Props for Mario From a Fellow Athlete

Postby Mad City Mike on Tue Feb 14, 2006 10:14 am

Sean casey goes to bat for Mario in today's PG.

"As an athlete who has given back to the community and one who grew up in Pittsburgh, is there someone here with whom you can identify?

Casey: Well, we all know and appreciate the great work Mario Lemieux has done with the local hospitals, especially with cancer research. He's a giant in our city, and he was a great player on top of that. I loved going to the Igloo as a kid to watch him play."

Do you know what I like best out of that quote...

"Casey: Well, we all know and appreciate the great work Mario Lemieux has done with the local hospitals, especially with cancer research. He's a giant in our city, and he was a great player on top of that. I loved going to the Igloo as a kid to watch him play."

I love how he is embracing the city. I know its his hometown but hes lived in Cincy for so long. He is going to be such a great impact in our locker room.
