  1. Game time? Gee wiz not yet, can’t wait to see the Pens play! Go Pens

  2. same time? :-)

  3. Browns over the Steelers???? Bite your tongue. I know what you mean when I spent 5 years in Columbus I had to go to a Damons to watch the games. There are a lot of Pittsburgh sports bars around as well.

    • I haven’t heard about the radio and such. Been back in PA since 2008. Always move away and end up back here. Live in CA for 10 years, east bay San Fran. They had a Poka festival every year and met hundreds on people from PA looking for updates on our teams. Steelers were the most popular of course but had lots of Pirates fans as well. Live in Florida a couple times as well. about 4 years total. Thought something was funny about that place, thought is was the cockroaches, maybe it was Drew, who knows? Illinios as well for a couple years long long ago.

  4. GO PENS !!

    • Ya, only lost 2 games out of he last 20 – its workin!! LOL
      Sure I will take credit for it, Pens had nuttin to do w/it!!

      I got an original “green weenie” in reserve, not gonna wake the ghost of the Gunner unless absolutely, positively necessary though.!!!

  5. So Malkin is out of this game because of SUNBURN???? Are you kidding me? How freaking selfish. I’m not calling his missing the game selfish its the fact that you can’t be responsible enough to know how to use sun screen.

    I seriously hope the Pens don’t miss out on the #1 seed because of a game lost to Florida tonight.

  6. Are you serious Teddy Bear???? Sunburn?????

  7. The Pens have been notorious over the years for losing focus when playing in Florida.

    Mario would tag along when he was injured to ‘support the team,’ most likely on a beach.

    Crosby is with traveling with them now. He doesn’t need to be there.

    Some things never change.

  8. Yeah. And I’m Mother Theresa!

  9. Tanger slaps one in! 1-0 Pens

  10. Yes! Morrow!

  11. Morrow banks one in! 2-0

  12. Great pressure by the Pens, even without the big guys,

  13. C’mon Dave don’t tell me you believe “upper body” injury. Go to the Post Gazette website. Says he got severe sun burn. Even Steigerwald and Errey quickly by passed the subject at the opening tonight

  14. I didn’t say that Malkin doesn’t have a sunburn, only that the Pens say its an upper body injury and he did seem to twist his right shoulder on a hit by Tampa the other night.

    Do I think they were out on South Beach or Haulover on their day off yesterday? You betcha

  15. Beau Bennett 12 points in 22 games… Might be the least talked about player putting up points

  16. Panthers pile into Fleury and score. 2-1 Pens

  17. And frigggin Upshall

  18. Lost my picture. Technical difficulties.

    Maybe the guys in the truck are sunburned.

  19. WTH? Root Sports is whack. Technical difficulties I guess. Game isn’t showing. Just the score and no sound. Grrrrrrr!

  20. Delay due to power outage.

  21. Not a power outage, as Root Sports reported. Just lost the video feed. The game continued.

  22. Pssst… the Pirates are winning 2-1 as well… bottom 7th

  23. Panthers on the PP on Cookie Highstick

  24. Rags beat Islanders 1-0

  25. Yale wins 4-0.

  26. Now 3-1 Pirates top 8th

  27. They called a penalty on that??? no way more shoulder and upper arm then an elbow.

  28. Fleury got some help there from Murray

  29. Wow, Vitale is jacked!

  30. Gudbranson cheap shot on Cooke with 1:48 left in third

  31. YES! Morrow empty netter!

  32. Empty netter for Morrow!

    Raise the jolly iceberg!

  33. Wow! As a Cornellian, nice to see an Ivy team win it all!
    I will NOT go so far as to say go Yale though lol!!
    GO IVIES!!!

  34. just watched Bylsma give a pretty awkward answer about Malkin not playing…..he didn’t seem to pleased, saying(covering for him?) day to day…. upper boddy…..reaggravation. anybody know any more about the sunburn?
