First off, let's give a little "background information" about these pictures. Yesterday, Sidney Crosby along with a few other Pittsburgh players (Paul Martin, Jordan Staal, and Max Talbot were the only others I saw pictures of) were in Cannes, France aboard the Jetèe Albert Edouard yacht to attend the film screening and after-party for "Trophy Wife."
Now ... is it me or have the Penguin players (especially Sid) hit Hollywood status??!!! I understand that this is off-season and that they should be able to do what they want in their off-time / personal lives; however, it's not sitting well with me. Am I the only one with this response?
I mean, it's getting a little "trashy" even. Why do hockey players need to attend Cannes Film Festival and / or openings of films? I don't get the connection here. The Kentucky Derby was a little bit of a stretch, but the Mint Jubilee benefited cancer research, so I could understand that. A film screening IN Cannes ON A YACHT?!! Why - what purpose does it serve the hockey / NHL community?!! To me, it's just getting a bit ridiculous especially since none of us (including Crosby) know whether or not he'll be cleared to play ever again.
LET'S PLAY HOCKEY, BOYS ... not schmooz it up with all the stars in Hollywood!!
Oh well ... today's post are "pics of the week" and not a soap box, so ENJOY (but feel free to post your opinion if you feel the need especially since I felt the need to get things off my chest - I welcome feedback!)!!!
