I'm not a Bruins fan. I'm actually not even in the East, but thank god this meme exists to educate me me how off the wall ridiculously sensitive Pens fans are.

I like the history behind both names and that they're pretty unique for sports teams, so I'm okay with it.

And to think I was just making a sarcastic comment on how irrelevant the history of the colors are.

It took me months to determine that "Blues" wasn't ever a nickname for the Blue Jackets. Actually, it took me a month or so to determine they were two different teams in the first place.

That said, individually, they are pretty cool names.

Re: Fandom Venting

I think the Blue Jackets would have been better off if they'd made the Civil War connection more explicitly clear from the get go, but yes, I like local names in general like the Ravens, the Blues, the Pelicans, the Bills, etc.

Well, I'm a Blues fan, so I never had trouble distinguishing, haha. But I can see how it would be confusing for someone who was just starting to follow the league. Especially if you weren't really following either team.

From the WBS-Hershey game, which Hershey won 4-3:
Final stat line for Sestito: 1 goal, 1 elbowing minor, 1 fighting major, 2 misconducts, 2 game misconducts for a total of 47 PIMs

I didn't know you could even get more than one game misconduct. Like. How do you do that?

Confused nonnie above spent quite a long time picturing a blue jacket as an analogue to a yellow jacket - ie, some kind of horrifying wasp, but with blue stripes instead of yellow.

At this point I think it's clear that I am just easily confused. :P

The Bruins actually didn't wear them first for hockey, though - that was part of the discussions. A prior Pittsburgh hockey team called the Pirates used those colors in the 1920s, so Pittsburgh actually had prior use of those colors in the NHL (although not as the Penguins).

Their mascot probably doesn't help with that.

I literally made the first comment which pointed this out upthread, but thank you anyways.

Re: Fandom Venting

Oh my god, I just blanked so hard on the 2nd name that I had to google. I can't believe I forgot the blue jackets existed for a second there...

Re: Fandom Venting

I didn't think this was sensitive. Of course, as a Stars fan, I had to use the " it was x years ago, it's literally old enough to vote. Let it go" argument a lot, already.

which I realize now makes me look like an idiot for saying they wore them first when I really meant they were already wearing them at the time of the switch...sorry I'm tired.

Church of Scientology ad. Well, that's a bold new direction from Discover, Enterprise, Rio Olympics, repeat.

Apparently he got a second game misconduct from the hallway after being ejected for the first one.

All I can say is, I am sooooo glad he's down there in Wilkes-Barre instead of up with the big Pens. DNW.

Part of the Norm Green thing, though, is that a lot of Stars fans seem to take it way too far - dude, one of the reasons the Stars moved was because Norm Green was sexually harassing people and having an affair and his wife said move the team or we're divorcing.

I don't resent that the team was moved, but ffs, stop taunting Minnesota fans with how much you like the dude, Stars fans. Norm Green was a fucking dick.

ah okay I was trying to figure out where I'd misread... sorry for stepping on your toes, I guess!

I'm just happy they didn't get shut-out now

Well, at least it's not a shutout?

no prob, sorry for being salty. I haven't been id-ing myself in this thread and my comment made no sense considering I was the one to bring up the Pirates in the first place lol. My bad.

Re: TV/Movies With Hockey Themes

From: (Anonymous)
Does Bon Cop Bad Cop count? It's a buddy cop movie (lots of Canadian French vs English jokes that mostly work) about them investigating hockey related deaths. Not a lot of hockey games in it but they are investigating the murder of a hockey player and end up involved with hockey politics.
