The Pittsburgh Penguins opened the doors of the tax payer funded Consol Energy Center last evening for a high brow VIP reception. The long overdue arena for the Pens brought out all kinds of politicians to soak up “credit” for getting the deal done.
So of course, the Governor of
Philadelphia Pennsylvania was in attendance. What ensued as he walked to the microphone to pat himself on the back was hilarity. Fast Eddie Rendell christened the ice after taking a phantom check from the hockey Gods and went down on all fours on the red carpet.
Everyone attempted to keep a straight face.
Screw the Flyers.
