That’s directed at the fans of the other 14 teams left in the playoffs because you will get NO sympathy from Pens fans. NONE. ZERO. NADA. All I keep seeing is fans crying about how one or two of their good players got hurt and will miss a game or two (especially by a *gasp* unpenalized hit) or how one of their players got screwed wi [...]
Sometimes, a story comes along that just writes itself and compels you to follow it.
I was sitting around Sunday afternoon thinking about what inconsistency in the NHL to rant about in my next “Bombs Away” when I saw this come across my Twitter feed:
@MandisHeroes: We regret to inform everyone that Mandi Schwartz passed away at 1 [...]
Just over two weeks ago, Mike Murphy handed down one of the biggest joke decisions in supplementary discipline when he decided that the Bruins’ Zdeno Chara should receive no fine or suspension for his hit the night before on the Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty. I bring this up again for several reasons.
First, the Habs and Bruins mee [...]
The Pens and Caps is more than a rivalry, it has become a story of unrequited love. Or obsession. If we have learned nothing else about the Caps this season, especially through the eyes of 24/7, it’s that they have this non-stop focus on the Pens.
During the HBO series, we saw constant references by Caps’ coach Boudreau to the P [...]
I told you we had big news, a PenguinPoop exclusive! What seemed like a few select players not participating in the All Star Game is turning into a massive effort to stand behind Crosby’s protest of the league’s weak stand on hits to the head by skipping out on this extremely important league event. Top secret, unnamed sources, [...]
The Canadian “mainstream media” knows all, it case you didn’t know. Krundle thought he was an expert on concussions. Little does he know that he was beat to that title weeks ago. As soon it was announced that Crosby had a concussion following the hit by Victor Hedman in the game against Tampa Bay, that theory was immediat [...]
(Note: It happens to be a coincidence that “Bombs Away” is appearing for the first time with a post about a meltdown. We’re trying to come up for a title for my mini-rants (kind of funny since I have a hard time writing anything very brief) and that was Krundle’s suggestion as a play on my name. I’m open to id [...]
Today is Christmas for those of the Eastern Orthodox churches, the Russians in particular stick close to this tradition. Well, obviously I’m not considering last night’s loss a Christmas gift to Geno. I’m talking about the bigger event that took place this week. For those of you who don’t follow the World Junior Cha [...]
I have to get this out there before tonight’s home game…
This could possibly be the most important post I make all season. If you’ve been to a game since the second half of last season, you will probably understand why.
The “WOO” has become the most annoying thing to overtake Pens games. Even more annoying than the wave. It sta [...]
On Thursday, November 18th, Art Vandelay and I had a chance to see some Pens in a little off-ice action. Fidelity Bank welcomed Brooks Orpik and Tyler Kennedy to their newest location at new McCandless Crossing development off of McKnight Road in the North Hills.
For the first hour, Orpik and Kennedy mingled with a smaller group of fans in a [...]
