Russians Invade Pittsburgh

from the Pittsburgh Penguins,
Evgeni Mihkeyev and Yaroslav Tretiakov made the long trip from Russia to the United States to watch three Penguins games this week. The two Moscow residents are part of the Penguins Support Crew, which gathers regularly at a sports bar to watch the handful of Penguins games broadcast live on television in Russia every season. “It’s just a sports bar, but our company of people goes there to watch every live Penguins game. There are not so many of them that are broadcast live. There are maybe five, 10 or 15 a year. It depends,” Mihkeyev said. “Right now, we can see a lot of Philadelphia Flyers games, but we don’t like them.”
