On Thursday, November 18th, Art Vandelay and I had a chance to see some Pens in a little off-ice action. Fidelity Bank welcomed Brooks Orpik and Tyler Kennedy to their newest location at new McCandless Crossing development off of McKnight Road in the North Hills.
For the first hour, Orpik and Kennedy mingled with a smaller group of fans in a [...]
In only two major sports, hockey and soccer(and I know some of you do not consider soccer a major sport, but that is a discussion for another day), is there ever an occasion for teams to be playing with an unequal number of participants. In hockey, this occurs when one team is assessed a minor penalty. The offending player is sent to the pen [...]
Starting tomorrow the Pittsburgh Penguins are giving fans a chance to vote on the greatest goal Mario Lemieux ever scored in a video tournament at www.gnc.pittsburghpenguins.com. I have seen Mario’s greatest goals video, the Penguins greatest goals video, I have even seen the Pittsburgh Penguin DVD set that has supposedly the Pittsburgh [...]
Hi again folks. Old Reg has been invisible for a while now. It turns out my day jobs and other responsibilities have been taking over recently. I did want to take a few minutes to jot down a few thoughts I had at this point.
1. It turns out that maybe Sidney Crosby was right about Marc-Andre Fleury. Crosby told reporters that MAF needed [...]
The Penguins enjoyed a fine Thanksgiving weekend picking up four points over two inferior opponents. It wasn’t long ago that they were a game under .500 and wondering when their game would come together. Crosby took the reins and the Penguins found themselves where they belong — near the top of the Eastern Conference. A tw [...]

As the holidays approach, it’s always nice to be reminded that the boys we watch throw big hits and sometimes pummel other players also have big hearts. And, that the team who is throwing advertisements and sponsorships at us right and left, does some good too.
In August, Max Talbot and Mike Rupp visited devastated areas of Haiti with team C [...]
Well, the season is now 20 games in which means that roughly one quarter of it is gone, and so, just like when you were back in school, it is time to issue the first quarter report card for the team, the players and the coach.
The Team: B-
The team has had to make quite a few adjustments this year from welcoming in new players to learning t [...]
Last Thursday morning as I was driving to the gym, I was listening to sports radio. Everyone had all the answers to what went wrong in the third period of the game and none of it sat well with me.
After the gym I went over to see my mother, Estelle Costanza in the hospital. She couldn’t wait to ask me what I thought about the game. I t [...]
Trying to figure out what is wrong with the Penguins is like trying to figure out why people search for the closest parking spot when they go to work out. Ray Shero probably gave up his pension fund for the two new defensive players that were going to be the answer to all of the Penguins problems. He also filled in the offensive gaps with a [...]
