Woot. Pure, beautiful WOOT!
Hell Yes. I was just on my way here to say smething about this, but I’m glad to see you’re on top of things. When the sports producer at work told me this I gave him a hug and did a big happy dance in the news room. Wow am I happy. Happy to watch the Pens demolish the Bruins.
