And So It Begins. Pens Fans Love Them Some Anonymity


I was afraid this might happen. As soon as the playoff match ups were set, I said to myself "Uh-oh, here they come." And they didn't disappoint.

For the three of you unaware of the fact, The Pens Blog is one of the top rated hockey blogs on these here interwebs. They are ruthless in their pejoratives (which makes them funny as shit 98% of the time...that 2% being when their guns are pointed at your team) and Masters of the PhotoShop. And their readership is rather...enthusiastic.

What follows are the comments I received from Penguins fans following my rather (at least I thought) innocuous post below.

Penguins may be exclusive to the Southern Hemisphere, but I don't see what Australia has to do with anything.

And not nearly as much as you miss
-Alfie
-Fisher
-Spezza
-Heatley
-half a defense corps
-and something resembling an actual NHL goaltender
being able to play hockey!

It seems the life terms of the Senators will be rather short.

The picture you posted is of Malkin. Way to go JACKASS! Remember last year. It's revenge time. You MAPLE SUCKING MOOSE FUCKING CHILD TOUCHERS ARE DONE. THIS IS GOING TO BE MORE FUN THAN TAKING YOUR WIFE OUT TO A NICE SEAFOOD DINNER AND NEVER CALLING HER AGAIN.

Roberts is back bitches. Ottawa is done. At least Staal and Sidney can get a few cups if Tim Horton's before hitting round 2.

Senators suck. You suck. Your mom's gay.

Wow, I go away for a 24hrs, and somebody gives the Special Ed kids a day pass...

Okay, let's try this in order. I'll type slow for those who can't read very quickly:
  • Anonymous number...um...2: Yes, I know it's Malkin. I used the same picture after we thumped you in Game 1 last year. I was unaware that text and picture had to match. I'll try not to do it again, seeing as it seems to confuse you. Oh, and your Caps Lock is on.
  • Jeffrey: I'd like to congratulate you for manning up and being the only Penguins commenter to use an actual name. Bravo. While I have no first hand knowledge as to the potency of Gordie Howe's reproductive organs, I'd be grateful if you could point out under what circumstances you acquired yours.
  • Anons 1 & 3: Solid hockey related points raised by both of you, which I plan on addressing as soon as I can herd your friends back into their cages. Bonus points for using actual grammar and correct punctuation.
  • Anon 4: Sorry, and thanks for the tip. I'll get it right next time. "Sidney was much more whiny then he normally is..." Better?
  • Anon 5: Thank you for your contribution. I look forward to more of your well thought out counter arguments as the series progresses. Oh, and my mom asks just what is your point, exactly?
If this is the reaction I get after putting up a one sentence post accompanied by a rather run of the mill picture before the series even starts, I can't WAIT to see what happens after we win a game...or, heavens, the series. But either way, in the spirit of sportsmanship and good manners, I'd like to add...thanks for the page hits!

Haha this is all too funny, take a look at Jeffrey Paswick's blog if you havent had the distinct pleasure yet.

Besides my Sharks series, Pens-Sens is my favorite match up in the first round.

Loser Domi said...

Gareth said...

Nothing like a little bit of pompous trash talk. We'll just have to wait and see how the Gary Roberts boytoy harem fairs in the playoffs.

Duff said...

Everytime Crysby whines to the ref little ice cubes fall from his eyes.

HabsFan29 said...

all hail Jeffrey, Mr Brave with an actual name!

at least your opponents have come out. ours are strangely quiet

Baroque said...

Sometimes I wonder if, because of the extreme reaction to a single line of text, they are responding not to you at all, but to the voices rattling around in their nearly-empty heads.

The Big K said...

Pens will kick the crap out of the Sens. That piece in the NYTimes was rather laughable. That is very much a review of a homer.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

LD, Gareth, HF29, Duff, Baroque, Jared and even you Mr. Plank, thank you all! God, it was nice to see/read friendly faces. And complete sentences. And punctuation.

And, um...Big K...

That is very much a review of a homer.

I've never pretended to be anything but. And, er, that's kinda what The Gray Lady asked for. Just sayin'...
