I just shit myself watching that.

Oh come on, they couldn't photoshop Hossa out of that? WTF? Use the f-ing clone brush..

maxwellmoseley said...

That was awesome.

christina said...

holy motherfucking crap.

87 buries it.

Don Cherry is the Hugh Hefner of Playgirl...

ripney66 said...

He doesn't ever want to be in that photograph again, I don't ever want to SEE that photograph again.

Do it.

btumpak said...

wow that was sick. goosebumps

debrisslide said...

Crosby will be a man possessed this year.

BlacknGold66 said...

That was fucking unreal.

Gumchow18 said...

That was spine tingling.

Rage said...

THAT was fucking MONEY

mmg said...

Gave me the chills...

James said...

can we watch the game against jokerit ...??

if so were can we!!!

J.S. said...

Keeping Hossa in there is what makes that commercial even better.

Yeah, it does sound odd, but knowing that a certain player in that pic bolted because he "thought (the team) has the best chance to win the Cup" makes the tone in Sid's voice sound kinda angry.

Dr. Turkleton said...

thanks for the chest bump: BNG + j.s.

Mario supporting the team by wearing a TANK.

He also looks like he's in......you know the rest!

xuscbausp said...

Rags=stunned haha.

1-0 russians. can this really last?

xuscbausp said...

by the way;
awesome commercial

debrisslide said...

P.S. Hey staff, I think the caption to your header graphic is supposed to say, ". . .worth MORE than your life."

Still hilarious shit though. Lemieux looks like a god, hahaha.

xuscbausp said...

King Henrik sucking.

2-nil.

Rick M. said...

I think having Hossa, Malone and Ruutu in that photo make it mean even more.

Bing = Possessed

Pensgirl said...

How many times do you think he threw up reading those lines?

If I were HCMT, I would take that clip and at random times through the season I would have it played. When they start slipping. When they're on a high. When they most expect it, least expect it. Calling a guy into his office, and just play it instead of saying anything. Pump it into the locker room. And for the love of god, show it on the jumbotron.

What a motivator.

Rage said...

Is it wrong to pull for a KHL team over the Rags?


Go Pens!

Rage said...

Well said, Pensgirl!!!

xuscbausp said...

no, rage, its not at all haha

TheNWChica said...

I want to see it!!! *whines* Damn these firewalls!

fierst78 said...

is it me or does it seem like he looks diretly at hossa - almost out of pure anger .... this commercial is definitely life changing

Anthony said...

That shit was the maaaaaaaaad notes!

Sorry for the Jay and Silent Bob reference, I'm from Jersey. =/

Seriously though, awesome commercial. Goosebumps.

Anthony said...

On another note: Good to see the team Malkin and Sykora left behind to play for the Pens is still better than the Rangers.

xuscbausp said...

3-0!!

WHOOOOAAAAAAAA
WHOOOOAAAAAAAA

Rage said...

rags down 3-0 w00t

Anthony said...

Henrik looks terrible. And I don't think anyone on Magnitogorsk is over 5'9".

xuscbausp said...

what a save!

Anthony said...

Oh, gay. They scored and played the stupid goal song from the Garden.

Dr. Turkleton said...

did I hear Al Trautwig say earlier in the 1st period, that if Metallurg Magnitogorsk beats the Rangers®...that the owner is going to pay each Metallurg player a $100,000 bonus...showing that the KHL can compete with the NHL?

This may be the ONLY time I root for the Rags for a comeback and win: so this doesn't act to fuel the KHLs fire that they can legitimately compete for NHL players using contract-leverage to play overseas/back home.

Anyone catch the kid in the Penguins away jersey in the left corner of the rink?...it's sporting an 'A', so I'm guessing it's an old Crosby jersey and not a LeClair model [where is Johnny Vermont these days?]

Dr. Turkleton said...

*sorry, more specific LeClair linky

debrisslide said...

From the Pens website about practice at the Globe today:
The players were all business, calm and focused on the instructions being parsed out by the coaches.

All business is right, motherfuckers.

71crush said...

WHere are you guys watching the Rags?

Rage said...

I think that if the rags lose they should be shipped off en masse to the KHL. I don't give a shit, I hope the Rags get smoked. ftw

Rage said...

NHL Network

Dr. Turkleton said...

71crush...

NHL Network...using the Rangers® MSG feed.

xuscbausp said...

and here come the rags...

Rage said...

Yup, apparently the slackers have figgered out that they might need to start playing hockey fo real...now I wonder if the Magnitorsk(?) owner is gonna start telling his players about the torture/executions if they lose?

Dr. Turkleton said...

...banished to Siberia if they lose?

wait a sec.

never mind.

Rage said...

@turk....isn't that what happened to Jags? lol...nicely played

71crush said...

Thanks!

Rage said...

Did I just hear the "Stillers of the KHL"?!?!?!?!

anachronsounds said...

What is Swedish for my watch is worth more than your life?
= "Min klocka är värd mer än ditt liv".

xuscbausp said...

eh freakin rags

Dr. Turkleton said...

rage...

hahaha...I didn't think about Jags!!!...I was playin' the Magnitogorsk already IS in Siberia angle.

Wow.

what a finish! Callahan of the Rags scores on a semi-breakaway with 21 seconds to go.

Nick Saia (usa) said...

fuck yeah

Rage said...

Meh, at least Bill Daly doesn't have to eat a plate full of Russian shit...wish he'd throw a nice forearm shiv though.

dunnmx12 said...

can't wait for all the homo flyer fans an Bing haters to bash this commercial... let the crying begin

Rage said...

@dr turk-wonder how all those siberian tractor factory puck bunnies stack up to New York bunnies...lol

Rage said...

That is an awfully sweeet commercial. I gotta d/l that thing

P.O. said...

Hello,

I have 2 tickets for the Thursday Oct 16th game vs the Washington Capitals. I am using one, so the second is available. I am looking for a lady to accompany me. No "favors" or "activities" insinuated or expected. Just the game. I am in my 30's so you know. Message me if you are interested. Please include a picture of yourself and tell me who your favorite Penguin was last year..

steelcity120 said...

no word can describe that 30 seconds

I Have Kasparaitis said...

P.O.: Looks like I'm in luck! *sarcasmblog*

"insinuated or expected" but he's hoping!

That's a bit scary, not going to lie ... as a woman, I would never consider answering that.

That Sid commercial makes me sad for an obvious reason and the second is no Sidstache *shakes head*

Max Power said...

Somebody should reply to that guy's add just to mess with him.

Does anyone know of a feed for the game against Jokerit?

The boy lovers in the Allegheny tax something or another released THE LIST of pubs and restaurants not paying the drink tax. Support these establishments! Seriously because they're probably going to get sued.

Max Power said...

Tampon Bay at it again

Flyer Hater said...

I hate Doc Emrick.

wilsmith said...

dude, po, why did you have to out me like that?

Raybin said...

I hate Doc Emrick.

He hates you.

And, fyi, he can't hear you...he blew out his own ear drums by screaming at the top of his lungs for years.

debrisslide said...

At least that guy is trying. Poor sucker. I'm trying to find someone to go to the Boston Bruins game with me on 10.20 with the Pens, but. . .no one in this fucking town likes hockey. I saw a guy on the street a few days ago in a Bruins shirt and I almost died. I didn't beg him to come to the game with me though, haha.

Heck Kleck said...

any word on webcasts of tomorrows game?

Anna. said...

Tearjerker.

fleuryous said...

That commercial gave me hard on.
And I don't even have a dick.


Life-changing.


It got me so pumped.
DO IT.

xuscbausp said...

best.comment.ever.

Max Power said...

Malkin interview

Dr. Turkleton said...

I was just starting to forget about Frank Caliendo and his commercials on TBS from last years baseball playoffs...well, it looks like every other inning break, he's baaaa aaack!

I'm guessing a Dane Cook revival when Fox's baseball coverage begins isn't too far behind, either.

rage said:
wonder how all those siberian tractor factory puck bunnies stack up to New York bunnies...

•overall looks: advantage: NY.
•keeping you warm at night: advantage: Siberia.
•facial hair: push.



craigslist pens ticketblog...

some female should take the dude up on the offer [if it's a free ticket]...go to the game...get to your seats...excuse yourself to go to the 'little girls room'...change into different Pens gear and go to a Standing Room Only spot or scope out an empty seat someone else in the Mellon.

Attending a Pens game...for free: Mission Accomplished.

Flyer Hater said...

Raybin, if Gary Thorne would have been on there calling a Red Wings goal it wouldn't have hurt as much. But that pre-pubescent fuck who sounds like he called that goal right after popping a pimple and jerking off for the first time irks me to no end.

Dr. Turkleton said...

having Gary Thorne on the NHL EA series is a tease.

I wonder if he has contractual/competition issues with MLB or whomever that he cannot broadcast NHL games...

Versus/NBC is really missing the boat not having him on either of their #1 broadcast teams, if he doesn't.

The Goon Blogger said...

@Doc

I don't know about NHL games, but when ESPN shows The Frozen Four and has Gary Thorne rocking the mic it's pretty much the greatest thing in the world.

Thorne/Clement is/was the best commentator duo on the national scene for any sport.

Annie said...

Debris - I have tickets for me and my dad to see the game on 10/20, but there's a possibility he won't be able to go... so I'd have an extra ticket... just so you know... ;)

Max Power said...

dr. t

You forgot one more puckbunny statistic:

Probability of having a penis: advantage NY

Annie said...

BTW, that commercial... chillsblog... I almost threw up. I hope the whole team carries that feeling with them this year to make sure it doesn't happen again.

And this is way back from the last post, but I've been gone all day...

... If there can be a subtle link in the side bar to a pic of two half naked girls making out, for the benefit of male cbloggers, might we girls be able to have one of the guys in their skivvies (or not, as the case may be)? If such a photograph exists, of course. ;)

Max Power said...

Annie

Do you really want to see 2 dudes "fencing?"

Annie said...

Max - haha, that's not what I meant! I was talking about that quote in the last post,

"There they were — Fleury, Thomas and Dupuis posing in their Swedish skivvies” wrote Shelly Anderson of the Post-Gazette. “But they had only bought three pair, so Sydor was left to strategically place the team’s Viking helmet for the picture.

Though I realize you were probably being sarcastic, I wanted to make it clear. ;)

onesizedrummer said...

only thing better would have been if he bitched slapped hossa


--fritowill

Heck Kleck said...

That commercial tossed out more Goosebumps than R.L Stine .

Flyer Hater said...

Thorne/Clement changed lives. They were just great together. I know a lot of people hated Thorne because he mispronounced names every once in a while but I'll trade in a Fedotenkov for a "SKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAORES" from Doc any day of the freaking week.

akus said...

Wonder if Malkin watched Metallurg today?

As i watched the NY/ Metallurg game it was mentioned that fighting was not allowed,or it is allowed but would result in being tossed out of the game?
I am not really sure.

Over at FOF, the Pens/Jokerit game is "previewed" and someone mentioned Sami Helenuis,
apparently the league Jokerit is in, the FEL, does allow fighting.

I did some reading over at eurohockey.net on the KHL rules, i found nothing about fighting , but did find this.

"The new league set some other minor standards too. For example, now the coaches of the team can’t wear informal jeans in Bykov’s style, but will have to wear an elegant suit."

*Bykov was a center who played on the Soviet national team and later Team Russia*

@goon blogger,
...Thorne/Clement is/was the best commentator duo on the national scene for any sport...


Sweeeeet music!! @ GT

Brett said...

outstanding. All of the new ones this year are great. they've got a "is this the year" for everyteam.

And one HELL Of an awesome Rangers game in the Victoria Cup game. Go watch the replays!

KaylaJ said...

i miss gary & bill esp when bill made gary laugh. i remember one game back in the day where they were talking about jagr's mother living in the states and jagr's father was visiting and bill said "he's over for a meal" and gary needed about 5 minutes to compose himself.

debrisslide said...

Haha annie. . .if you really honestly can't find ANYONE ELSE who would want such an opportunity, hit me up on facebook. I'd ask everyone else in your life first though, haha. *blush*

Stoosh said...

Down on the Farm update...

1.)

King Shero at it again...

I know Max Power mentioned it before, but you have to love the acquisition of Tampa Bay's fifth-round pick in the 2009 draft for defenseman Michal Sersen. Sersen was an offensive defenseman who had decent skills, skated pretty well but his defensive prowess allegedly made Hans Jonsson look like Scott Stevens.

Yes, I know it was just a fifth-round pick, but consider that the Pens had previously dealt their fifth-round pick in '09 to Toronto for Hal Gill. This pick might turn out to be better since Tampa is likely going to lose most of their games 7-5 this year.

And it should be mentioned that King Shero has now acquired/stolen the Lightning's 3rd and 5th round picks in 2009 for the RIGHT TO TALK to Ryan Malone and Gary Roberts as well as a defenseman who might be too sofffff for the NHL.

B.)

Ryan Stone = done.

So says WB/S resident badass reporter Jon Bombulie, who said today in his blog that Stone was never actually put on waivers, but kept on the NHL roster because some teams had contacted King Shero about him. Shero is reportedly trying to trade him, and the speculation from JB is that Stone may be dealt by tomorrow or just put on waivers.

THREE)

Kris Beech didn't report to Wilkes-Barre. He cleared waivers, so there's a chance he may be headed overseas to join Ramzi Abid, Rico Fata, Konstantin Koltsov, Ross Lupaschuk and his other washed-up former Penguin bretheren in the Euro leagues.

Stoosh said...

I'm watching the replay of the 2004 Cup Final (Calgary vs. Tampa) called by Thorne and Clement. ABC had the broadcast. This was the last NHL game played before the lockout so when this ended, no one knew when hockey would be coming back.

These guys together are so much better than anyone Versucks or NBC rolls out, it's not even funny.

Stoosh said...

is it me or does it seem like he looks diretly at hossa - almost out of pure anger

Ummm....no, not really.

I'm not picking on your post, fierst, and I don't blame fans for still being pissed about the Hossa situation. But my guess is that the first person associated with the Pens to move on after Hossa made his decision was Sid.

If Crosby is about one thing, it's about the concept of team above anything else. My guess is that in Sid's mind, the moment Hossa decided he didn't want to come back was the moment that Sid stopped worrying about Hossa and started spending his Pens-related thoughts on the players who still wanted to be here and the players who got on board.

That doesn't mean Sid wasn't burned by Hossa's decision. To the contrary, I think he really wanted Hossa to come back and I don't blame him. And I'm sure in any future matchups with Hossa down the road - no matter who Hossa's playing for - Crosby will be playing with that same extra gear he seems to find against the Flyers.

Quite frankly, I don't think Sid gives a flying fuck about Marian Hossa anymore. What will drive Crosby and hopefully the rest of that team this year is exactly what he said in the commercial.

Personally, in light of what happened last year, I have a feeling we're going to see Sidney Crosby's game go to an entirely new level this year, and I don't think he's going to be the only one of this team to do that.

Max Power said...

Yeah stoosh, I was pleased with it too. Shero is either a genius or a mad scientist. I am strangely comfortable with either one. If he had this planned from the begining... My perspective on the universe as whole has just changed.

Dr. Turkleton said...

a few of the many: Hockey Falls Commercials....

Clement, Clement: Hands of Cement.

Rookies.

Sweet Jacket.

Look At Her.

Vacation.

stoosh...

and it's just the rights to Sersen, not even under any type of contract...maybe Greg Malone told Bill & Ted that since he drafted 'em, he could sign 'em.

Gary Roberts ate Barney

Max Power said...

Correction, that was to be, "the universe as a whole..."

Max Power said...

dr. t

You have no Idea how old you just made me feel by posting those.

Lori said...

Oh, it's the year. It's the fucking year.

Dr. Turkleton said...

hahaha...sorry, mad max!

YOU feel old????

I was originally looking for any footage of the Easter Epic is which during one of the overtime intermissions, they cut to Thorne & Clement in their booth with their ties around their heads....the very next OT intermission, they showed them back prim & proper with their ties and shirts in All Business form. Guess a member of the ESPN brass didn't like their Animal House-ish antics.

Now I feel really old!!!

This was back in 1987...I was 17.

eileenover said...

Unreal

Max Power said...

Fair enough dr. t. I was only 6 at that time. I make a request on the record to have my previous statement in re to dr. t's statement redacted.

brndlynn said...

i have no words to describe what i just saw. i am practically shaking i am so excited for the season to start. drop the damn puck already!

jefe p said...

badass commercial.

im almost ready for the season.

center ice. check.

nhl network. check.

versus. sucks.

looks like i could miss up to 8 games if center ice/dish network blackouts the games on VS.
(minus going to the bar immediately after work)


go pens!!

Help Me Rhonda said...

That was eerie and hot all at the same time.

LOL @ Annie almost throwing up.



LET'S GO PENS!

J.S. said...

did I hear right? free center ice for the first two weeks of theseason

eileenover said...

If anyone even cares, I don't think I'll be on c-blog for a long time. Bye.

jefe p said...

yeah j.s. they always have a free preview.

but id rather pay for the whole thing straight up and still miss 9.8% of the games thanks to VS and blackouts. 3 seasons ago it was fine cause no one cared to air the pens. but look at us now!


eileenover and out??

fleuryous said...

I still can't get over these commerciaaaaals.


It's our year, boys--it's our year.


DROP THE PUCK

Adrienne said...

Fucking awesome

Brett said...

eileenover,

What? Was it something we said? Don't go..

Kent said...

I love the fact that all the noticable players in that photo are gone besides 87. The other commercials in the series are just as sick.

Dr. Turkleton said...

eileenover and out??

tried not to laugh....but that was

TOO.
FUNNY.

not laughing @ you, eileen...

The Goon Blogger said...

I'm not sure which commercial gives me more Goosebumps: This one or the legendary Cup Raise montage commercial from the playoffs last year.

Annie said...

The Cup Raise commercial was amazing. I loved the One Play one too.

Anyone remember this one from about 2000?

Pond of Dreams

Utterly cheesetastic!

It had outtakes too. Notice how when Howe gets stuck in the snow, Mario helps him out while Wayne just stands there and laughs.

PS - Eileen, don't go! :( Hope everything is okay.

Kimberly. said...

Very creative, I admit.

But we should just move on from that event and not talk about it.
