How about them Pens?
Everyone counted them out of winning the Stanley Cup, even me. The Pittsburgh Pens have been my favorite hockey team since forever and watching them take home the cup Friday night was perfect! I was all alone in my apartment shouting, "LET'S GO PENS!"
The pens hung in there all six games and when the seventh game came up I thought wow this is going to be a tough game. The pens were out to a slow start, but when Talbot came through with two goals it turned the game around. The pens were quick on the ice and played smart hockey. Fleury, the goalie was amazing! He played the best I have seen him play all six games. When "Sid the Kid" got hurt I thought we were out, but I was wrong. My pens didn't let that get to them. They were more focused and determined to win!
I was so proud of the Pittsburgh Penguins just like all the other fans around the country. Even though the pens were not the predicted team to win, because they are so young, they played with such heart and drive and made all Pittsburgh and little ol' me in Parkersburg oh so PROUD!
