from HftL reader observation, "emilyy8758" writes (THANKS!!):
It looks like Eaton is closest to Sid, beside him is Orpik I think, and Fleury is on the other end wearing a backwards baseball cap...as he always does :PSince the Penguins season ended a week or so ago, there hasn't been much in the way of recent / new things about them and that includes pics; however, I decided to go on one of my searching sprees for Sid pics and much to my surprise there were a few that I hadn't seen before (normally when I do that, its the SAME OLD PICS I've seen 1,000 times before!)!!
So here's what I got, ladies (it even comes complete with a little story / explanation!) ...
This picture was actually taken only a few months back (March 2010) when the Penguins were in Tampa Bay to play the Lightning, according to the site I found it on.
It's Sid with some "average Joe" who happened to be lucky enough to have "the opportunity to train and shoot hoops with Sidney Crosby ..." Quite honestly, I just think the lucky bastard happened to be at the same gym at the same time that Sid and the Pens were there (if you look closely there in the background, there looks to be a few other players complete with matching shirts like the one Sid is sporting ... (talk about team spirit!) I think I can make out Fleury and maybe Malkin, but I can't quite make out the other three!).
ANYWAY, this guy actually turned the opportunity / pic into a short little post for his investment blog which, suffice it to say, was the last post to appear on it. The guy's name is Mike Kane and he's involved with "foreclosure investing" from what I can get out of the little I read on his blog (which was his Sid article!) and put a spin on the story relating it to foreclosure investing (I'm assuming to get a few more interested readers) ... honestly, it's quite clever from a "D-I-Y" PR / website marketing point-of-view!!
Do you think there’s some life and business lessons to be learned here from a guy like Sidney Crosby who’s accomplished so much at such an early age? ABSOLUTELY!
I think the lessons learned from Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins is something that one can apply to life and/or their business because drive, passion and teamwork are all important in life.BUT THE BOTTOM LINE [for me] IS: Sid's looking fine in this pic, as always, and it was perfect for today's post REGARDLESS of where I found it PLUS the way / where I found it was a little amusing to me (and figured it would be for you as well which is why I shared the story!)!!!
