REG DUNLOP – Pittsburgh Penguins – PenguinPoop Blog

REG DUNLOP



Phil Krundle and I spent a lot of time conversing, debating and, yes, even arguing about the Penguins.  We used to do it so often that we decided to take our opinions to a new level and start a Penguin blog.  Even with the blog, we still find time for spirited conversations about our beloved team.

I have been a huge Pens fan since I was very young.  I used to cheer for players like Ron Shock and Vic Hadfield.  I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to go to games when I was very young.  In fact, my friend actually got a Rick Kehoe game stick one time because he got hit in the head with a puck.  He had to get stitches, but got the puck and Kehoe’s stick……..a fair trade I should think.

Right now, I stay active playing a lot of Deck Hockey.  It’s pretty much the proverbial beer hockey league, but it is fun and good camaraderie.  I am a season ticket holder; one who is still bitter about how his seats transferred to the new building.  Mostly I can’t complain.  I have been blessed to watch many of the greatest hockey players of all time.
