Wtf? I could look at this uni all day! I think it's hott! I wish the Steelers had this as their retro uni instead. I love everything about it- the stripe down the pant leg, the number, the sleeves... it's classic.
Lame outfit: Steelers
Um, me, bitch. I own a Roethlisberger throwback. I don't wear it anymore, though, because all three times I did, we lost. That jersey is cursed and I will probably never wear it again. I wore it when I watched the Colts and Chargers play in the AFC playoffs last year. Being from San Diego, naturally I was rooting for Peyton and the Colts since I hate the Chargers. Guess what, the Chargers won that game, damnit, thus further proving that my throwback jersey is cursed. That's 60 dollars I will never get back... I never really thought the throwback uni was brown, more like dark navy/black. And our throwback helmets are sickkkkk. Love them, hater. Of course I like our regular uniforms better; they are one of the best unis in the league! They scream dominance and who doesn't love hypocycloids?
So, which is it, hypocrite? Do you like them or not?
I'm gonna go with 2nd coolest with the 1st being the Jets/Titans. Tampa's throwbacks remind me of vintage USC. Love it. Too bad they don't get to wear their's this year.

Few pages in we see a hot guy sporting Pens gear. Ok, I like it. I like that hoodie too; I would prefer my made-up bf to wear that.. kthxbai.
Hate to say it, but he looks even hotter in this San Jose Sharks t-shirt. Damn, he makes the Sharks look hott.
Again, how can we make this page look more appealing and not repulsive? Stick Sidney in there! Voilà!
And finally, that brings us to the "Original Retro Brand Pittsburgh Penguins Heathered T-shirt"
This one was not featured in the catalog (probably for the reasons stated below), but it's on the NHL Shop website.
"Don't mind me, I'm kind of a douche but you'll love me in this t-shirt!"
He kind of screams jackass, but I'd probably date him if he stopped using all that hair gel, shaved that ridiculous thing he calls facial hair and wore that shirt all the time.
To look at the whole catalog, click here.
Pens against the Coyotes tomorrow. The Coyotes are not the worst team in the league despite their off-season woes. Good for them. I no longer feel sorry for them and therefore, will not cut them any slack during this game.

Ben threw for 333 yards, had 2 touchdowns, and no interceptions.
It's mentioned that Dan Potash's name should be on the cup. We fully support that notion here at SoCal Black 'N gold.
Just want to comment on a few things from the Isles' game.
The hit on Feds might have been clean, but it was still big and I'm not surprised to see our guys stand up for him. Malkin kind of brushed by to show his discontent since he is not really a fighter, nor is Pascal but he got in there a little bit. One of my fav newbies to the team, Jay McKee, really stepped up and showed his support by dropping the gloves. Paul and Bob tell us McKee is out for the rest of the game with an instigator penalty. Fail. Turns out he only got slapped with a 10 minute misconduct which is good for us because we were committing a TON of penalties in this game, consecutively right after another which was killing us. No wonder Tavares scored, they had about 3 or 4 Power Plays in a row. At one point it was 5 on 3 because McKee was serving his misconduct, Billy G stepped into the penalty box to serve for McKee, and Rupp and Malkin were already in there.
Third period we got our shit together and played really well. It would have been awesome if Brooksie had got that goal, but it's ok, we still love him. We came out and played more aggressive in the third period and I was really pleased with the effort put forth. Mark Eaton's goal was sweet. Too bad it was short-lived as the Islanders got one past Fleury to take the lead once more. I will say that throughout the entire game, MAF played like a champion. We already know he is one, but he was making crazy saves as if it were the playoffs. Chill MAF, you do know this is only the second game of the season and that it's against the Islanders, right? Still, it's nice to see that level of commitment regardless.
I thought Kris played exceptionally well. Alex was really sloppy during one of his shifts and I was about ready to scream at the tv for Danny Balls to get Tangers in there to save us all. Luckily for Goligoski, others like Billy G came to his rescue and steered the puck away. I don't know the totals for the night, but I'm sure Kris had a decent amount of blocked shots and he was getting fiesty towards the end of the game. I liked it. He had a nice hit on someone too. Hopefully we'll get to see more of that this season. I know he wasn't big on hitting guys last year because of his shoulder.
Islanders get a PP with a little over two minutes to go and you're just like fffffffff. We hold on for OT. No one scores. It's time for a shootout. MAF totally denies two attempts, one of them coming from the new Crosby, Tavares. Kris comes up with a big score and Sid buries in in the back for the win.
It's a good day to be a Pens fan.

We all knew the second line had a vacant spot to be filled beside Malkin and Feds and now it's official that Pascal Dupuis will fill Maxie's spot while he's still out recovering from his off-season shoulder surgery.
It's ok Max, you are so good looking, it really doesn't matter what you wear. I think I speak for all of us female Pens fans when I say that. I dare you to disagree.
