The Penguins' latest captain? A prosthetic leg

It's been one hell of an impressive week for amputees in sports. Double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius of South Africa won an appeal and will compete for a spot in the Beijing Olympics. John Siciliano, who lost most of his right leg in a 1993 car accident, competed on the season premiere of "American Gladiators" with a prosthesis (and yet those bastards still made him climb the cargo net in the Eliminator ... awkward). And now Tecmo from Pittsburgh Sports and Mini-Ponies points us to a rather amazing story about a hardcore Pittsburgh Penguins fan named Albert Guilianelli who was recently fitted with a Pens-themed prosthesis:

As if you needed any more evidence that Pittsburgh sports fans are absolutely insane about their teams, watch that video to understand the lengths gone to profess the local love.

That's a prosthetic leg. Adorned with a massive Penguins logo. And a captain's C on the back. Man, I want one of these and I luckily have both of my legs.

"If they win the Stanley Cup, I'll put the Stanley Cup on it." We're going to hold you to that, chief.
