Travel Blog from Sweden:


If you look over at Pittsburghpenguins.com they've got a teaser travel blog going. Kind of light on information, but they've put some of the usual post-practice interviews up so the truly addicted can pretend their beloved Penguins aren't thousands of miles away. The Fleury interview is the second one down on day 1. It may be just me, but considering the nearly complete lack of pre-season coverage by PP.com or FSN this is yet another desperate attempt to avoid rioting in the streets, like the jumbotron coverage of the Lightning game. The fans I've been in contact with and the other blogs I monitor remind me of heroin addicts waiting for the next shipment to come in. I just hope that when the season (and the coverage) finally starts we don't have any OD's. Try explaining that one to your HMO... "Uh... you see,... it was a.... Penguin overdose!" Yeah, they'll pony up for that one.
edit: The link now directs you to the premier overview page, you can access each blog and all the interviews there.
LATE EDIT: It seems as though someone, somewhere listened to someone's whining about their Pensjones and the first Ottowa game will be shown on the jumbotron in the same way the Detroit (must go wash fingers for typing that) Finals games were shown. Along with some free skating and tours of the arena it's all part of the Pittsburgh Birthday celebration. PS. No pucks or sticks allowed on the ice during the skates so no pick up games!

Wow. First. haha.

I'm here -- your "shameless" plug worked. haha.

My friends would definately consider me one of those "addicted" to hockey, and more specifically the Pittsburgh Penguins...instead of doing my school work I just watch Pens videos online... haha... Oh well...

Nice job...!!

Thanks! Selfish promotion has its place in the world, I guess. Oh and the support group for that Pens addiction? It starts meeting Oct 4th in front of tv's and in arenas and continues (hopefully) until sometime next June.

Ali said...

Yeah... but it's super hard to find any tv's playing the Pens in South Eastern Kentucky... this poor Pennsylvanian feels somewhat lost outside of her home state...

Hopefully -- the NHL with have their new centre ice thing up by the weekend...otherwise, this addict might well... who knows.

Stagerat said...

aha, that I might be able to help with go here and with a fast enough connection, all your weekend hockey viewing tribulations will cease...

forgot to tell you, click the little tv icon to the right of your game. also above the list you'll find a clicklist for weekdays, saturdays, sundays... I think you can figure out the rest.

@stagerat -- I've actually tried the myP2P link from "The Sidney Crosby Show" ... the campus computer system won't allow it... bummer... I know. I talked to our tech support and everything -- there's really nothing they can do about it. Frustrating... but I guess that's just how it's going to be. Thanks for the tip though! You don't understand how much I wish it worked -- yeah, well, maybe you do -- that addiction thing... haha...

**espn.com - Gonchar is having surgery, he's out for 4-6 months... ugh.
