Ok, I will admit it. As a reporter who covers the Pittsburgh Penguins, I come to the arena early for peace and quiet with the hockey rink backdrop. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to roam the concourse, eat anything I wanted, watch hockey, and not be bothered. I’m pretty sure this would be nirvana.
On Wednesday morning the Penguins announced a contest that will give one winner and nine guests much of that nirvana. From the Penguins press release:
This season’s version of the popular ‘Penguins Passport’ promotion will see one lucky fan and nine guests win the exclusive opportunity to win Keys to the Arena and call PPG Paints Arena their home for a day.
