We'd love to see what your Penguins sock monkey is up to

In a most serendipitous night of marketing, Trib Total Media sponsored a Pittsburgh Penguins sock monkey giveaway.
Or should we say, lucky sock monkey giveaway?
That was the night — March 10 — Chris Kunitz's hat trick prompted a rain of sock monkeys upon the ice at Consol Energy Center. It was a sight that garnered national attention as sports shows across the country aired the video.
Not all the sock monkeys made it onto the ice that night. Those monkeys the fans held onto have kept the luck going as part of the excitement leading to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
We found a few around town — and further afield.
We'd love to see what your Trib sock monkey is up to — at the games or relaxing on off days — throughout the drive to the championship.
Send your photos — and your name and address — to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's go, Pens!

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
