The Florida Road Trip, basically it’s the same road trip the players took their dads on a couple weeks ago except in reverse.   This one may require some planning.  On Friday night January 13th the Penguins play the Florida Panthers in Sunrise Florida.  On Sunday January 15th they play the Tampa Bay Lightning at 1PM.

Here is what PenguinPoop recommends:  Fly in Ft.Lauderdale Friday morning, check into a hotel.  Go watch the game and stay over night.  The next morning drive 2 hours to the Gulf Coast and enjoy the afternoon at the beach and stay overnight.  Sunday morning wake up and drive 2 hours to Tampa Bay for Sunday’s 1PM game and Fly back to the ‘burgh Sunday night.  

Florida Tickets:  $20.00 a piece and up

This is a perennial favorite of every Pittsburgh Penguin fan. You can’t go wrong with a Pittsburgh Penguins Jersey. Unless you pick the wrong size, or if you pick a player that now plays for the Flyers, or if they already have that jersey or if…..

We recommend picking a player that has been around for a while and is signed for a few more years…  Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Letang, Fleury, Orpik are the favorites.

 Let’s say you have Philadelphia Flyers fans for friends.  Obviously you no longer wish to have them as friends.  Adding a door mat and door knocker to the front of your abode wards off Flyer fans as they are unable to step on the mat or use the knocker. I also recommend heavy use of garlic and to never ever invite a Flyer fan into your residence because once you do they will never leave.. 

NHL Pittsburgh Penguins Medallion Door Mat $25.12
Pittsburgh Penguins Door Knocker $48.49
