A reader sent along this photo taken over the weekend of a curious display in the window of the Ellwood City Ledger, a daily newspaper serving Ellwood City, Pa.

The penguin is in possession of a Caps rally towel. Could this curious fellow, in a city that sits 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, be be a Washington fan?

“No,” laughed Kim Kaszer of the Ledger, when I asked her.  “Absolutely not.”

Kaszer explained that the little mascot was put in the window before the last Penguins-Caps game, and is actually eating the Caps rally towel. Adorable.
