We survived! Pittsburgh was freaking awesome. There will be full disclosure and lots of photos, but the highlights included:
– Pens Open Practice
1+ hours of puckhandling drills to the tune of twenty little kids chanting “We want a puck!” Letang tossed a puck to us – but it went to the adoring 9 year old birthday girl with the “I Love Letang” sign. What do you mean he was aiming for her?
– Missing Max Talbot at Cheesecake Factory
If we’d joined @rebelheart87 and her crew for lunch, we’d have seen Max at the bar. Instead, we were at the chocolate factory meeting the Chocolate Cup.
– Luxury Box at CONSOL
We know people who know people who are AMAZING and made sure we had the best weekend ever. Chad’s mom, you are a hero.
– Shootout Win
The game was not great (someone, ANYONE go stand in front of the net, eh?!) but a shootout win certainly is exciting!
– Named My Car
I made a promise at the start of OT that if the Pens won, I would name my new car after whoever scored the game-winner. Technically it was Kovalev, but I don’t like him. So I went with James Neal who scored in the 3rd round of shootout to end the game!Tags: pittburgh pengiuns
