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

Thursday, May 2, 2013, 8:55 p.m.
 

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 tribliving@tribweb.com.

Let's go, Pens!
