Today Is The Greatest Day I Have Ever Known

Friend of The Show RACHEL S. FOR THE WIN!!!!!!! We get to head back to Pittsburgh for our latest installment of our Roaming Penguins saga, where Rachel captured the first picture of Sidney Penguin in the stands watching Sidney Crosby on the ice:


(Here's a zoomed view of S.C.)

Here are Rachel's own words to tell us about their day together:
Roaming Sidney and the family traveled to Pittsburgh for my brother’s wedding. Friday morning, Sept 19, we took the kids and Sid to the open practice. It was really cool – people were walking up in jerseys, which was fun to see.

Heading in to the arena, which will always be the Civic Arena to me, none other than Ray Shero drove in front of us into the lot. The practice itself was really quiet and it was strange to be in the semi-empty, quiet arena.

Sidney P. watches the Zamboni drive by.

My son, Henry, who is 4 ½ was so excited and shouted “my first hockey game!!” I told him, “you have no idea, honey.” It was also funny to see people eating hot sausage sandwiches and nachos at 9:30 in the morning.

What an awesome day!

I highly recommend getting in to see a practice for anyone who can, because it was really cool. So, I got a few good shots of Sidney inside and one at the new arena construction site.

This is also S.P.'s first trip to the new arena site! :)

(I also got some good Pens gear at the shop in the arena!)

Thanks, Rachel!

  3. Nicole,

    Well, getting these TSCS posts up is easy when you have Jodie on board! She sent me a very organized file of all the code and detailed instructions. She and I are switching month-by-month loading them on here. We make an amazing team!! (<----and she will laugh when she sees this ;) )

  4. Hey everyone. I started a Roaming Penguins group on facebook.

    Here's the link if you want to join.

  5. Terri,

    Thanks for showing so much love for our Roamers!

    However, there is already another RP group on Facebook I started up a few months ago:

    I just love that you guys are so supportive and excited about our yarn boys :)

  6. I did not know there was already a group. I didn't even look first. LOL
