Big brouhaha since Pens-Isles Game 4. The game where Sid, early in his 3rd game back from jaw surgery, took a puck to the throat just under his fishbowl jaw protector. Isles fans not only cheered the injury in unison, a bad enough showing, they used "Princess Crosby" chants which tend to incite calls of sexism because haha you're calling him a woman which is lesser than a man.
Barstool Sports got on Sporting News writer Jesse Spector's case, since Spector called out the Isles fans and Barstool responded with typical bravado. "You called a man a woman and also insulted an injury" vs. "MAN UP THIS IS HOW THINGS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN," with just a touch of that Philly anti-Sid irrationality in the latter camp. You know, where apparently Sid is a flopper when Nabby is jumping around like a pogo stick and only an Islander has been called for diving this series.
Anyway, I'm not here to sway you to either side. I'm an admitted Sid fan, and you're reading these words on a Pittsburgh sports humor website. You know my side. I'm just here to point out how crappy Isles fans are at their insults. Forget the women-bashing and injury-cheering, I'm concerned about that sign up top.
Printhess Cindy? I mean this is a great double-up, you can somehow allude to breaking your jaw as a sissy move while also making fun of a lisp created by 100+MPH of vulcanized rubber. Now, we've made fun of Bryan Murray's lisp before so that's all fair game, but what about the dedication? Why is only the first s-sound lisped into the -th? Shouldn't it be Printheth Cindy? Or better yet, Printheth Thindy. It's concerning when idiot Isles fans half-ass their shoddy insults.

Thanks to usbzoso for sending this over a while back and to Twitter for picking today's Mini Pony of the Day. Two twin baby moose will always in the running for this honor.
In the below video, the two baby moose play in a sprinkler. That should be all you need to hear to click play. They look so huge at first, then Mama Moose comes out and completely dwarfs the babies. As much as I want to pet and play with the babies there is no way I'm messing with a full-sized moose. It's like how baby hippos are unreal and then Mama Hippos will eat you alive.
Literally no clue what that music is in the video. Mute it hard.no comments
Thanks to Jessica and Billy and Rob and Gracie and Terry and Z P and Holly for this. Yesterday some Craigslist ad popped up with a Long Island firefighter wanting to give away his mini horse for free. This was awesome news to me, a Brooklyn resident, and I immediately began seeing if my apartment could hold a large-enough pen.
And then smrtmnky chimed in and let me know if was a prank and a fake posting. You have no ideas the highs and lows associated with the facts of this story. Now I have to go back and double check every other Craigslist mini pony we've come across.no comments
Gary the mini pony. psamp he was so gangsta
they were everywhere and a lemur escaped and wrecked like 20 minutes of the show.
Here's the other dude, def not as cool as Gary
That's Gary up top and the other guy below Gary. And I see several other buddies. Another staggering entry into our collection of circus mini ponies.no comments
How does this slip by? How does one wear this out without noticing the upside-down MILLER nameplate? Or is this kid just super confident and a person who thrives off attention?
We've looked at this phenomenon in a roundabout way back in 2010 when some dude at Mario's 2000 comeback game couldn't hold a sign up the right way. That is a bit more forgivable because in a frenzy there's like 4 possible ways of thrusting that into the air with your sign message facing the ice, 8 different ways if you're in a rush and hold the back side up to the ice. But a jersey can really only be put on 2 ways, and backwards would be an insult to Kriss Kross cos one of them just died in the past week.
So inspect your knockoffs, kids. Or hold up a sign saying you know the nameplate is upside-down and you're wearing it that way for the attention so us old crotchety people can get with it.

Thanks to The Pen Spot for sending this over. He says:
After going to the first game of the playoffs I was inspired to make a short animation that represents in a simple form of how I think this first round of the playoffs will turn out.
And in this 11-second clip, the animated Islander is shown putting up a better fight than anything the real Islanders did in Game 1.
