Best $10 I Ever Spent

It is time!!  Better than Christmas morning.  Call up your cable provider (I just did) and add HBO for $10/month so you can watch Penguins/Capitals Road to the Winter Classic on 24/7, starting tonight.  Yesterday, HBO promised us so much vulgarity that you should “hide your kids.”  If I had kids, they’d say, “F&$% that, […]

Showcase Showdown

Sid, Ovi and Jeremy Roenick will make a guest appearance on The Price is Right on Monday, December 20.  I saw this as a Tweet last night and thought I must be hallucinating.  Apparently not.

Winter Classic Wake-Up Call

The Penguins unveiled their Winter Classic jerseys today.  If you live out West, the game is on at 10 AM.  That’s technically still New Year’s Eve in my book, but frankly what a way to ring it in!  Crosby, Staal, Letang, Talbot, Flower (hopefully) and throw in some Mike Green… I can wake up for […]

Countdown: 9 Days

I am so cranky!  First I couldn’t wait for pre-season and now I’m already tired of it.  Split-squad games, pretending I care who is reassigned… boring.  The sound of skates on ice is lovely, but I’m ready for stuff to count.  In anticipation of that, today’s news items are things I think will actually matter […]
