Our Boys are Wonderful On and Off the Ice!

Yesterday afternoon, Brooks Orpik, Kris Letang, and Eric Godard handed out turkeys, and bags of potatoes & carrots to underprivileged families in the Hill District. This was the second year that the Penguins organization and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank joined together to provide food to those less fortunate.
“It humbles you a lot,” Orpik said. “You’re a lot more thankful than you usually are. These are people that have a lot less than us and appreciate it a lot more than we do. It reminds you, especially at this time of year, not to take anything for granted.”
This is the stuff that makes me proud to be a Pens fan because our players are not only good on the ice, they're just as good [hearted] off of it as well -- what a great bunch of guys!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Enjoy the video (make sure to listen for Letang saying "Happy Thanksgiving" to everyone he hands a bag of carrots to -- TOO SWEET - he seems like such a gentle soul)!!!

I totally agree.

Is it any wonder that they have "world wide" fans. (My goofy self included)[smile]
