Go Pens.

Jordan Staal is going to rape.

PittHockey said...

I voted Carrot.

PittHockey said...

preds have to host a disco dance to raise funds to operate. dear lord, get that team out of there.

kstewy16 said...

If you didn't vote carrot, you don't deserve to be here.

jovi said...

Patrick Swayze ?
really?
are we talking roadhouse or red dawn?

Matt said...

I voted carrot too...I moved my mouse towards "Too early to tell" yet an unexplainable force drove my mouse downwards and my finger clicked involuntarily on "Carrot". Damn it she has a hold on me!!!!!!!!!!!

Matt said...

@jovi....it has to be Red Dawn

Matt said...

Matt... we may have to thrown down, Highlander style

Matt said...

quick side note...since I can't watch the pens game being down in Philly I just caught the national anthem for the BCS game. Why do "soul" singers always feel the need to add a bunch of guttural howls to the anthem? Just sayin....

dying alive said...

Carrot +1

The expression on Matt Cooke's face in the picture at the top of the front page is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

PittHockey said...

Jimmerson > this joke

Pensblog Staff said...

patrick swayze.
Barbara Walters blog

Matt said...

lol@Matt...I will now identify myself as "Matt2"

PittHockey said...

they're using dark knight music in their intro video.

TIME TO KILL

M. Vanderlasser said...

Hey, if you're watching FSN, was "Walt Staggers" Steiggy?

If so, that was pretty funny...I hope that someone recoded that!

WTF, a replay of the war room behind the scenes?

jovi said...

@Matt, i'd go w/ red dawn also.


lol - there can be only one

Matt said...

If you're Matt2, I'll be MattB

Matt2 said...

There we go...peace is restored to Cblog

PittHockey said...

nashville is celebrating arnott's 1000th game.


the only thing they have to celebrate this year.

kstewy16 said...

why the hell are they playing the war room thing? Puck should be dropping and we're watching this 2 month old shit? C'mon FSN, don't shit out on us now.

Rage said...

i too chose carrot, and swayze is looking at little orange in that photo...just sayin

Game Douche

DO IT

Go Pens!

Duff said...

8:10.. . WTF???
Drop the puck!

PittHockey said...

you're not missing anything. nashville is holding everything up/

rebecca said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO let's go

Steve In Denver said...

Absolutely Carrot.

PittHockey said...

although the solid silver hockey stick is pretty badass

norojo said...

get the fuck off the ice Arnott family! drop the puck

Serena and Chuck said...

I want a silver stick!

M. Vanderlasser said...

Vote Carrot/Shirt Guy '09.

PittHockey said...

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?


END THIS SHIT

YOU DONT NEED TO DRIVE AN ATV ONTO THE FUCKING ICE

Serena and Chuck said...

No wait, I want the wine and the vacation!

dying alive said...

Well, I will say that there's one thing I definitely will not miss when tPB moves. Does anyone else keep getting that "conflicting edits" page when they submit a post?

Dan T said...

Carrot all the way. I like and dislike the Staal deal. He's consisten on D it'd be great to see him pitch in more on the O. He's on top line tonight hopefully it pays off. 4 Mill a year? Could be a bust for Shero...Could be one of the best deals he makes.

What blog site are they switching to?

GO PENS!

Vinnie said...

Thanks to NHL Center Ice, I have to watch the Nashville Fox affiliate.

Shoot me.

rebecca said...

shit is taking longer than montreal and toronto game opener

dying alive said...

YOU DONT NEED TO DRIVE AN ATV ONTO THE FUCKING ICE

I guess all of the Monster Trucks in Nashville are booked solid.

[/only Nashville joke of the night]

PittHockey said...

vinnie: welcome to hell

dying alive said...

Didn't Philly get nailed by the league last year for dropping the puck late due to their Hextall ceremony? Granted I think it was more like 30 minutes late, but still...puck drops need to happen on time. It grates.

Rage said...

Thanks to NHL Center Ice I got the 'Burgh feed

woooooooooooooooooooooooooo

@D.A.-I also hate the conflicting edits/multiple posts

PittHockey said...

ugh, gamecenter isn't letting me switch to the radio audio.


ughblog

Steve In Denver said...

A. During the Arnott tribute, IN NASHVILLE, they ISO the chick in the Pens shirt. Woo.

B. Staal is still sprouting new pubes, he's 20, 6'13", and will be a force for a long time. His value will be huge. That was a bargain.

PittHockey said...

YES! lange time

Dr. Turkleton said...

can't wait to hear the Honky Tonk crowd yelling...

Fleur reyyyy, Fleur reyyyy, Fleur reyyyy.....YOU SUCK!

how's bout a [not gonna say it] to keep 'em quiet?

Owen Hart said...

Vinnie- this is beyond awful.

PittHockey said...

6'13" hahhaa nice

M. Vanderlasser said...

Barry Trotz is a Druid!

dying alive said...

Nashville has gone five games without a win! Ha ha! What a bunch of losers they are....oh wait.

Matt2 said...

Alright #11 time to earn your keep!!

Serena and Chuck said...

There are 4 Staals. Thanks Nashville. Really?

ACO35 said...

anyone else worried with frazer officating?

mikey said...

swayze game day is nice.

his hands look like magic.

rebecca said...

My TV is fucking up, so I have to watch Nashville feed. Dear god,
what boring play-by-play guys.

Nulpher said...

4 Staals? Are they brothers?

*Grabs 5th of Jack*

Matt said...

But are the 4 Staals brothers?

Matt2 said...

5-0 shots already? ugh

Matt said...

Damn, I'm too slow...

Dustin Jeffrey sounds like a character Patrick Swayze would have played.

PittHockey said...

wow... what a car commercial.

norojo said...

Can anyone tell me how many Staals there are?

rebecca said...

booze it and LOSE IT

ACO35 said...

atl feed=worthless

rather listen to the game and watch a carrot grow

Matt said...

DAN WHITNEY IS PUMPED. WOOOOOOOO!

PittHockey said...

if rendell did a commercial like that, he'd probably be drunk while filming.

PittHockey said...

Chris said...

I think Ryan Whitney's dad might be Dennis Hopper.

dying alive said...

Whoa, Whitney's dad's got the Baaahston accent going.

rebecca said...

I think my FAVORITE part of this feed is how it just says FIRST PERIOD and not how much time is left...

Vinnie said...

1/08/2009 8:16 PM
Blogger Owen Hart said...

Vinnie- this is beyond awful.


At least their accents are subdued.

Although every hockey-related term or name sounds utterly alien coming out of their mouths.

rebecca said...

Or it did. ;)

quiteprolific said...

i love how the preds had a three on one and all they could muster was and "here come the predators..."

ACO35 said...

Flower Power

Pens_Fan_77 said...

Steigerwald is a freaking idiot for that opening segment for the game tonight.
He should be fired for doing that stupid shit.

rebecca said...

"There was a flurrie! infront of Fleury"

sweet jesus

PittHockey said...

"and there was a flurry, in front of fleury!"

oh nashville announcers, so clever.

quiteprolific said...

ohh-ffense?

Matt said...

8-0 Nashville in shots... Holy carrot that's bad.

ACO35 said...

half a period without a shot thats awful

Serena and Chuck said...

Vinnie, did you hear them saying Therrien. I was like who?

dying alive said...

Actually, if you hadn't pointed out that the Preds announcers said the flurry thing I would have thought Errey said it.

Don't get me wrong, I love the guy, but this is the man who said the other night that "Crabb clawed his way into the zone" or something equally ridiculous.

PittHockey said...

"santorelli playing the role of arnott on the left board"


brb, going to kill myself.

Matt said...

Trade Satan for a handle of vodka and some pre-ripped Ovechkin jeans. I'm barely being sarcastic.

ACO35 said...

@ matt where you getting the shot count at?

vasponger said...

Apparently pens should have a good OOOHHfense. Ah geeze whats this announcer goin on aboot.

PittHockey said...

if I had the choice between a loss or having to listen to this announcing crew, I'd have to think for a few minutes.

PittHockey said...

nascar night.

DEAR GOD

rebecca said...

Nascar night - classy.

Matt said...

Steiggy threw that number out there before the Preds' PP.

Also, finally a shot. Time to take a shot!

rebecca said...

@PittHockey
EVERY DAMN TIME

quiteprolific said...

nascar night. awesome.

ACO35 said...

makes us just know how lucky we are having mike lange on the radio

jovi said...

is anyone else watchin the national championship?

talk about bad planning -- 2 games, same time.

ACO35 said...

thats mr. Bettman for ya

Vinnie said...

Serena and Chuck said...

Vinnie, did you hear them saying Therrien. I was like who?


yeah. It's a not-so-subtle way for the commentators to favor the home team. "If we mangle the names of the opposition they become worthless" or something.

Plus, the secondary commentator has a speech impediment. I think it's slightly endearing. He comes across as a guy who won a contest to call the Preds' games.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Wild 1, Flyers 1, end of 2nd.

quiteprolific said...

@vinnie

I agree...its almost a slur, but not quite. Adds a touch of the area I think.

Stilly said...

It's NASCAR night because of Sound & Speed. It's a big NASCAR event in Nashville this weekend.

PittHockey said...

1 shot.




in honor of that, I'll take 2 shots.

rebecca said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Matt said...

Sykora for Uber-president!

PittHockey said...

wooooooooooooo

mikey said...

petr is on fire!

dying alive said...

You're doing it, Petr!

vasponger said...

I think i saw rick flair after that goal. WHOOOOOOO

LEGAME58 said...

wooooooo

it's all about quality... not quantity kids...

don't poke the chinchilla said...

SQUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKK!!!

PittHockey said...

damn, sykora and crosby both lead the team with 16 goals.


malkin needs to start lighting it up.

ACO35 said...

your petr's on fire

Matt said...

Puck Daddy: "Take away those primary assists for Crosby, and he's deadwood. (Rest unintelligible, possibly Ovechkin's knob in mouth)"

Matt Gajtka said...

17 buries it!

What a play, what a shot.

norojo said...

its just not the same without hearing steigy say "Petr Gunn!"

quiteprolific said...

I cannot think of Sykora without thinking of steve the pirate saying "Peterrrrrr" at the end of dodgeball

PittHockey said...

ok, that was a good commercial.

Matt2 said...

WOOOOOO it doesn't matter how many shots on goal, it matters how many go in (obvious statement I know)

PittHockey said...

100% of the shots you don't take don't go in.

ACO35 said...

i think that contract lit a fire under staal. he's actually trying

rebecca said...

I'm sorry. But I can't stand the Preadtors' jersey.


Indiana Jones music...?

vasponger said...

Chris Hansen is in attendance after hearing there were some predators still trying to score.

Matt said...

Sykora caught a predator (napping, that is)

quiteprolific said...

gotta admit i did chuckle at that

PittHockey said...

rebecca: don't make them go get the solid mustard jerseys

Daniel said...

If there's one thing you can't take away from the Predators, it's the fact that their jersey numbers are ridiculously huge.

LEGAME58 said...

The Nashville announcing tandem is absolutely atrocious.. good lord..

PittHockey said...

did they just confuse gravity with momentum?

Serena and Chuck said...

I've never seen a man adjust himself as much as Sykora does.

OvechkinLaichsSemin said...

I AM OF THE OPINION THAT THIS A PENGUINS GAME :WTC:

sven butenschon said...

getting the gun

Matt said...

Atlanta Toiletbirds beating the Devils 3-0 after 2 periods, FYI.

sven butenschon said...

temple or under the chin?
or could we get someone from cblog to go to Nashville and kill them both

Vinnie said...

THANKS, TRUCK!

sven butenschon said...

For the love of carrot these a holes won't

ACO35 said...

nice footage of the fluery draft

vasponger said...

think Don Cherry picked out that dudes tie.

rebecca said...

Nashville is doing bio on every Pens player when they get the puck, they don't talk much of their own...

mikey said...

Bad English "When I See You Smile" in that Aspen Dental commercial, what the hell was that...

sven butenschon said...

@ Pitthockey

60% of the time it works everytime

Why can't the pens have nascar night?????
I fell ripped off
This totally sucks carrot

PittHockey said...

saw a bunch of lemieux jerseys in that shot, awesome

Matt Gajtka said...

Whenever you watch an opposing team's broadcast, you realize how much Crosby is respected/feared around the league, despite what you hear from ignorant bloggers, writers, etc.

I swear they've talked about Sid more than all the Preds combined. Makes you appreciate what we have.

PittHockey said...

"plain english, not computer mumbo jumbo"

oh, you mean technical terms?

pops said...

not a very good period but cant complain with the lead. sykora is a beast, i still dont know how he released that so quick...

gotta resign gunnar stahl

ACO35 said...

nice video on side

PittHockey said...

"we're gonna have highlights from the first inter--- first period of action"

HALP!

PittHockey said...

that commercial just made me remember the game Body Harvest.

Daniel said...

We signed Staal, but doesn't that mean he's easier to trade now? Think about it, if teams know exactly what it'll cost to get him, it's easier for teams who want him to know whether or not they can get him.

Nulpher said...

Must be "Dress like a seat" theme night.

rebecca said...

@Nulpher
maybe they thought the game was over after one period ;)

ACO35 said...

wow anyone else see the shots thro 1

kstewy16 said...

The only thing worse than Petr Gunn was "Have gun will travel."

Barf.

The Goon Blogger said...

Stahl's too predictable and a hot dog, he always goes glove side.

You gotta sign Bellafonte off of Trinidad and Tobego. Dude could take it coast to coast against the eventual Champs of the Good Will games when all he had around him were jokes.

Back to real life:

Good second half by the Pens, first half was all mud and being stuck in the zone. How does Sykora continue to always be exactly where you want him? Petr Fever baby, Petr Fever.

PittHockey said...

Dan: not really easier to trade, but rather it increases his value.

akus said...

I am sure they are talking alot about Sid & the Pens, cause they have not played in Nashville since 06.


Sometimes i wonder......nah, let me hold that thought until, AFTER the game.



NHLN?

Pens game > Voices. ( that is what is on my NHLN)

~~
Yes, Daniel.
( see previous post)


~~

Dark & Ruthless.

pops said...

the preds are having a "nascar night" event for their next game...

awesome

ACO35 said...

how many papa johns can you show in a row?

dying alive said...

Those Baierl commercials are my new least favorite. That woman's voice makes me want to do violence. Talking in a weird, breathy voice does not disguise the fact that she has a total yinzer accent.

Lang(e) said...

@daniel

thats the first thing i thought when i heard he signed.

The Goon Blogger said...

@dying alive

I love those ads too, but not because of the woman, because of the bitching Ska playing!

Hup hup! Pick it up!

ACO35 said...

out shotting, out chancing, out playing. sound fimiliar

PittHockey said...

survivor?

dying alive said...

Steiggy: "The second half of the first half."

rebecca said...

EEEVERRYBODY HAVE FUN TONIGHT
Papa John's commercial is new Save by Zero.

ACO35 said...

@ pitthockey well we do out wit the annoucers

vasponger said...

"The big green wall" wow Boston Fans are stunned

PittHockey said...

haha, zing

rebecca said...

I gotta agree with dying alive here, though. The Baierl commercial drives me crazy. The lady's voice. uuugh

PittHockey said...

GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAL

rebecca said...

WOO

PittHockey said...

TK!

Serena and Chuck said...

Own net goals FTW!

PittHockey said...

wow, pulling the goalie after 2?

dying alive said...

Wow, own goal. Ouch.

PittHockey said...

poor guy

LEGAME58 said...

Backstrom Moment? hmmm..

NEXT!!

akus said...

How about them appl.....errr carrots!!

vasponger said...

wow who says you gotta shoot to score : )

smitty said...

Vern Fiddler playing for Nashville !

PittHockey said...

wooooooo

rebecca said...

OMG
WOOOO
fuck yes

PittHockey said...

open the floodgates

johnnylaw said...

Wow, something like that just happened to me in my last game, luckily it didn't cost us the game.

sven butenschon said...

ohh my carrot

PittHockey said...

staal got the 2nd

Serena and Chuck said...

LOLz you guys!


Woooooooooooo!!

LEGAME58 said...

HERE WE GO!!!! woooooooooooo

ACO35 said...

Staal knows how to score?

Daniel said...

Talbot is now "off the schnide"

ACO35 said...

wow!!!

btumpak said...

woooo!!! pig slop...

ill take it.

M. Vanderlasser said...

$4 million/goal = worth it.

Superstar!!!

Wow, Max OWNS that corner of the net!

[Game 5]

dying alive said...

Can we chip in and get the dads on every road trip?

PittHockey said...

I dont care how ugly the goal is, I'll take it.

Rage said...

SWEET BABY CARROT


WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

rebecca said...

Carrots.

Nulpher said...

I would be worried about being up by 3 during the 2nd period, but MAS doesn't apply since we are not in Mellon.

sven butenschon said...

what's with the fucking whistles?
did i miss something

dying alive said...

Stoosh posted this after the Wings game earlier this season, but I'm pretty sure it applies now as well:

Pens

M. Vanderlasser said...

@dying alive, Mrs. VdL JUST said the same thing!

Matt said...

Wow, I leave for a minute to go to the bathroom, and I come back to 3-0. And a monster steal by Crosby. What a hockey player.

btumpak said...

seriously it must have been "children's toy whistle night" there

Serena and Chuck said...

Sven, the whistles are for Tootoo. Toootoooooo...

Matt Gajtka said...

All of a sudden, we're getting all the breaks. Gotta love it.
