First off...I COMPLETELY APOLOGIZE for posting an image of the harshest moment in semi-recent Pirates memory. It hurt me just uploading it to my site as much as it likely pains you to see it again.
Now on to more important findings. Deadspin has compiled a list of random and unique responses that fans have gotten from athletes. Some expectant-father Braves fan received an autographed photo of that NLCS play at the plate with the following inscription:
Mike, Congradulations [sic] for the new baby that is coming. Can I tell you that Sidney would be a good name for a girl, but don't name your boy that. I was not too fond of my name.
Since Bream's slide started a Pirates spiral in 1992, the name had to be among the lowest in local baby-naming lists for many a year following. In fact, it took 13 years for Sidney Crosby to be drafted to the Steel City, ending a mostly-negative connotation with that first name. And it took 17 years for a Pittsburgh championship wi...

Haha. It’s funny because Sidney Crosby has suffered through a litany of concussion issues over the years. But this clearly randy Pittsburgh Penguins fan believes that if Sidney Crosby should have to go through the experience of suffering another concussion, what better way to do so than during a sweet, passionate, head injury-causing session of […]The post Female Penguins fan...
Sidney Crosby concussion jokes are nothing new, though they usually don’t tend to come from Pittsburgh fans. This female Pens fan let it be known that she wants Crosby’s next head injury to come via her bedroom headboard. Her parents must be so proud. The post This female Penguins fan would like Sidney Crosby’s next concussion to come via her headboard appeared first on The Nosebleeds.
It has been well-documented that Sidney Crosby has suffered through issues from concussions throughout the years. However it has gotten so bad that his own supporters are making jokes about it. This amorous Pittsburgh Penguins fan wants to give her beloved Sidney another concussion, but not from playing hockey, but from a raucous lovemaking session.
Well if you’re going to have...

First Goal Against (Reaves)
Matt Niskanen picks up the puck behind his own net and tries to skate it out by going through Alexander Steen. Steen pokes the puck off of Niskanen’s stick, but Niskanen recovers and gets the puck back. Niskanen then blindly throws a clearing...
James Neal and Beau Bennett have returned to the Penguins lineup. The allocation of talent amongst the forward ranks gets a huge boost because of their presence. For the past few weeks the Penguins have been icing what amounts to two fourth lines because of the injury situation. This has resulted in an overwhelming burden for Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to carry. Without...
from Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
How could it be?
Sidney Crosby went into the Penguins' game Wednesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers without a goal in seven games. Evgeni Malkin hadn't scored one in 10.
How could it be that the two stars failed to shine for so long?
The Penguins are paying big, big money to Crosby and Malkin to deliver...
from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
“Sometimes you hear the football analogy, when it’s a rivalry, ‘Well, it really doesn’t matter where the records are at or where the teams are at. You’re playing a rival, and they’re coming into your building,’” Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Tuesday.
“This feels exactly like that. … You’re not really...

Last Game for the Penguins: Saturday, a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. Ryan Reaves scored first at 2:52 of the first period off a deflection. Jussi Jokinen answered at 8:06 of the same period when he tipped in an Evgeni Malkin pass. No one scored again until 10:52 of the third period when Kevin Shattenkirk got a dribbler past Marc-Andre Fleury...
The Penguins and Blues were tied at 1 heading into the 3rd period of Saturday night's matchup but it was the Blues who found a way to win. The Blues were in control much of the evening despite the close score. Marc Andre Fleury did an admirable job holding the Blues to two goals.
Here are the game highlights:
The Blues were the better team all night long and were...
You won't find any surprises when comparing the Pittsburgh Penguins' game-by-game scoring totals with their results.
The Penguins are 11-2-0 when they put up three or more goals and 0-4-0 when they fall short of that. After scoring only twice in two games, they'll try to avoid their second three-game skid of the season Wednesday night at home against the Philadelphia...

There was a time in the not-too-distant past when Penguins opponents hated visiting the Steel City. Not only would they have to face a lethal lineup featuring hungry young stars such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but they knew they’d absorb more than a few bumps and bruises, too.
Now it seems, opponents are having far too easy time with the black and gold. Basically, all...
