Default Penguins to Break Ground on New Arena

Governor Edward G. Rendell, Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Sports & Exhibition Authority Chairman John Chalovich will join Pittsburgh Penguins owner Mario Lemieux, CEO Ken Sawyer and team president David Morehouse in a groundbreaking ceremony for the new multi-purpose arena on Thursday, August 14 at 11 a.m.

The ceremonial event will take place at the future location of “center ice” of the new facility, which is being built across the street from Mellon Arena, between Centre and Fifth Avenues. The arena will be home to the Penguins and will host numerous concerts, family shows and other events year-round. It is scheduled to open for the start of the 2010-11 NHL season.

The groundbreaking ceremony will be open to the general public. Those attending should enter the site via the gate located along Washington Place. Footwear that is appropriate for a construction site – such as hard-soled, close-toed shoes or boots – is required.

What sucks is that I will still have 1 more day of Football that day before I get home. Better save some footage somewhere. Would've been nice to have seen all 3 of the new sports stadiums/arenas groundbreakings.

Pittsburgh is a candidate for expansion. South Florida and Boston are the ones nearest to being added.

Pro Sports Wise they better be Black and Gold.

I wish I knew. You would think they would have followed, but it's college and I'm ok with the non-pro's not being BnG - but for the Pro Ranks if it ain't Black and Gold it doesn't belong in Da 'Burgh.

One more reason the Gladiators died and moved on to Tampa.
