Penguins Karaoke Their Playoff Blues Away

Last Friday, the Penguins players blew off a little steam at Excuses Bar & Grill in Southside ... it turned out to be an amazing night for everyone lucky enough to be at the bar.


Excuses Bar & Grill "Sometimes, I go to work. And, I have a person crab at me because I have the audacity to put a lemon. In their lemonade. And. Sometimes, I go to work and get to see Sidney Crosby sing Karaoke and not need his bodyguard, because we let him be a kid. A very polite and cool kid, at that. Or Jordan Staal, Brook Orpik,... Chris Kunitz, Max Talbot and Billy "Freakin'" Guerin. Okay...the whole team."
Pittsburgh Frank "Craig Adams was singing lead & Sid did back up on 'Don't Stop Believing'. Mike Rupp sang 'The Gambler'. And it may have been Adams again on 'Sweet Caroline'. Can't quite remember. But, I do remember the crowd chanting 'Let's Go Pens' during the Bah Bah Baah part of the chorus. Bless the Pens effort on the mike but they should stick with thier day jobs."

PenguinPoop.com has lots of pictures and a fuller account of what all happened at the karaoke bar from someone who was there: Clicky!

This is absolutely great. I hope most of these guys can be together next season. I have friends (mostly male) who try to convince me there's no cute in hockey, but the Penguins always prove that wrong!

Um ... you're not bashing anyone @lizagirl84 ... Ben made his own bed and must now lie in it (there are choices in life and the Pens prove time and time again that they can handle them!)

And I think the pictures are actually from the EXCUSES facebook page and it seems to me there are more on FB (but I could be wrong).

; )

KEEP THE COMMENTS COMING!!!

@stephanie totally agree. oh and by the way back in january Staal came us steel building to deliver tickets to upmc big wigs and my brother is security supervisor for the building and was his escort. how awesome is that. and of course you cant ask for anything autographs or anything all my bro could say was icant believe im in the same elevator as Jordan Staal. and you know how he responded "no big deal man i just shoot a puck around the ice no big deal". yeah how freakin down to earth are these people

Stephanie said...

@lizagirl84 -- VERY COOL ... I've heard more than once how down-to-earth all the guys are (and it would kill me not to get an autograph being that close!)!!
