Your 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins

Friday, June 12, 2009

It's no secret that I despise the Pittsburgh Penguins, but they played one of the best road "Game Sevens" that has ever been executed. Add to that one of the most ridiculous seasons ever, and you have what dreams are made of. Enjoy it, Pennsylvania....

One of these days, a team that doesn't thoroughly disgust me will win one of major sports championships. Sadly, it doesn't look like it will happen any time soon.

"Enjoy it Pennsylvania"

Eh, this Philadelphia fan is not enjoying this one at all. Crosby has a Stanley Cup now.....good God, I'm in hell.

Yeah, what's up with the "enjoy it, Pennsylvania?" line?

Way to show your ignorance. Try "enjoy it, PITTSBURGH." The triumphs of our various teams (Pitt basketball's #1 rankings and run in the NCAA, Steelers, Pens) belong to our glorious city alone. The mouthbreathing drug-addicted wife-beating thugs over in Philly have their own pathetic teams to root for.

So for future reference, Pittsburgh and only Pittsburgh is the City Of Champions. K?

FIXED RIGGED SCRIPTED

The Red Wings had to beat the refs too, all the questionable calls went the Flightless Fowl's way.
Commence Canadian media slobbering.
Saint Cindy of the Confluence has a Cup. That should make Don Cherry happy, since Saint Cindy is a good Canadian boy.

Where the NBA thinks your leagues refs decided the series/game happens.

Where the league office gives their star a Championship even though he got hurt (bruised ovary) and barely played, but will have "lead his team to a championship" happens

Where a goal in game 7 is scored off a non-called icing happens.

Where the league office charges an owner $300M in fees to move a team he owns happens.

Where the reason your league is on Versus happens.

Good Job Hockey

I seemed to have missed the call on the cheating Wing who decked Fleury and shoved him to the ice.

It didn't matter though, the classes shitbags here in Michigan can suck it.

Maybe the nice little city can get revenge when the Stillers come to Ford Field.

LOL...suck on it Hockeytown, you loudmouth assholes. It's what you idiots get when you predict a fucking sweep and four cups in seven years.

Can anyone in sports, or maybe the world, feel as fucking stupid as the Wings management and Hossa?

Unreal.

To Chip:

Us Philadelphians (MLB World F'ing Champions 2008; also home of the Villanova Wildcats -- you know, the team that knocked your sorry, overrated Pitt team out of the NCAAs) don't like being associated with you yinzer, one small step above West Virginian, bandwagon Pens fans either, "K"? Bret Hart said it best -- If you were to give the US an enema, Pittsburgh is where you would stick the hose.

Gotta love the Pens' blueprint to a championship -- be so bad for so long that you almost have to move out of the city due to lack of fan support, then have a top two pick in four straight drafts (which, how terrible do you have to be for that to happen?) and watch all the bandwagon Pissburgh joke fans scurry back like the cockroaches they are as the team becomes relevant again. Wow -- what a deserved championship. The NHL has officially jumped the shark.

Um.....Chip, you have every right to brag about winning Stanley Cup and the Super Bowl if you want to and bash needlessly bash Philadelphia for it, but Pitt basketball?? Seriously??? Didn't a Philadelphia basketball team knock that #1 rated Pitt team out of the tournament last year? And if you're suffering from that selective memory that seems to be a pandemic in Pittsburgh, let this video remind you of what happened.

Go ahead and brag and bash Philadelphia all you want. The Steelers won the Super Bowl and the Eagles did not. The Pens beat the Flyers on the way to the Stanley Cup. But by bringing up a team Pitt team that lost to a Philly team this year while bashing Philly, you're only making a complete fool out of yourself

OK, a few things:

First, to Andrew Chiappazzi- to say that the officiating was fair proves you are a moron or know nothing about hockey. It clearly favored the Penguins (one easy example being the first goal which should have never happened because it was an icing that wasn't called). Also, Franzen's hit was fine, if any penalty was going to be called it should have been on CRYsby for holding as he rode the back of Franzen for 10 feet.

Next to hollywood fags, i mean wags- first, don't ever type LOL you fucking faggot. second, it would have been 3 cups in 7 years but thanks for adding another one on, they'll get it next year for 3 in 8. Also, why the HELL should Wings management feel stupid, may I ask?? Because they assembled the most talented team in hockey? Because they can continue to draft players like Datsyuk and Franzen in late rounds of the draft? Because they can re-sign their stars and keep good teams together? Or is it because they can take one of the best players on a team that made it to the Stanley Cup finals and convince him to take less money to sign with the Wings? Yeah, they should feel really dumb.

Finally, Sidney CRYsby is the biggest bitch in the world and did not deserve to touch the Cup. Youre really gonna sit out half of a GAME 7 of the STANLEY CUP FINALS you scrub?!?!?!?!? And good job showing class at the end of the game by not shaking 3/4ths of the Wings hands. What was the problem Sid? Too busy celebrating with your teammates that did all the work for you?

I've been told that they'll be handing out tin foil hats for any Red Wings fans that come attend the Pens' Stanley Cup victory parade. There are still a few left over from what we sent to Philadelphia and Washington. There will also be plenty of cheese to go with the whine you'd no doubt be bringing in abundance.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a more classless bunch of losers in my entire life. You're really giving Canadiens and Yankees fans a real run for their money in the "largest and most arrogant sense of entitlement" department.

But hey, if the Red Wings could dictate play as well as they can dictate how the other team celebrates, they wouldn't have this problem, would they?

I've never seen a more classless faggot captain in my entire life. It's one of the biggest traditions in hockey, and something everyone (well, except CRYSby apparently), yet he didn't do it. No respect and no class, he's just a punk little scrub.

The Wings will be back, they have talent up and down their roster, unlike the Penguins that only have 2, maybe 3 players that have any semblance of skill.

Joe D said...
Jun 14, 2009, 11:43:00 AM  

Joe D, were we watching the same series?! You say the Pens only have 2 or 3 players with skill . . . I'm pretty sure that the Detroit defense shut down Crosby, Malkin and Stall in the Championship series YET the Pens came out on top because the other talent stepped up.

As for all of your Crosby haters, the kid is 21 years old – he’ll grow up, you should look into doing the same.

"Next to hollywood fags, i mean wags- first, don't ever type LOL you fucking faggot."

The Pittsburgh penguins, your 2009 Stanley Cup Champions.

And I love Detroit, the best hoecky fans on earth, Hockeytown...boo the presentation of Stanley Cup.

But you guys are so great, you tell us all the time.

Pittsburgh is the City of Champions, and is also now Hockeytown.

Maybe Datsy could have stopped pirouetting like some dancer and do something other than have the puck taken away from him over and over.

The Wings suck, over-rated.

The Pittsburgh Penguins, your 2009 Stanley Cup Champs, won a game 7 ON THE ROAD, IN HOCKEYTOWN.

LOL

Joe, I have a short movie for ya that sums up how a lot of people feel about what happened to Detroit in these finals, hard fought games by the Wings, they gave it their all.

I am so sorry that this had to happen to you Joe, I know that in Detroit, all you guys have is hockey. Maybe the Lions can beat up on the Stillers this year.

Anyway, enjoy.

The Cup

Detroit was lucky the whole playoffs- they barely get by Anaheim, avoided the Sharks, avoided Kronwall getting suspended for that gutless cheapshot on Havlat, and got all those lucky bounces in games 1 and 2 of the Finals.

Get over it, Detroit and Philly fans- Pittsburgh won the Cup. Detroit CHOKED!

Chris Kreager said...
Jun 14, 2009, 6:31:00 PM  

Ummm, even scrub, no-talent players can score a goal once in a while. The Penguins won, I'll acknowledge that, it doesn't take away from the fact that Detroit is far more talented. You mean to tell me people like Max Talbot or Tyler Kennedy have talent? And Hal Gill is the biggest stiff I have ever seen on skates.

Ok, and hollywood fags, SHITsburgh is not and never will be Hockeytown. Congrats on your third Cup, the Wings have four in the past 12 years.

And they weren't booing the Cup you moron, they were booing Gary Bettman, anyone with half a brain could have figured that out.

Oh, and Datsyuk was injured, only he wasn't a bitch like CRYSby and played through his pain, even with hack Penguins taking cheap shots at him.

Joe D said...
Jun 14, 2009, 8:53:00 PM  

OK, just noticed this too, but Chris Kreager I sincerely hope you are not serious about the Kronwall hit.

You obviously are a complete moron or you know nothing about hockey what so ever (or both). That play did not even deserve a penalty let alone Kronwall getting thrown out. Why do you think all the announcers and commentators defended Kronwall and didn't think it was a good call? Why do you think he wasn't supsended???? Because it was a clean hit.

He didn't use his elbow. He didn't leave his feet. The puck was right there, it is not his fault Havlat could not handle the pass and needs to stare right at the puck in order to catch a pass. Tell him to keep his head up next time.

Joe D said...
Jun 14, 2009, 8:57:00 PM  

CHOKED.

Pens won game 7 away, at the Joe, in the almighty Hockeytown, with "Cindy" hurt.

LOL

OK, way to not respond to any of my statements that took apart your idiotic points. That's because you're a moron and I'm obviously right and you make no sense.

I really, really hope they meet again next year and Detroit is actually healthy. Because we all know Pittsburgh can't beat the Wings if they are at full strength (and even when they weren't healthy it still took SHITsburgh 7 games).

"Enjoy it Pennsylvania, eh?" That's like telling Chiefs fans to be happy if the Rams win the Super Bowl. They're both in Missouri, right?

so i realize this is old news now, but i just read this entire thread and I have to ask...Brad James, are you fucking retarded? not only was what you wrote borderline gibberish, but if i had to guess you're probably a high school dropout unable to formulate a complete thought if your life depended on it. you should at least look into spellcheck so you don't sound like a complete dumbass. come on, " more prettyier"? really...

but to all you pens fans out there, let's be real...you cant say shit about the red wings franchise. no team manages their farm teams, develops players, or drafts better than the red wings. and before you say the pens are better because they drafted crosby, any moron can make a first round pick. its the late rounds where a team is built. how many stars have the wings drafted in late rounds over the years? quite a few...

also, i think it was evident the penguins were embellishing to a ridiculous degree...begging for calls. its classless hockey. you want proof, you can youtube crosby diving and probably get 50 different clips of it. you'd think he was shot by the way he reacts to a stick tap. and on top of that, he's the biggest whiner in the league after the whistle. thats not only my personal opinion but also one of most NHL players. why do you think he was voted biggest whiner by the league?

finally, the number of penalties in the finals isn't the only thing to look at. i'm not refuting any facts that the penguins didn't have more penalties than the red wings in the finals. what i'm simply noting is that there were many interference, hooking, and holding calls that weren't called. so not only were the wings getting held up, but they weren't getting the power play time they should have. makes the game seem a little unfair to me. had it been the other way around-though it never will as long as Crosby is still the poster boy of the league and worshiped by Bettman-you'd be pissed.

So enjoy the cup for now, knowing deep down that you don't completely deserve it.
