The Pittsburgh hockey team is the PENGUINS, flightless waterfowls, not the PENS, writing instruments or confining spaces for pigs or small children.  PENGUIN is a whopping four more letters than PEN.  Hockey fans shouldn't be so damm lazy.

But chanting "Let's Go Penguins!" "Let's Go Penguins!" takes too long. Extra syllable. Pens flows off the tongue with ease. The slop that was the Flyers last night, should've been in pig pens.

That's because of the "Here we go" chant is slower and longer. Let's Go Pens is a 1,2,3 count. If the chant for the Penguins was "Here we go Penguins, here we go" then you use the full word.

Not all but some on here growing up hockey was irrelevant.  The highschools  didn't have it maybe 1-2 if that.  The Pens barely survived the 80s they were terrible nobody went to games. I guess everybody loves a winner. Regardless of knowledge of the sport. You have your bandwagon fans . Yeah let's go pens . What's icing ? I don't I like the pens were winning bandwagon. Let's go guins' is the best chant of the bandwagoners. Lol  =))

You are a repressed English teacher, right?  Surprised you had nothing to say about my usage of DA instead of the more proper THE.  Find something important to concern yourself.
