Shouldn't you be busy figuring out what side of your mouth you're talking out of? Last year, you guys called him a no talent goon, now you can't wipe the jizz off your face fast enough to hide your glee.


I have never called Asham a no-talent goon, much as I have never called Taillon a left-handed pitcher. Don't make shit up...you have enough problems with what actually happens.

I think I may have said something about Asham at one point, perhaps after the Matt Cooke incident. But he was a Flyer. Now he's not. That's the way sports works.

Exactly. Cooke's a good example, actually...I'd hate that guy if he played for anyone else.

Pjoma must be new to sports.

I think just about everyone here would cheer for Ray Lewis if he played for the Steelers. Just like you'd touch yourself to have Sidney Crosby on the Flyers.



BTW one of the guys on the Fan, I think it was Fillipponi did a show on this a couple weeks ago. I would say about 90% of the callers said they wouldn't. Combined with the callers that were ready to kill Fillipponi for mentioning Lambert and Lewis in the same sentence.

so yeah, some people are stupid.

If Cindy became a Flyer, I would end my 40 year following of the team until he was gone. ...


Wow. That's absurde.

Getting back to the game, Ohlund will play tonight but be limited. Clark is a game time decision. Gagne and Moore are out.

Wait, you don't stop following your baseball team after they suck for 18 consecutive years to historic levels, but should your hockey team ever acquire one of the best players in the game, you do?

That makes sense.


I've never hated the Penguins for 40 years. In fact, when Mario wasn't playing the Flyers, I rooted for him. I even like the players they've swapped over their long history and always root for the Flyers players that landed in Pittsburgh. I even root for the Pens in the Cup. That said, there isn't a player that I hate more than Cindy. Mario was the man and had my fullest respect as a player that would play the game any way you wanted to play it against him. I still consider him the greatest two way player of my generation. I can't say that about Cindy. To me, it's worse than the hatred we all hold for Ray Lewis. I could never root for Crosby on my team.

so sorta game related... I misread the paper on Monday and thought the game was Monday night so I wore a Pens polo to work. So of course now that there's a game I don't have that option. Instead I'm wearing a Pirates polo shirt. I figure it's sorta in honor of the World Series tarting tonight and the Pirates watching from afar as usual.

And yet, he has a cup and Mike Richards has...

Nothing.

What exactly is it about him you hate? The fact that he works as hard or harder than anyone in the NHL? The fact that he's willing to go in to the dirty areas that most superstars stay away from? The fact that he'll lay down and put his face in front of a shot?

Has to be one of those.

Pay attention. He's a whiner.

Not something a good leader does.

Like when Richards would hide in the showers after games last year and let Pronger take the questions? That's true leadership.

You're going on the assumption that I'm a big fan of Mike Richards. He's missing something besides a Cup and that's the heart it takes to spill your guts on the ice to win one. I felt the same about Eric Lindros. Give me two Bobby Clarke's over Richards and Lindros any day.

And yet there's hate for "Cindy" Crosby who tried to return to a Cup final game on an injured knee. Pretty sure that qualifies as heart and spilling your guts. (but I'm sure he was just faking it)

For the most media scrutinized player in NHL history, I think he's done alright.

No you wouldn't. You'd slurp his nuts and love him. Just like every person here would love Alex Ovechkin if he were a Penguin.



I already love him:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_dadd...?urn=nhl-279642

(UPDATE: The full GQ piece is here in all its Ovechkin on the prowl/making out with multiple ladies splendor.)

It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So when the beholder is Alex Ovechkin(notes) of the Washington Capitals and his eyes are fixated on someone who looks like this, it's understandable that 99 percent of the other women on the face of the Earth may not measure up to his specifications.

Perhaps, then, the good and decent ladies of the greater Washington D.C. area and other NHL ports of call shouldn't fret over Ovie's latest bit of candor in the new issue of GQ (the one with the scandalous photos with the cast of "Glee" inside), in which he places Russian women on a pedestal and American women on a scale.

From Russian Machine Never Breaks, which had several excerpts from Michael Idov's reporting from Russia:

If Ovechkin's exploits don't reach American tabloids, perhaps that's because he's simply not into American girls. "If you compare Russia and America," he explains sagely, "they are two different worlds. People, cars, clothes. Girls' figures. Especially girls' figures. Why do you think that is, that when an American goes to Russia for a week, he stays for two extra weeks? Girls! And when a Russian goes to America for a week, he leaves in five days. I'm serious! There's a statistic! [RMNB Ed Note: I'm dubious.] Ask any American about Russia. You know what they'll say."

The conversation ends abruptly. Ovechkin's dangerous-looking friend Magomet, whom Alex has been texting throughout our talk (he texts nonstop, with prodigious smileys), has rolled up in an Audi SUV painted a scabrous matte black. For a while, we cruise down Tverskaya. Each time he sees a pretty girl walking by, Ovechkin shouts "BOOM!" at the top of his lungs.

Clearly we've been doing this all wrong: Here we thought women like smiles and compliments, but evidently Ovie's way to a women's heart is by driving past her and sounding like the blasting zone at a rock quarry.

Now, Ovechkin isn't the first Russian-born NHL player to wish they all could be Krasnoyarsk girls; hell, he's not even the first Washington Capitals player. Please recall goalie Semyon Varlamov's(notes) interview with OK! Magazine last year, in which he said the following:

Have any personal admirers emerged?

"I have a true love, so I don't look at any other women. You know, I'm extremely fortunate that I met a Russian girl in America. It's difficult to look at a lot of the local women. You get the feeling that just don't take care of themselves! There are an awful lot of heavyset ones. But Russian girls have nice trim figures. I couldn't imagine myself being with an American girl."

In fairness, American girls couldn't imagine seeing Varlamov finish a postseason without self-destructing like a Russian spy satellite reentering the atmosphere, so they're even.

Meanwhile, we eagerly await the chance to look back on this post when Ovechkin inevitably meets and marries an American girl. After all it was a great big world, with lots of places to run to. And if she had to die tryin', she had one little promise she was gonna keep ...

Good point; there hasn't been any precedent there before. These are all gutsy airquote.gif performances airquote.gif .









Crosby can't hold Mario's jock when it comes to heart and guts.

So he tries to draw penalties to help his team win. I sure as hell hate it when guys are fierce competitors. Really grinds my gears.

I don't give a rat's ass about Pjoma's opinion of Crosby. But I am enjoying how he's claiming he would no longer be a Flyer's fan should they acquire him while sucking the balls of such awesome players like Brandon Moss, Aki Iwamura, Steve Lerud, and Daniel McCutchen.

"The Bay trade doesn't look like it (a slam dunk winner), but if you take into account the fact that all they lost was eight months of Jason Bay's services, as well as the fact that even the Red Sox look like they won't be able to re-sign him, it's not nearly the loser many people seem to think." - tWTM 11/26/2009

"Morton is finding himself, now while this may sound weird and out there, but the fact he put on a solo concert at Piratefest shows he finally has the confidence that he lacked within himself that he didn't have in the lower minors." - aso513 2/8/2010

"Dave Littlefield vindicated." - Xiga 4/30/2011 after one scoreless inning of relief by Daniel Moskos.
