Props to Joe Y. over at ProHockeyTalk for catching wind of the Islanders' viewing party and putting up a piece about it.
Bizarre comment of the day from that PHT post:
Apparently we are an unbalanced source of "hockey reporting."
A site whose sole focus is one hockey team is unbalanced?
No clue how anyone could come to that conclusion.
For the record, we're always in a planning stage of doing "that" later.
So, sometime Friday night, news started spreading that there is an #IslesMeetup scheduled for Friday, August 19th. The purpose of this meetup is for Isles fans to go to a bar and j.o. while they watch the Pens-Isles game from 2/11. Yes, that one.
Now, this kind of viewing-party idea is kind of cool in general. And we'd actual tip our hats to the Isles organization for using social media to bring fans closer if it wasn't to celebrate lunacy. If they're gonna circle-jerk to a run-of-the-mill 9-3 drubbing, we'd be all for it and not dip our toe into the water.
But celebrating the blatant attempts to injure in this game isn't gonna fly.
And for the Islanders to be promoting it right on their website is beyond words.
Brent Johnson kicked enough ass last year that he allowed himself a new paint job for his mask.
If you've followed the Pens longer than 4 minutes, you knew it was gonna have a Led Zeppelin theme.
Beej and artist David Arrigo decided to make their own Zeppelin album cover for this mask.
Go tell Arrigo he's a beast in his comments section.
