Sidney Crosby Days

Happy Sidney Crosby Days! We are now 87 days away from the start of the 2009-2010 season. I'm getting excited already! It's going to be a long summer, fer sher.

Since we already know how fabulous our Captain is, we're not going to bore you with stats that have been reiterated throughout each every season in which Sidney Crosby has been in the NHL. So, sit back and enjoy the beauty and wonder of our Captain in pictures (and video)!

I may or may not have fallen in love with Sidney Crosby after watching this video...

Ok, I lied. I am going to include some numbers for your reading pleasure.
What can I say, I can't resist fun facts!

The Onion = genius.

"I bought my dad this really cool visor" - I don't think that quote was made up. I think Sidney Crosby would buy his dad a visor and would think that it was the epitome of cool.

And then he would laugh his girlish laugh and run off to show Mario his gift shop haul. Just like I would do with my parents when I had been on a school trip and had bought yet another neon pencil/eraser/ruler combo.

27- Quincey (COL)
32- Lehtonen (ATL)
51- Filppula (DET)
