Links that are still looking for Rick Nash to show up.

What a job by every Pens fan in Columbus on Saturday night.  Pens fans may have set back Columbus hockey at least 4 years.  But that probably happened when they named Rick Nash their captain.  Nash had a chance to shut Pittsburgh fans up with a big-time performance, but instead he came out, boarded Brooks Orpik, then stood in the corner and cried all night.

Some final thoughts on our Columbus trip

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg Really nice setup in Columbus called the Arena District.  If Pittsburgh had something like this it would clean up.
It probably would've been the outlay in downtown Pittsburgh if Isle Of Capri would have gotten the slots license.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg Columbus needs a playoff run.  A run into late May would change the town.

Horrible business operators.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg Nationwide owns the entire city of Columbus. If Nationwide ever collapses, so will Columbus.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg Nationwide Arena is legit, too.  Solid place to watch a game.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg The in-game entertainment makes Ryan Mill look great. They dropped burritos from the rafters.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg They had a live band. They were as bad as you could imagine.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg A cannon goes off after every goal. So weird.

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fw7iF68JR8k/TMI97_39dlI/AAAAAAABbek/o4WUxdkJBuw/golddot.jpg Finally, thanks to everyone representing with Charlie signs and shit.  It was hilarious walking out of there seeing Charlie signs littered on the ground.  If you took a pic with us, e-mail it in.

Here are some late-arriving stunned pics:

What is she doing with a guy wearing his hat like that?
Epic finger with the thumb at 90 degrees.
 

This should sum up the rest:

The "Mason" chant was incredible.

Sick rendering of the Winter Classic:

This artist is clearly expecting unlimited Caps fans. But it would make sense since the Caps were given the most tickets in the history of a winter classic for an away team.

Speaking of the caps. AO had a little trip this weekend too:
