Penguins Stanley Cup Victory parade set for Monday

Sunday, 06.14.2009 / 1:21 PM / 2009 Stanley Cup Final: Detroit vs. Pittsburgh
(PITTSBURGH) June 13, 2009 - Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato today announced plans to honor the Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins with a ‘City of Champions’ victory parade through downtown Pittsburgh Monday, June 15, starting at 12:00 noon at the intersection of Grant Street and Seventh Avenue.

"No words can describe the history-making comeback achieved by our team,” Ravenstahl said. “No one believed that this could be done, that we could win on the road and defy history, and that the League’s youngest captain could make it happen,” Ravenstahl said. “On Monday, let’s show the world how the ‘City of Champions’ welcomes home their Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins.”

"Monday’s parade will be a great opportunity for this region to honor and celebrate this amazing Penguins team for bringing the Stanley Cup back home,” Onorato said.

The parade will commence at 12:00 noon and take the same route as last February’s Super Bowl parade. Proceeding through Grant Street, the parade will loop to the Boulevard of the Allies and end at Stanwix Street where a stage celebration will be held. A media reviewing stand will be set up near the stage.

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
