Camera One: Crosby

8 Mar

Sidney Crosby gave a long, patient interview to Pierre Maguire last night on NBC Sports Network.  Video: Part 1 [link] and Part 2 [link].

The real question: How long is Sid’s folding chair going to last?

It’s easier to see in the video, but picture The Beast joining Belle for dinner that first night, trying to fit himself into a normal person’s seat.  Only Sid is both characters, because no one’s looking at Pierre.  Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time.

Crosby was his usual scandalous, emotive self, saying things like the Rangers are good, Fleury is good and he’s sick of being hurt.  He also said he won’t play “before Sunday.”  The Penguins have won seven games in a row – they’re six points behind the Rangers, and still have two games left vs. NYR.  Including Sunday.  Sidney, I think we’re onto you.

The Penguins unveiled the Mario Lemieux “Le Magnifique” statue [link] and the team attended.  Or Crosby is filming the new Bourne movie, and in this scene he’s incognito while doing recon on his target.

Maybe he’s just checking out Neal’s hair.

    While I 100% appreciate Sid’s hockey skills and think he is pretty darn cute and can’t wait for him to make a triumphant return, I am not a Crosby fangirl. He doesn’t make my cry the tears. That being said, the thought of “Jason Bourne” Crosby has just MELTED by brain. *faints*

    Jason Bourne Crosby?! I just died a little.
    Also, when Sid says things like “My conditioning’s as good as it’s gonna get” I feel a little dizzy.
    I could only sit through a few minutes of this interview because Pierre is SO ANNOYING but noticed – are they green screened in front of those Penguins jerserys?? WTF.

    Finally – I am going to be in Pittsburgh for the Pens’ March 25 game. If Crosby is back I may cry actual tears at seeing the Prince of Canada play in person.

    Eeeeeeeee! This post made my day. I’m going to be in Miami on Sunday, but if Crosby’s playing, I’m staying inside and watching the game.
    So much anticipation!
