so if he didn't save Pens and invest in them, he would not be number 1?? ouch
what i find amazing is i swear to you, i used to play ball hockey with mario when i was 14-15 yrs old, before he was anything.. he lives 5 min from me and me and my buddies. we are the exact same age. we used to bring our sticks (we were englsh) and play his team (they were french) and he was this tall lanky skinny kid who was so quiet and never said a word, but man was he good. we never thought in a million yrs he'd be Super Mario one day. what a nice kid he was. very shy and just kind. and who's to say what he ended up doing.. i never knew one day that kid would grow up one day to own the city of Pittsburgh and be the most popular guy there and turn out to be this legend. had i known, i would've bought him a chocolate bar and tried to have been his pal. i am proud of him and so proud i got to play ball hockey with him.
He does a lot of charity work in the community here which earns him respect of Pittsburghers who may not be hockey fans.
