the greats: mario lemieux, 1984–1997, 2000–2006

A gifted playmaker and fast skater despite his large size, Lemieux led Pittsburgh to two consecutive Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. Under his ownership, the Penguins won a third Cup in 2009. He is the only man to have his name on the Cup as both a player and an owner. [x]

The Perfect Gift...

So I made the horrible Penguins blanket for the poor Penguins fan baby…kid never had a chance…but I realized there was still a room for redemption (and brainwashing)!!

The invited asked specifically for a book you loved as a child to give to the impending nugget…I always like to try and do something a little different, a little special, but what book?   Then I remembered: Roch Carrier’s “The Hockey Sweater” cutest story in the universe.  If all goes well, he’ll know who The Rocket is before Sidney Crosby or Mario Lemieux…
