Reports are that fans began lining up at 4:00 a.m. this morning for the noon unveiling of the Mario Lemieux statue at the Consol today, and I think this was worth the wait. Here are some AP and Reuters photos of the statue unveiling:
That’s Mario’s mother, Mrs. Le Magnifique, I believe she is called.
I will visit the statue on Sunday to pay my respects and maybe lick it if I won’t get arrested for doing so.
However, all of this reminds me, where are we on the Gene Kelly statue?
