Another Reason to LOVE Sid!!

Just wanted to share this little story, another reason to love Sidney!

I went to the game a few weeks ago against the Montreal Canadiens, and it was a great game, Sid got a Hat Trick, and the Pens did well. The best part came after the game though. When they announced the 3 stars of the game, of course Sid was one of them. When they called him as "Number One Star", he came out for his customary crowd wave. Leaning over the rail on the runway of section A21 (where the players come out from) was a young kid, probably about 6 or 7, he was leaning over the bar in hopes of getting a high 5 from Sid, but of course our capitan did one better. As he went to the runway, he lifted his stick into the young boys hands, for the coolest game souvenir. The look of joy on that little kids face was so cool, and Sid just played it cool, high fived him and went back to the locker room.

I have to say, it made me smile! I know that it was probably "nothing much" for Sid, but he made that kids night! What a great example, respecting and appreciating the fan base.
