Perhaps it's just semantics to others, but when I heard Tim Benz interviewing O'Connor on Tuesday, here's the quote from BOC that made me chuckle.......
"I know you all love those Penguins......"
"Those" Penguins? Not "our" Penguins?
He could have just as well said, "Those damn Penguins, I wish I didn't have to deal with this crap."
Stoosh is right--clearly they didn't expect this level of support. They probably wish it were still football season.
That being said, while things get slightly more encouraging by the day, we can't let up the pressure until the ink is dry on an arena deal, no matter who ends up building it. I've encouraged as many of my relatives back home in PA as I can, to make a stink about this with their legislators. I encourage everyone else to do the same.
If the pressure continues unabated, those politicians may demand the Three Amigos get this done and soon, just to get us off their backs if nothing else.
