Penguins Get Ghostly Love on "Ghost Adventures"



So I'm watching Ghost Adventures Friday night on the Travel Channel (I know, another night living life on the edge), and I see that they're in New Castle, of all places. 

In the clip above, Zak Bagans, the Keanu Reeves-ish host known for his "aggressive tactics", was having your everyday, run-of-the-mill conversation with the undead at the supposedly haunted Hillview Manor, a home for the poor, aged and insane. That's quite an eclectic mix of roommates, if I do say so. 

As you will see, Bagans finds out that his ghostly interviewee is actually a hockey fan; the natural follow-up question reveals what you probably would've guessed: Pittsburgh is his favorite team. Unfortunately, the interview didn't get the ghost's thoughts on the new Consol Energy Center, but I'm sure they were positive.

So the Pens are big in the spirit community. Doesn't surprise me; as we've seen before, they can market themselves to any demographic. But who knows how many other ghosts are fans of the Flightless Birds? I'm guessing that number would probably rival the amount of living, breathing Pirate fans at this point.

Thats pretty much the description of New Castle. (I grew up there)

I saw this the other day, too ... was cracking me up!

Maybe they should bring in Miss Cleo and see if we can get our spirit fans to lend some assistance ... kinda like Angels in the Outfield meets The Sixth Sense. We could even change the name of the team to the Pittsburgh Phantoms ... oh wait, nevermind.

I watch this stupid show all of the time. Not because I like it, I can honestly say I watch it because I hate it.

These douche bags in Ed Hardy shirts pretend that things go bump in the night, and I end up screaming "bull sh*t" at my tv for 60 minutes.

Quality programming.

OK, Burress... site is bookmarked. Glad I'm not the only one who finds those shows funny.

Did the ghosts suggest Fleury and Staal trades? Only way to know if it's a "true fan."
