I want to say thank you. To all the vetrans, and soldiers currently serving at home and around the world, thank you for protecting my right to life, liberty, and the persuit of happiness. Thank you for protecting us from those that wish to destroy us. For spending months away from your loved ones, so that we can enjoy our loved ones on a daily basis.
Thank you for protecting our freedoms, even the freedom of those who yell at you in the streets, who work to cut your resources at every turn, who work to cut the budget that helps to keep you safe while you protect their right to protest all your sweat and blood.
Our country is the greatest country in the world because of the sacrifice that you give day to day, and because of the sacrifice that those who died before you gave.
Thank you for your service, for your love of this country, and your dedication to those men beside you.
God Bless you.
On a different more depressing note, the Pens fell to the Detroit Redwings 3-0 in game two of the Stanley Cup finals in Detroit. The pens have alot of work to do before they play in Pittsburgh Wednesday night.
Last night I gathered with some friends at Mellon Arena, to watch the game on the Jumbotron. Judging from past experience, it was louder with a crowd half the size of normal watching a game on a tv, than it was when the Pens last played at home. $5 got you in to the arena to sit and watch the gaem with your closest 5000 + friends, and while we cheered and screamed, our battle cries did little to help rally them to a victory.
Come on guys, you made it this far, start skating for the puck, lets make passes, and play on no matter how hard the referees try to keep you from playing the game the way it was created.
LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS, LETS GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!
