Penguins warmth shines as Igloo says goodbye

Chuck Vucetich, Red Lion, Pa.

Having attended hundreds of games at The Igloo, my wife wrote a letter asking permission to enter Mellon Arena early for our last game so we could take some photos to remember the old girl by.

I honestly figured they would never respond, but she got a phone call from Mario's secretary informing her they couldn't honor the request because of all the activities going on that day, but they wanted to thank me for being a lifelong Pens fan.

Imagine my surprise when I opened an envelope and found an autographed picture of Sidney Crosby inside.

My life has been filled with so many wonderful memories from games there and now I'm able to add the closing chapter of my life's memories at The Igloo in a very special way.

The word "class" just doesn't describe in enough detail what you did.

Thank you, Pittsburgh Penguins, Mario Lemieux and Sidney Crosby, for making this (old) fan feel special and young again!
