Done Deal

The gust of wind you felt this morning was Pittsburgh hockey fans breathing a collected sigh of relief, as the Penguins have worked out a deal that will keep the team here for another 30 years:

"An official announcement is expected at a 5pm news conference at Mellon Arena -- just before the Pens take the ice against the Buffalo Sabres."
-KDKA

It's great news, to be sure. And now, thankfully, the local newscasts will finally be able to turn their attention toward retrospectives that focus on great moments at the Civic Arena like the Sinatra concerts, the Elvis concerts, and that one time when Jean Claude Van Damme totally kicked the shit out of Iceburgh the Penguin.

I never saw the movie with the Muscles from Brussels, but maybe I'll watch it the day they implode Mellon Arena.

That is an OUTSTANDING idea. If only we could get a local establishment to play it on a large-screen TV the weekend before...
