Happy New Year!

I want to get all mushy for a second and reflect on the absolutely amazing year we have witnessed. 2009 brought all kinds of excitement to the Pittburgh fan's heart. Steelers brought home Super Bowl number 6 from Tampa, the only organization to do so in the entire NFL, while the Penguins brought home the Stanley Cup from the coldest parts of the D after being out of playoff contention. They won all their game sevens on the road, and it was not an easy road at all. The Flyers proved to be a tough competitor in the first round, but Max Talbot shushed them all. The Caps series was a long one, going seven games. It was brother pitted against brother, Staal versus Staal, which Jordan swept in four. And we all know that MAF made an epic save in the final seconds of game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. 2009 was a year of epic proportions and it deserves to be remembered.

This commercial is to die for. I love Max and Sid. They are adorable. It is a great way to tip your hat to what has been a fantastic year for the Pittsburgh fan. We brought home a Lombardi Trophy and a Stanley Cup. We got to host two parades for our champions. I was lucky enough to be in Tampa at Super Bowl XLIII to witness Stantonio's catch and I watched Max score both goals on tv. Words cannot describe how happy I was to watch these wins. Pittsburgh, I salute you. You have the most amazing fans ever and I am so glad to be able to count myself as one of them. Enjoy. Happy new year! Here's to 2010 and another championship or two.
