Benstonium released a new sort of promo for game 5 Friday night...
Today we received an open letter from some fellow Penguins fans down in Brazil...
It’s probably a surprise and hard to consider a letter from Brazilian fans. We don’t even have ice to play. What would we know about anything? But we are truly die hard fans, that despite of all adversity that comes with being a Brazilian Penguins fan, we love it and are proud of it. Don’t mind the different time zone, which we often find ourselves going to bed way past the time we should, or the language barrier, that we have to overcome every game broadcast or simply every time we want to look up our team’s latest news; or even the fact that we have to watch every game in the internet. None of that is an excuse to miss a game. It’s all worth after a win, or just a well played game, where everyone left everything on the rink.
The Penguins have never abandoned us, they took the ice every single night scheduled, we’re not abandoning them right now.
We’re not here to say the obvious about our sloppy defensive play, or that we will riot if we don’t win game 4. We are here to say we believe in you. Every single one of you, From Marc-Andre Fleury to Craig Adams. We know you can put last three games on the past, and play what you guys are capable of. We’ve been to tough situations before, losing two to Washington and Detroit, coming back from a 3-0 deficit against those same flyers in game 6, all of those in 09. This one might be a little harder, but if there’s a team in the NHL that can do it, it’s you guys.
We believe you can win 4 in a row against the Flyers, in fact, we believe you can win 10 in a row against those suckers. As long as you guys play with your hearts. Know that we’ll be cheering with our hearts until the last second, whether is game 4 or game 7.
WE BELIEVE! DO IT!!
Today is the day we have been waiting for since early December when we had learned that the concussion like symptoms had returned and that there was actually more of an injury than was originally let on last January. Today is the day we will once again get the chance to see the best player in hockey take the ice once again and dazzle us with his magic. Today is the day we get to see such a player center the Sesame Street line of Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy. Now I know we were all hoping and thinking that they would put Staal and Crosby on the same line, but at this current point in time it doesn't look like that is going to happen, who knows this could only be a let's get him some ice time and see what happens type of game... only time will tell. One thing we do know for certain is that every one will be cringing with every hit he takes for the next several games.
Yeah I know this is a website about hockey, and if you have a problem with us talking about basketball tough shit because we really don't care. Anyways our friends over at This is Getting Old are holding a March Madness tournament and the winner will receive a WBS Mario Lemieux bobble head. For more details click here.
If you happened to catch the post game last night you would have seen and more importantly heard one Jeremy Roenick blame Kris Letang for the hit he received from Eric Nystrom that knocked him from the game in the first period. Benstonium took this and came up with another winner with "My Thought" - by Jeremy Roenick
