Lemieux Decides to Try Again Next Year

In an all too familiar senario, Pittsburgh fans are dissapointed at the decision that Mario Lemieux has decided to call it quits for the year. Many fans have speculated that Mario was only interested in himself and money. However, the truth is that Mario Lemieux, now 38, has given his selfless time, money and energy to save the Penguins franchise not only once but 3 times.

Blaming a bad hip, Mario plans to have surgery to repair the tendonitis in his left hip. Hope for a better year came with the admission from Mario,
"It's disappointing that I won't have a chance to return to the ice this season, but I look forward to coming back next year."
