Games 35 through 39

Errey Blog gone skiing.

Maybe Ryan will pick up my slack, maybe not...

Game 34; Pens vs. ex-Pens

"This is like a bunch of vultures on a dead animal!"

Game 33; Pens vs. Sabres

These Versus announcers are terrible...

Where are the stories about bears eating baby moose? Come on!

Game 32; Pens vs. Leafs

"...and Siefers couldn't decipher what was going on."

This game was too depressing to pay close attention to, so I got nothing else...

Game 31; Pens vs. Why is there a hockey team in Atlanta?

"The key for the Penguins is to jump on Ottawa. Maybe Ottawa, they're having a tough time... oh, sorry. Atlanta..."

"Tim Wallace was telling us today he was on the golf course watching a bear eat a baby moose and he went right up to it! What are you thinking, Tim?!?!?! He said, 'I don't know it wasn't a very smart idea.' Blood all over the bear... Is this too descriptive for you right now? Sorry. Turn your sound down at home, folks. Sorry about that kids."
(This is an early nominee for story of the year)

Steiggy: "A bear, eating a baby moose, on the golf course..."

"The moose must have gotten hit. He must have shanked one."

Game 30; Pens vs. Flyers

Whoops. Pass...

Game 29; Pens vs. Isles

"I had to sign a waiver to sit between the benches. I had to sign on the dotted line!"

"It goes right by that glove again. Somebody's gotta get some fishin' line or something into Joey McDonald's glove!"

"These are tape measure shots, Steiggy…You can get your tape measure out and you, uhh, might run out of metal."

"You can only control what you can control."

Steiggy: "Remember that movie Mystery, Alaska...which I thought was a terrible movie by the way..."

Steiggy: "What was better: Mystery, Alaska or Sudden Death?"
Errey: "Uh...Sudden Death had a sudden death."

"Uh oh! Is there any hats left? If you kept it on the first time, well, shame on you...but...we love to see you puttin' it out there the second time! And I hope they're going to be down... Oh we got bags! We got everything coming down here!"

Steiggy: "...and the fans are chanting 'we want 10'!"
Errey: "It used to be 'we want chili!'"

"Everyone's going to go home without their lids on tonight, Steiggy. And no bags! We saw a lot of bags come on the ice...:"

And some more thanks to Nick since I was on the phone for half the game:

"I'll tell you right now, Matt Cooke is a hockey player."

"I can't wait to see the Alaskan crab up in Atlanta!"

"No… I think the election screwed up interest in Alaska…"

"...and Dupius came in the back door to tickle that twine."

(in reference to Curry falling on his stomach): "Orpik can-opened him!"

"Gotta give some credit to the ice crew… you don't score 8 without good ice!"

"All those hats are gonna be in the Sykora locker room after the game."

"Billy Guerin just can't do enough to get thrown outta this game."

Steiggy: "Billy Guerin is going down the runway."
Errey: "Ha ha... the early shower!"

Game 28; Pens vs. The Empty Seats of Newark

Entirely too many new people and new numbers. So many questions...

"Watch these stars play, you'll learn a lot. I wish I would've learned that!"

On Gionta: "Orpik took that license plate number...and it was a small plate."

Steiggy: "Speaking of snow blowing, did you hear about Joe Sakic?" (Best transition since "Speaking of cancer, Jason Blake...")

Steiggy: "Malkin roaming around like a shark..."

"Doesn't give you the right to punch someone in the squash. Talk about squashes! Holik in the box..."

Game 27; Pens vs. Sabres

Stupid Versus...

Game 26; Pens vs. Senators

"That's a lot of flesh!"

I planned on watching the rest of this game on the DVR after only seeing most of the first period, but it's probably never going to happen...

Game 25; Pens vs. Canes

Steiggy: "The shot clock is difficult to find here. We need a periscope...
Errey: "It's right there, Steiggy."
Steiggy: "Oh yeah, it's right there..."
Errey: "You're trying to look through banners, and everything else and it's two-inches from you here!"
(Insert Errey singing/humming here)

I love Melichar...

Q: Can we go a single game against Carolina without Ray Whitney being called a waterbug?
A: No.

Steiggy: "Ron Francis doesn't need a system. He has a system in his head."

On that note, it's Hough's time...

Game 24; Pens vs. Rangers

"It took a while, but the laundry's off!"

"Oh man, he curled and dragged it around Koharski!"

Steiggy: "That's how you know you've arrived, when you get your own bobblehead."

"It's okay if it's Bobby Orr, but not Colton!"

"It's time for a star player to put his name in the headlights. Headlights? What are those boards called in...Times Square?"
