Time Over Time

Sundays should be easy.  Could someone please inform my hockey teams? Penguins 2, Flyers 1 – OT The past two seasons, the Flyers have ended big win streaks for the Pens.  Not last night!!  It took a while, until Crosby PPGed so hard he almost fell over.  He is a little back-heavy, after all. .gif by […]

Skates, Plates & Prom Dates

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 […]

Honk for Hat Tricks!

Ohhhh, HAT trick. I thought you said PANT trick.  That’s how my jeans ended up on the ice.  Could I have them back? Nealmobile had a hat trick last night!  It was the second of his career and first with the Penguins, for a whopping 37 goals on the season. Goal #1: Stand There, Look […]

Puppy Love

Just surrender.  You are no match for the Penguins annual calendar shoot.  It’s not like we put up much of a fight, but breaking out the puppies is like dropping a birthday cake through the sunroof of our glittery private jet.  Get on board, we have treats!  I am dying from all the adorbs [video link]. […]

Dumb & Dumber (& Dumber)

Tyler Kennedy tweeted this picture of himself & JStaal as Harry and Lloyd from Dumber & Dumber. They’re a little late to the party – Toews & Burish rocked this one in ’09.  But I have to say that the Pens boys upped the ante – hats + JStaal’s wig = infinitely more frightening committed. […]

Do Not Like

Kris Letang will face a hearing with the NHL Dept of Player Safety today regarding his hit on Alex Burmistrov in the third period of last night’s game against Winnipeg [link].  He received a minor penalty for boarding on the play.  If suspended, it would likely begin (and hopefully end) with tonight’s game in Minnesota. I […]


Pens re-sign Kennedy for 2 years! [NHL.com]  Right now I just wanna… and maybe… for about $2 million dollars. Tyler Kennedy Appreciation Life continues.

Penguins, Take a Bow

I woke up this morning to find that yesterday did indeed happen.  The worst 24 hours of my sports life have left me pretty devastated, but my coworker and fellow hockey fan Gator left this on my desk: Fortified on sugar and sympathy, I feel strong enough to write something. It’s been quite a year […]

TK Tuesday!

I can’t make an alliterative joke about Tuesday without wanting tacos! The Pens won 3-2 last night on a sweet baby barbecue sauce goal from Tyler Kennedy. [video] If you’ve never watched a Pens game with me, TK gets some of the loudest cheering.  He is my Who from Whoville, wha-hoo-na. LePretty had 2 assists […]

Appreciation Post: TK48

If one more sportscaster talks about Crosby and Malkin being out like they just decoded the news with their Enigma machine, I’m going to throw a shoe at my TV.  WE KNOW.  What you should be talking about is how freaking clutch some of our guys are coming up these days.  Guys like Tyler Kennedy. […]
