Russian Penguin Fans

I saw these guys at the Wach on Tuesday, but didn't realize they were from Russia.

Wish I would have welcomed them to America, and explained to them that all people in Philly aren't jagoffs. Just the ones that grew up here. :)

RJ do you have any ties with these guys? http://www.letsgopens.ru

Hi from Russia :)

May be you've seen I'd posted here sometimes also I read the board regularly and also some fans from Russia too. Me and Evgeny Mikheev are founders of www.letsgopens.ru. He brought the idea to create the Russian Penguin web-site six years ago then done all necessary things to establish the site. By the way as I know six years ago Evgeny connected with the founders of www.letsgopens .com to ask permission to use the name of the site :) Later I joined him to translate and write articles for the site. Now I do the most part of site’s content and Evgeny does the things to develop the site. We’ve always dreamed to visit Pittsburgh but I couldn’t travel there this time. I hope I’ll be able to do it next season. I’m very glad the Penguins recognize closer about Russian Pens fans. All things mentioned in PPG article are true including the girlfriends :)

I met these dudes tonight at the game. I recognized them from the pictures in the PG. They seemed like really nice guys. One even had a #71 Malkin Penguin jersey on. Anyway i only talked to them for a couple minutes (mostly about their trip to WBS this weekend) but it was really cool. It really drove home how much of an international draw the NHL is. If you guys are reading this, i hope you enjoyed your trip. And please, beg, bribe, even extort the folks at Metallurg Mg to let Malkin go.

The Pens are just an afterthought. The only reason they came here is to check out Station Square, Pittsburghs #1 tourist attraction. :roll: :twisted:

Hello again and ATTENTION please!

As you know from paper articles the Russian Pens fans are trying to reach Wilkes-Barre to attend Baby Pens game. But today they couldn't take a bus in Pittsburgh to travel there because there are some problems with buses. Right now they are at 2nd Avenue Grayhound Bus Station don't know how to reach WB. Please if anybody or anybody's friends or relatives or anyone else can deliver them to WB then go there and please help them. You will be presented with Russian Penguins Support Crew T-Shirt, gratituds and hugs, money and stuff like that. Evgeny Mikheev's number there is 646 3012603. Please call him if you have possibility to help Russian fans.

Thank you
RusPenMario

I'll do it for an AK-47...

(While meant as a joke... it's actually not as I would love to have an AK-47)

What's wrong with the busses? If I was able to get out of work, I would actually do this for you right now. I bet we could fit in my truck (ext cab) and put the bags in the bed. Budgets are due so I can not leave... my old job... I'd already be gone.

I just reread the article in the paper: ""I don't really like Ovechkin," Tretiakov said. "He's a one-way player.""

It's a beautiful thing!
