Even though this picture is a few weeks old, it's still relevant as it's a picture of our Captain with his most prized possession right now.
Look at him, he's content and there's a certain look of relief on his face, don't you think? Kena brought that up when we were talking about seeing the videos and pictures on TV and the internet. He does look like he's happy to have finally won the NHL's most coveted award - the pressure is off!
ENJOY IT SID; you definitely deserve it!!!!!

Cathy Burgess, general manager of Cole Harbour Place, has been in touch with the Crosby family in order for the mural to be auctioned off when Sidney brings the Cup to Cole Harbour and has requested that he sign the mural as well. The mural will become the prized-possession of the highest bidder of a silent auction during Cole Harbour's celebration of the Penguins Championship win (the date of which is still yet to be determined) and the money raised will be put towards the expansion of Cole Harbour Place.
Bidding is now open and will be closed on the night of the upcoming Cup celebration in the hopes to raise as much as $2,000 - $3,000 (quite honestly, I'm betting on their getting a whole lot more money raised than that especially if Sidney signs it!).
“I have decided to have my work do something for someone else,” he [Matyas] said. “And you have to have a vision and make it mean something. I want Cole Harbour Place to make a lot of money.”
Ovechkin is not afraid to be out in the open! i saw him like five times walking around in the Palms Casino, my mom said "Mr.Ovechkin" each time we saw him and he smiled(his ugly little smile) said "hi" and ran away because we had our Penguin Gear haha...he didn't deserve MVP...if it was up to the people in the audience that night it would have sooo been Geno! Soooo many people were screaming "GENO GENO" and maybe one person was saying "OV"! in fact I think that the section i was in were all penguin fans! which was nice! one of the guys screamed "HAL GILL IS MY MVP!" it was too funny! there was definitely a large number of penguin fans there! before it even started on live TV people were chanting "GENO! GENO!" It was nice to see Max and Geno there! but no Sid...that surprised me!

The respect he has for Pittsburgh and the fans!
At the end of the Stanley Cup celebration parade when he was up on stage at the podium, who does Sid thank first and foremost??? Us, the fans!! He let us know how much he appreciated our support and loyalty throughout the season and that we are "unmatched by no other" and deserve to be the City of Champions and the Stanley Cup. WHAT A GUY!!!
It was hot gossip at first, but confirmation was made by Hunter's rep later in the day.
"Can Associates Limited regret to inform you that the August wedding of Rachel Hunter and Jarret Stoll has been cancelled and the couple have decided to split," Hunter's rep says in a statement. "We ask you to respect Rachel and her family's privacy during this extremely upsetting time."Several reports have said that Stoll e-mailed guests to inform them the wedding was off, but failed to inform Hunter who "has been left confused and heartbroken after Jarret failed to give her a reason behind the cancellation."

He's confident without being cocky!
Just look at that face and tell me he doesn't look like he knows what he's doing (like "BRING IT ON!")
Anyway, Jordan, TK, Scuds -- still adorable, ENJOY!!!

Well, on this fine Wednesday, I'm offering up the adorable Douglas Murray. To be drooled on and admired in all his bone-crunching, hard-hitting hockey glory. I hope I'm not to distracted during the next Stars vs. Sharks game.
IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: A strapping defenseman at 6'3 240 (yes, not a typo, 240 and he skates too), he led the Sharks in hits in the (08/09) regular season (175) and lead the team in hits in the post season with 21. He fought George Parros in Game 3 of the WCQF at Anaheim on April 21 (and as far as I'm concerned he gets a cookie just for that). He had 38 penalty minutes in 75 games for the Sharks this year and ended the regular season with a +6 which is particularly impressive for a guy who can also do this. OH and THIS -
That video is 5 seconds of pure melting panties. and I don't usually put "melting panties" in the "hockey" section. But, oh never mind, just go watch.
REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: DO NOT call him "Doug" [or you'll tangle with his mother]. (He prefers to be called "Douglas, because, when pronounced with a Swedish accent, "Doug" sounds like "dog". [I don't blame the guy one bit.]) But besides that... Well look at him. He might try to be a bad-ass hockey player. But look at those cheeks!! Who does he think he's fooling. Ok, I'm done with the "aw, how cute" moments, well probably not. But you all probably don't want to hear it anymore. So I'll move on. He's from Sweden. In fact, for Farmarlaget (his sweedish team) he was named fan favorite two years in a row. Mostly due to his CRUSHING style of play [yea, right, like the women in Sweden don't watch hockey too.]. Which the Czechs were making noise about in this years worlds. Go figure.
A COUPLE FUN FACTS
from the Sharks Website:
- Nicknamed "Crankshaft"
- A managing partner of UberTap, a hands-free, three-spouted keg tapping system. Yes, that's beer, people.
Sorry, but pretty much all I want to do is look at his chest. Oh, he plays hockey you say... I guess I was distracted. Yea, I was. I forgot to mention he's blond, pretty bad, huh?

The way he handled Kirk Maltby
(without any apologies)!
I could only find one video and it's not the best because you can barely see it, but there are many Detroit fans who are crying "foul" about it and I just see it as Crosby "taking care of business!"
Q. Kirk Maltby spoke after the game about the little incident or maybe run?in that you two had. He gave his side of it. I wondered if you can explain from your side what maybe occurred.
SIDNEY CROSBY: Yeah, he was doing what he always does. You know, he was giving guys lip service and things like that. And you know, I two handed him on top of the foot there as we were skating by. So he felt like it was necessary to keep talking after the game, and I thought I'd whack him and that was it.
Dawn Harvey is from Herring Cove and has been following Crosby for many years starting when he played for the Rimouski Oceanic in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
She actually designed the tattoo herself three years ago, but just recently added the number "87" to the design as a tribute to her favorite player.
"I knew I always wanted a hockey tattoo because hockey is a big part of my life. So I just went for it," she said Sunday, just a few hours before Game 2 on the Stanley Cup playoff series between Crosby’s Pittsburgh Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings.Read the rest of the article, "Crosby makes lasting impression," at The Chronicle Heralt METRO.
