You go be awesome.

Three Pens posts in a row. Whoops.

Since the fire, readers have been sending me emails here and there with links to awesome things on the Internet meant to put a smile on my face.

It’s how I discovered and how I discovered this amazing flash mob.

It’s also how I discovered this adorable video of Max Talbot being the quintessential Max Talbot:

Much love.

    I hereby declare Max Talbot to be my self-united husband. How can you not love this guy? Not only is he a great human being, but he has the same birthday as my son.

    Here I am stuck in balmy So Cal for a couple weeks.

    The LAers make a big deal about the Kings but it’s just not the same as Pens fans ( ‘Burgers are the best hockey fans ). They talk trash but it’s just that, trash.
    Can’t hold a candle to the Pens. They got nothin’ even close to The Kid. ( Seems like we’re going to have to consider not calling him that soon ).
