Wherever you stand on this unseasonably warm Janurary night. We're with you.
If your on the ledge because you can't take it anymore.
We feel you.
Quietly optimistic because you thing the Pens are safe.
We hope so too.
If your tired of the worrying, and need to step away.
We don't blame you.
But if you think Pens fans will go quietly into the summer.
We are dropping the gloves, and ready to dance.
Fact of the matter it was another day of torturing for Pens fans.
But for the first time in awhile, we have a glimmer of hope.
Now this wasn't shocking, but merely surreal.
Its got worse as Kansas city offered this.
"They have told us they will make a decision within 30 days," Leiweke said. "We will know within 30 days whether they are going to work out their issues in Pittsburgh and get an arena built, or whether they will ask the NHL for permission to move the team to Kansas City."-Tim Leiweke, president of Anschutz Entertainment Group
Did anyone know that Luc Robitaille is apart of the group trying to bring the Pens, or any team to KC? We had no clue.
Luc you broke our hearts.
Add another enemy to Pensblog.
But finally we got some hope, if only a little.
After a 90 minute meeting
We heard this from Mario.
"I'm optimistic with the meeting we had today,"-Mario Lemieux
Mario also called it a positive sit down.
Rendell said this:
“When you factor in the tremendous fan base here and the fact that hockey has failed in Kansas City, I think we will beat it,” Rendell
( Thanks to commentor Seth)
Bottom line is this.
Our hopes, hearts, and collective minds ride with Ed Rendell, Luke Ravenstahl, and Dan Onorato tonight.
Recap coming later tonight.
