Dear Pittsburgh Penguins

a Hot Mess

Yeah You

Dear Pittsburgh Penguins

... the beautiful thing here is, sure, Detroit Red Wings are a good a team = however, it is not written in the stars, it's not destiny that they win the Stanley Cup this year...

 ...a lot of people believe in the Pittsburgh Penguins and believe they can beat the Detroit Red Wings and win the Stanley Cup this year ... 

well, as great existential philosophers like Jean Paul Sarte simply put forth to define existential philosophy = "existence proceeds essence."  Meaning that everyday, every hour, every minute, every second we have the freedom to define who we are and what we mean and how we are perceived.

sure, Detroit Red Wings are a good team but that doesn't mean they have to win. It doesn't mean it's written in the stars they win. It's not their destiny they win. 

The Pittsburgh Penguins have each hour, each minute, each second, each shift to define themselves on the ice wherever they may be ... 

so, yeah, define who you are here tonight and Pittsburgh at home and then go into Detroit and play your game and control time and space and don't listen to the crowd = listen to each (even w/ out staying a word) and do it.
