Just in time for the holidays, here are some adorable pictures and videos of penguins players that I've been meaning to post for some time now. Some are old, some are new. This is just another reason why I love the Penguins' organization so much. I feel like our team is special and it shows. Look for yourself.
About half of the team visited the Children's Hospital a week or so ago and then three more players (TK, Staal, and Eric Godard) went again this week!
Here's the video
Pretty much everyone has already seen this precious picture be circulated around the internet of Eric Godard and Bill Guerin doning tiaras, but it's worth it to post for those that have yet to witness this event. There are no words, just lots of adorable-ness.
You can view the rest of the pictures taken by wpxi here.
One of my favorite Pens prospects is Eric Tangradi. He's been hanging out in Wilkes-Barre with the Baby Pens as of late. This video is really cheesey, but that's why it's cute.
"how low can you go?"
The players seem like a tight-knit group and are always pulling practical jokes on each other. Sometimes we're lucky enough to be blessed with pictures of such events. Today, Empty Netters had this little jem for us.
The guys always seem to have fun practices too, or at least HCDB always finds a way to make sure they end on a positive note.
As always, a big thanks to Ghostwalker40 for making all of these fantastic videos accessible to us.
Lastly, I have to admit, I am not a fan of Christmas music, but I enjoy this song, sung by our own PensTv correspondant, Alyonka Larionov, and Diana Larionov. A portion of the proceeds from the single will go to Hockey Fights Cancer. You can donate here.
Whenever I'm having a bad day, the Penguins' organization always knows how to make it better. That is truly the best gift of all.
