Ken Laird tweeted this from Steelers camp:
Guaranteed some Steeler fans high-fived after this tweet. Sorry to make a mountain out of Larry Foote's meaningless career, but this just makes us angry. Big time insult to Penguin fans we feel. Imagine if Craig Adams wore a Cardinals jersey and said this. He would be publicly hung by Luke Ravenstahl in market square. Get real.
Picture: Larry Foote faking an injury to go get another gay tattoo.
Go Pens, fuck Larry Foote.Add a comment
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.
