My name is the Blueline Bandit. My Unreal wife is known as the Moose. We love hockey and are passionate Pens fans. We will never claim to be experts and will never claim that our opinion is fact. We just love discussing our boys, win or lose. We started out small on Facebook and we hope our faithful Facebook friends follow us here and we hope to make some new ones.
We live roughly an hour south of the Burgh and almost never miss a game on TV. We make it down to the Igloo about three times a year for a game in person. Our favorite players tend to be defensemen. (hence the blog name). My favorite is Letang and the Moose's favorite is Goligoski. At our wedding reception, we entered wearing our Pens jerseys to "The Boys of Winter", had a ceremonial puck drop, and drank champagne out of a little replica Stanley Cup. Unreal, I know.
We talk in PBS, thats PensBlog Slang (Unreal, Buries It, etc.) and usually refer to players by nicknames, so we apologize if we blow your mind.
Feel free to leave comments, thoughts, questions, or stories. Arguments are welcome, just don't be disrespectful and don't get personal. Keep it real.
Pens and Sens on Thursday. Down yet another d-man in McKee, but we got a great one coming back in Sarge. Orpik and Tanger aren't far behind. Superstar is slated to make a triumphant return to the ice as well. Hoping to get healthy again soon and striking fear back into the EC.
Well, that's it for now. We hope you come back often, we hope you enjoy our rants, and we hope you continue to cheer on the most Unreal hockey team in the world, The Pittsburgh F'in' Penguins.
I leave you now with Bing and the Torch. Chills.
