He shoots…and scores!

Analogies, we all love them.  They tend to help each of us understand things and/or provide humor.   And what is better than a hockey analogy, especially one from the legendary Mike Lange to help Jen and I announce the next great phase for our family? So, if you haven’t gotten it yet from the […] Full article →

[FLOWPLAYER=http://www.wjfuoco.com/movies/consol-energy-center/ConsolEnergyCenter.flv,480,360]     So folks, if you know me, you know me, my Dad, brother, & a few other guys went on a private tour of the new home to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Consol Energy Center on Friday, July 9th.

http://www.youtube.com/v/hDsK5HH-K3c&hl=en_US&fs=1&border=1 In today’s (12/16/2009) Post-Gazette, Ron Cook, a sports columnist, wrote an op-ed titled “Penguins win this round with a knockout”.  As always from Ron, a well written article.  However, I completely disagreed with his thesis.  At least to me, Ron’s entire point was that hockey fights are “barbaric” and takes away from a great […] Full article →

Again and again, Pittsburgh proves itself, whether it had to or not.  Pittsburgh’s going to host the G20 this fall (talk about big time world stage!) and then the Steelers win a record 6th SuperBowl and the Pens bring back the Cup!  Talk about making some good news………so good that it even drowns out the […] Full article →

Once again, the Flyers shoot themselves in the foot.  With about 3 minutes left in the 1st OT, the Flyers send 2 men to the box to give the Pens a 5-3 Power Play.  Leave it to newly acquired Bill Guerin to score his 2nd goal of the playoffs and his 2nd goal of the […] Full article →

This is going to be brief, for many reasons, 1 being I only have a few minutes left in my lunch and 2, I’m too mad to get too detailed right now! If you haven’t heard yet, NBC won’t allow the Pens to broadcast Game 3 on the large outdoor video screen set up outside […] Full article →

Yes folks, it’s that time of year again … when men of all ages don’t shave (or at least have a valid reason not to), when these same men can be caught crying walking out of the very arena they walked into with shorts on, and more blood will be found on the respective playing […] Full article →

Some of you are probably reading this and thinking “hmm, I wonder why he says ‘most humble'”, others: “HA!  Not true!”, and still others are thinking: “That’s right we are!”.  So for those that are not in the latter group, here me out … Pittsburgh is indeed known as the City of Champions, indisputable unless you live […] Full article →

The Pens Mr. Good Wing

Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had a article in the PG Sports section today, Hunt continues for Crosby’s winger, regarding what most of Pittsburgh and Crosby followers have been wondering now for almost 3 years: When will Sid get a winger?

Pens Struggle

So the Pens fell out of the Conference Playoff outlook this past week. They’ve lost 13 of their past 19 games, and nothing’s changed. Maybe nothing should? Maybe they just need to endure and consistent winning will beging again tomorrow with the Flyers (23-10-9, 3rd Place), Washington (27-13-3, 2nd Place) on Wednesday, and Anaheim (22-17-5, […] Full article →

What better way to say Happy New Year than to post a tribute video to Mario Lemieux? Twenty years ago last night, Lemieux made history unlikely to ever be repeated, he scored 5 goals, 5 different ways! Can you name all 5 ways without watching the video first? http://www.youtube.com/v/BHOf4y7t0dc&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&hl=en&feature=player_embedded&fs=1 […] Full article →

Pens New Video

Well, the P-E-N-S started up the 2008-2009 season last weekend in Stockholm. Went 1-1 vs. the Sens. Kind of a sloppy 2 games, really early start for both teams.
