My Boy, We're Pilgrims In An Unholy Land

The gentlemen at The Pensblog asked me to do a brief preview of the 2008-09 Caps for their fine site and I happily obliged. Head on over there to read what I threw together and don't be shy about making yourself heard in the comments (if and when they re-open posts for commenting, that is)... lord knows I'll probably need the back-up.

Commendable job, JP, especially in keeping it succinct and lighthearted. I enjoyed it.

JP said...

@ Hooks: Thanks. I didn't want to antagonize the natives too much, so I looked for common ground in jobbing the Flyers and Wyshynski.

I'm disappointed that they shut the comments down, though (obviously unrelated to my post) - I'd have liked to have gotten at least some abuse for my efforts.

how come you didn't get an introduction like others have gotten?

I'm disappointed that they shut the comments down, though.

Yeah, that is bizarre. The Pensblog is all sorts of weird these days.

Still, if you're looking for criticism, you stink! ;)

Well, except for the previews, they're actually pretty good.

Why did they shut down the comments? Whats the story on that?

Hooks Orpik said...

They've been in some sort of funk lately...I think the boys could use a break and a getaway for a little bit.

I'm not sure why they turned off comments, I think some commenters were giving their graphics guy a lot of grief.

Earl's right, things have seemed really strange and odd over there in the past week, the writers don't really seem like themselves lately

Fine job, JP!

Extra credit points for an appropriate use of Calvin & Hobbes as well.

Bravo!

Is that a Tea Bagger (with Malkin on it) an actual product? If so where can I buy one, it would be a great gift for the up coming holidays.

Man I am disapointed that the pensblog comments were shut down.

Nicely done. As you said, it will all depend on our blueline.

C&H is better than opium.

Fun read.

Japers, you have the best caps blog. As a Pens fan in MD, I do look into what else is going on in blogsphere. By far yours is so much better than OFB's "Haven for the Hockey Malnourished" b-s. I base this on relevency to vital info about the Capitals team itself.

JP said...

Thanks for the kind words, all (and let's try to keep the focus on hockey and what I do here - not what others do elsewhere).

nice post, JP. Definitely loved the bit about the Backstrom goal best. Do you think the ticket price hike has anything to do w/ Ted trying to find a way to keep us Pens fans away from your arena?

JP said...

@ Anon: It's definitely part of the motivation.
