NHL

Ottawa Senators Owner – Eugene Melnyk

Well, the Penguins are facing the Ottawa Senators.  And now this whole thing of the Penguins’ Matt Cooke “purposely” using his skate to cut Senators’ Erik Karlsson’s Achilles Tendon in a weird play during the regular season is a key part of the story line. The Sens owner, Eugene Melnyk has even gone to the point of personally hiring a private investigation team to PROVE Cooke’s actions were purposeful.

But no word on Melnyk’s hiring of an investigative team for HIS player’s recent knock-out shoulder placed on the Canadiens’ Lars Keller.  And why would he?  Like Cooke’s hit, it was an unfortunate part of playing hockey!

But then…..

The other day, when it was named that it was the Pens vs. Sens in the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, apparently a few Pens fans started some nasty-word Tweets to the Sens owner.  So, instead of chucking it off an attributing it to a couple of outta control Pens fans… who may OR may not actually be from Pittsburgh, Eugene-the-Agitator stirs the pot a little more by tweeting the following message:

Some tweets we get from fans are profanity filled. That’s classless – it’s just a game. You are embarrassing your city, team & players.

Indeed it is a GAME!  And sometimes the players get hurt which is very unfortunate.  So bring in whatever investigative teams you need to chase Matt Cooke around town when he gets to Ottawa. Feel free to be distracted.

And, let’s make one of those City-vs.-City bets…like… when the Penguins beat the Senators, you agree to call off this Witch Hunt and, since those private investigators will need something to do, why don’t ya pay to have them come to Pittsburgh and, once and for all, solve OUR mystery of the B-25 Bomber crashing into and being secretly removed from Monongahela River. Now THAT’S good use of your INVESTIGATIVE money, Ya Jagoff!

NOTE TO EUGENE:  The word Jagoff is NOT profanity.

Pens Vs. Sens – Chris Neil Is Our Man

YJ-ChrisNeil

Last night’s Pens game against the Ottawa Senators was one of the first games in a loooooooooong while that I got to sit down and watch, pretty much, the entire game.  Good game.. good beer…good chocolate cheese cake that was an unmarked restaurant-leftover item sitting in the fridge SCREAMING at me to rescue it and tuck it carefully into my stomach.

The game, the beer, the cheese cake…. all equally enjoyable.  Until……. Well, watch the video below (it’s only 13 seconds long).

So what we see here is a lesson in UNBELIEVABLE PATIENCE exhibited by the Penguins’ Matt Cooke.  He gets pushed, punched and then punched in the face again!  As a result, BOTH guys get penalties.. Cooke, who literally takes an excerpt from the Bible and turns the other cheek.  For that, he gets a 10-minute misconduct penalty.  All this because… well… because he is Matt Cooke!!

If you go read the Ottawa papers and blogs, they are blaming Cooke for cutting Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson, Achilles Tendon, with his skate on purpose earlier in the game. ESPN story here.

The bottom line, Chris Neil deserves a post here for acting like…… CHRIS NEIL!  The game officials deserve a post here for penalizing Matt Cooke for…. NOTHING…oh wait.. acting like Matt Cooke USED to act.

Hey NHL officials, you remind me of my parents that, when something happened between my younger brother and I didn’t do anything…they punished ME ’cause I “should have known better” as the older person.  As we reviewed the NHL Rule Book , we actually found page 349, Paragraph 5, subsection 2.4 which is the hardly-known “you should have known better rule” implemented by some NHL hockey moms back in the 1980’s.  Hmmmm, guessing Cookie’s penalty WASN’T stoooooopid, Ya Jagoffs!

And Chris Neil…. probably if you were on our team, we might actually like you… like we “liked” the old Matt Cooke, but, you’re not … sooooo we DON’T!  And, if we had our way, we’d do to you what my parents would have done…. grab you by the short hairs on the back of your neck, twist them, pull them a little harder and then, in a very direct tone tell you, “Keep your hands to yourself,” and then send you to your room, Ya Jagoff!!

Pens Game Frustration

 

We’re Pens fans and we are feeling like sore losers sooooooooo, we’re going to whine!

Max Talbot, we had a hard time NOT-LIKING you but, now we OFFICIALLY don’t like you – professionally, not personally!

Scott Hartnell, we REALLY hate you.. professionally AND personally…including that long hair and smirk!

Referees, not sure you did anything wrong other than not stopping the madness early on so that the rest of the game didn’t get so out of control but, either way, we ALWAYS hate “the stripes” sooooooooooooooo we hate you!

Marc Andre Fleury… we don’t hate you, we hate the defense in front of you but, PLEASE get your contact lense prescription checked… we DON’T hate you.

Pens coaches, can we PLEASE do some hockey-basics coaching about how many times the boys.. Staal, Martin to be specific.. are standing around watching the game vs. taking just one extra step to beat somebody to a loose puck?  We don’t hate you but, if ya lose in the first round again this year, Mr. Shero’s gonna have to edit his Christmas card list for 2012.

And finally, to the Pens defense… quit standing around, skate to a man, skate to a loose puck, lift someone’s stick, block a shot (it’ll only hurt for a little bit), stop pinching in and for CRISSAKES….look behind you for young Flyer players that keep racing to the net and leaving you in their fog, YA JAGOFFS!!!!!!

 

NOTE:  Now that we have THAT off of our chest, LETS GO PENS!!  Make some history with  rare 4-3 comeback!!!!!
