...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

We're still winning this thing in 6 games...

Provided we can score a goal or two. Ok...so maybe I underestimated Detroit. They're very solid defensively, and if they win 2 more games, I'll concede they're the better team. But will the real Penguins come out to play? Dammit already. This sucks.

A few thoughts...

Pens have been totally outplayed in the first 2 at Joe Louis. That may be an understatement.

My goal lamp is bored.

With how good he has played, there's no reason for Chris Osgood to completely embarrass himself. Time to change those goalie pads in for a scuba suit, Ozzie.

Johan Franzen's effort as best supporting actor was kinda comical as well...

I'm sorry. But when you have trouble selling out your playoff games, the title "Hockeytown" has to be somewhat questioned.

I know that blaming the defensemen in a series where you've yet to score a goal may sound crazy, but JHC we can't get the puck up the ice. Where have all our great "puck moving defensemen" gone?

Hal Gill has resorted back to the cement shoes in lieu of skates.

Can we get a little mustard on the passes, boys? Everything coming off our sticks is just way too soft. Or, as Therrien may say..."sof."

I predict Darryl Sydor will make an appearance next game. Or at least the D-pairings need to be changed, perhaps back to the pairings we had pre-Rangers. But something on the blue line needs to change.

If this series ends up being a flop, it would hurt the NHL's popularity with the mainstream. And I could give a rat's ass.

GENO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAKE THE F#*K UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
