First Goal at Home for Mr. Kennedy ... Kennedy!!

John and I celebrated yesterday after Tyler Kennedy scored a goal in yesterday's game against the NY Rangers; not only because it was his first at home this season, but also because we were waiting to see if it was true: if Ken Kennedy made a special video to be played on the jumbotron after Tyler Kennedy scored a goal.

I did a post on it a few months back (READ IT HERE).

We couldn't see it, but we stopped to listen and were thrilled when we heard it, "goal scored by Tyler Kennedy ... Kennedy!" We only wish we could've been there to see it!

It appears that we weren't the only ones waiting for this (from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)!!
Ken Kennedy taped the spot prior to the Stanley Cup playoffs after reading in the Tribune-Review that Penguins fans had taken to using his catchphrase to salute Tyler Kennedy, then a rookie.

Prior to his goal yesterday, Tyler Kennedy had not scored at home since March 16, 2008, leading even him to wonder if the "Mr. Kennedy" video would ever see the light of day.

"I was just really excited to see it," Kennedy said. "Now, they can throw it out."
