The Pens are staying in the ‘Burgh

I just read about this.  Apparently, a new deal has been reached that would keep the Penguins in Pittsburgh for the next 30 years.  You can read about it here.  Apparently, there will be a press conference with the official announcement today at 5pm.

Normally, I’m not a huge hockey fan.  In fact, I haven’t really paid attention to the Penguins since the mid 90’s.  That said, the Penguins are one of the things that put Pittsburgh on the map.  Losing a major sports team means that your city loses visibility and part of its reputation as a major city.  So, I’m glad that the Penguins will be staying even if I don’t really have any plans to become a devoted fan.

    Hear, hear! Or is it “here, here!” Whichever it is, I’m in total agreement.

    I am so relieved that they have decided to stay. Hockey is the only sport I sort of understand.

    The Pens have pretty much been my life these past few months – but now it’s time to mix in the Pirates a bit. Happy opening day – lets go bucs!
