If I Could Be Emotional For A Moment …

I’m a Pens fan. A diehard one. Anybody who knows me can tell you this. For my birthday, beer steins with the Pens logo on them are not out of the norm as presents. This is just how I roll, and I like it that way. My team might not be perfect, but whose is … Continue reading
