And the Worst Hockey Blogger Award Goes To...


I am so horrible at updating, but at least I have honest excuses. For the past week I've been battling the worst cold I've had in a long time. Bleh.

Thank goodness it's in the final stages ... and you know which stage I'm talking about. If you don't just ask Roberto Luongo...


Penguins Headlines:

  • The Pens had a little vacation time after Saturday's 5-0 win against the Thrashers. The next game will be Friday @ 7:30 against the Dallas Stars.

  • The Penguins held the Make-A-Wish Lunch/Practice on Tuesday.

  • Someone needs to buy Kris Letang some HeadOn for Christmas.

"Apply directly to the forehead!"
  • Jordan Staal knows about his sod.
  • I watched the brief interview with Ryan Malone on FSN's Sportsbeat tonight. First off I am glad that I'm not suffering alone... Stan Savran looks like he's getting a pretty bad cold. Second, young Ryan Malone was "banging on pots and pans" to celebrate the Pens Stanley Cup win. Oh, the early 90's. To think I celebrated by being born...
  • Two "In My Own Words" episodes will be premiering on FSN this December 5th and 6th. They will be featuring Jack Riley and Eddie Johnston.

Steelhounds Headlines

  • This weekend was the first Home Games for the Hounds (unfortunately I was coughing my lungs out and couldn't attend). Friday's game was a 4-3 win against the Mudbugs and Saturday's came to be a 4-2 loss.
  • Forward Erik Johnson has been traded to the New Mexico Scorpions.
  • The Steelhounds welcome back Czech Republic native Petr Pohl who was recently playing for Syracuse (AHL).

Bah Bah Bah. Good times never seemed so... bad.

Lost 2-4 Against the Rangers last night.

Penguins Highlights:

1st Period...

  • Fluery took the net, Whitney still out with his groin, and Colby is back in the line-up.

  • The hotdog advertisement under the visitors bench was a nice touch.

  • Gomez scored the first point of the game for the Rangers.

  • Michel Therrien gives Sean Avery a death stare... for some reason I found it attractive. Oh no!

  • Gonchar scored the first goal of the game for the Pens.

  • Michal Rozisval scored 2nd goal for Rangers.

2nd Period...

  • I heard Bon Jovi in the background. That is SO not a good way to start the period...

  • Sean "big mouth and a few more selective words" Avery gets a goal.

3rd Period...

  • Bob Errey caught Jagr talking to his stick for awhile. *wheezy laughs*
  • Hey, I guess it does help him.
  • Mary-O is at the game... looking nice! Wink Wink
  • Bradon Dubinsky scored.
  • Marc Recchi scored on the poweplay... he really reminds me of Mel Gibson.

Well, another loss.
