Only One More Day

by Anne

Thank jeebus there's only 1 more day til the Finals.

I've been immersing myself in articles about various Pittsburgh Penguins and the team as a whole. I read an article in Sports Illustrated yesterday about how crappily the team was run just a few years ago. They used to eat pizza and chicken fingers on plane rides after games. You've gotta be kidding me. I enjoys me some of that finer cuisine, but if I were a professional athlete who had just sweat my buns off for 3 hours, I don't think I'd want 3 pounds of cheese and grease in my belly while sitting on a plane. No thanks. None of these articles address "AGE v. EXPERIENCE: THE BATTLE TO THE END", as many articles seem to. Its an age old question that, I'm sorry to say WILL NOT BE ANSWERED BY THIS SERIES. You can never 100% prove if its better to have a more experienced mind or a younger pair of legs. There are so many more factors involved that just zeroing in on age is a waste of time.

In today's installment of "Learning to Love the Pittsburgh Penguins:

Maxime Talbot is hilarious, at one point he makes fun of Jordan Staal. I miss Colby Armstrong. :(


Oh Maxime:

TORONTO - DECEMBER 1: Maxime Talbot #25 of the Pittsburgh Penguins walks to the ice wearing teammate Sidney Crosby's jersey for a practical joke, as the Penguins had an open practice for the fans before facing the Toronto Maple Leafs during their NHL game at the Air Canada Centre December 1, 2007 in Toronto, Ontario.

Tee he he.

Only 1 more day before the Finals!! WOOOOO!!!!

Happy Birthday Gary Roberts!!! Givin' Chelios a run for his money! Wooo!


  1. "Maxime Talbot is hilarious, at one point he makes fun of Jordan Staal. I miss Colby Armstrong. :("

    AHHHH! I absolutely love love love that you said that! I agree. I love watching countless videos of Army and the Pens. The Sabres need to be more open and crazy like that.

  2. Seriously, I wish the Sabres would do more things like that. All the Sabres seem really boring in comparison to some other teams. I'm sure they have more personality than that.

  3. That video is made of awesome. I miss Colby more than words can say.

    But our boys can be fun like that too! Have you guys seen the "Sexyback" videos from Channel 2 last year?
