We still haven't figured out how to run our lives when they have to go on for more than a day or two without hockey.
Here are some things you may want to hear about:
TORONTO ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING!!
It was a battle of Jonases as winless-but-sexy Vesa Toskala sat the game out.
GOALTENDING CONTROVERSY AHOY
We, perhaps better than many Pens fans, have an insight into the deeper difficulties of being a Leafs fan, and we're happy to see Toronto notch its first win of the season.
But we are no less amused by pictures like this one from a Leafs game in Vancouver.
Frustrated (probably alcoholic) Leafs fan putting an UpsetFan bag over his head surrounded by some of the best expressions we've ever seen in the stands.
Top right guy just jizzed his pants.
White hat dude probably hasn't even realized he's at a Canucks game.
Seriously, what a moment.
Also, some website that is in love with us tried to get quotes from Bryz about his hot, hot start, and received the following quotation:
"The whole team is battling hard in front of me, and it makes my job much easier," he told azcentral.com. "Relaxed? Maybe it's just the beginning of the season, you know, my mind is fresh . . . maybe I don't know what I want."
We never said Ilya was a man who knew what he wanted, but his forwardness with the media on this issue is quite endearing.
Speaking of Bryz, the NHL is still publishing short, 1984-like articles about the fate of the Coyotes franchise. They still want to stay in Phoenix. Woo?
And yeah, you know about the clutch pics of Godard and Fleury dressed up at practice if you've been following the Pens Twitter page.
Also, you can watch the video that finally came out of Eric fingerpainting with children, getting his ass kicked at air hockey, and talking about his coloring skillz. It's really very dangerous so click at your own goddamned risk.
Just thought we'd share.
