Sorry Dad! Pens lose.

What a game to have the Dads at. Get a three goal lead and BAM! we're off to a great start and the Pens are on top of the world! YESSSSSSSSSSSS! *Napoleon Dynamite style* And then all of a sudden, before you know it, here come the Predators. 3-1, 3-2, 3-3, 4-3, and now you're having flash backs from earlier in the season. You know, when the Pens would build a lead and things were great and then they'd let up and all of a sudden they're losing. Yeah, good times. We can deal with those down to the wire games where they come out with a win, but these build a lead and then let it all fly out the window is for the birds.

We still have no idea what to say anymore. It just seems like there is no real chemistry there and some guys just aren't holding up their end of the deal on the ice. The line shuffling is now starting to bug us. Before, it was eh, but now it's just annoying. How can you gain chemistry when you're playing with different guys every night? Therrien is switching before games, during games, probably all night long for all we know but it's getting ridiculous. The defense isn't good enough and Marc-Andre Fleury can't do it all. Don't get us wrong, we're not saying he gets no blame, but he's not getting the help he deserves either.

That's really all we have to say about tonight. We missed the majority of the third period because we had extra hands to help us put up our new Sidney Crosby Fathead. Trust us, it takes more than one person. Took a bit longer than we thought and was kind of a pain in the ass, but in the end it looks pretty freakin' awesome. We took down a Ben Roethlisberger banner and put up a Sidney Crosby Fathead. Now we call that an upgrade. We have no idea if we think these things are worth the price, but damn does it look awesome when it's done. The extras you get really add to it too. Especially if you get a good deal, get one. It'll make your room, game room, team room, whatever look awesome. And yes, they are HUGE.

Penguins Notebook  Pascal Dupuis could play in Denver on Saturday. Coach Therrien said "there's a chance."

Today's question for Dave Molinari is an interesting one. Should Sidney Crosby move out of Mario's house? Now we've heard some people talking about this lately and don't really see how it would help. We get what people are saying in terms of growing up and all of that, but we think people tend to forget that this kid has had eyes on him for years and needed to grow up fast years ago. Most 21 year old guys are still slumming around at the bar trying to pick up girls, not making multi-million dollar contracts and leading a professional hockey team. Moving out of Mario's house isn't going to change his playing, nor will it make him any more of a leader. Not to mention he has his own section of Mario's presumably large home. Please give up on the excuses and stop trying to find answers where there are none and look at the situation at hand.

We know we haven't done our Steelers post yet, and more than likely we'll have some huge post with a lot of random stuff for you to read if you choose to do so. But before then we have a couple of videos for you. First off, Jim did a new episode of Yinz Luv 'Da Stillers. Jim, where's Yinz Luv 'Da Guins?!

The Steelers 'D' had a family portrait taken and the Post-Gazette has the video of it. As you can imagine, the guys were having a crazy good time. Enjoy.
