Sid Needs a Winger

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

I haven’t even been following hockey since Sid’s been out.  Only linking to this story as an excuse to run this picture again. In James Neal, has Ray Shero found his winger for Sidney Crosby? So has Ray Shero finally found a guy that can be consistently productive next to Sidney Crosby? Neal’s posted 20-plus […]

“This is old-time hockey.”

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Well you know what?  FUCK old-time hockey. 361 fighting penalty minutes. In a 60-minute game. So, anybody out there still want to argue about the noble, time-honored tradition of hockey fights?  How they are an integral part of the game?  How they are a legitimate strategem?  How they are needed for morale?  Watch the three […]

C’est la Guerre

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

Ahh well.  Sorry after all that hype to my friends that Sidney Crosby didn’t show up to play on Saturday night.  Also sorry that the NHL chose to endanger their players in the shitty weather/ice conditions just so that they could get on primetime (and also not interfere with Sunday’s precious football schedule).  *eye roll*  […]

A Penguins Primer for Girls, Pt.2

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

To conclude this piece, I just want to say a little bit about the opposition.  Know they enemy, and all that. The Winter Classic game will be played against the Washington Capitals.  They may not be Satan himself, but they are surely his henchmen.  The hatred between the Penguins and the Capitals is bitter and […]

A Penguins Primer for Girls

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

I’ve talked two out-of-state friends into virtually watching the Winter Classic with me.  They are both newbies to hockey/the Pens, so I wrote this as a little viewing guide for them.  But, since I took SO much effort to compose this piece, why not add it to the blog? Heh.  I know most everyone reading […]

Better than eggnog.

Friday, December 24th, 2010

Or a cell phone, iPod, Wii, perfume, socks, a sweater, or any other gift you may receive this holiday,  (though not as good as Gingerbread)  I am placing some screencaps from the HBO 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic show under your virtual trees today.  Yes, big enough to be used as wallpaper. For […]

So it begins

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

again… Hockey season is officially upon us!  I wish I could be excited, but so far all I feel is a big “meh.” Hence, the Crosby Goodness above…an effort to psych myself out. A few of my favorites have left the team.  The guys who remain (Sid and JStaal excepted, naturlich!) are guys who…frankly…I never […]

It’s Bday J!

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Happy, happy birthday to mah Baby JStaal!  Sorry to hear that you’re still laid up with your foot injury and might be missing practice, but you know what… JStaal don’t need no steenkin’ practice! On Oct. 7 you shall slay them like sheep as usual.  Here’s to you, BabyJ, from me and SSkars.

Live from Toronto!“True patriot love in all thy sons command!”

Dear NHL, you suck.

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Our boys were basically shut-out at the NHL awards last night!  Sidney was up for umpteen awards, only won 1!  JStaal should have owned the Selke trophy, but lost to freakin’ Datsyuk from the Red Wings! Whatever, NHL.  You’ve just made yourself look as stupid and irrelevant as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and […]

Seriously, y’all?

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Really?  You Pens are making me have to bust out Coach Taylor on your asses THIS early in the playoffs?  Against Montreal?!  That is just wrong.  You can do better than that.  The unbridled power of Coach Taylor should be held in reserve for the most dire of situations…maybe the finals…maybe against somebody like Washington…. […]

Quicker than a battle-axe to the back of the head

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

Holy Odin almighty, Jordan Staal is back on the ice tonight!!! The Secret of Steel…JStaal knows it! AARRRRR!

I have been and ever shall be your fangirl.

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Remember Staal Wars?  Rev up Photoshop because here’s what I propose for the 2010 playoffs:

Ubi Sunt

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

As the Pens must face another game without our fallen warrior JStaal, I thought this would be a very apt time to continue the program we began last playoffs, Learn Old English Poetry with Jordan Staal. Today’s very topical lesson will be the Ubi Sunt theme as it occurs in Anglo-Saxon verse. “Ubi Sunt”  (literally […]

Breaking News: Some PGH sports fans aren’t retards!

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

This is the single best article ever written about Pittsburgh sports in the history of Pittsburgh and sports. Pittsburgh fans turn to Crosby Yes, this will always be Steelers country, first and foremost. But recent events – both good and bad – have run together like the three rivers themselves, and suddenly hockey is gaining […]

The mighty have fallen

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

OH NO. So the Pens thrash Montreal last night, but who cares?  The victory is pyrrhic, because Baby JStaal was wounded in the battle. I cannot believe it!  Who would dare to lift a finger to JStaal?! This cannot go unavenged!  In other words Please everyone reading this light a candle for mah BabyJ.  I’d […]

I can haz fierce?

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

And so it begins.  Good luck, Sidney.

Interview With The Viking

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Wow, this is great stuff.   Empty Netters interviewed JSTAAL for their ongoing “Mellon Arena Memories” series.  Besides the interview, there are tons of videos of BabyJ’s great moments.  Badassery in action…relive it now! Oh, the ultimate quote from Jordan: “I pretty much just blacked out and got lucky.” *giggle* That’s mah baby boy!  I’m changing […]

Weekend Wrapup

Monday, April 5th, 2010

See more pics here. April 2 was my mom’s birthday and after finally exhausting all ideas of objects to get her, I had the bright idea (ok, actually it was Whistler’s idea) to take her to a Pens game because there was a nice 1pm game scheduled the day after her birthday.   I spent what […]

Damage Inc.

I know it’s hard, but let’s try to get just a little bit psyched up for tonight’s hockey game, huh? Bring it.
