I had a great time with some great Pens fans...and I love the shirt!
@ozzy (lone Devils fan)
The trip was actually quite short. After landing in Pitt I spent about 2 hrs in the Courtyard until Ryan (@kicksavetwenty) picked me up and we headed over to the TGIFriday's in Robinson, PA.
From there I drank some beer, ate some wings, fellowshiped with quality Pens fans, and watched the place ERUPT after Malkin scored the game winner in OT. It was great not being the minority in Raleigh for once. Oh, and I won a cool VS mini helmet, some nerf-type pucks for the kiddies, and a hat. @superfro432 has a few pics I'll post once he gets them to me. I really didn't snap everything as some might have expected (even demanded). Sorry peeps.
I can't wait to go back next year and spend some time in the final year of Mellon Arena.
I once again want to thank the 22 people who sponsored me for the NHLTweetup. I'll be having the drawing for the Pens T-shirt next Monday...cross your fingers.
And if you'd like to know where I got this sweet shirt, its courtesy of the guys at Hockey T Shirt. Visit them, buy their shirts...good peoples.
