Best. Weekend. Ever.

28 Mar

We survived!  Pittsburgh was freaking awesome.  There will be full disclosure and lots of photos, but the highlights included:

– Pens Open Practice

1+ hours of puckhandling drills to the tune of twenty little kids chanting “We want a puck!”  Letang tossed a puck to us – but it went to the adoring 9 year old birthday girl with the “I Love Letang” sign.  What do you mean he was aiming for her?

– Missing Max Talbot at Cheesecake Factory

If we’d joined @rebelheart87 and her crew for lunch, we’d have seen Max at the bar.  Instead, we were at the chocolate factory meeting the Chocolate Cup.

– Luxury Box at CONSOL

We know people who know people who are AMAZING and made sure we had the best weekend ever.  Chad’s mom, you are a hero.

– Shootout Win

The game was not great (someone, ANYONE go stand in front of the net, eh?!) but a shootout win certainly is exciting!

– Named My Car

I made a promise at the start of OT that if the Pens won, I would name my new car after whoever scored the game-winner.  Technically it was Kovalev, but I don’t like him.  So I went with James Neal who scored in the 3rd round of shootout to end the game!

    Too bad Letang went first in the shoot out! HA! or your car would have a sweet name! 😉 I would simply assume we would rewrite history and he made it too since he has excellent shoot out percentages.

    Ahhh! That sounds so awesome! 🙂 I’m glad you had a great time. By the way, when I thought I saw you, it wasn’t you…so, I’m glad I didn’t approach those two girls. Haha!

    Yeah. It could have been the Letangmobile instead of the Nealmobile – which still has a bit of a ring to it.

    Bet Mel’s stoked!
