Once again

The Penguins have done it! They beat the Red Wings - in Detroit - and have brought the Stanley Cup back to Pittsburgh. So I guess that makes us the City of Champions again!

Wow! It's been a long time since there have been two championship teams in Pittsburgh in the same year. I believe it was 1979 - 30 long years ago - since the Steelers and Pirates had given (earned for) Pittsburgh the right to name itself the City of Champions. Too bad the Pirates barely exist as a major league baseball team these days. Otherwise we might be able to go for the "triple crown".
Wouldn't that be awesome? The Super Bowl, The Stanley Cup and the World Series Champions all in Pittsburgh in the same year!
Yeah, that's never gonna happen. But it would be cool.

OK, I'm done with sports talk until the Steelers pre-season begins.
