Fail R’ Us
June 5, 2008 | Filed in: Uncategorized

As much as I’ve realized I really am pulling away from the Pens fanboat, it still sucks to see people you’ve followed for a season sprawled all over the ice after a loss like that. Sorry, guys. I’d say ‘Next year’ but I’m more of a realist, as they’re going to lose a good handful of the little tangential guys who helped them get there this year, and while that may not entirely cripple them, I’m sure it’s probably not going to help.

What I’m hearing now is that if Orpik walks as a UFA, Goligoski’s probably going to be the choice to replace him, and for as big a pain in the ass as Goligoski was for the Bears all season, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get behind him 100%. It’s just sort of driving home the gnawing feeling that the Pens were more the vehicle to find me Armstrong and Orpik, and less the team that I’m going to live and die for for the rest of my life. Because obviously… I’m not dying as much as I should be right now, that’s for sure.

The other thing I’m hearing at this point?
Joe freaking Motzko is only the inadvertently luckiest person on the planet. Goddammit, Motzko. Someday your luck will run out and all your teeth will rot out of your head in a freak free candy accident or something. Quit doing this, it cheapens it.
