I went to sleep last night at 1am sad.

I woke up this morning and went to fridge and got the milk.... my brother came running in the room and stared at me and I was like "what?" he just said "Iginla" and noddded his head and I knew what had happened.

**** awesome

Might be the 4 hours of sleep but I can't concentrate either. Might be a close-the-door-and-nap-at-lunch kind of day.

Let's enjoy this time as Pens fans. We will most likely not have this much cap space available for a long, long time....

Enjoy the ride...Cup or bust Disco DB...no pressure = )

This is not good for me... I have the biggest exam in my academic career in a month and two proposals to write in 3 weeks. I'm struggling right now.

Yeah, I was STUNNED this morning at 6:20 to see the news. I looked like that Caps fan from a few years back.

It must be fun to work/live in Pittsburgh this morning where you can at least talk with people about it. No one here even knows who Iginla is. :lol:

I woke up to my notification tone. Checked it and saw the news. I said "HOLY ****!" and woke my wife. I think she's still shaken up...

I'm already "playoff nervous" and I can't live like this for three months! Holy cow. What am I supposed to do? Just carry on with my day like we didn't just acquire Jarome Iginla and Brenden Morrow? I just can't do it...

Just posted this on Facebook, I can't stop thinking about it:

Jarome Iginla was selected 11th overall by the Dallas Stars in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft and was traded that same year to the Calgary Flames where he played for 15 1/2 seasons and spent 9 years as their Captain.

Brenden Morrow was drafted by the Dallas Stars 25th overall in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. He played for the Dallas Stars for 13 1/2 seasons, spending 7 of those season as their Captain.

Both of those players, being in the Western Conference battled each other season after season in the NHL. Both are physical, give all you got, hard-nosed players. Both play to win at all costs.

Today, those 2 players join forces and bring their battle to the Pens in the quest for their first Stanley Cup title! What a great day!

Glad I didn't wake up in the middle of the night to this news, as I would have gotten about an hour of sleep. Though it was cool reading my entire twitter timeline once I woke up to see all the drama unfold.

Thats exactly what I did for like 5 minutes, then realized that I only allow myself a total of about 15 minutes to go from bed to shower to car in order to get to work on time.
