Is an exorcism at PPG Paints Arena needed?

New, comments

It was needed. Perhaps it will work.

It’s been well-documented this season of how absurd the rash of the injuries the Penguins have been facing. Between Sidney Crosby being out with a sports hernia, Brian Dumoulin recently having a lacerated tendon repaired, or anyone else being out for any specific period of time, it’s a big problem.

It’s also been well-documented that PPG Paints Arena was built on the ground where a hospital sat.

Is that a bad omen? It’s sure possible!

So how does one go about overcoming such a bad omen of building a monstrosity of a sports venue on top of an old hospital grounds?

First of all, I love the forward thinking here and being so proactive as to send this to the Penguins social media team. Second of all, it’s not a bad idea!

Now to be determined in the near or not so near future is whether or not this exorcism tilts the arrow back in the Penguins favor when it comes to injuries. If things seem to work out, I believe Edible Arrangements will be next in line to be sent to the Penguins social media team.
