Life Is Better Without The Pigeon

The always informative and entertaining Empty Netters blog points out that the Penguins are on a 17 game playoff win streak - without the "corporate pigeon" logo.

The Penguins ended their 1992 championship season on an 11 game winning streak. The next year, they incorporated the "Howard Baldwin pigeon" into the uniforms and it's been a living hell ever since in Pittsburgh - fittingly the home of George A. Romero, the director of Night Of The Living Dead.

With the new uniforms introduced this season, the pigeon was booted entirely from the organization and now the Pens have gone 6-0 to start the 08 playoffs.

And George A. Romero now resides in Toronto where it's cheaper to make movies.

What does that have to do with anything?
