Back in the saddle
We made a huge mistake by searching "gay man on horse" in Google Images.
Our hatred for the Rangers keeps decreasing every time a Red Wing player or fan speaks. Rangers fans just don't seem so obnoxious as they once did. That'll probably change during tonight's game, when Naslund scores some debilitating goal and points to Craig Patrick.
SUPER PENSBLOG GIVEAWAY
Don't ask, but we have our hands on two Consol Energy Center T-shirts.
One is a Large. One is an Extra Large.

GAME PREDICTION GIVEAWAY — LARGE T-SHIRT
The winner of this part of the contest will win the Large, even though the agency in control of the ads on our blog think everyone who comes here is fat. This will be the part of the contest that literally everyone will have a chance to win, so going with the Large is a safe bet.
Starting with FRIDAY NIGHT AGAINST THE DEVILS, all you have to do is put a prediction in the comments section of the GameDay post: Who will win, what the score will be, who will score the game-winning goal.
We were born cheaters, so we inspected the comments section, and, yes, timestamps of comments get updated if someone edits it. You have to get your prediction in before game time. And the timestamp of your comment is set whenever you start typing a comment, so don't think you're gonna type a letter into a comment at 6:30, wait all game, and publish the comment at the end of the third. We'll be screen-shotting the comments up until gametime, and we're guessing some C-Blog regulars will be watching these contest entries like hawks.
We'll have an official rundown of this part during the day on Friday.
THIS CONTEST DOES NOT START TONIGHT
HEADER BANNER GIVEWAY — XL T-SHIRT
This portion of the contest begins as soon as you finishing reading this sentence, which is gonna be a run-on sentence so it's gonna piss you off that you can't get cracking on winning this part of the contest until you finish reading this sentence, which is a run-on, as compared to a run-off, which occurs when the soil of a portion of land is completed saturated with water and the remaining water has nowhere to go, which is something people in Pittsburgh may be facing in a few days when all the snow we've gotten recently melts and your mom eats lima beans for breakfast.
To win this contest, you have to design a header banner for the top of the blog. Final entries are due Sunday, February 8th. Depending on the number of entries, we may have a bracketed tournament to decide the winner, which will be voted on by readers.
