(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 [...]
When the horn sounded at the end of last nights game, it marked the end of the first half of the season for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins themselves have less than twenty four hours from the end of the first half last night ’til the start of the second half tonight in Montreal.
Most of their time will be spent traveling up to [...]
Sorry you haven’t heard from any of us over the weekend. We said we were going to party like rock stars and here is a photo blog of the proof. We made promises to certain people not to show all of the pictures, but here is what we were allowed to:

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.

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 [...]
As the holidays approach, it’s always nice to be reminded that the boys we watch throw big hits and sometimes pummel other players also have big hearts. And, that the team who is throwing advertisements and sponsorships at us right and left, does some good too.
In August, Max Talbot and Mike Rupp visited devastated areas of Haiti with team C [...]
Pens’ fans breathed a collective sigh of relief yesterday compliments of this blog post by Seth Rorabaugh:
An apology – 11-08-10

Last week, I posted an entry on thepensblog.com that gave the false impression that Post-Gazette management was considering eliminating the Em [...]
In case you haven’t heard by now, a Pens fan favorite is in trouble. Late Thursday night, Seth Rorabaugh made the announcement via Twitter that the future of his Empty Netters blog is in jeopardy. While he did not reveal the reason, he did say that he has a meeting with some of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette management on Monday about the futu [...]

Phil Krundle, Reg Dunlop, Champ Kind, and their b [...]
