As a lifetime resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I’d like to take this moment to express my happiness at learning that the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey organization will be staying in the city. Thank you to Mario Lemieux and the countless others who put forth both effort and patience in making this deal a reality. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read a little bit about the outcome of this long ordeal here. I grew up in a family that followed hockey closely, and I loved watching Lemieux and company win two Stanley Cup championships for the city of Pittsburgh in the early 90s. I’m glad that I’ll be able to see more hockey in this city! Let’s go Pens!
