This organization is very in touch with the fan base & seems to understand the Pittsburgh sports landscape very well; they know Pittsburghers are proud about being the only city where all it's pro sports teams wear black & gold. If anything, I think the baby blue will be like the Pirates red, just a third jersey color sort of situation.


I hope you're right. If they switch to the blues full time, I'll be upset. Obviously it won't change my love for the team, but I love the black and gold and the team's good years have been represented by these colors, along with the city. I hate when teams change their whole color scheme. The team has no identity then.

I don't mind the blue as a third jersey. But they better keep the black and gold full time.


It won't change my love for the pens, but I'd probably want to hurt some people.

No piping! Thank goodness - when that rumor popped up, I practically broke out in hives. I wanted a WC jersey last year but never got around to it (I couldn't decide which player to get; still haven't actually).

Crosby would've be the logical choice but I already have his jersey. (I also have an Orpik.) Mostly, I've been trying to choose between Malkin & Fleury. Maybe Whitney. (Staal is under consideration but I have a rule about only buying jerseys for players after they sign a several year deal.)

If I were to get a WC jersey, though I never will, I would get Letang for sure.

I was at Dick's tonight. I took a ton of pictures but was standing in a crappy spot. That's what happens when you have to work. Oh well...it was still a lot of fun. The men's jerseys are $150 - right now they have Crosby, Malkin and Letang (it was hard to walk away from that one). Is it okay to post a picture here or should I just post a link?

Thank God(ard) the NHL didn't do to us what they did to the Sabres and put those ridiculous arched lines down the sides.

And one that shows the back better. I was in a lousy spot and Big Ben's head kept getting in the way.

Damn. Now I need to get one.

I also need to doom a player to being traded or not re-signed, which is what happens to all...2 of the players I have on jerseys.
