So It Begins

Here's an excerpt from an email from Good Friend of The Show Pensgirl:
Get your jaw ready, it's about to meet the floor. [← snoop: She wasn't lying!]

Here's the caption [given to the photo by the Associated Press]: Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby pushes himself up on his stick during hockey practice in Pittsburgh, Thursday, April 24, 2008.

Here's what I would have captioned it: What ankle injury?
Now, the Pièce de résistance:

My caption? One word: UNREAL.

If you want, you can share your ideas for a caption in the comments section below. (Oh, and make sure you click on the picture to enlarge it - you can see that Sid's playoff beard is starting to get slightly more respectable, LOL!) BIG, BIG thanks to Pensgirl for the awesome picture!!!

This one's for the ladies (well, I suppose the men could vote too...): The radio station B94 is taking a vote to find out who is Pittsburgh's hottest Penguin. Right now
(at 10:23am Eastern), Big Georges Laraque has a COMMANDING lead with 55.5% of the votes. To give you an idea of how big his lead is, the Saint is coming in at second place - with a mere 15.5% of the votes!!! Thanks go to Friend of The Show Amanda P. for the link!!!

And I'll leave you for the day with some more great stuff to get you ready for tonight's game from three of our blogging Good Friends of The Show:
A reminder to my Pittsburgh area Friends: Remember, there's no Pens game tomorrow, so you really need to go to the Pittsburgh Hockey - Celebrities v Pharaohs game. (Click the poster below to enlarge.)

There will be some NHL Legends playing in this game. Go to the Pharaohs' website for more information.

I'm going to do my best to have the recap up by midnight tonight. While most people in my office are saying TGIF, I'm saying TGIHNP!!!! (Thank God It's a Hockey Night in Pittsburgh!)

GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
