wooooooo?

Patrick Kane with the GWG. Datsyuk with the giveaway that leads to the GWG.
Bank on it.

Kierstan said...

Tough sports afternoon for me...Winter Classic and the Gator Bowl at the same time. Go Huskers!

KStewy16 from last post - thanks for the response. It just seemed to me like a lot of negative gossip in the same vein coming up at once. I'm not going to begrudge a kid the right to party sometimes or anything like that (hell, you're only young once), but when gossip like that starts flying around, well, one starts to wonder.

WinterClassicblog - Anyone else watching? The sound quality is crap. Is anyone else having that issue?

Hudler with a 4 minute highstick to someone's lip.

and if you hate Bob Costas like I do, watch the game on the Ceeb...

i can't believe i dragged myself out f bed for this.

puck hasn't even dropped and i'm already boredcity.

kstewy16 said...

Who's doing play by play? I heard Doc was out, but I didn't hear who was replacing him.

kstewy16 said...

Blackhawks jerseys kick ass. Wings jersey are gay with the Tigers "D" on them, but I'd buy a Hawks jersey.

pensfan871 said...

That video just made my day.
Should be a good game today.

Should also be a good game tonight.

Go Pens!

kstewy16 said...

Wow, Pierre McDouche with the awesome story on how long it takes to get from the locker room to the ice surface.

I hope someone falls down those stairs coming out of the Wings locker room.

TheNWChica said...

Dave Strader is subbing for Doc, and he's really good. Just too bad EddieO is not out too.

Kierstan said...

Dave Strader taking over for Doc. 'Cause, you know, when you think classic hockey, you think of the voice of the Coyotes. Edzo's back too.

Kierstan said...

NWChica - good to hear. I've never seen his work, so I was wondering.

TheNWChica said...

Dave actually used to do Wings PBP before he went to the Panthers then the Yotes. But yeah, I watch quite a few Yotes games; and I think he's very knowledgeable, pretty mellow and when he's doing games with Panger, they're a scream.

kstewy16 said...

Outfield seats must absolutely blow. I bet they can't see shit from out there. 1st and 3rd base line seats would be pretty cool though.

kstewy16 said...

Ice surface looks decent. Nowhere near as much snow on it as the other WC.

kstewy16 said...

Jeff Jimerson>>>Hawks opera singer

Lloyd said...

I cant recall ever hearing that much cheering during the whole national anthem...

Kierstan said...

I feel kinda bad for the guy who sang O, Canada...what an embarassing time to have your voice break. The setup out there looks awesome, though...I got chills. I hope it's a great game.

kstewy16 said...

Why exactly do they sing the Canadian national anthem when its in the US but not any of the other players anthems? I mean, where the Czech, Swiss, Russian, and Slovak anthems?

pensfan871 said...

Wow.
Both anthem singers were jokes.

kstewy16 said...

Mike Babcock's hat has set new standards for Douchebags.

J.S. said...

Strader is a solid backup. He used to do a lot of games for ESPN and I thought he was one of their better announcers.

Lloyd, Hawks games are always like that. If you thought that was loud, check out the 91(?) All Star Game on youtube. For as many times as I've seen it, I still get chills each time I see an anthem in Chicago. Wish more places were like that.

I might have to agree with Kierstan that the sound quality is crap so far.

Babcock looks like a major douche in that hat. On second though, he looks like one without the hat.

Lloyd said...

a few are chatting during the W.C.. It will be up again during the pens game as well.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

The US anthem was awesome.

The crowd is hot.

kstewy16 said...

Wow, Bobby Hull has put on a few....Hundred pounds.

pensfan871 said...

Haha, Wings get first penalty.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Tanger's back, chums:

"Defenseman Kris Letang will return for Pittsburgh's grudge match against the Bruins in Boston on Thursday at TD Banknorth Garden at 7 p.m.

Letang's return will give Pittsburgh eight healthy defensemen. Head coach Michel Therrien wouldn't say how Letang's return willl effect the lineup. Pittsburgh dressed seven defensemen on Tuesday in the first installment of the home-and-home against Boston, using rookie Alex Goligoski at both defense and forward.

Therrien said that forward Eric Godard will be a game-time decision. Goaltender Dany Sabourin will make his first start in goal for Pittsburgh since Dec. 13 at Philadelphia.

Also, Therrien named Petr Sykora and Ryan Whitney as the Penguins' alternate captains for the month of January."

Beef jerky!

Kierstan said...

Wait, if Sabu's starting, doesn't that mean that Flower won't be eligible for the ASG due to not enough games played?

sven butenschon said...

SABU
Are you fucking kidding me?
Wanttosellmyticketsblog

Please let Hossa blow out a knee today

Kstewy16
Are there any Non Gay Bars near the arena? (I know I am asking for a lot)

meg said...

Winter Classic game is sick so far! Blackhawks remind me of the Pens.. i like them a lot.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Why in the world is Sabu playing?

The Winter Classic is awesome.
A much, much better game than last year.

Kierstan said...

IMO, Whits doesn't deserve the A on his sweater yet...he hasn't earned it. I was hoping to see Dupuis get one, I thought he earned it. Sykie definitely deserved it.

sven butenschon said...

Hossa = Joke

meg said...

Should've been Dupuis instead of Whitney.. whit's been back two games or so?
And this game is so much better than last years.
Anyone else notice Conklin giving away the Fleury rebounds?

pops said...

i think alternating the As was a piss poor decision. I dunno, I just think its a joke move. im all for rewarding good play, effort, everyone being a leader, etc. but a solid, established leadership core is more valuable i think. give it to malkin/orpik/sykora/gill stick with it.

just my opinion.

MERRY NEW YEAR

Lloyd said...

Missing RBK logo:
http://www.reebokhockey.com/winter-classic/

Blackhawks RW (#33) Dustin Byfuglien

pops said...

fleury has played enough games to start in the all joke game

Heck Kleck said...

Dustin Byfuglien. 33 chicago. no rbk logo.

pops said...

what does "unique stanley cup experience" mean? does it mean watching hossa get his legs broken?

Kierstan said...

That'd be unique, alright.

debrisslide said...

Anyone think there's a lot of bullshit interference being called lately? Oh well, at least Hawks are winning. They look pretty fab compared to the Wings.

I think Franzen is missing the Reebok logo btw?

Sabu starting = awkward.

Letang back = amazing.

Maybe Whitney said something amazing at the players only meeting to deserve the A. Dupuis definitely has EARNED it, but I think the decision was good. Sykora with the A is utter preciousness.

debrisslide said...

sorry, me thinking it was Franzen was apparently a joke. Whatev.

Annie S said...

We're leaving soon for the long drive to Bahson. Want to get there early enough to see the warmups. If any cbloggers are near Balcony 326, row 7, stop by and say hi. I'll be in the '92 Lemieux jersey and baby blue striped scarf. I might even buy you a drink...

Go Pens! Woooooooooooooooooo!

Eric P. said...

Thanks for the tip on Byfuglien..

Ben Eager with a sick goal. Conklin, what a jobber

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Canadians can't enter the Reebok contest.

Boo.

Kierstan said...

Really? WTF is up with that?

meecrofilm said...

Mats Sundin doing a PokerStars commercial?

As if I needed a reason to hate Mats Sundin more.

I'm gonna take a page out of the legendary Les Grossman's book here and say, Mr. Sundin, please take one step back.....

AND LITERALLY FUCK YOUR OWN FACE.

crmzak said...

@ SVEN sorry this is late, but in response to where to eat/drink, I just get in and get out so I don't have any siggestions unfortunately. I have yet to find a Penguin/Steeler friendly bar anywhere in NE. So much so, that I was thinking of opening one up.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Hossa's an ass.

kstewy16 said...

Tropic thunder FTW.

pops said...

i really like this commercial with sid>

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK14BEeSFHM

TheNWChica said...

The only thing about that Sid commercial is that he would have been wearing a Habs sweater as a boy since that was his favorite team.

kstewy16 said...

Yeah, cool vid, but really, Sid was probably sitting there wearing his Yzerman jersey.

pops said...

yea, he'd definitely be wearing a habs jersey, but i like it nonetheless.

kstewy16 said...

He might have the Habs jersey, but he's said before Yzerman was his favorite player.

pops said...

i mean, they could've easily sat the kid down with an yzerman jersey and all, but they gave a nod to mario. id rather have that than comparisons to gretzky or someone.

pops said...

fucking red wings are winning.

its unreal that conklin might be undefeated in outdoor games

coffeytalk said...

is that a fake recchi walking ahead of sid in that video?

pops said...

yea, haha. waaaay taller than real recchi

coffeytalk said...

WEIRD.

M. Vanderlasser said...

I never realized (until about 30 seconds ago) that the kid in that commercial was supposed to be a young Steve Crosby.

Me = retarded, New Years style.

TheNWChica said...

It's okay Vander...your brain is being dulled by the droning of fucking Costas and Milbury.

M. Vanderlasser said...

Yeah, and I've had approx. 10 lbs of Sour Patch Kids in the past 48 hours...I wonder if they have some kind of brain-depleting chemicals in them?

nicholas richter said...

buries it

nicholas richter said...

"is that a fake recchi walking ahead of sid in that video?"

it would have to be... if it were actually Recchi, they would have to speed up the video to make it look like everyone is walking at a normal pace.

coffeytalk said...

balls.

pops said...

im really curious to see how the pens come out tonight after this players only meeting. i wonder if i'll finally see some fire in their eyes. wooooo

coffeytalk said...

i miss conkblock city. i miss being able to wear that t-shirt too.

meh.

PenguinsExperience.com said...

Weren't they supposed to switch sides at the 10 minute mark?

PenguinsExperience.com said...

"Take me out to the Hockey Game" is just painful.

pensfan871 said...

"Take me out to the hockey game"
I'll meet you all at the bridge...

Flyer Hater said...

Huet blows.

TheNWChica said...

Meh...oh well. See yinz in a couple of hours!

Kierstan said...

Meh. Stupid Red Wings. At least the Huskers won, WOOOOOO!!

akus said...

OK, shocked @ Sabu starting.

Suprised that Whit got an A.


But whoooooooofuckinyesss at this shit

"Practice was short but taxing and included the surprise return of right wing Tyler Kennedy "

Here

akus said...

Full drills Baby, that is nice to hear.

Raybin said...

Huet blows.

My thoughts exactly. I figured Chicago was in trouble when I saw he was starting. Just had that feeling he was going to choke.

True story: When the 5th goal went in I thought "Flyer Hater will have something to say about Huet."

CBlog: You can never escape it.

akus said...

bangs my head against the keyboards, while muttering, i must not read the Pens boards, i must not read the Pens boards, i must not read the Pens boards, i must not read the Pens boards.


Go Pens!
Go Sabu.--


A day late but i was telling my daughter about this the other day.
