No it isn't and you know that. You know I want to say this is all friendly ribbing but sure doesn't feel like it.

its not friendly ribbing to me. the people that woo are by and large, simpletons. if you fit that bill--tough. the wooing is embarrassing and juvenile.

I genuinely dislike it, i'm partially joking around though. It doesn't ruin the games for me, but at the end of the game, i'm not thinking about how the Pens are about to win, i'm thinking about throat punching.

I only do it maybe once or twice when it looks like the Pens are going to win. I'm not like most of the people who do it constantly for the last 5-10 minutes of the game.

I don't really find it juvenile. People are happy that the team is going to win so they woo. Big deal, their choice, let them do it.

Matt Cooke's evil plan to disrupt the "Things Matt Cooke has done" thread is working. He knew the woo would do it.

I always struggle with my desire to stay for the last couple minutes vs. the desire to leave and spare myself from all the inconsiderate, annoying people who think it's cool. I always stay, but it's not as fun as it should be.

I wanna say it was Pensblog-related, but I can't say for sure. Them or Madden -- not sure who planted the seed and who watered it, for those of you who like silly analogies.

It was going on at the Mellon Arena.

I do not partake in it because it isn't my cup of tea, but it doesn't bother me either. It's just random noise IMO.

It definitely came from TPB, but I didn't want to bring that up, because i'm pretty sure i'm viewed as a hater of said blog.

Don't like their style, humor? I don't mind the site, but it can be hit or miss at times.

Adam and Derek have both said multiple times that they were not behind it and that they can't stand it.

This might be the only item where you can connect the dots between the two.

I used to read it a lot, but then the comment section started becoming unbearable, plus they've been half-***ing everything for the past couple years.

EDIT: Oh wow, I went over there for the first time in a long time on a whim, and holy crap, there's an ad on literally every photo in every post. Overkill much?

im not inclined to search for it because i really dont care that much, but the "woo" has long been associated with them from point one in their write-ups..for as long as i can remember.

I used to love the site, it ran its course though and they ran out of material. It was good from whenever it started to somewhere around the cup win...some time during that season, it got tired. At the rate at which they were outputting entertaining stuff they were bound to run out of material, but somehow that momentum is still carrying.
