If you've given up, get out...

Postby topshelf on Fri Jun 07, 2013 7:44 am

I'm calling us all out. All of us. Myself included.

We're Pens fans, and now more than ever we need to be exactly that.

Does being down 0-3 suck? Hell yes. Is it frustrating? Of course.

But we're Pens fans, and that means we need to support this team to the bitter end.

I was first exposed to the Penguins and hockey when I was about 6 years old in early 1989. My dad was a paramedic for the city of Pittsburgh and the Pens held a practice where the city workers were invited to attend. It was love at first sight.

Ever since then, the Pens have been an integral part of my life. I've cried the tears of joy, and I've loathed the bitter moments. I watched in awe as Mario Lemieux performed his many on-ice miracles, and I've endured the likes of Rico Fata and Kris Beech. To me, wearing the black and gold is a badge of honor, even if we're in the bottom of the rankings. Pens games in my household are a family affair, and hockey talk dominates the conversation annually from October until June. Everyone from my grandmother down through my son (19 months old today!) supports this team, regardless of whether or not we are down 0-3 or we're hoisting the Cup.

We're Pens fans. We're all Pens fans.

Let's all support this team as if tonight's the last game we'll watch in a while. Wear your black and gold. Share your story. Cheer until you lose you're blue in the face.

I love this team.

Let's Go Pens!

I'll respond with the same message that DVE Mario gave to the fans who lined up at 9am to get a seat at the big screen to watch the game:

I guess I'll just have to wait until next year to post in PR since I don't think they can come back, but it's been done 3 times in all of NHL history, so who's to say the pens can't do it? One game at a time, just win.

This is quite the reach, but...

They're 1 win away from a game at home (not that that meant anything in games 1 & 2, but still...)
Then 1 home win away from forcing a Boston "must-win" in Game 6.

Simple as that. :o

We DID win 15 straight, a lot of them without a full lineup, so who's to say we can't take 4 in a row here?

Is there a team better suited to the reverse sweep than the 2013 Pittsburgh Penguins? At one point in the season they won 15 straight games. They hold the top 2 longest winning streaks in NHL history.

They are playing one of only 3 teams to lose after being up 3-0, and could be the first team in NHL history to both win a series being down 3-0, and lose a series after being up 3-0.

BELIEVE!

Two of those 15 were against the Bruins. :thumb:
