I remember it was a Friday afternoon... I remember walking saturday morning at north park; everybody busted out their penguin gear. local 1250 radio was still on the air and they talked about the ticket personnel staying till midnight or later. Season tickets from Australia ... winning the lottery was only a step towards becoming a legit hockey franchise. Sid ; his talents, skills, and determination to be the best, was the guy climbing up the mountain and dragging the team along.
As a penguin fan always remember the moment of JOY at the envelope opening on 7/22/05.
