Pennsylvania wins two more

With the Pittsburgh Penguins winning the Stanley Cup in an exciting game 7, and the Hershey Bears taking the AHL's Calder Cup a few minutes later, the State of Pennsylvania now has 5 defending champions in the major and upper-level minor leagues. We all remember the Phillies and Steelers, but the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees won the International League's Governors' Cup last season too. What's the point of this post? Nothing, other than to note a mildly interesting coincidence.

Congratulations to the Penguins and their fans on a great victory. Wonder if the Pirates can join the fun?

  1. A touch of irony.... the night the Pens won (congrats!!!) the Tigers were in Pittsburgh playing the Pirates. Tigers won 3-1.
