  2. If it were up to me, I'd have Doc Emrick at every game. For the more we see of him, the less we see of the awful Joe Beninati. Believe me, the only thing worse than seeing the Pens beat my Flyers in 5 in last year's conference finals was having Joe Beninati call it.

  3. "He's an old guy now. He just turned 21." - Doc Emrick on Simeon VarLAMov.

  5. Wow, the Capitals restricted ticket sales to just those who live in the D.C. area??? That's real douche bag move, if I don't say so myself.

  6. Capitals way of selling playoff tickets > Pistons way of selling playoff tickets.

  7. Another great save by VarLAMov.

  8. That was certainly an awkward interview...

  9. they have to sell tickets to a Pittsburgh series that way...otherwise it would be a 50-50 split in the arena

  10. 1-0 Pens, great job by the Caps killing that 5 on 3.

    ReplyDelete
  11. So??? Let it be a 50-50 split. Caps fans have every opportunity to buy those tickets and every opportunity for revenge to flock to Pittsburgh and take tickets from those fans.

    Bottom line: It's a douche bag move to restrict tickets to a certain area. And it also says more about that franchise, ownership, and trust in their fans than any words can.

  12. you know, i agree with most of what you say. but i also think ownership has the right to make sure the home team has as great an advantage as possible. besides,its not like there are 6000 empty seats tonight, they just want the Caps fans who want to go to have the first chance to get seats.

  14. If I hear Alexander Ovechkin called "Alexander the Great" or LeBron James called "King James" one more time, I might break by TV set.

  21. Bob Cole is really tragic. He's all over the place tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @ SSR: Did you get that email I sent you about Bob Cole's call of the great VarLAMov save? Tragic, indeed.

    ReplyDelete
