News Streaking Penguins Reportedly Just One Win Away from Getting Acknowledged on Twitter by LeBron James
"I got word tonight that if we win our 14th in a row on Thursday against Winnipeg, LeBron or at least LeBron's marketing rep who posts some of his tweets will tweet: 'Wow. 14 in a row Pengins. Congrats,'" said Pittsburgh head coach Dan Bylsma. "I told the guys and they're obviously thrilled. I just hope they can keep their attention on the ice and don't think ahead to LeBron's tweet."
Pittsburgh general manager Ray Shero has known for days that a LeBron tweet about the Penguins was in the works if the team could keep winning and has been actively making trades to improve his team in hopes of earning that recognition.
"It was the talk of hockey a few weeks ago when LeBron mentioned Chicago's points streak on Twitter, which in turn got the Blackhawks noticed by national media," said Shero. "We made it our goal that day as an organization to get noticed by him."
If Pittsburgh can increase its win streak to 14 games, team owner Mario Lemieux has said he will have the tweet placed on a banner, which will be raised to the Consol Energy Center rafters alongside the team's three Stanley Cup championship banners.
Picture Sidney Crosby Face
His face is still experiencing concussion symptoms.
Oh, crap. That's good. This means the "Harlem Shake" is going to keep happening.
Flyers fans probably think something else. Something totally classy and not homophobic.
At last: a new goaltending style.
That fight had been brewing for a second or more.
This will likely cause an increase in the number of people saying Sidney is a girl's name, huh?
So that's how Sidney Crosby gets those concussions.
It's as though he doesn't appreciate the amazing wit that went into that.
