Mighty Penguins, and all TRLers

Yorkshire Pie is attending as are many others  :D

 

I do want anyone and everyone to join us, all the people who know nothing of MP need not worry, I only joined in after most of em had been there, done that, worn the t-shirt and beggared off. It was all a mystery to me to be honest. I got the Pengiuns jacket under false pretenses according to Gurner 

 

Anyway, I hope lots of new people join us, it'd be boring otherwise - I'm going to ask the Turnbridge WMC, where we go, if they mind us descending - I'm pretty sure that they'll welcome the bar taking etc, but it is a members club - which keeps it to a lovely clientele, the HGSA meet there (no it's not tiny)

 

If they say it's ok, and we can sort of sign everyone in, it's just a few minutes walk, with ample parking, to the stadium and equally, easy to find from the train station etc

 

If for whatever reason they decline, I reckon the Spoons will do

I don't know that one myself, probably a new name now I suppose, it's not our end of town (and you know I want everything on my doorstep) but I assume him indoors will do, I'll ask , or google it and find out this aft

 

thanks for the suggestion

Can I ask why the group was named 'the penguins'

Got excited reading the thread title I've got a cracking penguin costume at home.

Much like the national coach, I may have to go on and reccy the facilities before the World Cup. I think I might also use it as an excuse to boo Elliott Whitehead if he plays on Friday.

 

And Kopczak, of course.

ha ha I see some of the beggars trying to get you to come dressed in it - bring it with you though, we'll be fighting to wear it after one pint

 

I wasn't around at it's conception and apart from mysterious meetings and the odd comment I'm still not sure. Various links to crustaceans, claws and crows over the years have enlightened me no further.

 

Some of those in the know are in the attached thread and can maybe shed some light on the matter, but it may be that you had to 'be there' , or at least be at the next meet up and maybe all will be revealed mwhahahahaha 

 

It's a shame some of the pics are missing, and more importantly the people who they belong to...some are coming via links on fb, but if anyone knows the others, please get in touch - we miss you (cue the they're here but under another name posts)

I meant check out the pub you suggested this Friday night, and then abuse ex-Bulls at the game.

I was around at the time and my memory is a little hazy but I vaguely recall it all started with a debate about which was best - Monkeys or Penguins. Penguins won and the rest, as they say, is history.

What are the Mighty Penguins? Despite being on the board for a decade and hearing them mentioned numerous times, I've never actually asked what it is. Is it like some made up joke team or something?

 

The first rule of the Mighty Penguins is that we don't talk about the Mighty Penguins... but only because no one still on here can really remember how it all started. Not even me and I've been on here since what seems like the dawn of time. The dawn of the TRL forum at any rate. :)

 

However, the mystery only adds to the legend!

 

Round of applause for Maggie for starting this thread. It's a great idea to breathe new life into the Penguins and encourage TRLers to meet up together before big games.

Brill Hornetto, more peeps :))

 

Thanks for the applause John, simple ideas are always the best. Maybe I'll get a free Giants ST with the amount of people  buying tickets who probably wouldn't have hee hee (if you don't ask you don't get)...maybe a Leigh one too if my posts on the main board have encouraged any sales for them or the WC game there (nah they can't afford it, and I already have an invite for one game in the CEO's box for my efforts on twitter)

 

Seriously, it's far nicer to discuss topics on here once you've met someone and can then understand their tone, or know when they're pulling your leg

 

Hope to see your there too John x

I can't remember - weren't the Mighty Penguins an occasional solo team or something? I certainly have - or did have - a Mighty Penguins shirt somewhere with "WCE" on the back. It might actually fit now, since I've lost loads of weight since those days!

Yorkshire Pie is attending as are many others  :D

It was all a mystery to me to be honest. I got the Pengiuns jacket under false pretenses according to Gurner 

 

Anyway, I hope lots of new people join us, it'd be boring otherwise - I'm going to ask the Turnbridge WMC, where we go, if they mind us descending - I'm pretty sure that they'll welcome the bar taking etc, but it is a members club - which keeps it to a lovely clientele, the HGSA meet there (no it's not tiny)

 

If they say it's ok, and we can sort of sign everyone in, it's just a few minutes walk, with ample parking, to the stadium and equally, easy to find from the train station etc

 

If for whatever reason they decline, I reckon the Spoons will do

You should include me in the Facebook conversation, and Phil C - him and GAZ (not here much these days) were regulars at meet-ups for test matches etc with yours truly back in the day.

Whatever happened to Justin, the Norweigan/Irish/Aussie who had something to do with it all?

Penguins started a bit like fantasy league, when a poster suggested " who could play where if we had an imaginary team" backed up of course by the fact that  Penguins are far harder the Monkeys will ever be.

 

I'm already looking forward to Shudders !!!

 

Oh the memories are all buried on the shores of a lake of beers and other drinky poohs.

Sorry, I thought I had included all my RL links ...and I've just looked and can't see you on my list :( ......I tend to have a clear out every so often and I must have unfriended you ....muchos sorrious...I thought I'd included Gav, I'll do it again and he can link you and Phil C in...you may all have to send me friend requests and see pictures of cats though ;)

 

JWAD has been in touch, it's his busy time so he won't be at this one but says he'll be in touch for early next season

 

I hope I've just added the right Gaz ----ooops I've just added a GAV....ah well, he loves RL so no matter...he'll be slightly confused by the request to add you and Phil thought - why can't we all be grown ups and use our full names, it'd make it simpler for me

Can anyone remember who was in the original Penguin's squad, I've looked for my shirt and it must be boxed up with all the old rugby shirts in the loft.
