Hockey At Its Bestest Ever!!

When DVR was included as part of our Comcast triple play promotion, I knew my guys would love it.  I even knew that I would appreciate being able to tape my Law and Orders or Desperate Housewives whenever I want with just a mere push of a button.  But tonight, the true and real value of the DVR became apparent as Big Daddy and Youngest Son got to replay, over and over,  the hockey brawl between Goddard and Cote, blow by blow, in fabulous slow motion.


Hey, Pittsburgh Pens!  There’s a whole 3 hours of my life I’m not gonna get back–watching you guys be totally intimidated by the Detroit geezers.  I think our young guys are maybe intimidated by their veteran players?  You are allowed to hit them.  They’re not gods.  The only guy on our team that really got tough with them was our 40-something year old, Gary Roberts.  But Mr. Roberts is always tough.  We’re behind you guys.  We love our Pens.  But play like men next time and maybe score one freakin’ goal, okay?

Pittsburgh Penguins Brighten Our Rainy Days

It’s another day near the burgh–another freaking rainy day!  All I want to do is wash all of my sweaters and hang them outside to dry.  I gathered them up last week and so far only had one day that was not spitting or pouring some kind of precipitation.  I was able to wash some of the machine washable sweaters that day and hang them out to dry but I still have about a hamper full of hand washables.  It’s not only wet and dreary, it’s COLD!  Everyone I know just feels lazy and unmotivated–all I want to do is curl up under a blanket and veg.  The only bright spot–our Pittsburgh Penguins–YAY!

Last night, we could have swept the Philadelphia Flyers and crushed them in game 4.  But, why do that?  We’re up by 2 games, and the next game is in Pittsburgh.  I’m sure our guys realized how much better a win will be in Pittsburgh (rather than Philly–where they were last night) and an extra game or two in Pittsburgh will bring in more revenue to our beloved Mario Lemieux and the other Penguin owners.  Not that they would throw the game or anything.  Jordan Staal, despite just coming back from the funeral of his grandfather, played like a trooper.  The other guys did great too.  But the Super Pens are headed for the Stanley Cup finals–and they want to seal it in Pittsburgh.  Maybe then the rain will go away.
