Balsillie buys Penguins

Comments

It’s official – almost. Pending NHL approval, we here at BlackBerry Cool are happy to announce the wedding purchase of the Pittsburgh Penguins by RIM Co-CEO and Chairman Jim Balsillie. The team reportedly went for approximately $175 million.

The big question remains, though. Will Balsillie keep the team in their hometown, or will he uproot them to his own hometown of Hamilton, Ontario? Too many factors depend on that, so we won’t even bother speculating. So there. Good news for a Thursday morning. I think I’m more excited that I get to post this picture again. Maybe Lazaridis will get a chance to lace up.
