Separated at birth

Glavine doesn't look like Smoltz or Maddux

Future MLB Hall of Famer Tom Glavine (lower right, if you didn't know).

Ottawa Senators coach Cory Clouston.

Of course, you may know that Glavine was drafted in 1984 by the L.A. Kings ahead of Brett Hull and Luc Robitaile among others, but did you know he also suited up this year for the ECHL Gwinnett Gladiators?

Angry fans are angry

In the interest of fair "journalism," here's a video of a Caps fan after the Canadiens overtime winner last night (because if this happened in Montreal to a Habs fan, I'd post it, too):


Also, embedded the video instead of linking to it so you wouldn't have the urge to join in on the YouTube comments (don't look, just don't).

Similarly, from Thursday night, someone puts her fingers in The Shark Tank after the Avalanche score with under a minute in the 3rd period:

Is the sky falling? I just think of the Capitals record the past three playoff series. They won the first one against Philly in '08 but losst the series. Last year, they lost the opener against the Rangers but ended up winning the series. Then they won the first one two against the Penguins but lost the series. It's only logical to think that since the Capitals lost last night that they will win the series. Right? Just sure would have been nice for them to put the Habs down 2-0 since they don't have nearly the firepower the Penguins did.

Pens-Sens series outlook


The Penguins and Senators each allowed more goals per game during the season than the Capitals. And the Capitals have a goalie/defense "problem"??
Shout out to "Mother Goose and Grimm."

Just another regular season hockey game

Ovechkin padding stats

If you aren't losing, you don't have to pull the goalie.

A little housekeeping in Knuble's office

Laich in Knuble's office

Mike Knuble doesn't mind people in his office as long as they do some housekeeping.

When you want money, go to the bank. When you want bread, go to the bakery. When you want Books, go to the library. (Hey, at least VS. didn't use a mugshot of Chris Clark.)

87 > 8

Pens fan figures out 6th grade math but has issues grasping reality


Photo from Saturday's game in Columbus between the Capitals and the Blue Jackets. She was also wearing a Sidney Crosby jersey over her Sidney Crosby T-shirt. I don't know, trolling on message boards is one thing (as is creating a free blog that sometimes mocks opposing players), but to buy a ticket for a game in another city between two other teams just so you can satisfy the insecurity complex you have developed for your boy is just plain wacky.

I'm a huge Nebraska football fan, so maybe I should start hanging out in front of Peyton Manning's house with a sign reading "Mike Rucker pwns you!"
