Thanksgiving at Pensblog

What many people don't know about Thanksgiving is that after the Pilgrims and Indians had a delicious meal, they played a grueling 2-overtime thriller with the Indians winning 4-3, on Chief Triple Deke's second goal of the game.
Mario Lemieux was the referee.

Chief Triple Deke and little known Pilgrim at the time Gordie Howe were named MVP's of the first Thanksgiving game.

The wager on the game was that whoever won would assume the rights to the land.
Wow, the white man going back on his word...
Michael Richards will have fun with that.

But in the true spirit of Thanksgiving, here is what we are truly thankful for:
  • Mario Lemieux
  • Sidney Crosby
  • Evgeni Malkin
  • Student rush
  • Hot girls
  • Heroes
  • Arby's
  • AOL Instant Messenger

  • The 2006-07 Flyers being a joke.

  • The Mellon Arena
  • Sudden Death
  • Jagr (before his "dying alive" quote)
  • Kevin Stevens before and after his drug problems
  • Ulf
  • Ron Francis
  • Frank Pietrangelo's save on Petr Stastny
  • Tom Barasso's performance in Game 3 against the Blackhawks in 1992

And lastly, we are thankful for our readers.
We cannot thank you enough.
Coming up with this stuff for the blog is fun, but it's nice to laugh with other people rather than by ourselves at 2:00 in the morning.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there, unless you're not a Penguins fan. In that case, we hope you choke on dry stuffing and your brother bangs your wife.

Finally, a little known fact is that turkey was not even eaten at the first Thanksgiving.
They ate venison and duck.
Don't ask how we know; we just do.
