The best sign yet the Pens will win the Stanley Cup

By Finesse (follow me on Twitter)

It's June 2009.  The Pens are down two games to none in the Stanley Cup Finals against Detroit.  You lay down to go to bed that night and you can't get the Game 2 loss out of your head.  But you close your eyes harder and really try to clear your mind.  Then something else pops into your head.  And all of a sudden, everything is OK again.

You've heard the commercial 26 times during every playoff game and finally it's working.  You spend the morning of Game 3 buying three pairs of khakis and you know -- you just know -- that everything will be ok.  Something about that song comforts you, and it's not the wrinkle-free cotton.

Well, it's back.  Sort of.

Last night during the Stars-Kings game a Dodge Ram commercial came on.  Forget the Pens' epic comeback against the Flyers last night.  This is the omen we needed.

If this commercial plays during a Penguins game this season?

See you at Center Ice.


  1. That's a lot of khakis.

  2. One day in 2010 or 2011, my boss put that song on in our office, and and then thought I was crazy when I was all "OMG, THAT IS THE SONG FROM THE 2009 PLAYOFFS!"

    Can't believe it's back.

    Good story, Liz.

  3. As soon as Shero makes a trade for a new goalie, i'll believe the pens have a chance...

  4. Pens haven't lost since this omen.
