When your home team is actually the best

Why Pittsburgh Hockey is Definitely the Best Hockey

Every city has their argument that their sports team is the best in the league. But how many people is this actually true for? I can tell you for sure that citizens of Pittsburgh are definitely included in this population. This is absolutely biased because hockey has always been my favorite sport to watch, but the Pittsburgh Penguins make hockey fun for everyone who lives there. Here's why.

1. The players

The Penguins have arguably had some of the best hockey players of all time. Not many people can say that their players have won the amount or variety of different awards that ours have. From MVPs to points scored, we have them all covered. Not to mention how fun and spirited they are. It seems like everyone who joins the team or has remained on it genuinely loves Pittsburgh, which resonates so well with the fans.

2. The atmosphere

Whether you're inside or outside the arena, you will always feel included. PPG Paints, formerly known as Consol Energy Center, is the 6 year old arena that is home to the Penguins. It is so welcoming and open on the inside, not to mention full of such great food. When i go to a game, I always feel so close to the action no matter how far away I sit. But one of the best features of the arena's atmosphere isn't inside, it's out. During the Stanley Cup Final, the outdoor big screen brings in crowds that you would have to see to believe. Set up right in front of the entrance to the arena, it plays the game on TV that also happens to be going on just inside. Thousands and thousands of people bring lawn chairs and blankets and cheer on the Pens. This past year was the first time i got to experience it, and it was something I will never forget.

3. The Game

Hockey is so fun. It wasn't until i really started paying attention to the rules of the game itself and watching everything play out that I realized how much fun I had watching it. It's so fast paced and exciting, and you never know what is going to happen next or in the heart of the moment. I think that may be the beauty of it. Having such a talented team here in Pittsburgh makes me feel so lucky to be able to witness every game. I am so thankful for the Penguins and the way they play hockey! I wish everyone could experience what it's like to be so proud of a team that represents their city so perfectly, and all the excitement they bring.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
