New Pens Arena Gets Named: CONSOL Energy Center

The Pens announced today that they have reached a new 21 year agreement with CONSOL Energy to own the naming rights for Pittsburgh's new multi-purpose arena.

Hopefully we all get see many many more of those infamous Power to the Penguins videos on FSN prior to games that drag on for what seem 10 minutes before we are treated to Steiggy and tons of wonderful Errey'isms. Man I love those videos. If anyone can find it, please send it my way...or post the link in a comment or something. I want it.

I really have no "insight", if you want to call it that, on this event. I don't really give two shits what it's called. Should have been Lemieux Center or as Pensblog would put it, "Buries It Center". I mean, he did save the damn franchise...twice. Who cares though, the facility is going to be bad ass.

Also, for those of you who have ever watched a Pens game on TV, you all know how lucky we are to be graced with the presence of the man, the myth, that is Bob Errey. My roommate filled me in on this blog that lists a ton of, if you will...Erreyisms. It's fn awesome. Check it out. Thanks Scott G.

A sample of what you're in for:

Steiggy: "What was better: Mystery, Alaska or Sudden Death?"
Errey: "Uh...Sudden Death had a sudden death."
