Taylor Swift Curse

Postby IanMoran on Wed Jul 03, 2013 5:10 pm

I know I'm the one bringing it up by talking about it now, but anyone else getting annoyed by hearing / seeing this?

That was in 2009. 37 players played for the Pens that year... Only 9 still remain (Sid, Geno, Kunitz, Dupuis, Letang, Orpik, MAF, DJ, Engo). How is it a "shock" / "curse" that 4 random guys are gone. (Especially when none of them were top 6 f or top 4 d)

She will be in Pittsburgh over the weekend; as if we needed the extra sweetness.

She would look so sexy in a Niskanen jersey.

it was because the Swift Curse originally started in early 2011 (less than a year and a half after her appearance at Mellon) after Goligoski was trade for Neal and Niskanen. A few months later, Talbot signed with the Flyers.

I got the joke when it was still in a 2 year window, but 4 years later is a bit much.

On some weird level this is creepy.

I am going to assume there is a possibility if it was a player you disapproved of she would look less sexy??

From some of her tweets over the weekend, I would guess Katie O'Malley won't be doing Penguins radio tomorrow morning. Another victim!!

I can simply answer this. The dj's Mikey and Big Bob the people who mentioned said topic and picture aren't talented.

That is all...

She is pretty unattractive. By any standards, whether it be hollywood, Pittsburgh, Butler, the hills have eyes, food camp...whatever. Just a weird looking creature.

I'd say she falls between both of you. Not stunning by any means, but with proper light refraction to the face, she's not too bad.

Oh, my argument is from a purely celebrity standpoint. She's just not as hot as everyone makes her out to be.

I think I made it clear that it was not from a celebrity standpoint for me. I don't think she is attractive at all. Strange looking though, sure.
