way back in February, I told the wife I wanted to buy a motorcycle. She said, well, up yours. I suggested a bet. If the Pens (and you know where they were in February) won the Cup, I could get one. Deal.Well, say hello to my brand spankin new 2009 Triumph Bonneville. With a Pens logo on the side cover. And yea, I picked the bike color because it matched the Pens colors as close as they make it. Hey, enjoy whats left of the Woo-ness. Training camp on the way soon. Keep up the great work.
Rick city has the week off. We're still in whatev mode.
One more week and then the fun begins.
Good story from reader "Death By Emu"
Thanks to [Pens Universe] for sending this in.
Thought a Red Wings blogger would be all over this. But that would require them to stop crying.
From the EA SPORTS DEMO:
P.S. We have a brand new page for those interested in the EASHL.
Both PS3 and Xbox will be updated throughout the season. We now even have a dreaded Message board.
It is up in the top bar.

Totally forgot to talk about it.

It needed its own jump. So make the jump or this guy will come after you.
"I was at the Columbus Clippers game (the Cleveland Indians AAA affiliate) in Columbus, Ohio on August 14th. At this game Hacksaw Jim Duggan not only threw out the first pitch (a strike) but he was signing autographs throughout the game. Somewhere around the 6th inning and my 5th beer I decided that 24 was not too old to stand in line and get an autograph from an American legend.
When I got up to Hacksaw he asked me who I wanted the autograph made out to. I said, "Could you possibly write 'Go Pens'?" He looked at me like I was an idiot, which is probably appropriate. Anyway, I told him about his almost cult-like following among Penguins fans due to your site and how his picture was a go to picture before games. He told me he was not aware of it but that he was flattered and would definitely check out the site to see for himself. He asked me for the name of the site twice so hopefully he remembers. He also thought it was hilarious. So, he did sign my picture "Go Pens" only he had already written "To" when he asked for my name, so technically it says "To Go Pens" but it's close enough.
All in all he seemed very happy to have a following in such a random fanbase and was an extremely nice guy. Naturally after he signed we took a picture together giving the thumbs up which is probably the single greatest accomplishment of my life."
