Sweetie, your prom date is here.
You’re dad’s thinking, “Whew. My daughter’s safe with this dork.”
Sorry to be late – the Penguins annual Skates & Plates benefit was a few days ago. You know, the one where they get dressed up and
try not to drop food on themselves, people, the floor give us something to blog about.
While I’m generally opposed to jackets with tails (on anyone but Mr. Peanut)…
I can’t resist an event in which the Penguins make Matt Niskanen look like the Mayor of the Munchkin City.
Is ‘corsage pinner’ a job? Related experience: I can make a poof in the front of my hair with one bobby pin. Here’s my resume.
Kris: Are you nervous?
Sid: I hope they spaced the tables out far enough for me to fit through.
Kris: Well you look good.
Sid: Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh (tugs at collar).
Next year I think Skates & Plates should have lanes of ice between the tables, so the players can deliver your food like a 1950’s diner – on skates. They could add paper hats and a choreographed dance routine. So basically the dinner would be at Johnny Rockets and sound like Grease. They could pull it off.

When the Penguins aren’t working for tips, they sometimes play hockey. The first period last night vs. Philly was not one of those times…
Unless you think this is hockey:
Yes, you. You jerk.
I do support this, of course. Peeking between my hands yelling, “No no no no!” and then “KILL HIM! ROAR!!!”
Good thing I kept an eye on the out-of-town scoreboard. People at the Caps game gave me stare down for freaking out as these three goals popped up.
My phone could hardly refresh fast enough. Wore the lady behind me right out.
And when I saw that Neal scored in a somewhat redeeming fashion? I attacked @raedanda, in her puple pants. Duck and cover.
I haven’t even watched the game yet, but this is my joy.
Sorry, Sad Ginger. (NO I’M NOT.)
While I’m at it, CHRIS KUNITZ! Having a year! 2G/1A last night, he now has 31 points and is behind only Crosby and Stamkos for the NHL lead. [CBS Sports] He even tried to save Disco Dan from a flying puck Monday night.
The Pens also got a goal and an assist from Dupuis. If Sid’s linemates scored 3 times, you know he had 3 assists last night. From the Pittsburgh Tribune:
Since the beginning of February, Crosby has produced 29 points in 16 games. He has at least one point in 13 of those games. Crosby has recorded seven three-point nights during that span.
Crosby’s career vs. Philly? 13 goals and 20 assists in 21 games.
