Big Lead Sports Bar

NICE COVER


It's a big Wednesday in Pittsburgh sports, what with national letter of intent day already underway for college football (an updated list of Pitt signees here) and the aforementioned basketball Backyard Brawl tonight, featuring a WVU crowd attempting wholesale civility. It certainly is nice to dream.

But I'll start the day with a nice pic of Sid on the cover of the SI Olympic preview, making him the second Penguin in team history to grace that magazine's front for Olympic reasons. And if this installment of Olympic hockey is as compelling as the 2002 version, we're all in for a treat beyond magazine covers.

NickDawg said...

love sid and all but GO USA!!

The Abiding Dude said...

agree'd Dawg....go USA. Hope Sid isn't burning Miller like he torched him the other nght.

Can't wait for some curling...i love that event more than anyone should

Koz said...

My sentiments are with NickDawg.

If USA is down and out, I'll pull for Geno and Sid... and I hope each has a good tournament, even if their teams don't win.

In Pens/Olympics news, I'm disappointed Scuderi isn't being talked about to replace one of the injured American defensemen. Seems like ole Ryan Whitney is getting more buzz than The Piece. I have a lot of faith in Brian Burke though, so we'll just have to see.

I would pay top dollar for a Scuds US olympic jersey

Clint Pitts said...

Just wondering...when it inevitably comes down to Russia vs. Canada for the gold, who are Pens fans rooting for to win?

Nice!

Did anybody check out the ridiculous rant on Rumbunter concerning the timing of the Lemieux offer to buy Pirates leak?

Some people really just dont get it.

There is some legend who's handle is PGH Tax Payer complaining about how his taxes are going to the arena.

Remind how PNC Park has been funded?

Clint,

Canada. I can't root for Ovechkin, sorry Geno.

NickDawg said...

if USA is not in the final and its canada vs USSR... uh sorry Russia... I would defintely pull for the canucks. Canada is basically the USA with just kinder and nicer people and I cant stand ovechkin

however I think USA may upset some teams and medal..GO USA

Sid is great but I'm pulling for USA!

Anyone know where I can get a Orpik USA jersey. Saw one at the Pens game last week but couldn't catch up with the guy to ask where he got it.

Abiding Dude, I love curling as well! How can you not love the sweeper dudes! One olympic sport they should add, snowmobile trick jumping. Only reason I watch the X games.

I will cheer for USA until they are out and then default to Canada until they are oot. After that, i could care less. I am a xenohpobe,clearly.

I am def in the market for an Orpik shersey.

SI Cover? We'll, there goes the scoring race for Sid. Let's just hope he makes it through the season in one piece and has a decent playoffs.
