How could we have been so blind?!
God doesn’t hate Benny. He isn’t mad at him. He’s merely forgotten about him and moved on to bigger and better things …
Namely this dude.
Evgeni Malkin, Savior of the Pittsburgh Penguins 2.0, scored twice last night in the Pens victory over the Kings, tying for the modern record of consecutive goals in first games or some such smack like that. ESPN puts it:
Malkin became the first player since the 1917-18 season to begin his NHL career with goals in each of his first six games. That’s when the Canadiens’ Joe Malone established the all-time record by scoring goals in his first 14 NHL games.
The point is … God loves Evgeni Malkin … and PittGirl kind of does too. ESPN refers to him as the Emperor Penguin. I refer to him as God loves Evgeni more than Ben.
It has been years … YEARS … since I’ve gone to a Pens game and I think this year might be the year that changes.
