Pens V. Habs

Tomorrow is the day we welcome a certain pimp back into our presence for the first time since the days of old. The raging nostalgia comes creeping up when we least expect it.
Oh Hal, how we miss you and wish we didn't have to pray to Curry to cast down plagues and death upon your team. We wish your current jersey was one we could wear proudly. We wish...
Well, we fucking wish a lot of things.
It doesn't change the fact that we are Stanley Cup Champions. And yes, while Hal's name is on the Cup, he does not have the privilege of defending it. Such is life.

Currently we are first in the standings and the Habs are 17th. This early on in the game those standings are on shaky ground. No one knows what will come of this season; we haven't even gotten a chance to hear someone use the "It's only November" excuse. If we win this game, we further cement our place at the top for the time being. We lose, the Avs, Rags and Caps start creeping up on us. And while we don't really give a shit what the Avs are doing league-wide at this point (although their backup goalie Budaj does have swine flu which is both hilarious and awful all at once), we would prefer to keep the Rags at arms length and the Caps a few nations over.

Speaking of the Caps...
Could the NHL get more disgustingly obvious in their attempts to let us know this is a GOOD GUY BAD GUY situation? We are so sick of seeing Crosby played against Ovie like Crosby's the high school nerd with good intentions and Ovie is the dangerous bad boy in the leather jacket. This advertisement just reminded us all of the things we had forgotten since the Caps series. We hate that the public apparently can't be trusted to come up with their own plots. We have to be force fed this good boy v. bad boy story.
Lord are we not looking forward to the next Caps game.

That's really all that there is today.
Not every day can be HUGE EXCITING NEWS like Eric Godard painting with small children.
Lord, don't we wish...

Go Pens.

That picture of Gill is hilarious, thank you.

I'm surprised the NHL hasn't just had Crosby and Ovechkin pose in white and black cowboy hats, respectively. The only good thing about that rivalry is it's an actual rivalry, not something fan-generated--it's pretty obvious those guys have genuinely disliked each other for years and don't intend to stop. It's always a letdown when you find out that rivals don't hate each other near as bad as their fans do.

Are you suggesting that Crosby isn't the high school nerd with good intentions? I mean, he doesn't do all that much to contradict that persona. I think it's kinda adorable.

But yes, it's always obnoxious to have shit like that shoved down your throat. At least it's an actual rivalry, as CrackerLilo pointed out.

No dissing Doofy! He's adorable because he's so dorky. Ovechkin, on the other hand. . .yuckyuckyuck GAG. That's all I have to say for that.

And welcome back Harold Priestley Gill III. What a sweetie and a badass - simultaneously.

That is probably THE greatest picture of Skillzy known to the Interwebz.

I stopped by the Igloo after the game day skate this morning and Hal Gill graciously made an appearance for the few of us fans who were there.

He was all smiles and talked with everyone, and even chatted with the parking lot employees. He is indeed a doll.

We love you Hal Gill.

Not that I think you are incompetent bitches, but why haven't you posted anything about the death of Letang's Sex Hair? I mean, I can't be the only one that was near tears when I found out.

Candy Man Fan said...

@kate + tavin - I was near tears...of happiness. he looked homeless. his hair was almost longer than mine. now that magical beauty can shine through without being hidden behind 58 lbs of hair

utterfrivolity said...

I was horrified when I heard about the hair cut, but then I saw the pictures...yeah, not a problem. I really think he's even hotter with shorter hair. I wouldn't have thought it possible.

Bitches love Letang's new hair cut. And if they don't: FUCKING SKANKS.

Need Ice In Phoenix said...

They put Max on camera. He was short-haired, clean-shaven and wearing a suit almost as hot as his smile.

I'm all sweaty now.

Ashferddd said...

@JStll - money in the bank, bitch! We loveeeeeeeee KTang's new haircut!

Damn I wish I was drunk. Bob Errey almost killed me again.

wispensfan said...

Glad to see I am not in the minority about the new hair cut.I always wondered what he would look like with short hair and I wasn't disappointed. It was the same thing when Max got his hair cut finally.
@Phoenix needs ice
I'm right there with you on being all sweaty after seeing Max. Didn't think he could could be any hotter but he proved me wrong yet again.

JSt11 said...

Bob Errey was in rare fucking form. Hannibal Lecter impersonation? Jesus. And of course in not-so-rare form, there was the talking about Sid's stick. Amazing.

Lizzie said...

Okay, I'm coming back here so late that a) nobody's probably looking back at this post and b) this may have been mentioned elsewhere and I missed it... But I just got the NHL holiday catalog, and for the Hockey Fights Cancer stuff, they've reversed the roles. Sid is in the "edgy" t-shirt, and Ovechkin is in the suit. And, much as I hate the forced images... It kind of looks wrong the other way. Just can't win there, I guess.
