I, unfortunately, did not get to see the Pens vs. Islanders game. Glad to see they won. 2-0 is nice way to start.
I was listening to Mark Madden on the 105.9, the X, the other day and he threw and interesting question out to his listeners. He asked everyone which opposing team do they now hate the most. It is interesting because, as Penguin fans, we have invested a ton of energy in hating teams like the Flyers and Rangers. These are division rivals forever so naturally, there will be disdain there. In more recent years, it seems Detroit and Washington deserve a bit more of our hatred. Back to Back Stanley Cup Finals match-ups with the Red Wings and the pathetic way they dealt with losing (wah wah, Crosby didn’t shake Lidstrom’s hand, wah wah), have created a lot of loathing towards them. All the hype about Ovechkin ,comments made by Semin, and a growing rivalry have led to more animosity towards the Capitals.
I would like to know what all of you out there are thinking. Who are the teams you most like to hate?
