08:07 AM ET 01.11 | The holiday season may be over, but Pittsburgh remains in a spirit of giving after the lockout. The Penguins will offer free admission to fans for all training-camp sessions at Consol Energy Center next week. Nothing has been finalized yet, but the first day of workouts is expected to be Monday. In addition to opening training camp to the public, the Penguins have unveiled a series of gestures intended to reward -- or, in some cases, win back -- members of their fan base. Those include: * Free selected concession items for the first four home games. Fans will be required to present a voucher good for three items to obtain those. * A 50 percent reduction in the price of all merchandise at "PensGear" stores on the day of the first four home games.

I'd rather Dessie Mitcheson bend over backwards instead if you don't mind.

It would be better if somebody bent a certain dwarf over a stump.

+1

For my mind the apology given yesterday was nothing but unadulterated horse apples... Why the Der Kommissar hasn't tendered his resignation and eaten a a whole plate of crow is beyond me.

Pens apologizing for a lock out that their ownership didn't want and tried to resolve.
Class.

January 11, 2013  10:50 AM ET

At least they are doing something.

January 11, 2013  10:52 AM ET

Agree with Durk and Nard.

It hurts to think about it.. Somehow it reminds me of an old Friends episode when Phoebe says she could put her feet behind her ears and Monica asks 'how are you not married?'

Crosby bends over to make fans feel better?

January 11, 2013  11:16 AM ET

well, at least they're doing something, I suppose, I'm sure the Habs and the Leafs will just continue to bend over their fans.

it always amazes me when those sneaky lines get passed the censors.
There was a line on the Odd Couple once (a flashback in the 1950's) blind date episode of how he met Gloria. They are at Felix's apt, and all the furniture has plastic slip covers.
Felix; I have to marry gloria
Oscar; You? A man who wraps everything he owns in plastci and you HAVE to marry her?

brilliant
