We purposely waited for when the Pens were between series
to detail the domain-name situation.
But as of 1:00 P.M. Wednesday, we're done with it.
Watching a search-engine manipulator rub feces on himself
is only entertaining for 24 to 36 hours.
Other things to worry about...
Only one game on NBC? Good.
We'll be appearing on 102.5 DVE.
WEDNESDAY MORNING. 6:45 A.M.

They want to hear about the cybersquatting situation that has unfolded.

Is it safe to assume we're walking into some kind of trap?
Our own grandmothers wouldn't put us on the radio.
Something doesn't add up.
But WDVE actually promoted Rinkotology and the MLF.
Our apologies if our suspicions are wrong.
Whatev. Tune in.

Tonight the final two games of round one will be played.
The Penguins' round two opponent will be decided by these two games.
If Washington and New Jersey win, the Penguins head to Boston.
If Washington and Carolina win, the NHL marketing machine goes into overdrive as the Pens will play in Washington.
The Rangers and the Hurricanes winning brings the Canes to Mellon Arena.
Wins by New York and New Jersey have the Pens facing the Devils on the road.
Not one of those match-ups will be easy.
No one expected easy. It's the playoffs.
The “interim” is gone.
Interim Head Coach Dan Bylsma is now Head Coach Dan Bylsma.
"Dan has done such an impressive job with our team, both on and off the ice, that we didn’t see the need to wait any longer to announce our decision," said Ray Shero, the Penguins’ executive vice president and general manager. "He is the man we want to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins as our head coach."
"I want to thank Ray Shero and our ownership for giving me this tremendous opportunity to be the head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins," Bylsma said. "I’m humbled. I’m excited. And I look forward to continuing to lead our hockey team."
Bylsma has agreed to a multi-year deal with the team. Terms have not been released.Add a comment
After that Game 5 in Pittsburgh and the first period of Game 6,
it looked like a pretty good possibility that we would be seeing a Game 7 tonight.
Speaking of which, we still don't know what the deal was
with that Game 5 crowd in Pittsburgh.
While we don't have to live through a Game 7,
we will get to watch a couple on Tuesday.
Another good thing is we don't have to deal with Pierre Mcguire for a few days.
If you watched the Caps/Rangers game,
you probably realized how much he ruins broadcasts.
We checked and and saw that we posted this YouTube last year,
but we have no memories of what we post in the playoffs.
1:45 minute of the video.
Your life will change again.
Thanks to Yogin city for the tip.
The best thing about all the trash talk that goes on during the course of a playoff series is that, unlike most things in life, there will be a final and definite result.
With that said, Sidney Crosby will lead his team into the second round of the NHL playoffs, and Mike Richards will lead his team into a series of charity-golf events.
There is no debating that.
But make no mistake about it.
This game wasn't just about Crosby.
The common sentiment we've seen among Pens fans
is that every single Penguin did something significant in this one.
To a man, each did their part to secure one of the most uplifting non-Stanley Cup clinching wins in the history of the franchise; and a 0-3 comeback at that.
For those of us born in the mid-'80s or later, this win is big.
But how about the Pens fans that endured the Flyers beating the Pens
42 straight times in Philadephia in the '80s and early '90s?
Oh, how sweet it is.
We'd like to think the last thing to go through John Steven's head, other than the thoughts of little boys, is how the hell Disco Dan and Crosby's leadership got the best of him.
