thanks for your reply to my comment on june 30 to your post, Note to Jagr: We Remember You When. However, we all saw this coming, well by we all, i mean everyone but GTOG. i am die hard pens fan. i grew up in the burgh, had season tix and started my hatred of JJ in the spring of 92 when he was quoted in SI saying "i'd like to play for a team closer to the beach". that was long before anyone else ever boo-ed jj. then he became disgruntled and egotistical and we traded him to the caps for crap. then years passed and here we were trying to get him back. as he said, it's not about the money, which in fact, it was (not sure how 1.3 million makes a huge difference to a guy who has made over $90 million in his career). anyway, when shero gave the time deadline and it passed, it was obvious he would not retire a penguin. maybe it was about length of contract (which its not). but we dropped out and det dropped out. why detroit, strange. anyway, as per my comment on your blog yesterday, philly was in the mix yet you asked me if i beat my wife. my guess is that people in the burgh were too involved in the jj to pitt to see the big picture. just sayin. sad cause disco dan, shero and 66 got badly burned in all their pr to get the cocksucker back in the black n gold (and let him go out on top and a great story). wow. from a great pens player to the most hated pens player. i don't see jj playing any games in pitt this season. and if he does, i can only imagine and hope that he is showered with boos (and anything else). especially punches. sad to say but i hope he gets a police escort in an ambulance to the nearest hospital. i'm just in shock that he went to philly. and dissed mario. i'd love to hear the real story as to why he was holding out on us or didn't accept. i mean really, philly. i get detroit. but philly. wow.
Sorry if GTOG's joke in response to your earlier comment went completely over your head. It happens. Interesting that you profess to have seen this coming, but are at the same time "shocked" Jagr went to Philly. I'm sure in time you will sort it all out. Good luck.
i love you guys and all your pens posts. (yes the reality of jj in a flyers uni can be shocking if the rumors were out there). and speaking of reality i get lost with all the real housewives and bachelorette crap. now onto the shock and awe of max 'shhhhhh' talbot being a flyer.
Not sure any of that response really holds together either, but thanks for reading. If you need help navigating the blog posts, just let us know. We recognize that some people may have a harder time with it than others
Have you guys seen the Burnside reports of this on ESPN.com? As you have noted in prior posts, these are laughable. Can't they at least pretend that they make an effort? It looks like he was dragged away from his local community pool to report this. Maybe some sense of professionalism... A green screen? A fake set? Maybe even a button-down shirt?
