november doldrums

Hello, friends.

It feels like it’s been forever since the Pens played a game. This is compounded by their last two games being out west and thus super, super late at night. I managed to stay up for the San Jose game, but that one in LA just kicked my ass.

I am also finding it difficult to maintain enthusiasm when the news of the day consists of “OMG THE PENGUINS ARE GOING TO NEMACOLIN FOR TEAM BUILDING EXERCISES.”

I am also thoroughly over the Sidney Crosby hype. Don’t get me wrong, I love watching Sid play hockey. But seriously, do I need to be updated every single day on what’s going on with him from every single media source? He’ll come back when he comes back. And it’s probably going to be sometime soon. SHUT UP ABOUT IT.

Shit, this is starting to turn into Angry Tuesday. Time to think of happier things.

Hockey 101 with @BizNasty2point0 makes me smile.


Kris Letang clocking an average of 27:01 in ice time this season makes me smile.

Two great tastes that taste great together

I hope this portends future excellence

After Dallas and Carolina this weekend, we’re playing Colorado. Seeing a matchup of my current favorite team and my previous favorite team always puts a smile on my face. Plus, you know, the Avs play like girls.

Mostly, though, I’m happy it’s Movember. I’m happy that I only have to wait a few days for more hockey, instead of a few months. The air is crisp and clear and soon it will be Thanksgiving, which is one of my favorite holidays.

Go Pens.
