March 14, 2015 – Nothing like the cross-pollination of sports and science and The Pittsburgh Penguins have been having a good time via Twitter with the Discovery Channel. Until today, when Discovery dropped the mic.
The build up started with a penguin factoid by Discovery:

Awe. Cute banter between two different worlds that have penguins in common. Then, referencing the absence of the Penguins from the NHL playoffs, Discovery fired off a burn that melted Pittsburgh’s ice:
@penguins Strange. Our latest observations show no Penguin activity currently on ice in Pittsburgh. Where did they go? — Discovery (@Discovery) May 14, 2015
We’ll see if the Penguins respond, but in the meantime, did Discovery go to far with the pointed barb? Funny or Offensive? Vote and Comment now!
