  1. Unpopular Opinions

    This, except I'd go so far as to say they should just ditch the vintage white and replace the primary sweater with it. A white version, too.
  2. 2014-2015 NHL Jersey/Logo Changes

    Wilkes-Barre has pretty much the exact same thing with vegas gold, and it looks pretty damn good. Just sayin'.
  3. Interesting MiLB Park Features

    People's Natural Gas Field - Altoona, PA
  4. Creamer Concept World Cup - VOTING(FINALS)

    Group A Cameroon Brasil Croatia Mexico Group B Chile Netherlands Australia Spain Group D, holy crap Uruguay Italy Costa Rica England Group E France Honduras Ecuador Switzerland
  5. What Grinds Your Gears...

    Inversely, I and many Americans find "Mow-bile" annoying as well.
  6. EDIT: Nevermind. Stuff like this is what we need less of around here.
  7. Jfc, Penguins. And Subban is a prick. Unless ankle-stomping, flying elbows, and slew-footing are cool.
  8. In an amazing turn of events, once the Penguins started playing solid defensively in front of him, all of Fleury's critics disappeared. Amazing what not giving up forty shots and constant odd man rushes every night will do for a goalie...
  9. That was an... interesting series. Way to keep it together, Pens. Good on the Jackets to give them a hell of a time the whole way. Columbus is a hell of a hockey town, looking forward to more meetings in the future. Could be a great rivalry.
  10. If Columbus wins tonight, I would like to apologize to Ohioans in advance for how awful my Pittsburgh brethren are going to be. If we draw Detroit, however, it's gonna feel really weird for both parties.
  11. Winning does not equal playing well. Sometimes it actually hurts a team and fools them into thinking there are no flaws in their game. Then they get to the playoffs and are humiliated by the Flyers or Bruins.... ....wait, this sounds familiar. The other guys are getting paid to play/coach hockey, too. All that matters is getting the win, not how you look in getting the win. Win 10-0 or win 5-4 after trailing 4-0...both count the same. And all that matters in the playoffs is getting 16 wins, no matter how ugly or pretty they are. I'm getting convinced that many of you are starting to subscribe to the Lights Out/CS85 pessimistic "woe is me, my team will never win" attitude towards your teams, like you're looking for some sympathy from the masses. Don't understand that. It's not that serious. What are you trying to gain when you post "This team won't last very long in the playoffs."? You think people really want to see these types of posts? Eeeexactly what I expected in response. All I am saying is there is something to be said for being critical of a team even after a win. You can rack up 20 goals in three straight wins, but if you give up 15 in return, something is still wrong, and you are gonna get burned in the playoffs. Everyone knows playoff and regular season hockey are whole different animals. And trust me this is the last place I would go to if I was seeking sports-related sympathy. There's lots of wine here, yes, and lots of sour grapes along with it. I know the Penguins are gonna win the cup again someday. Will it happen this year with a injury-ridden roster depending on its stars because it has about as much forward depth as a backyard kiddie pool and a defense that's so bipolar it needs its own 90's teen drama? Probably not, but if it does, it'll be even sweeter. When it comes down to it, do you really care if the Penguins get sixteen wins of the 6-5 variety instead of 2-1, 3-2 contests? There's a distinct difference between being critical and being negative. Sure, it's fine to say "the defense needs to tighten things up" and the like, but there's really no reason to add "We're gonna get killed", "I hate sports", "We're gonna get our asses kicked", etc. It's especially petty when fans of teams currently sitting in the #2 slot to be pissing and moaning and dismissing their team's chances of winning the Cup, especially after their team just won a game. There are fans of 26 other franchises that would love to be in the very position that the Ducks and Penguins are in right now. These aren't robots playing sports. They're humans, and humans aren't perfect. You're not going to get "the perfect game" played every time. Quit acting like you're an analyst of the team and just enjoy sports for what they are: entertainment. Your team wins......enjoy the win and quit looking for negatives. In the playoffs, no, I don't give two :censored:s how they win, just that they do win. I wasn't in the group saying "my team is gonna get killed", I try to remain on the "cautiously optimistic" side of the spectrum, which I believe is okay. I believe the Penguins definitely can do it, but I know there are many reasons why they very well might not. Same goes for every team, and I prefer to look at both sides when weighing someone's chances. It doesn't affect how I watch the game or react to the result. Why can't someone analyze their team? Some people find that entertaining as well. I understand you hate people whining about sports, especially if the person is a fan of a good team, but don't tell people how to enjoy sports. That's like telling someone how to listen to their music. If someone wants to be a bit more cerebral when they watch guys skate around on ice, then so be it. Different strokes, different folks. No, because a blowjob is something I'd like to experience on a regular basis. Steigy is a joke. Why Root Sports favors him over a hall-of-famer and fan favorite is beyond me.

  13. Dumbest Names for Sports Venues?

    The Great Western Forum was a pretty good corporate name for a sports facility. Not all of them were/are bad.I never knew it was a corporate name until I was in Los Angeles and saw a Great Western bank.As a Penguin fan, I really wish another company had gotten naming rights. Because of its logo, I'm always thinking that Consol Energy is an air conditioning company. Yeah, another Pittsburghesque name should have been used. It probably would have been something like "Highmark Center" or "UPMC Center" or "US Steel Center" or "PPG Arena" instead, so it doesn't get much better. After a while, Consol Energy Center didn't sound so bad. At least compared to American Eagle Arena or Sheetz Arena.

  15. Someone enlighten me because I'm not sure - I thought judgement calls can't be made retroactively from a review (nevermind the fact Sutter was shoved into Jones). To review it and call it a goal but then not a goal at the same time seemed pretty off to me.
