Awesome! Man how putrid was that '83-'84 team?? Oh well, it got us Mario.
Welcome to the board.
Bloody horrid, I was pinned down at the age of 9 for my fav team... and everyone else was a Leafs, Habs, Oilers or Islanders fan back then. I always loved the underdogs so seeing the Pens in last made it an easy choice, and got the weird looks I was looking for haha
I'm new. I live in Vermont, but go to school in MA. I try to watch as many games as possible but the Wifi here operates on a scale from bad to horribad so needless to say I miss a few games here and there. Mark Eaton needs to go away and Joe Vitale needs to give Tanner Glass smallpox blankets.
Thought this would be the best place to put this, I'm not new to HF but new to the Pens. I started following them since Malkin came into the league (my favorite player in hockey, just a real treat to watch) but now I'm closey following the Pens. I was born and raised in St. Louis so the Blues are my number one team but I've picked up the Pens as my second.
I downloaded the Pens app and have listed to the 24x7x365 Pens radio constantly and really enjoy the team. So I finally decided to embrace my Pens love and purchased a Malkin jersey and will be getting Center Ice next season so I can see every game.
Due to being raised in St. Louis the Blues are still my number one team but after I graduate college next year my fiancé and I have been talking about moving to Pittsburgh (nothing's for sure yet). Since my coming out as Pens fan, while still being a Blues fan, I've been labled a bandwagoner by my cirlce of friends simply because I now like the Pens. I try to explain about how it's due to the playing style, my man crush on Malkin and how I just like Pittsburgh as a city but to no avail.
Anyway, just wanted to drop a note here, as I'm always on the Blues board, and say how much I enjoy this team and Go Pens!
Saw candyman post this earlier and thought it was a fun idea so i'll just go ahead and steal it, with some small modifies

Been lurking for some years and just love the board and everyone on here! Not my native language so bear with me on the spelling part.
What's up everyone? Long time hockey fan from Pittsburgh. I recall taking the bus from Pitt to the Civic Arena and scalping tickets for $5. The arena was empty and you could pretty much sit anywhere you wanted. Of course a win was very rare in those days.
Anyway, I wanted to join the fray here and put my .02 where it probably doesn't belong.
Hi guys! Yes, you can say i have jumped into bandwaggon, but i have watched few games on my computer and im pretty amazed by great performance by team un the atmosfrere in ''Energy center'', it just took me into this team. Im asking you guys, where should i start, when watching ''Penguins''? My favorite player here is Malkin, i even went to game in Riga, when he visited us with Metalurg Magnitagorsk and his overall performance in KHL was just monsterous,young prospects and ''Pens'' history? I wanna know about lineups, strategies etc.
p.s - i have learned in these days, that i shold hate ''Flyers'' and ''Bruins'', am i righ?
