NOTE: This streak is years in the making, not just this season!!
Yes folks after posting that I would NOT attend tonights game I figured I would throw the team a curveball and sneak into section d-24 and enjoy a win. It has been SO LONG that I am no longer a fan, I am a zombie. Yes I have become the walking dead and I sometimes revisit the places I USE TO enjoy when I was among the living. The nachos taste the same, but the reason for being there has changed dramatically.
For me the highlight of the game was the opening scratches. When I heard the names Sturm and Gonchar I dared to dream a tiny dream inside my head. In this dream a trade was being bartered between Patrick and the Bruins GM. Patrick stood up and boldly stated,"we arent giving you Christensen but I WILL conceed Surovy to accompany Gonchar for Sturm. Another drink sir? Yes drink up....nothing to fear from this delicious beverage...." When I came to my senses I noticed the Pens had 0 shots on goal but I missed half of the first period.
The guys in front of me were very gay yinzers. Alot of chriping about how great the team use to be and how cool their mullets were like 25 years ago when the were kissing their cousins. Sad that the game was even more lame than that.
Jackman is the only blueliner that knows how to hit someone IN STRIDE. Not behind them, not in their feet, but just out in front enough to get the skates going before catching it. Fleruy is tremendous and whatever contract he gets next season it wont be enough in my opinion. Whitney is trying but there is just no fire or urgency in his game. The stick is too long for the kid too, he cannot use the reach with any quickness, will somebody PLEASE COACH HIM??
