DeSmith and Jarry have both been pretty good this year. I'm not too worried about it. Still more than a month until the playoffs start.

You're an idiot.

StubHub will always have tickets but games are sold out for the most part

Amazing comedian Anthony Jeselnik (one of the headliners this year) just crashed a show I was at and asked about the World Cup. He was pretty into it, though he's from the US (Pittsburgh). He thanked us for Kessel to my solo standing ovation.

Yup... I bit the bullet and grabbed a pair at $499 + 85 in fees... which is way too much money in $CAD... but now that it's the potential clincher, and the market has the cheapest tickets priced at more than double that... I'm feeling good about my decision.

Leaving Toronto at 8:35 tomorrow morning.

Having trouble deciding which jerseys to bring, and also plan on buying a Kessel jersey while I'm there. :)

Thinking I'll stick with my 1999 Jagr jersey until I get the Kessel.

I was dealing blackjack and had a few guys at my table that looked vaguely familiar. They were all bearded, friendly, and one had a cut on his eyebrow. 2 of them played at my table for a while, and I paid attention to things they said, like how they played at this one casino in St Louis. I casually asked where they were from - they replied California. I said, "Ah - here for the game? Good luck, but not TOO much, of course..." They laughed, and kept playing. They later mentioned something about Minnesota, and showed disdain for the casino chips that had the Pens logo on them. As they colored up, I finally asked, "Just gotta ask - you guys are Sharks, right?" The one guy laughed, said yeah, so I wished them luck. Seemed cool enough, although they didn't tip. Apparently it was Martin Jones and I think the other guy was Nieto. It was tough to compare the mental image with the beard-less roster photo on my break.
they didn't tip? Well now that's just bad karma.... :)

They practiced at Consol yesterday because the team Christmas party/family skate was after. But the Lemieux Complex is really great. They let fans in to watch practice on most days, and there is a full Pens Gear store there as well. Really nice.

If you find yourself back in Cranberry, check out the Lemieux sports complex there. I'm not sure about their schedule, but I know they practice there sometimes. Supposedly there are 2 full sized ice rinks inside - you can see it on 79 as you drive past.
They only practice at Consol or UPMC Lemieiux now. Their usually practice time is 11 am, although it does vary slightly. And the Lemieux centre is ALWAYS open to the public to watch practice. Nice stands, with seats inside and outside. Also a Pensgear store in the practice facility. One of the best parts is that the Pens management team is always around, and they're pretty impressive. I was sitting in the little cafe one day eating, and Bill Guerin, Mark Recchi, Jacques Martin, and Gary Roberts all came and sat at my table. The fans that go to practice are so used to it they don't bother them at all.
Oh, and all the players including Mario live up by the practice rink. Mario, Sid and geno are in Sewickly, Letang and Fleury are in Wexford, Phil is in Wexford. Worth the drive to see Mario's house. Sweet Jeebus...

Weird that Brodeur is retiring and joining the BLUES front office..Not the Devils..
The Devils are his wife. The Blues are his sister in law.

Reminds me to much of one of the Islander jerseys

It shouldn't. It should remind you of the 1990s Pens jerseys, since they're identical.

I like it, but I don't really care all that much. The biggest problem with these jerseys is that I will no longer be able to tell who the idiot fans are that bought Crosby jerseys in this style from before he ever actually wore one.

Could you imagine a day where Serge and I argue about Ovechkin and I'm the one on Ovie's side?
