The news came out this week that the Penguins are staying in Pittsburgh.
I had been pretty sure that all the drama was just so much posturing.
Why was I so sure? Well, here in the Valley, when the sports boosters get serious about meeting a challenge they put their children on the line, sending teenagers on foot into traffic along the Tarentum Bridge Road to ask drivers for donations.
The Penguin fans never did this. They must have known something.
