New Fan

Cyrus is becoming quite the sports fan. I noticed last summer that he would watch TV when there was a baseball game on – and only when there was a baseball game on! He would even paw at the screen and try to capture the ball.

I had never seen him pay any attention to any other TV show until today. This is Cyrus, perched atop his scratching post, completely absorbed by the New York Rangers-Pittsburgh Penguins playoff hockey game. He even tried to capture the puck, though without success.

I’ve tried to figure out what his rooting interest is in the New York-Pittsburgh series. The only thing I’ve come up with so far is that back in the late 1980s, Cyrus’ near-namesake, Paul Cyr, was a forward for the Rangers. And it is certainly true that the most appropriate adjective one could use to describe Cy would have to be “puckish.” I welcome any additional theories!

Cy Young

It's obvious that he's a Pittsburgh Penguins fan...I'm sure he knows of the legend of Mario "Le-mew" !

Re: Cy Young

Very good... wish I'd thought of it!
