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 […]

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.

First of all, I’m aware that I haven’t posted in forever and if anyone is still paying attention, I apologize.  But “ennui” has been my middle name of late.  Or maybe “uninspired? uninterested? unengaged?”  And besides, the media says that nobody blogs or reads blogs anymore. But in the off chance that I do post […]

Winter has for once arrived on time to the benighted lands of Western PA, and I could not be happier.  Here’s a random, content-free toast to winter. Because I love the Ice. Because I love the Snow. And because, if you’re a fan of the Song of Ice & Fire novels like I am, you […]
