Penguins to city: We're not signing!
Watch the Pittsburgh Penguins telecasts and the message keeps on blaring - "Season ticket deposits accepted for the 2007-08 season!"
Season tickets? My we're being a bit presumptuous!
Yesterday was the deadline for the Pittsburgh Penguins to sign a one year lease extension with the Sports and Exhibition Authority to continue playing at Mellon Arena, while discussions for a new arena move along. According to this article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review no extension was signed.
Everyone in the 'Burgh is saying the right thing - "Nothing to see here folks!" "Keep moving!"
And in other news, work is progressing just fine on the Sprint Center in Kansas City. The roof enclosure is just about done, and an October 2007 completion date is on target.
