#647. Tarrio

During the span of 15 years (1974 -1989), the Pittsburgh Penguins went 0–39–3 at the Spectrum on the other side of Pennsylvania.  That's a 42 game winless streak against the Philadelphia Flyers.  But that entire dynamic quickly changed when the Penguins drafted Mario Lemieux.  All of a sudden, the rivalry became unusually competitive.

But nothing pissed off Pittsburgh Penguins fans more than when Flyer fans used to taunt Mario.  You'd hear the crowd collectively heckling... Mario.  Mario.  Mario.

Transition:  Proud Boys leader Henry "Enrique" Tarrio was just sentenced to 5 months in federal prison for a variety of offenses related to domestic terrorism.

Tough guy drinkin' a White Claw.

So here's my suggestion.  Do you remember the movie Shawshank Redemption?  Specifically when the newest prisoners would arrive?  All of the inmates would chant "fresh fish, fresh fish, fresh fish"... until someone broke down in tears and lost their shit.  Well, I would encourage Tarrio's fellow inmates to chant, "Tarrio, Tarrio, Tarrio"... every time he gets forcibly sodomized.

Tarrio, Tarrio, Tarrio

Mario, Mario, Mario

I've had a few run-ins with Mario Lemieux.  Considering the magnitude of his personality and the historic nature of his comeback... I figured that he might be brave enough to relay my concerns about dangerously outdated venue emergency evacuation protocol.  I was incorrect.  I guess being courageous on the ice, and distinguished in an owner's box, and iconic in the realm of sports history... well, it doesn't always translate in the real world.

Please do not share this material with Proud Boys leader Henry "Enrique" Tarrio and/or Penguins owner Mario Lemieux.
