    I knew it was coming, but it's still painful. Thanks, Super Mario.

    Now I don't get to see him plays when he comes back to the Bell Centre in March. I have tix to the Pitts game. At least I'll see Crosby.

    He should have done it at the end of last season.

    Robataille will probably retire after the olympic break, since he finally beat Dionne's record.

    If not for injuries and cancer, Mario would have shattered Gretzskys career numbers.

    Look how many games Mario played compared to Wayne......

    Hopefully he will remain active with the Pens, although it doesn't look like it with their pending sale.

    I got to see the Pens get hammered earlier this season by NJ. Although not nearly as nimble, you didn't know where he was going to put the puck next. He was also the only player laying into the Devils (for that game).

    I'm pretty sure he still has shares in the (class AA) Altoona Curve baseball team. Hopefully, he will be making more appearences out this way!

    You would be correct. My aunt and uncle live across the street from the stadium!

    I think I remember you mentioning that once...maybe I've parked on their lawn for a game before!

    It's kind of amazing, that being a hockey superstar has also led Mario to be a somewhat successful businessman. The man doesn't even have a high school diploma!
