I just finished watching the Flyers vs Calgary game on the DVR (it started at 9pm because they were in Canada).

Man, that was a maddening game, but the Flyers did win in the shootout...

Man, Brzygalov is just a terrible goalie...

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby has been cleared for contact in practice, the team announced Tuesday.

This is good for hockey to have him back on the ice.

Yes, good to hear that.

Unfortunately, I do not think Chris Pronger will be back - not ever, likely. He's not doing good at all.

That is to bad.  I have always liked Pronger even when he left St. Louis.

Yes, he is having trouble just functioning at home, day by day. At 38 and with these problems, I do not think he will ever play again.

But - I just got outbid on a autographed Max Talbot jersey  :facepalm:

The jerseys worn by all the players for that charity event I went to (2 or so weeks ago) are up for bid. They are also all autographed by the player. I put a bid in over a week ago - but I figured it wouldn't stay at the base price. Auctions end in 2 days. Sure enough - the prices are cranking up. $250 was all I was gonna spend.

No, never got into any sports cards.

I do like autographed items, however. The jerseys are my fav - but they are expensive. Gotta buy the jersey (which costs some $, and then get it signed. And, the damn frames to hang them up are almost $200.

I have my Giroux hung up, but the 2nd frame came in damaged. I sent it back, and the replacement should be in tomorrow. Then I can hang up that Jagr jersey. I also like signed pics and pucks.

This is that Signed Giroux jersey...



Normally I don't buy anything signed - no matter what certificate of authenticity someone has - I will always wonder if it was REALLY signed by the person.

The exception was this particular jersey I was bidding on. All the player jerseys from that day has a special patch on the front for the charity event. And, they are being auctioned by the Flyers Wives, which is the group that puts on that carnival I went to in order to meet the players. Plus, the signature looks just like the two items I had signed by Talbot at the carnival. 

But, I won't go any higher than $250. I have $600 left. By the time I would get the jersey AND another frame, it would take most of that $. I'll just sit on that $600. I may use it towards another trip to Phili next year

That G jersey looks great!  I was impressed with Bryz in that Caps game, he looked really solid!

Thanks. I tried hanging it up with the sleeves down, but it didn't look right. I still have the tags on it, so one sleeve is heavier than the other. I had to end up putting it with the sleeves behind the jersey to make it balance right
