The Roaming Penguins Have Begun to Land

The Penguins have started Roaming! Where did the first one land? Why, in Oklahoma...

...the new home of good Friend of The Show Cassie G.:

When I posted yesterday, I completely forgot about the Sidney Crosby/Tom Welling comparisons. So with a nod to Friend of The Show Pensgirl for mentioning this weeks ago, I've put the two of them side-by-side for you today so you can again judge for yourself:

Now for some random stuff from several Friends of The Show to help you get through another hockey-less weekend. First up, a few days ago, Seth from Empty Netters posted that the Pens' website was the tenth item in the list when the word "Pittsburgh" was searched. For funsies, I decided to see what came up on the first page when "Sidney Crosby" was Googled. I got the shock of a lifetime:


After reading a couple of posts on and from last week, Friend David H. made these "inspirational" posters (I couldn't decide which I liked better so I'm posting them both):

Friend Jan M. took this photo of Sid...

...and turned it into this:

Jan also sent in a link to a gallery of Sid pictures on Canoe—Slam. Hahaha, you gotta love that grin on his face as an underage Sid signs that woman's, um, "shirt". (← Is that what they're calling them these days? :P) And make sure you check out the caption below the picture of Sid with his mouth bloodied (5th row, 3rd pic) - what a difference a year makes, eh???

Our Friend Tony F. of The Confluence of The Three Rivers gives us the scoop on Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony for the Pens' new arena.

Friend PensFan_87 submitted a free-handed drawing of the Pens' vintage logo that was used for their Winter Classic uniforms:

Now for TSCS's Quote of The Day:
"Hockey captures the essence of Canadian experience in the New World. In a land so inescapably and inhospitably cold, hockey is the chance of life, and an affirmation that, despite the deathly chill of winter, we are alive."
