From the Getting Ahead of Ourselves Dept.: Puck Daddy lieutenant and Going Five Hole blogger Sean Leahy passes along word that Shop.com has this Reebok Pittsburgh Penguins 2008 Eastern Conference Champions Locker Room Hat on sale right now for $28.99. It features a 100% cotton Conference Champions graphic embroidered on the sandwich bill, contrast-color stitching on back panels, adjustable VELCRO® brand closure, no less than six sewn ventilation eyelets and it comes with a Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle! (Air Rifle may not be included.) Sadly, Leahy points out that there doesn't seem to be a companion Philadelphia Flyers conference champions hat on sale. Nothing on Shop NHL yet, although the Penguins golf hat gets you a free sleeve of balls. We're sure this early release isn't the Penguins' doing; but the Hockey Gods no doubt do not smile upon this premature celebration.
