The Post-Gazette recently asked fans to come up with nicknames for the new arena. The ones they came up with are as follows:
I'm not sure I get the name "Rookery," but my favorites are The goal mine, Mario's House, and The house that Sid built. My favorite being the goal mine even though the Pens would probably be in Kansas City without Sid and Mario. Which one is your favourite? Got any other nicknames?
