He looks [REALLY] good in red!!
OK -- superficial time again!!! With this week being Team Canada's orientation camp, we've been coming across A LOT of pictures of Crosby (and company) in their red Team Canada jerseys. We ALL pointed out the fact that Sid looks particularly HOT in red - let us take a moment to [re]reflect!! ; P
He's getting along well with Iginla
(which puts that pretty little smile on his face)
I couldn't pass this one up because I KNOW all of you have noticed this. A lot of pictures have him next to Jerome Iginla and that beautiful smile of his is brightening up his face on all of them!! I'm glad Sid is enjoying himself and the camaraderie playing for Team Canada - it looks like fun!!
Kris Letang was recently spotted (by Hollywood P.Q.) at the VIP party celebrating the 6th anniversary of Dom Rebel (designer clothing company) - looking sexy as ever (so of course he was surrounded by beautiful woman and one on his arm!)! The Cup MUST change everything!!

REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: A baby-faced, 6'2, 210lbs chocolate center. Ok maybe I did get carried away with the "chocolate center" part, but take a look at him, and tell me I'm wrong. Dark blue eyes, and hair like a chocolate waterfall. [yes, I'm in an overly romantic mood] You've also gotta love this video of him and Josh Harding (who isn't too hard on the hormones either and I may do in a later post if no one has objections.) showing us around the Wild's team facilities. There's also this ADORABLE article, wherein he takes on some local kids in a video game tournament. Wears a size 15 shoe [no, I'm not making any comments about that, minds out of the gutter ladies, and stop laughing Stephanie] He is single and resides in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia during the off-season. (The fantasy that comes to mind upon hearing that, is the beach in Nova Scotia, and he reaches up and pulls you down on the beach chair with him, where you can get your fingers caught in that fabulous chocolate hair of his... Oops, gotta stop now.) Nicknames are “Shep”, “Roscoe” and “Jimmy”. His hobbies include playing the guitar and eating. Says winning bronze medal with Team Atlantic U17 and first fight [Yup, now I know why I fell in love with him so quickly.] as his favorite hockey moments. His favorite television show is “Entourage” and favorite movies are Wedding Crashers and The 300. Lists Usain Bolt as his favorite athlete and Chris Farley as the one person he would like to meet. Says the fans are the best part of playing hockey in Min. Cheese is his favorite food. He starting skating at the age of three at Sackville Arena. Says his family are the people who most inspired his hockey career. Favorite band is Third Eye Blind and Hockey News [this made me giggle] as his favorite magazine.

As a little sidenote -- NOTICE the Penguins logo with Sid's number on his chest on his SeaDoo (COOL!)!!!
This week, Team Canada is having their olympic orientation camp and our very own Sidney Crosby is participating (looking HOTTER than ever in Team Canada red, I might add!)!! ; ) Just take a look for yourself!!

I just came across this the other day. Worn Free is a retro t-shirt company which is carried at Steve Ford's "Decades" store in Pittsburgh.
Eric Godard is seen in the picture above wearing an Ian Dury "Blockhead" Worn Free t-shirt along side his girlfriend, Myrika, who is also wearing a Worn Free tee (Janis Joplin "Family Dog").

"We are aware of the heartbreaking news," GM George McPhee said in a statement issued by the team moments ago. "At this time we ask that everyone respects the privacy of Jose and his family."
He sees / appreciates things for what they are
(things aren't "beneath" him)
There's no doubt that Sid was thrilled beyond words to win the Stanley Cup and even happier to host it for the day - for his BIRTHDAY, no less!!!
But the thing that really sticks out in my mind though is how he had no problems washing the prestigious piece of historic hardware -- using the garden hose, regular dish washing liquid and a dish cloth like you and me.
He pretty much summed it up easily with this statement:
"Just something else to do with it; I'm mean I've got it, I might as well enjoy every bit of it; I'll never complain about cleaning the Cup!"

I am back at work today (not saying that things are "back to normal" yet), but I'm hoping to have a post or two for tomorrow so that I can get back to business as usual as quickly as possible.
THANKS again for all your support - it means alot!!

IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: A career that got off to a rocky start, then got on a good roll culminating in a Stanley Cup, even. Started playing in High School, he suffered a broken leg, his first College season. However it must have been a good omen, because in his return season, he scored 20 goals / 13 assists in 23 games, while earning the Most Determined Player Award for his improvement and stellar play after recovering from injury. He then went to an evaluation camp where he played well, with an average of three points per game. There he was spotted by the assistant coach for the University of Maine. Where he played on scholarship, through the 03/04 season, scoring the game winning goal in the semifinals, before going on to fall short of the NCAA title by a 1-0 score against the University of Denver.
REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: If 'cute boy next door" is your thing, he's got it well covered. Because as far as down home looks, he's it. He's that guy you see walking on the street, and think. I'd like to snap that one up for myself. At 6'4", 245 he's definitely well "covered" in that area as well. Some things he likes are wedding crashers, and massages (don't ask me if it's giving massages or getting them. Although, I kinda think either way around, that would be a really pleasant way to spend a lonely offseason evening. In fact, a little wine in front of a fireplace, in a rustic cabin on a lake. Plaid shirts, smell of summer evening air. He reaches out, touches his fingers lightly to your chin, so your looking int those pretty blue eyes, a few locks of sandy, light brown hair stray across his forehead... Ok... enough of that. I'm going to have myself, sidetracked and be unable to finish this post.
He's also big into working out, and enjoys his time in the training room. (um you know that sidetracking I promised not to do, well, it's getting perilously close to happening right about now.) His first car was a 1993 Pontiac Sunbird. Got his first stitches at 21 from being high sticked, and his favorite non-hockey sports team is the Anaheim Angels. If he wasn't a hockey player, he says he'd like to be a pro golfer (um, yea, ok). According to his team mates, he has problems with being late to a lot of functions. He thinks Keifer Sutherland should be the one to play him in a movie. (Anyone see a resemblance, yes or no?) Likes to eat Italian food before games. (and is known to cook it himself, even. Yes, a guy that can cook, curls every girls toes.) And of course, as a perfect ending.
