FBO: 'Detroit Red Wings'

Not often you get snubbed by Stanley Cup athletes in an elevator. It's happened, to the FBO, in Pittsburgh.

Here on a brief fact-finding mission to West Pennsylvania, FBO happens to be sharing a hotel with Red Wings players, who arrived today -- along with beards and big red bags -- to a hotel on the Allegheny downtown. Two players approached our elevator, and we kept it open for them. 'No, it's OK. We got that one,' pointed to the next elevator.

We hope the Penguins win.

Meanwhile, Kenny Chesney played the Steelers football stadium on Saturday night, and a nearby sidewalk vendor -- standing with a cane -- was selling cowboy hats and Confederate flags. Asked if he normally sells the latter. "Not here, no."

This man was not invited to the Failed Bands of Oklahoma Panhandle show.

You were there??? I was in Pittsburgh Mon-Wed. Got tickets to game 6. And thanks to your curse, the Red Wings lost.

You were in Pittsburgh? Hilarious. I was there Mon and Tues. Did you like Pittsburgh -- thought it was pretty nice. Red Wings will win tonight, I'm sure.

I'm working on a casino over by Heinz Field, so I'm there quite a bit. Very cool city. And yes, the Wings will win - home ice advantage seems to mean a lot in this series.

Snub the FBO, and you will not hoist Lord Stanley's Cup. This should be in every NHL locker room next season.

They lost 2 straight games and lost the series as a result. This could be bigger and longer lasting than the Cubs Billy Goat curse...

-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Hell yeah.

Speaking of Johanns, I wonder what Bach would say?
