Joe Louis Arena
Weren't we just here?
Penguins and Red Wings.
There really isn't much else to say at this point.
The last time these two teams walked into this arena for a game against one another, the Stanley Cup was in attendance.
Tonight will be different.
Tonight's game will not match the intensity of game seven in the Stanley Cup Final.
It would be pretty hard to match that, especially in the preseason.
Bing will likely be a game time decision.
One looks like he's suffering from constipation and diarrhea at the same time.
One looks like he's from the opening credits of Law & Order.
One looks like his life partner just broke up with him.
And one just saw that some dude is writing shit on his girlfriend's Facebook wall.
The Great One stepped down as coach of the Coyotes.
First time a rat jumped from a ship after it sunk.
Just an FYI.
Last year, the Pens marketing revolved around "It's A Great Day For Hockey."
This year, it's "Defy Ordinary."
And the new-look Pens website is in the best shape of its life.

There is nothing better than watching people fail.
Especially people that declare themselves anarchists.
After all the idle threats, the anarchists basically pulled a Cam Ward and shit themselves.
As of midnight, last-ditch efforts by anarchists have been thwarted by police.
We the Pensblog are also urging Mayor G20STAHL to sign a law into effect
that will allow police to use wrestling finishing moves on protesters.
This is all we will remember G-20 for.

Dan Bylsma has said that the final two preseason games would be "dress rehearsals" for the regular season.
Two more games until the regular season?
Meanwhile, the G20 is taking over the city.
But that doesn't mean people aren't thinking about the Penguins:

This has been floating around in cblog for a while, but it deserves its own post:
Gameday will be up later.

It's been a while.
Technical difficulties and G20 summits and such.
We spent all day Wednesday trying to find someone
who actually cares about the Pens-Leafs game from Tuesday night.
All we can say is that as the game went on, that one Sabres fan with the big boobs
from the Center Ice commercials kept getting hotter and hotter.
You know who we're talking about.
And there was nothing you could do about it.
