Hockey Kids to Sid: Welcome Back!

While we patiently wait for tomorrow's matchup against the Rangers, John S. from Sport Chek sent in a short video for us:
We were so excited to welcome Sidney back to hockey this week; looks like you were too!

We got out the morning after he scored that great goal and had some local kids recreate it to welcome Sidney back to the game. The kids were really excited to get a chance to score that goal!
Check it out. It's too cute. "Little Sid" even nails the real Siddo's celebration - minus the swear word, of course! ;)

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Siddo is back in the lineup!

Our Captain will be playing in his first game since January 5 of this year. The Pens will be facing the Islanders. (Yeah, these Islanders...) But it should be fine - we're at home, and there weren't many shenanigans at the teams' home & home series in October.

I hope he'll make it a return to remember. :)

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meeting Sidney

Yesterday, Pens fans everywhere got a FANTASTIC bit of news: Siddo has reportedly resumed on-ice workouts an agonizing seven months after having his season cut short by a concussion. And on that happy note, I've got something else pretty cool to share with you.

Last weekend, I received an email from Friend of The Show Andrew C. who had a story he wanted to share with all of us:
I have been following the website for a long time. [snoop: Thanks, Andrew!] I am a huge fan of Pittsburgh and of course Sid. I live in Halifax and was on a field trip with my students when, who we do we see working out with his trainer?? Sidney! He was very nice. I waited until he was finished with the workout on his leg, and when he was finished, he introduced himself, answered my questions, and took a photo with me.

He is a very nice guy. I was nervous and shaking and tried to keep it in (LOL). In all of the excitement, I did not even think about asking for an autograph but thats ok [because] it was the best moment.
Here's the photo of Andrew with our Captain:

How convenient was it that Andrew had on his Aeropostale 87 shirt? ;)

Thanks SO much to Andrew for sharing his experience with all of us. :)

Free Agency Fury

What a day so far, eh? We're going to have a few new heels to hate next season. Some of the day's activities are listed below - not in chronological order, but in order of how much it upset me. (Feel free to share your feelings on the day's transactions in the Friends' Zone below.)

Starting out on the positive, as of the publication of this post, we've signed Asham a one-year extension and Kennedy to two-year extension, and we've snagged former Nashville Predator Steve Sullivan with a one-year $1.5 million deal.

Now on to the losses... Mike Rupp jumped ship to head north by joining the Rangers. We've got a lot of wingers, but Rupp was one of the best of the bunch. He played his role well, and it sucks to see him go.

Well, if he wasn't controversial enough in Pittsburgh already... Jaromir Jagr is about to find out what it really feels like to be loathed by Pens fans: Shortly after his agent claimed Jagr's "heart is in Pittsburgh" came the news that he signed a one-year deal with our cross-state rivals. (That's not exactly doing right by Mario, now is it?) To be fair, Shero had withdrawn his offer to Jagr because the ex-Pen had become the center of a bidding war of sorts. I know this left him with no other choice than to sign with another team, but why OH WHY did it have to be the freaking Flyers?

Speaking of the Flyers... the loss that stung the most was Mad Max Maxime Talbot's unexpected deal with the devil. After rejecting Shero's three year offer in June, he too is now a member of the Flyers and will be for the next five years. Apparently it was all about the Benjamins.

Talbot, I'll always be grateful for that Game 7 pair, but you are now dead to me. I don't wish you well. In fact I hope you lose, and lose a lot. That goes double for you, Jagr. I just have one thing left to say to you both: Bring on December 8.

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2010-11 NHL Coach of the Year

CONGRATULATIONS to 2010-11's NHL Coach of the Year, Dan Bylsma!!!

After coaching our Boys to the playoffs despite the multitude of injuries and the loss of the services of the world's best player, I'd say this is an honor well deserved. :)

Siddo Sighting

Les Pingouins sont en vacances à Cannes, en France!

Paul Martin, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, our title man, and Jordan Staal

En anglais that is, the Penguins are vacationing in Cannes, France!

Michael Saylor, le capitaine, Boula Duval, and Staal

Well... at least four of them are: Siddo, Max Talbot, Paul Martin, and Jordan Staal partied with former Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler, director Boula Duval, and entrepreneur Michael Saylor (among many others) at the "Trophy Wife" short film screening and after-party during the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival aboard the Jettee Albert Edouard yacht last night.

Check out the entire photo album here.

But I wanted to make sure you got a load of Mad Max's fantastic suit jacket:

I ♥ his style! BTW, wouldn't they make an adorable couple? ;)

Switching gears now: Something pretty cool happened to us a few weeks ago. The folks at MLX recently contacted me and offered to send me a pair of skates to test, review, and keep. But alas, because of my past foot problems and resulting surgeries, I cannot skate. Yet, when I told them this, they were nice enough to offer the skates to woodstock for a test drive! :D Once he receives the skates and uses them for a bit, he's going to let you know what he thinks of them, so keep an eye out for his very first guest blogger post about the skates in the coming weeks. Check out the skates for yourself here: Hockey Ice Skates. I'm going to put that link in the blogroll, which I'm revamping and simplifying as a summer project.

I hope wherever you are, you're having better weather than we are. Until next time, Friends! :)
