At least I think that's a clarinet. My entire musical endeavors involved the plastic recorder in like 2nd and 3rd grades, and like a minute of piano lessons which I immediately gave up about a year or two later. So don't trust my judgment on which instrument is which.
But who cares about that. All I see/hear is the Penguins theme song, righteously played on some thing. Too bad this isn't longer...that's my only critique.
Big Ben is so unstoppable that he would've had this thing solved in like a minute. That is, unless the concussion symptoms showed up right before he made his attempt.
There's really not much I can add to a video of a guy solving a Rubik's Cube. I mean...I could give tips on some sick song this guy could've put in the background, but that's another story. So instead, I'm going to point out a seemingly insignificant part of this vid that really made me smile.
Right in the credits, the Cube-solver gives thanks to anyone who watches his feat. Immediately after the thank yous are given, he appropriately throws out a GO PENS! remark. And this is the stuff I live for.
At our Penguins bar in Manhattan, we recently had a wee bit of trouble with a belligerent Pittsburgh fan. Nothing major...just not the stuff you're used to expecting from someone rooting for the same teams as you. This dude came to his first game with us late in the Washington series...as we've been getting greater numbers of "new" fans showing up as we advance deeper into the playoffs.
Dude was wearing a Steelers hat, and stuck around after the game to hang with some of the "regulars"...those of us that have been watching Pens games together since last season. He made a remark to my friend Heather that he wouldn't mind if the Pens went 0-82 as long as the Steelers won the Super Bowl. Then he facewashed Heather.
He's not allowed back.
This video shows how Pittsburgh fans are SUPPOSED to react to the local teams. Here we have a guy making a video with the Steelers as the main subject. However, he realizes that we're way into Penguins season, so a shoutout to continued success in the current Stanley Cup run for the Pens is the classy way to go.
The Steelers are great and all, but if you're a Pittsburgher, and your mind isn't primarily on the Pens right now, then I think you need to get yourself checked out. Or at least don't make snide-ass comments about the Pens when you're in a Penguins bar after a Penguins playoff game amidst plenty of Penguins fans.
Whatever...just wanted to point out how sick this Cube-solver is for giving love to the Pens. And to ridicule the ignorant "Penguins fan" that rudely entered our bar and acted like he owned the place.
The video is below. I'll shut up now.
Props to my dad for taking these and sending 'em over. The sweet little horse is from somewhere in New Jersey. And his hair blows in the wind oh so perfectly.

This is all you're getting today...go do something else.
Happy Memorial Day, and Go Pens!
Quicker turnaround for Game 3. If anyone is in game-shape, it's Mini Penguins Pony.
He's 3-0 so far this postseason. No real reason to break the streak right now. Luckily, I just remembered that he needed to get published today before the game started. I'm pretty superstitious, so I probably woulda been a wreck if I forgot.
Pittsburgh could really make a statement with a win tonight.
A Chrysler New Yorker couldn't stop him.
A bum appendix couldn't stop him.
The Seahawks and Cardinals couldn't stop him.
LeBron James, with your ZERO titles (to this point)...you may try, but you will fail just like the rest.
Spike TV is doing some ceremony called the Guys Choice Awards or something. In it, they have ridiculously random categories, facing two opponents against each other. All the categories are geared towards dudes, as you would expect from Spike. Big Ben is up against LeBron in the Most Unstoppable Jock part of the festivities.
So go vote for Ben. I did. We can't let someone from Cleveland beat a Steeler...I mean, Ben's undefeated against the Browns in his career. Vote at that link above, or the one below these words.
Because something this beautiful needs the spotlight by itself.
I'll shut up now and just let you enjoy the brilliance of it all.
Yeah, this isn't technically a horse, but just try and hate on a miniature donkey. It comes from this site, which was listing random magazines. Thanks to Matt B. for sending it in.

What are these celebrities at the Lakers game thinking? [The World of Isaac]
This little guy is currently 2-0 this postseason. I brought him out before Game 7 against the Caps, and then again for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Canes.
If we're really looking to hold onto home ice with a win in Game 2 tonight, then Mini Penguins Pony had better be ready.
