Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

Fantastic. That game was so fun to watch. We did everything right, everyone looked sharp, Phil Simms wasn’t an idiot, etc. No more sarcasm from me. I promise. Now, I’m always excited for Steelers games, and never want to see the team lose. However, with the playoffs a week away and many a key starter […]

This Picture Better Not Foreshadow

With the Winter Classic coming up real quick, I wanted to see who on the Penguins or Sabres has experience playing outdoor games. A Trib article gave me the answers. Both Adam Hall of the Pens and Ryan Miller of the Sabres played for Michigan State in the Cold War of 2001 against Michigan. Two […]

Attention Pensblog Readers

PSaMP is not…I repeat, NOT, the site that’s going to help you get tickets to the Winter Classic. Figured I’d make that easy for you. However, Pensblog has been a solid friend of PSaMP. Here’s some entertaining stuff they wrote for PSaMP a while back, if you’re interested. – PSaMP’s Halfie Birthday Extravaganza: The Pensblog– […]

Ben Roethlisberger = Offensive Player of the Week: Part 2

For the second time this season, Ben Roethlisberger has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. He also received the award in mid-November. I struggled to find words to describe the feat last time, so I’ll just lay his stats out for you to see this time. 16 of 20 for 261 yards, 3 […]

Playoff Personnel Looking Bleak

How was your Christmas? I hope this picture made you upchuck everything you were able to hold down the past two days. You can thank Nice Pick Cowher for the image. In case you forget, the Steelers are in the playoffs. Thanks again, Cleveland. Since San Diego won on Monday night, we can only jockey […]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! Well, its actually Christmas Eve, but I’m leaving this post up for today and tomorrow, in case I don’t see you. I hope your holiday rules. And I hope you don’t get assaulted by creepy Penguins Santa. Have fun.

Georges Laraque Is Not Chris Thorburn

Here’s a screen grab from round 1 of Laraque/Chara in the Penguins’ shootout win over the Sabres several nights ago. Georges Laraque > Chris Thorburn. Sorry that this is so late. I suck. That was not the Tale of the Tape. FSN is a liar.

Pittsburgh Rules

I already told you that the Steelers won. Also, despite blowing a 4-goal lead (damn you, Ty Conklin), the Penguins won. And Pitt beat Duke. At Madison Square Garden. Video of Levance “Don’t Tase Me, Bro” Fields hitting the winning 3 in overtime is provided above. Solid night.

Ouch. Uncool win. Sure, we won, but losing Willie Parker for the season really hurts. Tons of love goes to Najeh for holding it down last night, but Willie broke his leg? I’m sick for the guy. The D let up way too many points again, but held when they had to, allowing the O […]

Bryant McFadden Rules

My aunt sent this picture message to my phone yesterday. I am in awe. All she said was: i just met mcfadden 20. She also emailed my mom today to let her know. Here is what she said (ignore the grammar): How about me running into Mcfadden of the Steeler last night……. he not a […]

Silverback To Start Pro Bowl, Steelers Still 0-2 In Last 2 Games

Props to James Harrison for being selected to start the Pro Bowl in his first season as Joey Porter’s replacement. Its a far cry from earlier in the season, when we wondered if Silverback could finish the season after being taken off the field on a stretcher (above). Big Ben, Fast Bill, Troy and Alan […]

Paul Holmgren Is A Joke

I happened across an article the other day at Delaware Online, the website for the Wilmington News Journal. Wilmington is a suburb of Philly, and the article talked about the massive contract given to the still-unproven Mike Richards. The title: Richards’ Deal Forces Flyers To Get Creative. He gambled that Richards, who missed 23 games […]

What’s In A Name?

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve shortened my name at the end of each post. So long tecmo_bowl_bo_jackson. Hello, Tecmo. This is just for streamlined purposes. I loved (and will continue to love) Bo Jackson (see here, when I used to write sans caps). Tecmo is much easier to say. And it is without underscores. […]

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

I kinda remember saying something along the lines of “9-5 would suck.” Well…as it turns out…this sucks. Jags win. I’m trying to figure out what sucked more…losing big in New England or losing a damn near winnable game at home. The sting hurts either way. Tale of the tape: Awful play by both the D […]
