Checking In With Penguin Fans

I spent the afternoon asking several Caps whether they know the history of Pens-Caps, the level of animosity between the fan bases, the general potential for a Web traffic dirty bomb that this series holds. The public answer, at least, is nah, not so much.

Still, as a D.C. resident, you can't help but look through every gallery of user-generated Penguins fan photos you can find, just in case anything remarkable comes up. Nothing thus far, but the cat is pretty cool, anyhow. The neck tattoo makes my skin itch a bit.

Photos via WTAE, and there's lots more.

Also, just in case you haven't had your fill of anti-Crosby t-shirts, Dan from Philly sends along this link to his own Round 1 anti-Crosby shirt. Not sure if he's officially throwing his support behind the Caps, or if he's just trying to make an extra buck.

Oh I can't wait for pics of the anti-Crosby stuff going on at games 1 and 2, if for no other reason that all the Pens fans that will show up to bash us all. Go Caps!

What's Steinberg trying to say? That the Penguins are pussy-cats?

That cat is just so wrong on so many levels. And I'm embarrassed for the cat.

That cat picture is missing its caption.

I fixed it:

A friend suggested another caption for the cat photo:

"Any p*ssy can put on a Pens jersey."
