Happy Birthday to Pat

So today is Pat’s birthday. His exact age I will leave unknown, but I can guarantee there was or will be a celebration leaving him in no shape to even blog. Regrettably, I will have to miss out due to geographic limitations, but hopefully pictures will surface. The image below was taken about 6 weeks ago.

Pat, please don't kill me -Sam

We're hoping for something at least on par, if not better. In Pat’s honor, and due to his unabashed love of open-ice hockey and the Penguins’ glory days, I present you with the top 10 Mario Lemieux goals of his career. Number 3 is the goal Pat mentions in the Mario/Gretzky argument that he says gives Mario a bit of an edge, and after watching it again its hard to disagree. Happy Birthday, Pat.

Mario's Top 10:

Be sure to check out Pat’s articles if you haven’t already. I'm sure within 5 minutes of seeing that picture Pat will have an excuse in the comments section. I look forward to that.

No excuses, only explanations. This picture was taken early one morning in Brooklyn. A friend and writer of another famous website had just moved into the apartment the night before, and his roommate wasn't scheduled to move in until that day. So I stayed in his bed. Only problem? Said friend had no blanket, pillow, or blinds on his windows. Thus, I am using a towel as a blanket, I have my shorts tied around my feet cause it was freezing, and my t-shirt is wrapped around my eyes to keep the sun out. An enjoyable night, to be sure.

I almost believe his excuse. Perhaps Pat should go into creative writing.
