    Ice hockey's Pittsburgh Penguins will visit the city here this week as they consider a move from their current home, the Houston Chronicle reported.
    Mario Lemieux, owner and retired star of the National Hockey League club, is expected to lead a delegation from Pittsburgh, the team's home since its 1967 debut, an unnamed source told the newspaper.
    The Penguins' stadium lease expires after this season and a new arena project fell through. Lemieux has already been to Kansas City to explore relocation options there.
    Tad Brown, chief executive of basketball's Houston Rockets, would have to share his club's home arena, the Toyota Center, with the Penguins if they made a move here.
    "We look forward to seeing them if they're here," Brown told the Chronicle. "We'll show them how great a city Houston is and how great Toyota Center is."

If I'm not mistaken I think Oklahoma City is also interested in the Pens. Houston would be great thought I would not have to drive all the way to Dallas or Atlanta to watch the NHL.

I'm CajunMan and I approve this message.

I swears to you, it's just posturing to extract the best possible deal from the state. Barring a total breakdown this is all just final haggling. The visit to KC got major concessions and the visit to Houston is intended to get more.

    "I feel confident that the best deal's on the table, no matter where they would go," Fontana said. "If they're holding out to get more, the question becomes how long they're going to hold out before they say it's a done deal."

I'm still holding out hope for Winnipeg.

I've seen ONE movie so far this year: Borat - (5*)

Canada is playing a lot like the US played in Nagano. I do not know if they thought that the first round would be a cakewalk or are waiting for the second round to wake up.
