I have to watch it at home. Too many fans who think they know shit when they don't when I'm out anywhere.

Yeah thats the worst. Really puts a damper on watching a game too. The worst is people doing it while youre at sporting events. Hockey seems to draw the worst of it around here though. Much worse than football or baseball.

That reminds me of Paul Zeise (other pittsburghers will know him as a radio host on the fan). The guy mainly does CFB and CBB and is generally terrible on the radio. But for some reason starting 2 years ago 93.7 The Fan (pittsburgh talk radio- Pirates flagship) allowed him to start doing Penguins post-game.

I kid you not, my friend was at a Pens game 2 years back sitting 2 seats over from this guy, and he asked the person he was with what Icing was... and they were letting this guy do Penguins post game on the most popular sports talk radio station in Pgh. He's not on the Penguins flagship, they actually know what theyre doing. Other than firing Bob Grove. Any other yinzers in here know why they canned him after last season?

Well that's pretty bad. At games I always seem to sit in front of guys who have the urge to talk the whole game and act like they know stuff. One game was a guy saying The Joe wasn't that old and probably only 15 years ago....or 35 but whatever. Another one was a lady kept yelling shoot it when the player didn't have a lane to do it and would have just been blocked. Then one guy in March saying why don't they just build the new arena here. Smart idea? So where would they play for 3-5 years it would take to tear down JLA and build the new place?

Not sure if we posted this one yet. Another good one from a guy we all hated (sports hated) on from time to time. I know he did one a while back too. Video is good too.

We should make a "Stupid Things Heard at Sporting Events Thread" :lol

Anyway, serious question...

Say they wanted to build on the JLA site could they have played at the Palace while it was being built?

How far away is the new place?

There are times where I just want to say "shoot the fucking puck" but yeah the people who say it all the time and at dumb times I don't get. Mine are at times when a guy who is struggling thinks "I'm gonna pass up this wide open shot" No douche, shoot it.

Sure I mean at times it's appropriate. Down by 2 on a 2 man advantage late in the third? Absolutely, take every god damn shot you can rifle off then look for the block. But middle of the first, even strength, just coming into the zone? Nope. Big bag of nope.

Yeah clearly there are times when its appropriate. 90% of the morons in the stands who yell it cant understand what a shooting lane is and just yell it because Malkin has the puck, nevermind the 3 bodies directly between him and the net.

I bet they would have played at The Palace but Illitch wasn't gonna make fans drive out to Auburn Hills for a few years. The last lease with the city for The Joe was up a few years ago, before the new place was approved, and The Palace was floated out there and they even toured it I think but it was the Pens talking with KC type thing, just within the state, to get a good short term lease from the city.

The new arena is about 1.5 miles from Joe Louis. It'll be so much better to be around everything else that is happening downtown.

In 2010 I was on a cruise for games 4, 5 and 6 of the finals so I got to watch the Hawks beat the Flyers in OT to win the cup up on deck on a 60' plasma screen. Admittedly I had to give some crew member like 20 bucks to change the channel from whatever they were showing. Oddly enough once it went to OT and word spread around that the cup may come out a lot of casual fans, fans of other teams and people who just wanted to have fun were up on deck with us. Helluva fun way to watch your team win - huge screen, bunch of fun people. ocean breeze hitting you, 2 overflowing bar areas and a beautiful weather in the gulf of Mexico! When Kane ended it I bought drinks for about 10-15 people who had been there near us since the beginning of the game.

Yeah a few years back (I wanna say 2014?) there was a terrible storm rolling through Albany and I was at the bar with friends watching the eventual final game when the storm cut the satellite feed with about 4 minutes left in the third with the score tied. I ran through the torrential downpour to try and find a bar with the game on and service and we ended up drenched soaking and dripping at a wine bar. We definitely didn't fit in but we didn't give one fuck :lol

We made it back to our bar for OT and the eventual winner though.

Yes they are!

One of my favorites ever was from a Pens game I went to years ago, like the late 1990's. This guy behind us just kept yelling "WHACK HIM!!" every 10 seconds or so.

Would have done the exact same thing and would not have cared at all why kind of place it was or how I was dressed compared to other customers - usually I try to dress similarly to the crowd at a given establishment. What really bugs me is when I go to a bar during the stanley cup playoffs and they have 7 TV's tuned to the same F-ing NBA game and I have to practically choke the waiter to get one TV switched over to the NHL game.

If Pens win, Conn Smythe....

I see the argument for Crosby even though he hasn't been lighting it up or anything. I gotta go Murray. He was put with a near impossible task in front of him and yet here he is. Was replaced when he shouldn't have been and still came back the game after and won, and then won the series.

Conn Smythe could go equally to Crosby, Kessel, or Murray. Give it to either one and it's well deserved.

Like I said before, if they were to give an MVP for JUST the Finals, I'd give it to Ben Lovejoy in a heartbeat. That guy just potentially dramatically increased his UFA value by at least $1-2 million.

I think odds are highest it goes to Crosby as more of a lifetime achievement. Media wont vote for Kessel and I just dont see it going to Murray.
