City of Champions

The billboard on the Pennsylvania Turnpike said, "City of Champions", a tribute to the 1979 Pirates, winners of the World Series, and the Steelers, who were on their way to their fourth Super Bowl trophy.

A new sign can be erected.

Tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup with a 2-1 victory in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. This, of course, coupled with the Steelers' victory over the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII, gives Pittsburgh quite a special year.

Evgeni Malkin rightfully won the Conn Smythe Trophy.

Detroit fans are booing at the Joe. Wow.

Sydney Crosby has just raised the Cup. There's nothing like it in sports.

I'm not talking about baseball. I'm in denial.
