The Pittsburgh Ten

In Disney World commercials, a kid walks into the theme park where Mickey, Donald and all the characters are lined up waiting to greet her. You know, the kind of magical thing that never happens when you actually go there.  Unless you went with us this weekend to Pittsburgh. Lindsay, Alison, Emma and I arrived from […]

Put Me In, Coach

If I were the Penguins coach (or a mom, high school principal, etc.), I imagine there would be a lot of exchanges like this one from the new episode of In the Room [video]: James Neal being a shit. Me not stopping till Neal owned up to his problem out loud. Kunitz’s face. Followed immediately […]

Look at You

As predicted by science, fate and what he looked like to begin with, post-jaw surgery and probably mid-dental work Sidney Crosby looks… Better than anyone you know in real life. This is from the party after the Honor Society show in Pittsburgh last night (says Tumblr – which is how rumors get started).  I’d apologize […]

Doomsday Prepping

Just in case tomorrow really is the end of the world, it’s been fun.  The lockout can’t ruin hockey for me.  I decide what I love about it, like the Penguins and Capitals at the same time.  Throw in a Flyer while you’re at it.  Expansion teams, underage boyfriends, never remembering if the Blackhawks are […]

Fight for Your Right

It can be tough to explain fighting to someone who doesn’t watch hockey. Try explaining this: Three seconds into the game (yes, first period), the Rangers and Devils had three simultaneous fights break out.  That’s barely enough time to make a “Yo Mama” joke!    Gloves and helmets, report to the ice surface. So what’s […]

30 is the new…

If I have to be up early on a Sunday, let there be good news every time. James Neal scored his 30th goal of the season yesterday in Pittsburgh’s win over Philly.  This morning, the Penguins announced they’ve signed Neal to a six-year contract extension [link].  Six more years?! Excuse me while I… The deal […]

And the winner is…

I missed 24/7 last night because I fell asleep re-watching Fright Night with Colin Farrell.  I mean he’s in the movie, he wasn’t with me.  And the movie’s great.  But I will have to catch up on the Rangers/Flyers this weekend, and from the sound of your Tweets there is plenty worth watching! Another thing […]

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out

I’m all for the old-fashioned let your kids play outside and get dirty, and yeah sometimes they get hurt.  They’re kids, that’s the way it goes.  But when it comes to multi-million dollar professional athletes: WEAR A VISOR. Martin St. Louis was hit in the face during Tampa Bay’s practice yesterday.  He suffered facial and […]

And the award goes to…

NEALMOBILE for the first goal of the Penguins season!  Get it, baby.  It’s going to be a great year. Stop, you can’t even!  James Neal is trending WORLDWIDE.  How many Tweets did I write?!?!

Because We Say So.

It’s time to predict the eventual winners for the 2011-2012 season, so we can look smart and important when spring rolls around.  Or not.  Last year we all picked some combo of the Caps, Blackhawks, Canucks and Penguins [link].  That 25% result is less than the chance that Intern Jeff Skinner’s going to take you […]

17 Years Ago Tonight… Rinse and Repeat.

Bieksa the Berserker was the only one who knew where the biscuit was on the ice … with a freaky deaky goal in double OT and down go the Sharks. It’s 17 years to the day that Vancouver claims the Western Conference title in a double OT as well and will face either Boston or Tampa Bay for […]

Power Outage

2 for 41. In 12 NHL playoff games, the Bruins power play has been abysmal.  Horrid.  Embarrassing. 2 for 41. Seriously, it’s not funny. Chuck is not laughing. After the Bruins dropped Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday, I’m puzzled.  Perplexed.  Flummoxed. What exactly is Coach Claude was working on in practice? […]

Call the Shots

Chuck and I are kicking it Miss Cleo-style and find we’re really on the same page about Round 1 of the Playoffs. EASTERN CONFERENCE No.1  Washington Capitals vs No.8 New York Rangers Chuck: Capitals.  Because I like way more guys on the Capitals than I do on the Rangers. Pants: Capitals.  I have always hated […]

Play-off Winners At WUYS!

Back in October, everyone here at WUYS placed their play-off predictions and I just have to say the only one who is 100% correct so far is, ah … drum roll, please … ME. (link) Capitals won the Eastern Conference and the Vancouver Canucks ran away with the Western Conference. Am I proud of that last prediction? […]

And Now For Something Completely Different.

Who says the NHL is bias? Letting the Punching Pens off when J. Staal uses another player for a nail to hang his velvet Elvis? nah … If that were Ovi, he’d be on early vacation doing the turkey dance in his mankini! Do I need to post another picture of Ovi with out his […]

Final Countdown

Fire up your synthesizer!  Here we are, post All-Star break and there are 67 days left in the regular season. Since we’re quite used to telling everyone what to do (and being ignored), here are a few things we’d like to offer for consideration: Penguins: If you stay at #2 in your division and end […]

Drop it like it's Gronk

Dude, remember that time Jordan Staal knocked you to the ice with a single punch?  You went down like shot of tequila.  From here it looked like this: Staalsy got a 5-minute major, then a match penalty.  He’s automatically suspended for the Penguins next game unless the NHL intervenes.  We say Prust could steal Natalie […]

Too Injured For All-Star Game But Not For Bowling?

Um…? The Penguins had their annual Pens and Pins Charity Bowling event on 1/17 and either Malkin and Crosby have been seeing a faith healer or something is rotten in Pittsburg. Not to taint my love for all things Letang because he is still smokin’ hot as evidenced above but for realsies? This is one of the many reasons I can’t […]

Am I Psychic?

He was Foxy Friday a few weeks back but now Mike Babcock, coach of gold medal winning Canadian Olympic Team and the Detroit Red wings, can confirm Drew’s status and then some: “Detroit Red Wings Coach Mike Babcock on Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty: “He’s just been touched by God.” Los Angeles Kings defenseman […]

My House Is Bugged Part II

Here is a novel idea, a post that’s not about the Caps or the Pens or about some hot, young hockey buck! I KNOW! The HORROR! But Puck Daddy had a link from a site called VIEW FROM MY SEATS by Matt Reitz that listed 30 things he was looking forward to in 2011. On it was […]
