Thanks to my sister for this one. It's from a Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Lawepisode. Reducto shrinks a horse and calls it "Smidgen." The look on Reducto's face in this picture is more or less the reason I run this blog.
You can hate on me for giving him the idea, but blame Damian for the execution of the vision. That's absolutely night terror-inducing. But Damian's right that Geno is going to need to play like a former Cup winner like Jagr in order for the Pens to have a chance tonight.
Also, my sister was Googling for Andrew WK, and accidentally left off the "K." The below image was one of the first things that popped up. Of course it would.
The third song in the playlist is the One (Remix), by Technique, ft. Akir. It was originally an Akir joint off his initial underground release, Street Edition Vol.1. Tech closed out his second album with the noted remix.
This song is one of my favorites, because it sums up the style and substance of both artists, while remaining relatively positive in its outlook. But now, with the Penguins' backs against the wall, the word "ONE" means so much more...and the hook in the song fits perfectly with our current situation as fans of the underdog facing elimination.
One love One music One people One movement One heart One spark One, One, One, One One gift One lift One stance One shift One way One day One, One, One, One, One
If you can't relate that to the task at hand tonight in Game 6, then you just suck at everything.
There's so much riding on this ONE game tonight. The crowd at the Civic Arena will have to be ONE people, ONE movement...creating ONE heart and ONE spark.
Because there's nothing left if we lose this game. Together, the Pens will have ONE stance, playing ONE shift at a time. There's only ONE way to get to Game 7, and it all rests on this ONE day.
I'm confident in our team on home ice, as the Wings have yet to beat us there in this series. So if we're going to establish ourselves as actual contenders for the 2008-09 Stanley Cup, we'll need a truly inspiring effort in our ONE final home game.
Remember last week, when we were introduced to the awesomeness that is Creation Rex? The Art Institute of Pittsburgh's dinosaur statue, who runs his own unreal blog, was dressed in a playoff beard and Penguins jersey in support of the home team. Then, he ate an octopus which helped the Pens win Games 3 and 4.
So I decided to Google Map the Art Institute to try and see Rex from an angle that you can't get anywhere else online. My little brother is going into his senior year at Point Park University, so I know that area of the Boulevard of the Allies like none other.
When I zoomed into Street View, I could see Rex in his clear pre-playoffs glory. There was some white thing attached to Rex, and from afar, it looked like tighty whities. Now, Rex was still far away, so it would take a few zooms to straighten this out.
Going just a bit closer, the undies-angle was thrown out the window. The blurry white thing is obviously in Rex's hands, not around his man-parts (dino-parts?). There's still no way of figuring out what that thing is without zooming in a little more.
No way. That thing looked so familiar, but I'd need some corroberating evidence in order to prove my theory to be correct. It took a little digging, but:
YES! A Pens towel! So those of you that thought that Rex jumped on the bandwagon just so he could sport a sweet beard and awesome black and gold attire...you thought wrong. Rex has no beard in the Google Maps image, not even a little dino-stubble, so Rex has probably been supporting the Pens longer than some of the fans that came aboard just because the team is in the Finals.
Now, with Game 6 looming, Rex might have to eat something even more epic to get the mojo back in our favor.
