BLAWG MEATS WORLD

Hey guys, thanks to @ungaba we have been able to decent section of seating in the Lower Bowl for $132 per ticket. In case you’ve been under a rock or don’t read the game is 11/18 against the Blackhawks. Our current tentative list is as follows:

@ungaba, @lauriruu, @ulfsammyson, @hawtdoge +3 (jeezus!!!), @rad88 +5 (he’s got friends!!!), @southsidegeno, @jovi, @nolongermyrealname91, @excoachnowplayerorsomethingVlad +1, @brendannnnn +1, @el wray, @Door_Matt, @randall +1, @ggb, @j-b0t, @penguininhouston, @jagrmeister, @moonstanley

SOUTH SIDE HOLIDAY INN ROOM RESERVATIONS INCLUDE:
@lauriruu, @hawtdoge, @jovi, @southsidegeno

We are now at 29 seats. That’s 22 fun-loving, beer swilling, nutso Pens fans, their assorted family members who may be not so nuts, and also Bren!!!
Go WE!!!

We need to set-up a cut-off date for this or my friend will kill me. Say Friday, September 8th? If you don’t RSVP by then, you’re OUT. Or, alternatively, you’re on your own. Deal? 

This post is to confirm that the price of $132 is okay with everyone interested in going. We are going to set up a page shortly where you deposit the money into paypal so we can purchase the tickets at once at our locked in price. If paypal doesn’t work for you email us and we can find a way to mail a check or something similar.

We are planning a pregame party as well and looking to potentially book hotel rooms together if we can get a discount, if anybody has any hotel hook-ups let us know!

  • lauriruu

    Typo in the title.

  • SouthSideGeno

    I’m in for $132/seat.

    Do we have a Section/Row(s) for this group?

    • Ungaba

      Not yet – I will get confirmation.

  • UlfSammySon

    I’m cool with $132.

    Now, do we have to let you know if we want RAD physical exams, or is that just assumed?

    • SouthSideGeno

      Ooooooo….I think I feel a sports hernia coming on…now, cough once!

      • Ungaba

        I don’t think that’s a hernia…

        • SouthSideGeno

          Himnia?

      • UlfSammySon

        Bring lots of ointment, Rad. No gloves necessary.

  • Ungaba

    Assuming that count is correct, and @brendannn ‘s blushing bride-to-be is not interested in attending (can’t blame her a bit, tbh), then the count is 18 seats.

    I will confirm 18 seats and get Section/Row details ASAP.

  • SouthSideGeno

    I had a hotel hook up once…please doan mention it to Mrs SSG.

    Are you asking if someone knows someone who works at a hotel near the Taint that we can all stay at, and can possibly get us a better rate?

  • Jovi

    i’m good with $132, as long as the seats are good

    • SouthSideGeno

      I am soooo happy to hear that you are going to make it.
      We’re gonna need someone with a clear mind to watch over us : )

      • Jovi

        “… someone with a clear mind ”
        oh really, who else is coming?

        • SouthSideGeno

          MUAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    • UlfSammySon

      Yay Jovi!!

  • SouthSideGeno

    Maybe we should start a PiH fund to get her to the game?
    I’d throw in a Grant…anybody?

    • lauriruu

      Sure!

      • SouthSideGeno

        If we got enough people to throw in…I wonder if she’d go for it?
        Give her something to smile about right now, eh?
        Wonder if her sig-other would get pissed about it?

        • lauriruu

          Let’s find out ☺️

    • UlfSammySon

      Heck yeah, I’d put some money on that.

      • Ungaba

        Seconded.

    • HawtDoge

      Yeah, I’d be more than happy to throw some in!

    • Penguin in Houston

      Awwwww, thank y’all! I’m scared to commit because if a job comes up by then, but I’d love to go!

  • SouthSideGeno

    Uh oh. You gonna bring it?
    We could really be brothers from other muthers at the game.

  • Ungaba

    From mah friend:

    “Sweet. I’ll hold 18 in section 116, higher rows is where I can get the $132 price, but I’ll figure out exactly what rows once we have a firm number.”

    Here’s the view from 116:

    • SouthSideGeno

      GREAT WORK UNG…AND BUDDY!

      We need this guy to attend so we can all buy him beers…or meat up with us before/after the game for beering!

      • Ungaba

        If he’s working the game that night, I’ll make a point of getting him over to visit, for sure.

        Also, the Lexus Club is open to anyone after the game for beverages for a while, so maybe there as well? I dunno – we have options!

        • SouthSideGeno

          Are we gonna be able to get 20 sum peeps into a Lexus?

          • Ungaba

            Your dingus-ness is, again, bottomless. Impressive, really.

          • SouthSideGeno

            My Dingus(ness) is also in my Genes.

        • lauriruu

          I doan think I am fit to drive then.

    • SouthSideGeno

      LOOK…we’re gonna be sitting right next to Crosby!!!

      • HawtDoge

        Sid Crosby?! DECENT!!!

        • SouthSideGeno

          Nope….Donnie Crosby, from Dravosburgh…that’s him right there in the left corner.

    • lauriruu

      You didn’t have to go all the way there to get the picture, Ung. #dedication

    • SouthSideGeno

      #firm

  • HawtDoge

    $132 is good with me, my dad is making final preparations, but even if he flakes I’m in for two tickets, and will bring a Philthy fan we can all mock mercilessly 😀

    (jk, I would never aid a flyers fan, even in a time of mortal need)

    • randy

      I would never flake on you son. Except that time I was supposed to pick you up from summer camp and you were just standing at the bus stop for 10 hours until the police finally brought you home but not until after you caught pneumonia.

    • Ungaba

      BRILLIANT!

    • SouthSideGeno

      hahaha…really good

    • j-b0t

      I don’t get this, like, at all.

      • Max Domi says being a captain is overrated because everyone on the team is a leader, but if you were to give a goon a “C” title he’d probably think OtHeRwIsE LoL

      • SouthSideGeno

        hahaha…you only comment on here now to say you daon get stuff?

        OK…Max Domi made a comment today regarding the Shane Doan (still SUCKS) retirement that ‘Captianship is overrated’ (Shane was never a Captian) because all players are leaders!

        I daon get you : O

      • Ungaba

        Yo j-b0t – I know you’d said before that you’d ‘try’ to figure out getting to the game. Any further thoughts? I know it’s quite the haul in from Idaho, though…

        • SouthSideGeno

          No, U-da-ho

          • Ungaba

            I do my best.

        • j-b0t

          I could easily afford going to the game, it’s getting to PGH that’s the issue at the moment. I also might be taking another trip that direction, but the two events are too far apart to combine them into one trip, and it would be a difficult thing to justify….

          Fuck it. Count me in.

          • SouthSideGeno

            WOWBOT

          • Ungaba

            Yay!

            Sorry, I realize that some of the things that I write could be construed as me thinking that people can’t afford things. That’s not the intention AT ALL. I hope I don’t offend anyone with my phrasing.

          • SouthSideGeno

            #phrasing

            I’m offended…pay me in beer on 11/18

          • Ungaba

            DEAL.

            But domestic only for the likes of you. 🙂

          • SouthSideGeno

            STELLLAAAAAAA!!!!!

          • j-b0t

            Oh you’re fine, I just meant that getting to PGH has always been the primary issue, and not the fact that I wouldn’t want to go.

          • Ungaba

            So you’re saying that IDA –> PIT isn’t a common flight?!??!?!?!

          • Took me 3 flights, one being a tiny motherfucker, to get to Sun Valley ID

          • j-b0t

            I don’t believe it is. I’ll probably have to do Boise to Portland/Seattle/San Fran to Pitt or some shit.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Sooo, you have to like leave tomorrow then?

          • j-b0t

            o shit

          • lauriruu

            The count must be like 50 something now

          • Ungaba

            19, but who’s coun… wait. I’M counting.

            19, Finn. It’s 19 now.

          • lauriruu

            So sorry. My cycling shirt was so tight that it cut the blood from going up to my braimb.

          • SouthSideGeno
          • UlfSammySon

            Helllllllllll yeah!

    • SouthSideGeno

      @brendannnn:disqus Please make that the FEATURED comment…doofusczar : )

      • I’d never do such a thing 🙂

        • SouthSideGeno

          DO. IT. OR. ELSE.

          (scary, eh?)

  • Ungaba

    The way I see it, if you’re gonna get loopy, best to have a place to shack up.

    And like I said in my post the other day, the offer is meant for those who may otherwise be concerned about the loot for the meat-up.

    Either way, I make no judgements. first-come, first serve. 🙂

    • SouthSideGeno

      Save one of those for PiH…if she can make it?

      • Ungaba

        Agreed whole-heartedly.

  • Can I edit this post’s title to “Blog Meets World”?

    • SouthSideGeno

      “MEAT”

      DO.IT.

    • Ungaba

      OH PLEASE DO THAT THING!!!!

      • SouthSideGeno

        I usurped Blawgczar and changed it!

  • lauriruu

    There’s no typo in the title.

    • SouthSideGeno

      thanks for the update, haha

  • HawtDoge

    @ungabaintrepid:disqus sorry, total dick moment here… was just talking to my sister about something unrelated and mentioned how this is coming together and she apparently wants in. Is one more ticket doable? Bringing the total to 20? Booking my hotel now so I can’t back out… I lub you, yinz are dah bessssssss

  • Penguin in Houston

    Y’all are the best! Seriously!

  • Penguin in Houston

    I’m game on the game! Only live once!

    • Ungaba

      Hotel is yours for the taking!

      • Penguin in Houston

        Wow! That’s amazing! Thank you soooo much!

        • Ungaba

          Email penshockeyblog@gmail.com and ask them to forward to me. We can review the details so I get it booked in the right name and such.

          • Penguin in Houston

            Just did!

    • UlfSammySon

      Hell yeah PiH!!!!!

    • HawtDoge

      This is getting spectacularly out of hand, in the best possible way!!!! 😀
      HOORAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

  • Penguin in Houston

    Should I wear Mario (Old Time hockey) or Geno (got Vegas gold). I even have Penguin jeans!

    • UlfSammySon

      Defffffinitely wear the Penguin jeans.

    • Jovi

      Penguin jeans? Well that’s a new one.

      • lauriruu

        Do they look like penguins? Are they made out of penguins?

        • Jovi

          I hope they aren’t real penguins or PETA will have you murdered.

        • Penguin in Houston

          Penguin logo on back pockets

      • Penguin in Houston

        Bought them three years ago at Yinzer’s in the Strip.

  • lauriruu
    • Ungaba

      I didn’t know that Ahnald was Finnish!

      • Penguin in Houston

        Austrian and Finnish!

  • Door_Matt

    I should know next week if I’ll be in town. Deer Lord and Murray permitting.

  • Ungaba

    OK, so PiH is in and Doge is bringing sister AND Dad (how adorable), so that’s 21.

    PiH, is it just your or is BF making the trek as well?

    • Jovi
      • Door_Matt

        Ung gets to play the role of Kevin Spacey. A dream come true since he first saw Glengarry Glen Ross

        • Ungaba

          Dude… it’s like… you KNOW me!

          • SouthSideGeno

            STEAK KNIVES…AGAIN?

      • Ungaba

        Black dude is the Jack of Clubs. If that’s not rassis, I dunno what is.

        • PensPointsYourMom

          and Kevin Spacey is the ace of hearts, if that’s not homophobiss I don’t know what is.

    • Penguin in Houston

      He won’t go. Running a business, never takes time off.

      • Ungaba

        Bummer for him, as it will definitely be epic!

    • HawtDoge

      My sister is a blog lurker, so she basically counts as one of us, just if one of us what unable type or somesuch 😀

  • Penguin in Houston

    Yuh, I’m pumped!

    Y’all sure we didn’t go to war while I was hurricaning?

    • lauriruu

      N-Korea is trying their hardest apparently

      • SouthSideGeno

        I hear they’re coming after Finland first. They are looking for that sweet sweet Finlandia juice to make it their own.

  • Ungaba

    OK, minor updates complete. 21 seats.

    We have until Friday, September 8th to RSVP. Speak up by then or you’re on your own!

  • SouthSideGeno

    Why did I already assume that? hahaha…hic!

    • lauriruu

      Russians used to drop bombs here because the name of this town was written on the corks of the Molotov’s coctails.

      • SouthSideGeno

        Lucky you….now they’re dropping fashion bombs from Magnitogorsk!
        Time changes erreystuff

  • randy

    Before yinz buy tickets, can we discuss which seats would see Toews expressing leadership twice? I doan want to be on the wrong side of the ice while that is happening for 2 of the 3 periods.

    • lauriruu

      I am sure we will all miss it.

      • randy

        Yeah, we’ll all miss it a lot once the game is over.

        • lauriruu

          How do you miss something that was never there in the first place?

          • randy

            It is always there. In every stadium and in every sport. Sir. Johnathan A. Toes’s Leadership can’t be measured.

          • lauriruu

            Can Canadians be knighted?

          • SouthSideGeno

            Only by Kload Girwho

          • lauriruu

            Is it by grabbing le butt?

          • SouthSideGeno

            …then he drops that sword on yer shoulder…and only at Knight : /

          • Ungaba

            They can’t all be good, right?

          • randy

            Girwho does grab a lot of *le buts*, on account of being the best player to ever play the sport.

          • randy

            The lone exception for British / Canadian titular honours would be Toes and the guy from Nickelback.

    • Ungaba

      His leadership is so apparent that we could be outside of the Taint and still see it.

  • lauriruu

    I RSVP

    If Big Beau was as good a hockey player as he was a person, he’d challenge Sid for best in the game. What a gem!

    • randy

      Aww bro bennett.

    • lauriruu

      He is still eligible for the Calder Trophy.

  • PenguinPelts

    I’m going to wait until after this game to be the guy that calls you all dicks for not ever telling me about it.

      We’d all love to have you join us. Just commit, in writing, on here and you’ll be ticketed and responsible for payment on PayPal. Any of your travel and lodging is on you, of course.

      So doan be a dik and do come to the game with us.
      ok then

    • Ungaba

      You have commented on this post and are therefore irrevocably ineligible from disavowing knowledge of said game.

      Ipso facto, quid pro quo, e pluribus unum.

      You just got LAWYERED, son! Awwwwwwwwww yeahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

  • PensPointsYourMom

    I don’t really care about Grabner or Scheifele, but when I see that WSH blew up their roster (in part) to sign a 30 year old Yoshie to an 8 year contract, and I look at that shooting % chart, I get wood.
    http://mynhltraderumors.com/pucks-in-depth-three-players-likely-to-regress-in-2017-18/2017/08/30/

    • j-b0t

      Who?

      • PensPointsYourMom

        Oshie = Yoshie

        • Rad88

          I had no clue he was 30. when will teams stop signing players until they are 38?>

          • PensPointsYourMom
          • SouthSideGeno

            Woah…hahaha…put the mushrooms dahn PPYM

          • PensPointsYourMom

            ok, so Trotz is about to bust Oshie’s SC bubble and wake him up, and Oshie is having a dream in that dream he imagines the eagle licking Leonsis’ head, and imagines also licking Ted’s head. Its literal, there’s no hidden meaning 😉

          • SouthSideGeno

            Yuh…uh hu…I see that…completely reasonable

      • Ungaba

        Great new avi

        • SouthSideGeno

          Oh yeah…just noticed…it is a good one.

    • PenguinPelts

      I don’t agree about Scheifele, that guy is a stud. The only way he regresses would be because he’s on the Jets and they fall apart around him.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        I think the article was just saying a 20% Shooting % isn’t sustainable. Not that he’s a bad player. I like Scheifele, but agree that scoring on 1 out of every 5 shots isn’t a fair expectation.

        • PenguinPelts

          I really don’t like how advanced stats folks look at flashes in the pan, like this, as the norm and then use it as a reason to talk a really good player down. Of course scoring 1 out of 5 chances isn’t the norm and will level out.

  • Rad88

    Wow, I never imagined we would get over 10 people to go. I should know by the 8th for sure so that’s no problem.

    • Jovi

      Well, I’m only going because I was promised a pony. Oh and I guess to see the Fin, but, mainly the pony.

      • Rad88

        damn, I should’ve held out for the promises

        • Jovi

          I will teach you much, grasshopper.

  • Rad88

    The Caps have 4 years left on Ovechkins deal, he will be 35 at the end of it, and they still only have 5 NHL defenders and one is Taylor Chorney

    • PensPointsYourMom

      mmmmm…fap fap fap fap fap

    • Jovi

      only 35! Geez, he isn’t aging well.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        he’s only 31 now.

  • PensPointsYourMom
    • SouthSideGeno

      I’m guessing that’s not the first wet head that’s been in that cup.

      • PensPointsYourMom

        yeah, how many wet heads in the cup with a priest nearby tho?

        • SouthSideGeno

          hahaha…I’m thinking creepy thoughts now.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            come on in, please take off your shoes at the door.

          • Ungaba

            I don’t like the feeling of shag carpeting betwixt my toes, thanks anyways.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Shag carpeting is code for dog & pubic hair carpeting

          • PensPointsYourMom

            pfft…that’s some cut-rate pubic hair carpet, my shit is 100% black and curlies.

          • Ungaba

            Still young.

            Maybe the most disturbing day in my life was when I discovered a gray pube. There’s no turning back from that.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Was it stuck in yer teeth?

          • PensPointsYourMom

            LOL

          • Ungaba

            Yeah, so that was LOL funny.

  • PensPointsYourMom

    Given Malkin’s outburst today about wanting to play with Denis Zaripov, I actually don’t think its terrible idea if Zaripov doesn’t want ridiculous money. Zaripov is an aging (36) LW, he’s been a pretty consistent 20G 40P guy in the KHL. I don’t know his style or if the pens could afford him, but its not crazy.

    • PensPointsYourMom

      EDIT: I’m rethinking all that after reading about him doping. Without moral judgment about doping, I have to wonder if his success is drug induced and whether he would be able to a consistent offensive threat without ‘roids.

      • SouthSideGeno

        At first I thought…he’s too old.
        Then I thought …if Geno want’s him he might just be worth it for a year.

        I didn’t know about the doping….now I doan want him.

        You really should consider doing a bi-monthly post during the season.

        I haven’t researched it, but was his doping around the olympics when the Russians were making all the non-NHL players dope?

        • PensPointsYourMom

          I’m too lazy to really dig at it, but here’s an informative article. Looks like the suspension came in July, I don’t know when or why the samples were taken.
          https://www.sbnation.com/2017/8/28/16218078/danis-zaripov-nhl-free-agency-rumors-doping-khl-iihf-suspension-rangers

          • Rad88

            pretty interesting that the NHL has different substances on their list

          • PensPointsYourMom

            I find it immeasurably disheartening that a country renowned for being soft on steroids, even leaning towards institutional condonance, has a more rigid standard for doping than the NHL

          • Rad88

            those were my thoughts as well. I mean a 2 year ban!? The NHL is too scared to give more than a 10 game suspension for illegal hits, not a good look to pardon him in my mind

          • PensPointsYourMom

            I could understand the draw if he was up and coming superstar, but he’s basically a Russian Radim Vrbata.

            Also did “we” already discussed Wayne Doan’s retirement

          • Rad88

            I went on Twitter and told people that jsut because a guy plays 20 years for one team and is nice to the media doesn’t make him a legend

          • PensPointsYourMom

            LOL. 55 playoff GP in 20 years. I know the Yotes blow ass, but damn. Sid’s played almost 3 times as many in half as much time. Holeby has played more playoff games than Doan, and the caps can’t get out of the second round.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            EDIT: or here’s one:
            Wayne Doan – 15 career playoff goals in 20 years.
            Jake Guentzel – 13 career playoff goals in 1 year.

          • Rad88

            that’s what was pissing me off. Everyone was like “such a great leader” “what agreat player.” I respect that he was able to play for 20 years, but he didn’t lead his team to shit and he managed an embarrassing 0.68 points per game while doing it. Just because a guy retires doesn’t mean we have to lick his nuts for doing something he didn’t

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Licking Doan’s nuts is a dirty, dirty job. But yeah, fuck that guy. All he did was survive, there is nothing noteworthy about his entire career.

    SSG 11/18 HOTEL UPDATE SPECIAL:

    If we stay in the Omni William Penn Hotel on Grant street it’s about a 10-15 minute, relatively flat walk to the stadium and we can get a rate of $134/night….NON-REFUNDABLE

    The next lowest rate is the Cambria which is right next door to the Taint for $143/night…NON-REFUNDABLE

    Holiday Inn Express on the South Side (10th Street) is $162/night…NON-REFUNDABLE…but I’ve stayed there before and I know it includes free parking and breakfast.

    I think I’ll call them tomorrow to find out about parking costs and to see if they can give us a lower rate if we book a block of rooms.

    HOW MANY ROOMS WILL WE NEED

    • UlfSammySon

      If I had more than a 2 bedroom apartment, I’d just have everyone stay at my place in the city. Maybe next year when I wins dat POWERBALL!

      Geno, check out the north shore hotels too… They’re just a quick T (our shitty metro for those who don’t know) ride away from the Paint Can. They might be cheaper, especially if the Steelers are away that weekend.

    • Ungaba

      Depends… I mean, I know you’re big, but you look like a snuggler. So I’m thinking 2 double beds is where you want to be. So that’s 4 in your room alone.

      • UlfSammySon
      • SouthSideGeno

        THAT’S IT!
        Me and my sidekick…MAJIK FIN are staying with you at yer house.
        And you’re making us baconblueberrypancakes.

        • Ungaba

          Dude, I would enjoy the SHIT out of that. But I live 12 miles outside of the city so it doesn’t make a lot of sense. We could do it, but it would eat into our ‘fun time’.

          • SouthSideGeno

            hahaha…yuh…I’m trying to find a close hotel (to the Taint) but not tooo spensive.

            Dose anyone on here have a hotel contact in PGH?

          • Ungaba

            I don’t, just those Marriott points, sorry.

            And Mrs. Ung will kill me if I use em all.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Hahaha…we can’t have that.

            No worries…you’ve done plenty!
            I’ll find us two rooms but I may not be able to set anything up on a group level.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Yinz should stay at the YMCA, I think Allegheny has rooms, maybe Oakland.

          • SouthSideGeno

  • HawtDoge

    This morning I got in my first fender bender in 17 years of driving… I guess should be grateful?

    • PensPointsYourMom

      sorry, even when its minor its still a hellstorm of feels and unfamiliar processes.

      • Agree, it’s the worst. And yeah, minor ones SOUND awful even if it’s just a slight bump or something. Makes your heart go 150 bpm for a few seconds

    • Ungaba

      It happens to everyone eventually. My first was my fault and I totaled my car. Nobody was hurt, thankfully, but it was really scary.

      • HawtDoge

        wow, yeah, I’m glad it wasn’t anything serious today. The worst part about is that the other party was acting shady and said their insurance was “in their other car”. The whole thing is on the security footage at the gas station I was at, so i’m not too worried, but still. I’m doubting they have insurance and I’ll just wait to see if they contact me.

  • RadioBirdman79

    SO….you guys…well most of you guys anyway, don’t know each other, or have never met before?

    • Ungaba

      That’s a true statement

      • RadioBirdman79

        Like in real life?

        • Ungaba

          The vast majority of us have never met each other IRL.

          As far as I know, @brendannn and myself are the only ones who have actually met.

          • HawtDoge

            I’ve met @brendannnn:disqus but it was so long ago and I don’t even know if we’ve ever had an actual conversation, and if we did I was probably PRET-AY PRET-AY drunk 😀

          • lauriruu

            How do you feel about hanging out with both of your dads?

          • HawtDoge

            I’m afraid I might be creating a time paradox or something of that sort… 😀

          • I don’t think we’ve ever actually met but we ran in similar circles in college

          • HawtDoge

            We were probably in the same room multiple times 😀

          • Probably, I was a dick/awful person back then so I’m glad we didn’t meet

        • RadioBirdman79

          Over at our blog, I think we made a secret group on Facebook, invite only. Just about everyone is on there too.

          • Ungaba

            Facebook is stupid. Boo Facebook.

          • RadioBirdman79

            Plus we’ve mostly all met before, and if not in person, we’ve all been friends on Facebook for years

          • Ungaba

            I joke, but that is cool. Good on yinz. We may well get to that point eventually, but we’re pretty new to all of this.

          • RadioBirdman79

            Yeah, we’ve managed to not kill each other. So that’s good….

          • Ungaba

            Pro tip: Avoid politics.

            But you probably already know that.

          • RadioBirdman79

            Mostly everyone on our blog leans left to some degree. It pops up from time to time when something really fucked up happens.

            And even now, a couple of the more conservatives almost agree

          • Ungaba

            Like I said, best to just avoid. 🙂

          • SouthSideGeno

            Thanks cousin Dauwnnie ; )

            oh god here we go.

            Nope…Chris Bale…hannys dahn

            Keaton for sure.

          • RadioBirdman79

            Plus, we do have a few international peeps. One in Portugal, Australia, Germany and Brazil…

          • Ungaba

            We did this once before. Our International guy is in Finland. And I think a Portugeuse dude as well, though he hasn’t been around during the off-season.

          • RadioBirdman79

            Your blog is more lively in the summer….. ours gets kinda boring except for the same 10 or 12 regulars

          • Ungaba

            That’s true here as well, really. Maybe 8 ‘all the time’ people, but closer to 20 relatively regular contributors.

          • PensPointsYourMom

            don’t forget about Brazil

          • Ungaba
          • lauriruu

            This one was even better

          • Ungaba

            Yeah, it’s almost like I didn’t have enough coffee in my system yet or something.

    • The66thDopefish

      As someone who met a large group of Internet people he did not know beforehand, I can say that it’s probably not something to worry about. Just don’t be weird or not pay your fair share of something and you’ll be fine. (Or at least pretend not to be weird, it’s just one day FFS.)

      (P.S.: one of the Internet people I met is my wife and mother of my son now. @jovi00:disqus and @PenguininHouston:disqus: watch out)

        i’ll make sure to gird my loin then

          Gird. What a weird word.

          • SouthSideGeno

    SSG 11/18 HOTEL SPECIAL UPDATE:

    I just spoke with Alex at Holiday Inn Express (10th St. South Side) we can get a block of 10 rooms for $139/night. That is the best I could find anywhere close to the Taint. I’ve stayed there before it’s simple but nice.
    King bed, non-smoking, free internet & breakfast, parking is $18/night.

    I need to know how many of yinz are interested. PLEASE RESPOND ON HERE SOON. (Today or tomorrow please)

    • lauriruu
    • Ungaba

      If that’s the consensus, we should get PiH there with yinz too. The one I can get is right next to the taint, which is a hike from that HIE you found.

      • SouthSideGeno

        You talking CAMBRIA suites on Center Ave?

        I tried calling there also and the person was out…I’m calling back after 12pm.

        • HawtDoge

          I think he was talking about the Center City Marriott, that’s where I got a room

          • SouthSideGeno

            So Doge…yer telling me you are already booked for a hotel for the weekend of 11/18?
            Can you share the rate with me?

          • HawtDoge

            My reservation is at the CC Marriott for $144 plus fees with my AAA membership discount, which i’m not sure did anything.

          • Ungaba

            Yes, that’s the one I can use points at.

            I just looked at the Spring Hill Suites in the SouthSide, but they don’t like my points that weekend. : /

          • SouthSideGeno

            Lowest rate I see online for the CCM is $160/night…the HIE on the SS is only a short Uber away from the Taint and we can walk the SS.

            I’ma call the Cambria (which is just up the hill on Center, from the Taint) later today.

  • oh yeah? well.. your whole.. mom.. is.. big.

    • Ungaba

      What’s also funny is that the truck was at a Dunkin Donuts. And you definitely don’t look like you frequent donut shops…

      • Definitely not the one in Squirrel Hill.. It’s *shudder* vegetarian!

        • Ungaba

          There’s a vegetarian DD? I don’t know how I feel about that. I mean, so what, right? Let those veg people get fat too. But it still strikes me as odd.

  • SouthSideGeno

    Just got this email from the Sales guy I spoke with at the HIE on the South Side…they have free shuttles to the TAINT! $129/night for a group rate : )

    Hello again Gene,
    In addition to making sure we had each other’s information, I definitely wanted to give you some information you could feel free to pass out about our hotel.

    10 minute walk to arena
    Courtesy shuttle available from 7a-11p should weather not permit walking
    Breakfast included in rate
    “All-suite” property
    Will have rooms with 1 king bed as well as rooms with 2 queens
    All rooms have queen sized sleeper sofa in them as well
    Walking distance to literally over 200 bars, restaurants, and galleries (entertainment center of PGH)
    Comp Wi-Fi in private and public areas of hotel
    Heated indoor pool

    Most importantly, our non-member rates are beginning at $169 for this weekend. Gene, I know I quoted you at $139 on the phone, but I wanted to make sure you all got a solid opportunity to cut additional costs. I can drop your rate to $129 for the group! The rate would be good for the whole weekend.

    I hope you are able to rally the troops for this one! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I think it is very cool you guys are doing this as a huge hockey fan myself!

    • HawtDoge

      Ok, so it’s sounding like I should cancel my other reservation. I’m gonna hold off for now, but if you need one more room just lemme know and i’ll switch!

      • SouthSideGeno

        OK…good. That makes 4 of us you, PiH (right UNG?) Fin and me…so far.

        • Ungaba

          Yeah, PiH should go there to be with the family. We’ll just have to work out the financials at this point.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Are you saying that HIE will NOT take yer points?

          • Ungaba

            Correct. Thems kids wants DOLLAHS.

            (My points are Marriott and Holiday Inn Marriott)

          • SouthSideGeno

            Butt…butt…Holiday Inn Express???

            Why they no take yer points? Geno no unnerstan.

          • Ungaba

            Marriott (and now Starwood) are completely separate from Holiday Inn.

            When I walk into a Marriott hotel, people say, “Hello, Mr. Ung! We are SOOOOO happy you are here and are a very important Platinum Elite Super Member – what free things would you like?”

            When I walk into a HIE, they say, ‘Who are you, again?’.

            I stay at Marriott hotels exclusively. Makes for lovely free vacations… at Marriott hotels.

          • SouthSideGeno

            My cousin has that same experience. I read yer other post wrong…you were saying Marriott does not equal Holiday Inn. I get it now.

            So what do we do now?
            PiH can stay in my room : /

            hahahaha

          • Ungaba

            We all talked about ‘pitching in’ to help her out, so we need to determine just how deep our pockets go on this. 🙂

            I can’t commit $100, but will gladly throw in $20

          • SouthSideGeno

            Can’t we just let her stay at eh Marriott? Yer still good with that right?
            It’s not like we’re gonna be spending any real time in the hotels anyway…just to sleep and shower, right?

            I’m in for $50 in any case.

          • Ungaba

            That’s fine as well, and I’m happy to do it.

    • Jovi

      sounds good. does taint = arena?

      • SouthSideGeno

        Yes…so I can count you in? You will make 5 rooms, so far.

        • Jovi

          yeah, count me in for rooms.

          • SouthSideGeno

            WOOOOWHOOO : )

    Guy’s outta control…dahn-er causing trubble with some guy named Harvey!

    • Jovi

      Crosby, Texas. Sounds like a random destination stop on my way to Vegas.

      • SouthSideGeno

        NO…STAY AWAY FROM 87 TEXAS…FAR AWAY

  • Ungaba

    22, huh? Are you sure there aren’t a few cousins lying around that you’re not telling us about?

    • HawtDoge

      If we want to break some sort of group ticket purchasing record this can be arranged!

      Seriously though, if anyone has objections to this, just let me know, I’m more than happy to go back and talk to them and make a plan to go to a different game with them some other time. For real, don’t feel bad if you feel like i’m overstepping some sort of social boundary, because I already feel like that. I guess i’m just bad at saying no. Damn, I don’t even have kids yet… this could be very bad…

      • Ungaba

        Literally, the more the merrier. If you’re embarrassed, just introduce your sister as PPYM or MR since they won’t be coming anyway. 🙂

        No, there is nothing to apologize for. We’re just a bunch of Pens fans meating up to watch our favoritest team!

        • HawtDoge

          Ok, whew… I was hoping someone would say SOMETHING! 😀

          • SouthSideGeno

            SOMETHING!
            : O

    • Jovi

      So no Kevin Spacey?

      • Ungaba

        Indeed. Doge frked it all up.

        My dream dies today.

    • HawtDoge

      Wait I was talking total count… not my personal count… was that the joke? am I dumb as Girwho? I THINK I GOT THE WHIPLASH THIS MORNING! SUE! SUE! SUE!

      • Ungaba

        I was intimating that later on you’ll tell us to ‘add another one’ to your list.

        That’s it, that’s the joke.

        • HawtDoge

          Oh, actually you just reminded me, there’s one more… jk jk, please kill me

          • SouthSideGeno

            When you get this all figgered please let me know how many rooms you will need and what configuration of beds for each please?

            I’m calling the guy back tomorrow.

          • HawtDoge

            Ok, we can make one room work just fine, but i’m kinda assuming we’ll take two. I’ll let you know for sure later today

          • SouthSideGeno

            Righty-right!

          • HawtDoge

            Ok, can’t get a hold of anybody. Is there a minimum number of rooms you need to get that rate?

          • SouthSideGeno

            He told me I could do 10 and if we doan use em all I can call up to a month before and cancel any number of rooms in the block and still keep the quoted rate and not pay any penalties!

            I just really need to know the room/bed config so you get what you will need…or, you can sleep in Fin’s room…hahaha

          • lauriruu

            What’s wrong with that????

          • SouthSideGeno

            Some peeps doan wanna sleep with fish hanging/drying from the celing.

          • lauriruu

            Got me there. They help me sleep.

          • SouthSideGeno

            I’m envisioning a multicolored fish mobile playing Brahms’s lullaby?

          • lauriruu

            Is this a joke? Real fish.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Yes…real fish. Our hotel is right on the bank of the Monongahela River. I picked this hotel so you could go spearfishing at night. Catfish are blue…Carp are gold…Muskie are green/brown…we can get the hotel to pipe in the music…I’m always looking aut fer ya buddy!

          • lauriruu

            Do Murican fish play classical music?

          • Ungaba

            If you jam a bluetooth speaker in their guts they do

    • Jovi

      Does anyone else think HDoge has not been telling his fam the truth, because who the hell would want to meet this group.
      I think he doesn’t want to be catfish(ed), so he needs back up.

      • Ungaba

        I’m so glad you’re coming to this since you’re obviously the smartest person on this blawg.

      • HawtDoge

          THANK YOU SIR….MAY I HAVE ANOTHER?

    • Ungaba

      In other words, at least one Doge family member.

      • HawtDoge

        I’m putting money on my Dad, or me. It’s not fair if i bet on myself though…

    • Jovi

      I’ll never back to jail; I’d rather die.

      • Ungaba

        After that dime upstate, who can blame you?

      • UlfSammySon

        We’ll cover you Jovi. You had NO IDEA we would steal those cop cars…

    • lauriruu

      I’m definitely interested!

      • UlfSammySon

        I don’t know if it’s still the case, but for a while at least, Pittsburgh had the most bars per capita in the country.

        • SouthSideGeno

          …and boat registrations…what a combination!

          • Ungaba

            Well yeah, obvs. Why drink if you’re not going to go boating?

    • SouthSideGeno

      They’ll never take me alive!

  • jagrmeister

    Wow, this is amazing! I haven’t been on much this summer (or since I got my new job back in the burgh, site is blocked), but this is pretty cool.

    • SouthSideGeno

      You wanna come to the game with us on 11/18…ya big pussy cat?

      • jagrmeister

        Sounds like a fun time, I’ll have to check my schedule and consult the wife

        • SouthSideGeno

          “Shame on you for a month of Sundays if you miss this one!”

          Bring her?

          • jagrmeister

            We’ll see what happens. She knows the joint calendar better than I do. If I/we can make it I’ll be sure to wear my old school 68 jersey

          • SouthSideGeno

            You will need to let UNG know by next Friday ( I think that’s the cutoff) for tickets.

            Any chance you will want to reserve a room to stay over on the South Side at the Holiday Inn Express?

          • jagrmeister

            I will be sure to let ung know by then. Don’t need a room, I’m in the north hills now. Little bro in South side slopes if it gets out of hand haha

          • SouthSideGeno

            ; )

            GREAT….really hope you can make it. meeeeooooow

          • UlfSammySon

    • SouthSideGeno

      Malkin?

    • SouthSideGeno

      Oh shiz…I bet I know…KESSEL, amIrite?

    • My vote is Winnik tho

      • UlfSammySon

        He was definitely in my top 3 guesses.

      • Third Line Center Vlad

        Claude Giourxxrewiouroiweur5oiweur is so overrated, saw an article where they predicted a bounce back year this year.. lol

        • He’s not MEDIOCRE though

          Overrated is a whole nother world, I’d put Toews at #1

          • Third Line Center Vlad

            yea, he is terrible, calling Claude Mediocre is insulting mediocre players.

  • SouthSideGeno

    OK…soooo, one room with a double queen set up and a pull out couch?
    I’ll try my best to get you that, and let you know if there is any problem from HIE’s side.

    • HawtDoge

      I believe every room has a pull out… not a joke, i know, hard to believe.

      • SouthSideGeno

        I think yer right…just bringing it up …just in case.
        ; )

  • UlfSammySon

    It seems like this has been covered, but I’m of the understanding that all are welcome 🙂

    Fuck it, let’s get a whole section filled.

    • lauriruu

      We’re going to need a bigger arena!

  • Third Line Center Vlad

    I am so ready for this game! @excoachnowplayerorsomethingVlad I might change my name to that..

    • SouthSideGeno

      Me too! You gonna need a hotel room?

      I think you name isn’t long enough…
      : /

      • Third Line Center Vlad

        Nah, I’ll take an uber down and back or the wife will drive. I am only in Ross.

        • SouthSideGeno

          TY..ok.

          Let’s see if you can get a few moar letters in that name before “we” approve it..mmmk?

    I bet the chicks love this guy.

    • Third Line Center Vlad

      My friend’s husband is named Richard Longmore Jr. yes, Dick Longmore Jr. his parents game him a championship porn name.

    • SouthSideGeno

      Funny o’le parents.

    • We almost got this place for our wedding named “Choderwood”

      CHODE OR WOOD.

      • Ungaba

        If you have to choose, ‘chode’. But neither, please.

        • No way man, if I had to choose I’m going with “wood”

          • Ungaba

            Makes sense. My mom says you like it when she wears the ‘device’.

          • If I had to choose to have, get screwed by, or have a wedding in, I’m choosing “wood” every time. Go big or go home.

          • SouthSideGeno

            You need to change yer avatar…BIG WOOD BREN

      • Third Line Center Vlad

        I wonder if locals call it “The Chode”

      • SouthSideGeno

        WUT is wrong with the owner’s of that place?
        hahaha

      • HawtDoge
        • Jovi

          Light or Wood?

          • HawtDoge

            A push-light has always been the easiest way for me to explain what a chode is. ie:
            chode (n): A dingus in similar proportion to a push-light.

  • SouthSideGeno

    @ungabaintrepid:disqus
    I just spoke with PiH…she is choosing to stay at the Marriott…Fin and I will guarantee her safe return to her room erreynight.

  • Ok, Mrs. Brendannnnn said she’s in

    • Ungaba

          • Ungaba

            “…and also Bren”

            So you ruined my joke? Thanks.

    • Door_Matt

          • Door_Matt

            😛 That is my side gig

        • Door_Matt

          Not yet. That sentence was poorly worded.

          I will be relocating to the Burgh if I get the job. I won’t need lodging.

  • Jovi

    If there’s gonna be 23+ of us, can we quickly turn this into a corporation and get a cheaper rate?

    • HawtDoge

      Like incorporate and pick a company name? I would like to suggest “Dah Dahn Tahn Renahn Kumpnee”

      • Jovi

            Gimbles always connoted a ball sac to me. Like…’I got kicked in ma Gimbles!’

          • SouthSideGeno

            Jeebus yes…doan know about the Wee Folk anymoar, haven’t been there on a weekend night in years.

      • lauriruu

        Hey! For some reason I just won’t research this on my own… what is the weather like there in mid November?

        • SouthSideGeno

          Cold-ish. Bring a coat just in case…usually in the 50’s daytime…high 30’s – 40’s at night.
          That’s Fahrenheit….ya Nor-dik

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Also “November” is an ancient indigenous word for “cold rain” I will likely rain, and the rain will be cold.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Yuh…true dat…bring a hat

            Hey, I think I just ‘rapped’ that comment.

          • Penguin in Houston

            I’m the cool cousin.

          • SouthSideGeno

            November was the ninth month of the ancient Roman calendar. November retained its name (from the Latin novem meaning “nine”) when January and February were added to the Roman calendar.

            Take it…like it : P

          Oh, is that the deal with your new HIE buddy? Well I guess we might as well head out Friday night then 😀

          • SouthSideGeno

            Toat’s McGoats!…butt only if you want to. I plan on letting them know that some of our party might only check in on Saturday.

          • HawtDoge

            Ok, I’ll check with my entourage…
            We got “Bowling Ball on Chopsticks” (me), “Short-cute” (my wife), “Older, more experienced Bowling Ball on Chopsticks” (my dad), and “The Ginger Fury” (my sister).

            This is why all my friends let me pick their nicknames 😀

      • Penguin in Houston

        Me, prolly the 19th in the afternoon.

      • SouthSideGeno

        Fin and I will be heading back to Philthy on Sunday…checkout is 11am so sometime after that.

  • Penguin in Houston

    Another question, in the history of the interwebs, has there ever been a meetup of this size for a Chel game with people who doan know each other in person?

    • I’m sure r/hockey has had similar ones but we can claim that we’re record breakers

      • Penguin in Houston

        We need to take some good photos. Oh, maybe a pens.hockey group sign for the game?

        • SouthSideGeno

          mmmmm. blackmail photos…muahahaha

          • lauriruu

            So… photos of Reaves?

          • Penguin in Houston

            rassis

      • SouthSideGeno

        Blawg-downer-czar?

        • Third Line Center Vlad

          I went to a meetup at a Islander’s game with people from NYC, but my friend new most of them… so… don’t know if that counts…

          • Penguin in Houston

            Did anyone travel halfway across the country?

          • Third Line Center Vlad

            not that I know.. I just came from PGH, but NYC is like a second home really, so that really doesn’t count even

    • SouthSideGeno

      NEVER…I’m calling Guinness…or drinking Guinness…I always get those confused

      • Penguin in Houston

        Vodka is better!

        • SouthSideGeno

          I’m good either way!

  • lauriruu

    I’ve always thought he is a right cunt.

    • Third Line Center Vlad

      why my neighbors won’t look at me.. work on a car in the back yard I realized I am not on my parents acreage after I yelled “why the fuck does everything have to be a fucking cunt” after I dropped a new socket and driver down into the engine bay…

      • SouthSideGeno

        I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS…especially with my big-o’le man fingers, can’t get in anywhere to reach stuff.

        • Third Line Center Vlad

          for a fat guy, I don’t suffer from Sausage fingers.. but yea, I do have bigger hands, more long fingers… it was just one of those, you set the wrench down and it slides and you can’t catch it… and then it ends up inside the bumper… not a good time…

  • SouthSideGeno

    Not raining in Houston anymoar though right?

    • Penguin in Houston

      Nope! We’re supposed to get a cool front next week with temps in the 70’s for the high. Normal is 98. Earlly Fall! No wonder my husky is already blowing coat.

      • SouthSideGeno

        WUT? Geno thinks he’s a husky?

        Or is that what he looks like after he blows his coat….hahaha

        • Penguin in Houston

          Rooney is a husky. Geno is a chihuahua and Stargell is chi/rat terrier.

  • Penguin in Houston

    Booze is no problemo!

    • lauriruu

      And yes I’d like to have music to sing to.

  • Girl Talk – Broken Ankles EP is a critically overlooked album that no one here will like so I don’t know why I’m commenting about it.

    • Penguin in Houston

      SMH

    • HawtDoge

      Greg is my homeboy! Not really, but Jordan and I would get drunk and listen to the new albums back in the day. I had not heard this, and will now check it out 😀

      • I love doing work to his mashups, but Broken Ankles is something different entirely. Still love getting things done to it. But I wouldnt like, put my feet up and pour whiskey and listen to it

        • If you listen to it (just youtube it) @HawtDoge:disqus , make sure to stick it out until at least 10:00 (in the youtube clip) it becomes a real banger out of nowhere

    • SouthSideGeno

      Fishing for upvotes so you can identify the losers?
      hahaha

      I shouldn’t say that…I doan even know that band…saarry

      • Keep it that way, this is mostly for HawtDoge

        • SouthSideGeno

          Yaaaasir!

          • HawtDoge

            You might like the violence up top, but then shut it off 😀

  • Penguin in Houston
  • lauriruu

    It won’t be a BRAHN wedding…. plz Deer lord!

  • UlfSammySon

    • Jovi

      Will you probation officer let you travel yet?

      • randy

        My usual response to my parole officers is fuck ’em. Usually just shout YOLo right in their face.

  • UlfSammySon

    Just saying… I am willing to pick people up from the airport if yinz need rides into tahn.

      Uber really has gone downhill fast

      • UlfSammySon

        My truck is 28 years old, Uber wouldn’t dare let me drive 🙂

        • randy

          Noice! What truck?

          • UlfSammySon

            1990 Danger Ranger.

        • SouthSideGeno

          So yuh…ERREYBODY PILE IN …hahaha

    • Penguin in Houston

      Cool!

    • SouthSideGeno

      Can you pick me and Fin up in Philthy?

      • UlfSammySon

        Sure, that’s like what, 3 miles from the Pixburgh airport?

  • Jovi
  • randy
    • Penguin in Houston

      Weird looking symbol thingy.

      • randy

        I think they’ve taken a small portion of the jersey emblem and mounted on a card, and what we’re seeing is the glove of the penguin.

        • SouthSideGeno

          Seems kinda creepy to me. Almost like something you’d sell/buy if he had died wearing his sherzy. Hard pass.

          • randy

            there are so many types of ‘cards’ like that. Even though they say xx/75, they put them out every year, and have all kinds of more or less ‘rare’ variants, trying to sucker kids into buying the packs I guess. So would you buy an autographed Jagr / Lemieux patch card if the price is right?

    • PensPointsYourMom

      dat face tho!!

      • randy

        That’s a Kessel sees hotdog look.

        • SouthSideGeno

          LOL…totally

  • Penguin in Houston
    • PensPointsYourMom

      should have picked a city with less “snow”

      • Penguin in Houston

        Are you coming to the meatup?

        • PensPointsYourMom

          negative

          • randy

            we need you to bring the “snow”

        • he’s afraid

          • Penguin in Houston

            Chicken little was afraid of the falling sky.

  • Binret

    Hey I’ll be in the upper bowl for this game, but am totally down for pregame festivities or after parties. Let me know. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/116a598284486286414de76f4f2777d2c1c1f10c8b539a0b560a0c0858d5cf1c.jpg

    • UlfSammySon

      Heck yeah.

    • Binret and I know each other too (re: someone asking who knows who earlier) – we watched David Duchovny dance.

      • SouthSideGeno

        ew…I woudn’t brag on that lil tidbit. The watching DD dance I mean…haha

        • We also watched him sing. In the flesh. He covered the Flaming Lips, and stole our hearts.

          • SouthSideGeno

            Loved him in X …Hated the whole C-Fornication thing.

    • Penguin in Houston

      Partay!

      • SouthSideGeno

        Is this premonition of us at the pool at the hotel on 11/18?

        • Penguin in Houston

          Too cold then

  • UlfSammySon
    • Jovi

      LOL.

    • SouthSideGeno

      I’m getting a Galaxy Note 8 in a few weeks and one of the first accessories I’m gonna grab is the VR attachment. I hope they have an ‘experience’ for ice hockey.

      I’d wager that in no longer that 10 years from now all home entertainment will be in VR.

      P.S. that guy’s a complete doucher.

      • UlfSammySon

        My buddy has the Oculus Rift for PC. It’s so much fun. Amazing

  • Jovi

    FYI – Goon has a part 2: ‘Goon: Last of the Enforcers”
    Not sure it needed a past 2

    • UlfSammySon

      WHAT?!? Jovi. Goon was awesome. I’m absolutely seeing Goon 2 this weekend.

      • Jovi

        It was good but I don’t remember it being great. Maybe I’ll watch it again sometime.

        • UlfSammySon

          Maybe WE can convince the Pens to screen Goon 1 and 2 just for us before the game. And give us free food and booze. I mean, we are bringing 23 jags to the game so it’s the least they could do.

          • Jovi

            Sure, why not. Write a letter and chuck it over Mario’s fence.

          • UlfSammySon

            I should probably tie it to a brick and aim for a window. You know, to make sure he sees it.

    Is there VR porn?
    There has to be…right?

  • lauriruu
    • SouthSideGeno

      I thought htat was ‘Paul’ …before I watched it.

      That seemed staged…right?

    • Jovi

      LOL. The things you can’t take back.

      • Ungaba

        His face was fantastic when he realized…

  • SouthSideGeno

    Is it 11/18 yet already???

  • Door_Matt

    Mr Robot S3 Sept 13th, who is ready?!

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EMK5e-FSro0

    • SouthSideGeno

      OH YEAH…gonna havt’a watch S2 again…can’t even remember what happened…I hate how long they make us wait for new seasons of shows.

      • Door_Matt

        But it’s soooooo good. I feel you, I was honestly caught off guard when they announced season 3

      • Door_Matt

        I gotta admit his sister started pissing me off during season 2.

    • lauriruu

      I am afraid to even start the second season.

      • Door_Matt

        Be very ready to forget the line between real and surreal.

        • lauriruu

          I just remember being angry at how they explained erreything at the end of the first season. Like what’s the point of watching it if they showrunners just make shit up like that…

          • Door_Matt

            That was the whole point. It’s sets the pieces for season 2. Season 2 was awesomely insane.

          • SouthSideGeno

            I think E Corp erased my memory of it…

          • Door_Matt

            EvilCorp. Phase 2 is on its way.

          • Yeah I stopped caring at the end of season one, plus it’s too cheesy for me with “evil Corp”

          • SouthSideGeno

            You hate erreystuff.

          • The only things I hate are the Greenfield Giant Eagle and Hibbits

          • SouthSideGeno

            ….and CFR?

          • Cfr never bothers me

          • SouthSideGeno

            OK…sooo you just hate erreything I say then?

            Mr. Robot is good. Watch it and simmer dahn.

          • Penguin in Houston

            Where did Hibbits go?

          • SouthSideGeno

            Hell

      • Penguin in Houston

        Finn Chicken!

        • lauriruu

          Just about the cook some Finn chicken for work. Weird.

          • Penguin in Houston

            I hid a camera last time I was there.

  • Nolongermyrealname91

    I’ll be in Nashville October 11th, wearing nothing but penguins attire. Wish me luck. Though I probably won’t need it because the bandwagon left around July

    • SouthSideGeno

      HEY BRO….I have you dahn for a room at the Holiday Inn Express on the South Side for 11/17-11/18.
      I got us a group rate of $129/night….you gonna need a place to crash…why not with us?
      Let me know if you want to reserve a room…ok?

      • Nolongermyrealname91

        I’ll let you know, I really like staying at the Extended 😉 Stay America in Robinson, the one with it’s own exit. I’ll keep you posted.

        • SouthSideGeno

          No problem…That seems so far away though. We’ll be in walking/stumbling distance of over 200 bars at this place…jussayin ; )

          I’m going to call and get the block of 10 rooms reserved tomorrow. So far I think only 4 are reserved…you still have time to decide.

          Just let me know.

    • Andy PepPep

  • Ungaba

    I just read on some website somewhere that GMJR still wants to make a deal for a third-line center as soon as possible. As of late this week, he still wasn’t especially close to making it happen. He’s been saying all summer that he won’t rush into a deal that isn’t ready, and he’s standing firm. When a trade is ready, it will be ready. It’s simply not there yet.

    • SouthSideGeno

      Jagr watch ’17?

      • Ungaba

        Well sure, but we were doing that anyway.

        • SouthSideGeno

          Meh…it prabs won’t happen…but IMO it would be a dream to get him for some 4th line minutes and maybe a PP or 30…then end his amazebalz run here in PGH

          • UlfSammySon

            Yes please

          • Penguin in Houston

            I think his ego is way too inflated to center a 4th line.

  • Ungaba

    Update from Ticket Buddy when I asked ‘is there an upper limit on how many we can get’:

    “My job is to sell tickets, so this is good. I still have options so keep selling. Keep giving me updates and I’ll tell you when we run out.”

    You heard him, Doge – invite ALL the Wet Varginians if you want! YEEEEEEE HAAAAA!!!!

    • SouthSideGeno

      hahaha…Oh Boi

      I’m calling today to book our block of 10 rooms…this whole sausage is firming up nicely, eh?
      sooooo excited

      • Ungaba

        It will be fantastic!

    • lauriruu

      Do we go to the doge family reunion before or after the game?

      • HawtDoge

        It’s this weekend in the hills outside of Johnstahn PA… no joke. It’s called “The Corn Roast”. I will go on a hay ride, yinz are all invited. To find it just follow the corn smoke and the sound of yelling and gunfire 😀

        • Third Line Center Vlad

          Corn Roast, such a hick name, lol.. I have been to a few of those in my time, corn and beer…

        • SouthSideGeno

          “We are Yinzers….bum ba bum bum….bum bum bum!”

          hahaha…sounds like big fun Doge…have a great time ; )

        • UlfSammySon

          Sounds exactly like our family reunion, which is also called the corn roast! Also involves lots of yelling and gunfire haha

    • Penguin in Houston

      Does Doge live in WV?

      • HawtDoge

        No, I doan know where the WV stuff comes from… all the cousin talk? 😀

        But she’s in that count. Oh wait… Binret +1?

        • SouthSideGeno

          Hopefully, “WE” can talk to her and get her to do the right thing….RUN AWAY!

        • lauriruu

          Binret was coming to the game but I think he had his own tickets

        • Jovi

    • SouthSideGeno

      Jagemeister was a possible…he’ll be getting back to you before next Friday.

      I see you are writing this after about 6 of em?

      • lauriruu

        We had a keg of it last weekend and I am currently drinking my third.

      • lauriruu

        Mikkeller didn’t want to put an ‘ä’ there so they used a colon instead.. I think.

        Kärlek means love FYI.

        • Ungaba

          ‘Love’ is a beer. That’s great.

          • lauriruu

            This beer is exactly that.

        • SouthSideGeno

          • Penguin in Houston

            Why I oughta!

          • SouthSideGeno

            Did you go to Pitt?

            I did

          • SouthSideGeno

            No kidding?

          • Penguin in Houston

            No, my dad did so I grew up cheering for them. I went to Baylor.

          • SouthSideGeno

            LIBERTY? Seriously….Yinz Bears lost to LIBERTY…..hahahaha

            You can talk no moar shit on my PSU Lions all season for that loss.

            You would think after the scandals both programs have been through you two would be sister schools ;P

          • Penguin in Houston

            Frk off! Lol

        • SouthSideGeno

          HA!…The Youngstown State PENGUINS (who?) took em into overtime today…we’ll see next weekend.

          • Door_Matt

            The FCS Runner-Up Youngstown State Penguins. I don’t think Pitt will win next weekend because Max Browne is a bum–swing pass and check down city against an FCS team is not a good look. They should have stuck with the QBs (DiNucci etc) they already have in their system and taken the knocks that come with it.

          • SouthSideGeno

            You’re right.

          • gutsgonebad

            That game was ridiculous. Pitt was the team that stood between our national championship last season. unreal..

          • Door_Matt

            And I’m glad we did. P-I-T-T! LETS GO PITT! We ruined your national championship dreams and beat the eventual national champs last year. This year not so much…

    Got a show tonight, but we don’t play until 1:30. Waiting to play. Waiting for hockey. Always friggin’ waiting.

    • lauriruu

      Have a kick ass gig!

  • UlfSammySon

    It’s at a few different bars/venues around the neighborhood. We played an old moose lodge that has been converted into a venue. It was fun, but I’m whooped.

    Yinz played a wedding?! Or you went to one?

    • lauriruu

      I was a guest but I was asked to play a few luvvy songs. We have met through music. We ended playing a bit more when towards the end of the party. ☺️

      We have a similar event in Hyvinkää (where I normally spend my nightlife). It’s called Kulttuuri Goes Baari (Culture Goes Bar). Like all of the bars in town take part to the event and all the performances are free.

      I’m taking a page from his book. Only slept 3 hours last night and I feel surprisingly great. I think he’s onto something…

  • Rad88

    My first full nights sleep in my new apartment, and I had a dream. I was standing at the big screen watching hockey and the crowd counted down the final 10 seconds of a game and then celebrated. As I walked out a man put his arm around me and said “can you believe it? I never thought I would live to see a team win three in a row”

    • lauriruu

      It’s a sign!
      https://youtu.be/EErSKhC0CZs
      I bet that man in your dream was Matt Murray.

      • Rad88

        I hope not, because that means he was watching the game outside of the arena which means the Niemi/Jarry show took over.

        • lauriruu

          The Lord works in mysterious ways.

    • SouthSideGeno

      HEY RADlinki….you want me to reserve a hotel room for you for the Game weekend?

  • PensPointsYourMom

    that’s mean

    I raising my Middle Fin (ger) at you for that one!

    I saw someone on the internet yesterday propose Guentzel, Maatta, and a 1st for Duchene. That’s frking crazy talk!

    Never throw your back out. You will lay on the floor screaming for hours and the dogs will come to see if you’re okay, and end up licking you in the mouth several times.

    • Andy PepPep
      • Penguin in Houston

        Cute!

    • SouthSideGeno

      Sorry to hear that. Been there, got that tee shirt.

      Get better soon. At least you have a ‘cute’ dog sled team to pull you back to civilization

      • Andy PepPep

        Thanks. I didn’t know the nerves in your back could make your ass, hips, AND legs feel like they were on fire. Have you had an epidural steroid shot? My doc is recommending one.

        • SouthSideGeno

          In my lifetime I’ve had 6.

          3 shots around my L5 & 6 and 3 shots around my C4 & 5. They work…almost immediately…it’s a miraclous relief.

          They take the immediate, unbearable pain away so you can function but the actual healing takes a looooong time. I herniated 2 discs in my neck about 2 years ago while lifting, had 3 shots, and it’s still only about 80%.

          I fell on icy concrete steps and hurt my lower back about 20 years ago, had 3 shots for that too, and it’s still pwrally only 95%. I get pain from that from time to time, depending on how I sit or from standing on hard floors too long.

          Getting hurt SUCKS.
          Good luck.

          • Andy PepPep

            Wow. Sorry to hear that. Its been an awful 9 days and I’d rather jerk off a hobo than get out of my car. Sitting > standing is the worst.

            Also, thanks to everyone in Ohio being hooked on opiates, they won’t write me a prescription for anything stronger than ibuprofen. Looking forward to that shot, though.

          • SouthSideGeno

            FRK THE OPIATES….get the shots and use alcohol and jazz lettuce.

          • Penguin in Houston

            Jazz lettuce? Weed?

          • SouthSideGeno

            Yuh…Indaga…for body pain.

          • Andy PepPep

            I wish. The electric oregano is strictly prohibited by my FAA-regulated employer. Alcohol, on the other hand….

          • PensPointsYourMom

            Luckily for you, you can jerk off a hobo without getting out of your car 😉

        • Penguin in Houston

          Didn’t know you were pregnant.

      • Third Line Center Vlad

        yea, been there as well, one of the worst things is a pinched near in the back. Hope it works itself out soon.

    • Penguin in Houston

      I hope it gets better soon.

      • Andy PepPep

        Thank you. I hope things get back to normal for you soon. I lived through Ivan (in Pensacola), and it was terrible. Nothing compared to what Houston is going through.

    • randy

      How do you *not* throw your back out? In terms of preventing it?

      • Andy PepPep

        Its impossible. My discs are bad in the lower part of my back and it eventually tore to the nerve. But good posture, strengthening exercises, and stretching can help.

        • randy

          Aww crap. Sarry to hear that.

      • Third Line Center Vlad

        seeing it was a fixed time of 7am call for actors, hard wrap at 10:45am, so we could put back what we moved by the time they opened at 11.

  • Penguin in Houston

    It’s looking like I will probably have to fly to Pittsburgh the Thursday night before the game. They want 25,000 more miles to fly in on Friday and I don’t have enough, so they want $292 more dollars for just one leg. Is that a problem?

    • SouthSideGeno

      Are you asking UNG if it will be a hotel issue? I mean fo an extra night, right?

      • Penguin in Houston

        Yes, I hate to do that. Stoopid airlines! I’m going to look again later today and see how creative I can get.

        • SouthSideGeno

          I feel ya…I bet he’ll be ok with it….butt I obvi can’t speak for him.

      • lauriruu

  • Jovi

        • SouthSideGeno

          Just signed up for AFLAC?

      • SouthSideGeno

        I saw this a while back and saved it off to my ‘future projects folder’ butt like you suggested I have no idea what the context is for this.

        Part of that problem is I’m not even really sure who’s face that is doing the Goose Stepping???

        • gutsgonebad

          From left to right pigeons, we need Horny, Geno and Sid with Schultz chugging in the background.
          Replace the face with Ryan Reeves since he’s the new big man

    • Penguin in Houston

      Now, that’s a gem!

          • SouthSideGeno

            “Very good but tree not kick back!”

        • lauriruu

          It’s called ‘beating the wood’. Valhalla… Kinda yes

          • SouthSideGeno

    So far only 4 rooms are reserved. 6 will be available until October 16th.

    Reply back to me directly …if you want to be ‘sooperkuhl’ like us and reserve a room…and not have to sleep in an alley behind a dumpster (like UNG ; )

    That is all!

    • Penguin in Houston

      Steelers AND Penguins both play on 11/16. My head will be on a swivel. Lol

      • SouthSideGeno

        I know, right. That will be a great night out in Da Burg. Have fun for us.
        I wish now that we could have made it in for Thursday night but I have to go by the flight plan Top-Fin ‘filed.’

        We’ll see you (if you can still see that is, haha) on Friday afternoon : )

        • Penguin in Houston

            Do you know what venue they’re playing at?
            What’s the name of the band?

          • Penguin in Houston

            Her text was kinda broken up. No band on 11/16! It’s 11/17 and I’ll be meating y’all! Whew! I’ll have her meat me at Silky’s in Bloomfield where she lives and a friend from the Maple Leaf now lives in Millvale.

We can repaint it black and gold and paint WWWW.pens.hockey on the side. A much better investment than the hawks/pens tickets. You owe us this.

    • Andy PepPep

      So stupid. If the goal is to get the calls right, fix the rule to make it easier to call in real time or have Toronto review all zone entries that lead to a goal. Punishing all teams because the rule has been abused a few times is so stupid, only nhl management could think it is a good idea.

      • Penguin in Houston

        Every time Sully challenges that, he wins.

        • Andy PepPep

          Let’s hope that trend continues.

      • Andy PepPep

        Only the NHL could punish a team that just wants the game to be called correctly.

    • jagrmeister

      I get the point of upping the ante like this. Basically says ‘dont challenge it unless it’s blatant’. Coaches won’t use the challenge on inconclusive stuff just to change momentum because it could hurt them. We’ll see if that’s actually how it turns out though…

      • PensPointsYourMom

        nah, they need a dedicated space to pile up severed fingers and Melnik’s ego

    • Penguin in Houston

      Wow! Losing hockey seats in Canada. Next thing, they’ll be moving to Houston.

    @ung Got the best price I could downtown for the 16th, got the WM Penn, so that’s good. Hotels are jacked up cuz Steelers play at home that night. Cheapest Marriott rate was $359, even as a member. I just don’t have any Marriott points.

    ******** MEAT UP POST UPDATE TAKE 257 ********

    Count above is 29 people. That is a prime number and, of course, is also MAF. We can all thank @moonstanley:disqus for verifying his attendance today to make this possible.

    I’m quite tempted to simply not allow any more to add on because 29 is so damn perfect, but since we are an all-inclusive and loving Blawg, the more is still the merrier.

    BUT YOU ONLY HAVE UNTIL TOMORROW, 9/8/17, TO TRULY COMMIT!!!!!

    • MoonStanley

      Holy moly, I’m #29?! What a glorious honor 😀

    • HawtDoge

      I’m still alive and still excited. One of the three major work things of the year is over. YAY!
