Go Penguins!

While my brother James was here, he made a point to catch some of the Stanley Cup playoffs between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers. As of Sunday evening, Pittsburgh was leading the series 2-0.


So it's in honor of my brother's loyalty to his hometown team that I post the following found on Emil Steiner's OFF/beat:

A Philadelphia Flyers fan has taken on the daunting task of guarding the Rocky statue against possible attacks by Pittsburgh Penguins fans. According to reports, a local radio station has charged Mike Prince, 23, with protecting the Sly Stallone statue which stands on the Philadelphia Art Museum steps. This seeming paranoia stems from a Craigslist ad reading: "Need to recruit someone who is a Pittsburgh native, living in Philly. I want you to put a Penguins jersey on the Rocky statue and take pictures."
