makes an appearance this season.

What a rack on her.

eileenover said...

You don't consider Talbot good? Or Tank?

Nick said...

Pens got a thug filled line-up tonight with Godard, Boogard, Cooke (i think), Engelland, Stone, and Bissonnette.

Mrs. Hockey said...

Tank and Max are good, but they aren't what I consider Sykora, Staal, Malkin, Crosby or Satan to be.

Kennedy sounds pretty fine tonight though.

Nick said...

I do not miss Malone, hes overrated.
Go-go and Letang on the point on the PP with Pessonen, Kennedy, and not sure who the 5th man is

nikki said...

i wanna see the 24-25-26 line get'r done

Help Me Rhonda said...

Thugs ftw.

debrisslide said...

Kennedy is going to bury one and probably punch someone's brain out.

Mrs. Hockey said...

Hal Gill on a PP? Okay...

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Malone is amazing ... he's wearing the A. Damn that hurts.

eileenover said...

debris I've never told you how much I love your avatar.

Nick said...

Penguins line up tonight = Flyers typical line up, a bunch of thugs

Mrs. Hockey said...

I know. I heard Malone's wearing the 'A'......I kinda miss him. =/


Another powerplay! Woo!

debrisslide said...

Come on PP unit!

debrisslide said...

@eileen - everyone is suddenly noticing the avatar, haha. Thanks! lolcat generator FTW

Mrs. Hockey said...

Come on Letang!

nikki said...

who's on the PP?

Mrs. Hockey said...

I'm gonna call it now. Our first goal will be from Letang.

nikki said...

besides hal gill apparently haha

Mrs. Hockey said...

nikki said...

i mean players haha. who's running the show when sid and geno aren't there?

eileenover said...

It sounds like Legame is running the PP Nikki.

Help Me Rhonda said...

Sabu!

fleuryous said...

Why can't I hear anything on the feed?!

Mrs. Hockey said...

Wow. Dany Sabourin knows how to make a save? =O

Mrs. Hockey said...

Dammit. That PP is going to hurt us this game. 0-2

Mrs. Hockey said...

Tampa Power play

debrisslide said...

penalty for what?

Mrs. Hockey said...

Somebody for charging. I didn't hear who.

eileenover said...

They should penalize Koci for all his late hits. I think Godard needs to set him straight again.

eileenover said...

Heinrich

eileenover said...

Henrich oops. Shows how much I payed attention to him at training camp.

Mrs. Hockey said...

Sabu sounds kinda sharp tonight (besides that first early goal). I hope I'm not jinxing him. lol

Mrs. Hockey said...

Trip on Lightning. Penguins PP I think.

eileenover said...

Sabu is a lot better than people give him credit for. He looked good at training camp. We could have a lot worse.

Mrs. Hockey said...

Yeah. Pittsburgh Power play. Let's pray for a goal.

Ali said...

I absolutely hate listening to this Tampa guy --- ugh.

Mrs. Hockey said...

Eileenover......I hate Sabourin though. Absolutely hate him. I was a big Conklin fan. I've loved Conklin since his Edmonton days. I miss him. =(

Mrs. Hockey said...

Eileenover......I hate Sabourin though. Absolutely hate him. I was a big Conklin fan. I've loved Conklin since his Edmonton days. I miss him. =(

Mrs. Hockey said...

Eileenover......I hate Sabourin though. Absolutely hate him. I was a big Conklin fan. I've loved Conklin since his Edmonton days. I miss him. =(

Mrs. Hockey said...

Letaaaang! I CALLED IT!

Help Me Rhonda said...

LeTang??

fleuryous said...

LEGAAAAAAAME

debrisslide said...

LeGame. <3

eileenover said...

Yes!

eileenover said...

Yeah it makes a lot of sense to hate a goalie who won 10 games for the Pens last year. I liked Conklin too, but he's gone now, get over it. I'm so sick of people ragging on Sabu all the time. He's our backup, get used to it.

Help Me Rhonda said...

fleuryous said...

And Thomas, my FC Boy.


WOOOOOOOOO.

fleuryous said...

Sabourin's good--Sabulous.

HAHAHA.


Fleuryous and Sabulous.

okay, I love it.


And Maloner had the high-stick.

Mrs. Hockey said...

I don't trust Sabu at all. That's just that. Some people have their least favorite players, mine is Sabourin. Get over it. People are alwasy going to have their least favorite.

Help Me Rhonda said...

Nikki, can you see this?

Thomas the goal.

debrisslide said...

Thanks Bugsy. :)

eileenover said...

Sabulicious

nikki said...

yes i can! thank you
it gives a bit more detail which is nice :)

Help Me Rhonda said...

Score!!

Mrs. Hockey said...

Talbot!!!

fleuryous said...

Bill Thomas is one of the nicest guys ever.


AND YES, TALBYYYYYYY.

debrisslide said...

I love how this guy didn't even tell us that Talbot just scored.

fleuryous said...

I hope Thomas stays on the Pens, because having a native boy is always nice...and he's a sweet kid. He's doing pretty well in this game. Good for him!

nikki said...

MAXXXXX, right when i opened up that real time thing it said that he had scored :D :D ooh baby

eileenover said...

Another fight geez.

Raybin said...

Someone needs to cockpunch these announcers.

jovi said...

richman needs a little work, let Al steer his own ship

debrisslide said...

These fights are so high school.

Raybin said...

I love how the color commentator is shocked--SHOCKED!--that someone would come off the bench in hockey just to fight.

What a douche.

debrisslide said...

Good job in the first period, boys.

Raybin said...

I missed most of the first period...do I gather from comments that Legame is quarterbacking the power play?

niiiiiiiiice.

eileenover said...

"If that isn't instigating I don't know what the hell is."

Nick said...

Letang is the best #58 in Pittsburgh sports history!

debrisslide said...

God forbid hockey involve physical confrontation, right?

Raybin said...

God forbid hockey involve physical confrontation, right?

Judging from what I saw out of Stamkos when he attempted to hit anyone on Saturday night, I don't know if Lightning hockey involves physical confrontation.

If you starved Mary-Kate Olsen for six weeks, she could still deliver more force on a check. My section was actively laughing at him.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

"richman needs a little work, let Al steer his own ship"

You know it's Richmond and Hal, right?

eileenover said...

raybin, I can't believe you were at the game and didn't meet up with us. Lame, like Kevin.

Raybin said...

"Authentic" Philly cheesesteaks...in Tampa Bay.

Even the commercials on this station bother me.

Mrs. Hockey said...

These guys are the biggest homers ever.

Nick said...

Kolzig = Pens bitch

debrisslide said...

I wish I could have seen these games but it's easy to tell even through the biased announcing that Stamkos is a joke.

Help Me Rhonda said...

I LOL'd in real life at the cheesesteak comment, raybin.

Raybin said...

@eileen

Yeah, I know, I feel lame as shit. It's why I'm going to make a sincere effort to come to Primantiblog after the season opener.

I'll be at the Devils game on November 29th and the Red Wings game in February if anyone plans on going to those....

And I'll try to be at others whenever I can pick off reasonably priced tickets.

Fear not, CBloggers, ye shall yet get to bask in my glory.

The Big K said...

Thomas is making a case for himself to make this team. Hope he does, because we need some Pittsburghers on this team now that Malone is gone.

Oh, plus Beech sucks dick.

eileenover said...

We have a c-blog group going to the Red Wings game.

The Big K said...

Not such a shitty period.

Just play consistent hockey boys.

Nick said...

Split squad in hockey? Thats gay. and they are playing in kansas city haha I guess they need some team to play there

Raybin said...

Speaking of Stamkos and people who can hit....

The best moment of the game for me was watching Orpik bear down on Stamkos and, when he realized who he had lined up, seeing his face light up like a Christmas tree with a big ol' grin.

The Seeker said...

Raybin,

It's a good thing that LeGame redeemed himself with that goal after coughing-up the puck in the first minute of the game that lead to the Tampa goal.

By the way...hello Cbloggers! Life begins again ;-)

Mrs. Hockey said...

I'm liking this Thomas kid. He sounds good. I wish I could SEE him play though. It's kinda hard to understand what exactly is going on with these knuckle heads announcing.

Raybin said...

You know why the Tampa Bay organization is so lame?

They're advertising Barry Melrose as a legitimate reason to buy a ticket.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Seeker, hey!! Welcome back!

Stamkos has Malone on his wing for a reason. He's not very physical, he got whipped by Caputi in a fight before ... he'll fight if necessary, though. I'll give him that.

Nick said...

What is a Cblogger?

debrisslide said...

You know why the Tampa Bay organization is so lame?

Not to mention the deep husky radio voice saying his name erotically.

eileenover said...

Was that meant to be sarcastic?

debrisslide said...

Phil Esposito needs to shut up about this "instigator" thing.

Raybin said...

SHUT UP ABOUT RICHMOND AND INSTIGATING YOU FUCKING DOUCHEBAG

Mrs. Hockey said...

Shit.

Nick said...

former penguins oullette scores, i know his name spelt wrong

fleuryous said...

DAMMIT.

debrisslide said...

Fuck this shit.

Raybin said...

Surprised Ouellet managed to stop making out with his teammates long enough to shoot.

The Seeker said...

I had myself cryogenically frozen 1 hour after game 6 of the SCF ended with instructions to thaw me out last Saturday @ 7:15

Tony Little said...

Omelette

The Seeker said...

Ouellet = Garbageman

Raybin said...

This guy is doing his best Emrick impression whenever there's a shot or goal and is serving up a whole big batch of FAIL.

Raybin said...

A 10 pack of tickets starting at $109.

I guess the perks of being the fan of a joke organziation is that the tickets come cheap as an off-strip Vegas hooker.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Seeker: Ha! You missed a lot then! *smiles*

He couldn't score to save his soul when he was a Penguin ... joke.

Nick said...

What does the C stand for in Cblogger?

KaylaJ said...

lord, the phrase "hockey bay" is just embarrassing.

debrisslide said...

I wish I knew what the fuck was going on. Fedotenko needs a shot on goal.

I really hope it doesn't stay this close, but if it does come to shootout at least we have LeGame.

nikki said...

is it true that we have no shots in the 2nd thus far? ahhhh

debrisslide said...

cblog = commentorblog = the comments section

people who comment are cbloggers.

KaylaJ said...

who is the guy who sounds like he has emphasyma? (yes, i know i butchered that)

fleuryous said...

c=comment


KEEP BILL THOMAS ON THE TEAM. haha


I hope Kennedy gets a goal.

fleuryous said...

And Sabu is playing pretty lovely.

debrisslide said...

kayla, it's Phil Esposito.

Raybin said...

Sabu is indeed all business tonight.

eileenover said...

THANK YOU. I love me some Sabu.

Nick said...

brett favre = overrated, GO CHARGERS!

J.S. said...

how are you listening to the game? WDAE has the TB Rays listed.

I have the Rags vs the Sens, and their intermission show is doodoo.

Nick said...

waa they called a bad offsides, stfu announcers

Raybin said...

The USS Hal Gill continues his beastly penalty killing ways.

KaylaJ said...

debris i thought maybe, but wasn't totally sure. of course i'd rather hear him that the main geek and the kid in the background who keeps screaming

Raybin said...

@j.s.

The Rays thing is all lies. Click on "listen live" or whatever and join in the fun

Nick said...

well that TB channel has the lighning game on

The Seeker said...

"A 10 pack of tickets starting at $109. I guess the perks of being the fan of a joke organziation is that the tickets come cheap as an off-strip Vegas hooker."

SERIOUSLY!!

Of course with Melrose behind the bench, it's like "Last Comic Standing"

Nick said...

Sabu robs the overrated rookie!

Tony Little said...

yeah, if you go to the site you just need to click on LISTEN LIVE on the top(ish) left

debrisslide said...

finally "WHAT A SAVE MADE BY SABOURIN." highway robbery motherfuckers.

Raybin said...

If Sabu will promise to play like this all season, Conklin is welcome to go play Elroy's towel boy in the crime capital of the world.

Nick said...

penguins are changing goalies! i think

fleuryous said...

Sabu is playing like a FIEND.


I'm glad for him.
He's stepping it up, bitches.

J.S. said...

I did, and I get a big rays logo.

The Seeker said...

Sabu = The COBRA!

Nick said...

How is this a TV time out? This game is not on TV anywhere

KaylaJ said...

sounds like sabu is now on the fbi's list of most wanted for robbery

Raybin said...

He's stepping it up, bitches.

Yup, that's the sign of a true competitor. He knows everyone's gonna be comparing him to Conklin and he has to be up to the challenge.

J.S. said...

Matt Zaba is in for the Rags.

Probably the first time that i've seen a goalie with the number 98

Nick said...

the rays thing comes up, but they are playin the pens game

christina said...

wow. i got the radio feed up and running right as Sabu was committing highway robbery....talk about baptism by fire to Mishkin....

evening, cblog.

debrisslide said...

Click on the Rays logo. It's a link. I swears.

Nick said...

curry in net

Anna. said...

i love Sabu.

Eric P. said...

John Curry is in goal for the Pens now

The Seeker said...

j.s.,

Click HERE

debrisslide said...

Any idea why we put Curry in?

Nick said...

Has the Cooke-Talbot-Fedotenko even played? I haven't hear anything about it all game

Raybin said...

Curry's first save is another robbery.

TRADE FLEURY

wooooooooooooooooooooo

jcol87 said...

@ j.s. - Try opening it in Internet Explorer if you aren't. It wasn't working for me on Firefox

debrisslide said...

John Curry ftw.

Nick said...

its preseason, why risk sabu. hes had a lot of work and curry needs to get some game time.

debrisslide said...

Talbot and Fedotenko have been mentioned, I haven't heard Cooke's name yet. But I don't trust these fuckers to know who's who.

Nick said...

stone beats a race for icing

christina said...

@ debris -
there's an interview with Cooke on the pens.tv page - don't think he made the trip.


is it "bring your kids to the broadcast booth" day in tampa?

debrisslide said...

Curry is all business.

eileenover said...

My feed must be slow. You are commenting faster than what I'm hearing.

And Curry is a beast.

Raybin said...

Well, dinner's about ready, kids so y'all will have to somehow continue on without me.

MAN ALIVE, is it good to be back talking hockey.

J.S. said...

that little girl yellling "wets go whitening!" needs to be ejected, or at least move her away from the mic.

as you can tell, I got it to work (thanks kayla for the direct link)

J.S. said...

and thanks everybody else for helping out.

jcol87 said...

I hear the Tampa Bay Lightning are back.

J.S. said...

LOL, they're pimping Melrose in the commercials. I thought they wanted people to go to the games.

debrisslide said...

Koci vs. Bissonnette

Mrs. Hockey said...

I don't like Sabu, but I do give credit where credit is due. Sabu has had a hell of a night tonight. Congrats.

And Curry is a beast! Wooooooo.

J.S. said...

The Rays thing is all lies

^^

Their season or the banner ad? I still don't believe how well they did.

Espo: "I just don't get it"....then get out of the fucking booth! I thought you played the game.

jovi said...

why are the annoucers acting like they've never been to a hockey game?


LET THEM FIGHT ...its freakin' pre-season!
