Astros' Jose Altuve, Sharks' Brent Burns hang out with penguins

Friday January 23rd, 2015

What a day to be an athlete. San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns met a penguin Friday. So did Alex Presley, Jose Altuve and Brandon Backe from the Houston Astros. And they weren't even the same penguin. 

Torrey Smith's son was a finalist in the Gerber Baby contest

Burns went to the zoo with his family after NHL All-Star Game media day in Ohio. The Astros went to an aquarium in Texas. These penguins are 1,200 miles apart! What an adorable coincidence. 


And Buster Posey, too! Good day for penguins.
