Here's Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury leading his team out on to the ice before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. I haven't checked my leadership handbook recently, but I suspect that falling on your face is not the best way to lead your proverbial troops into proverbial battle. Between this and the With Leather picks jinx, it's no surprise that the Pens have fallen behind 2-0.
Of course, some folks may point out that the Red Wings' obvious superiority as a team may have something to do with that, but just how are they going to prove that? Facts? Pffft, you can use facts to prove anything. Give me some chicken bones, tea leaves, and a black cat, and I'll beat any sports book. And also make a delicious meal for two.
