Matt Cooke, Justin Bieber, Sarah Palin, Baby Pandas

By Finesse

If the last three days have taught us anything, it's that there are really only 4 things that get people excited on the Internet, excluding the obvious one, and if you don't know what that is, then think about why there is now "In Private Browsing."  The other four, in order:

1) Justin Bieber, understandably
2) Panda Videos, also understandably
3) Any headline that says something to the effect of, "Sarah Palin comment raises eyebrows"
4) Debating Matt Cooke's year-old hit on Marc Savard

People have formed their opinions on Matt Cooke's hit, just as most people already have formed opinions on Bieber, pandas, and Sarah Palin.  This was more than clear from the comments section to yesterday's post about Mario Lemieux's statement.

"Free Matt Cooke, also too."
We've made our opinions on the subject clear many times, so there is not really any point to continually discussing something that happened a year ago.  It would be like continuing to debate the Nordic Combined results from last year's Olympics.  It was incredibly polarizing, but it's over and we're moving on.

So consider this a vow to look forward with the Pens, not backward.  There is a lot of business to take care of.



  1. What do I get excited about on the internet? Your Bachelor recaps. I'm hitting "refresh" all day until it's posted!

  2. Maybe the interwebz has conditioned me but more often than not when I read "GTOG" I see "GTFO." In light of Penguins fans playing heel lately maybe that's fitting.
