LINK CITY: Solid pics, Sidney Crosby Day…

Rick is looking for pics of Consol Energy Center and other arenas for Gamedays. has it Malkin was unreal during the Black and Gold game in Wilkes-Barre.  His performance was topped only by who snapped a solid batch of pictures from the game.  They are definitely worth a look. [ Scott Smith Photography ] Trib and PG have a bunch of solid reads.   We are scared to click any of the stories out of fear that we'll have to read about Steve MacIntyre somewhere.
ALSO: Sidney Crosby specials, GIF of the day… K. spotted this on Facebook.  Some guy got Crosby to sign his arm…and then got it tattooed. Zach…

So this morning I woke up knowing that sometime today I would be lucky enough to not only hang off the ramp of a perfectly good aircraft, but also exit it preferably while in flight and float down under a nice piece of deployed silk. I don't know if any of you have ever flown on military aircraft, but I use the word perfectly good aircraft only because it was an Army aircraft. Usually I deal with Air Force pilots who fly a C-130 like it is a F-16. Either way, it was going to be a pretty easy day. Go up, spot some panels, lead some dudes off the ramp of a helicopter and let gravity do its thing. Blah blah blah. So one of the things you have to do before any jumpers are going to load the aircraft is an inspection of the aircraft. Aircraft lands… I walk out to inspect the aircraft… In all its glory… There it is… Number 87. At that point, I knew it was going to be a good day. sent us this.  We are hoping it gets deleted before the playoffs.  Is this on the set of Wonder Years?
