Amazing he's 24 and has been in the league 6 years.

Here's to many more healthy years Sid!

I don't think I ever told anyone this but leading up to that lottery I had two visions: 1) Crosby going to San Jose (but I think that was because the Sharks jersey kind of reminds me of the Rimouski Oceanic) and 2) Crosby going to Pittsburgh. The whole day I believed that those were the only two options and when San Jose got pick #12 I believed whole-heartedly that Crosby was then going to Pittsburgh.

I remember that day of the draft lottery...came home from work and got online...headlines everywhere plastered with "Penguins win chance to draft Crosby"

I screamed and ran around the house like a 7 year old that got legos for christmas.

6 years later...I still do that...except with a beer in my hand.

Happy birthday Sid!

Olivia Munn of G4TV's Attack of the Show got you an apple tv, which she apparently wants you to know she likes. A lot.



And I hired these annoying girls to sing for you.



Better you than me.

I watched it live. I was so sure we were going to get screwed (worst team in the league the year before the strike and still obviously were at or near the bottom), and as the envelopes kept being opened, and no Pens' symbol, started to hope. When we were in the last couple, I almost could not breathe during the whole commercial break. When they opened the envelope showing it was us, I can not remember ever reacting to anything like I did to that. I am not at all ashamed to admit that I started jumping around and screaming like a little girl. I knew what it meant for this team, and how much more important than even a cup was.

If you want some fun, and have some time, go look back at the Rags and Flyer boards during that draft lottery and just before, and you will get some clue why they became as they are about him. The school girl gushing about him before they found out he went to us did a complete 180 degree turn once those balls fell as they did and it has been a lot of the same ever since.

What's messed up is that when the Penguins won the lottery, I actually wanted Gilbert Brule, lol. God damn was I wrong. When the Pens took Crosby, I got on board very quickly. I didn't really pay much attention to prospects, I heard a ton about Brule and then a lot about Crosby, heard about enough phenom's to be skeptical.

So thankful for the Pens taking Crosby though.

Rangers fan coming in peace...well sort of.

Happy birthday to my most hated enemy, and my his head hold up. I missed him in a weird way, like Batman without the Joker.

He's getting up there in age. Trade him to the Leafs for Schenn and Kadri and reap the benefits. In Shero we Trust.

8/7/87 isn't a weird coincidence, folks. Gary Bettman , in collaboration with Crosby's parents, made sure he was born on that day. In other words, IT WAS RIGGED.

Can't believe he's 24 already. The crazy thing is that he's still super young. Happy Birthday Sid.

Greatest birthday cake ever. I think every member of this board should get a cake like this on their birthday with their favorite player's name and number. And if you're at my party, you get shots of Vitale Bourbon and Free Candy (jawbreakers in the shape of a C) with your 71 cake. If you want to test your skills, James Neal and some kid named Morrow will be out back on the fake ice with the net, some sticks and pucks and the radar gun, giving pointers.

He has not achieved the status of someone who has won the Cup and then repeated as champion. This is a legit benchmark he must achieve. Because he's Sid, and Sid scoffs at benchmarks and laughs in the face of "can't".
