The answer of course is that Cialis causes kinky time-warp sex.
Lets not confuse Viagra with Cialis. Cialis lasts 4-5 days, so my ex-wife tells me.

Sidney hates children, in reality he probably would have approached them, and said something like, "HA HA! I play in the show! You actually think I would waste my time skating around a pond with YOU pipsqueakes! Good luck becoming accountants you little juvies! HAR HAR HAR!!!!" And walked back to the bus in Clint Eastwood fashion.

Crosby is like the worst player in the leauge right now. UMMMMM, he is younger then all the players on my team, but he sucks.

I want to join in the hate.

Ummmmm, Crosby whines too much. . I wouldnt want him near my team. Right guys? YOu guys agree? You guys also wouldnt want him on your team right?

Sorry I just wanted to join in. Saying Random hatred things is fun. Even though is has no reason it.

They are so retarded. Who approves them? They seriously have a board of people who approve the commercial and then pitch the final idea to the big boss who then agrees to go with it? Unbelievable. I could understand if there was one marketer who oversaw everything and had carte blanche right through to airing. However, these go to a board, different ideas are pitched, a handful approved, then to managers for funds and production, then aired. My point is that they are approved by lots of people and are retarded, wouldn't someone stand up and say so?
I agree, they have a horrible publicity department. Bell comes in a close second (He did it, he did it!!!).

I would sign Ovechkin instead of Crosby to market my product. At least he has a personality.

He would be a good fit for ESPN.

I don't get why any of the other players get off the bus. Staal is younger so this kind of game would be more up his alley.

Then Sidney dominated the kids, and is all high fiving Ovechkin style, I just don't get why he's so into it, he's an NHL top player.

Then, the dopey dad comes in coffee in hand, why are the other parents speachless.

Finally, the bus is fixed, and the bus driver calls Sidney aboard, but it all seems so staged, did he expect Sidney to run off to play when the bus broke down? Is this something that happens often?

How many things don't belong here?

1) Would the Penguins be taking a bus along such a remote path?

2) None of the kids or their parents ask for autographs or pictures.

3) Sidney Crosby walks off the bus by himself.(No Penguins staff or teammates along, if for no greater reason than just sheer curiosity.)

4) Why would such an apparently small isolated rink be equipped with lights?

Has anyone spotted anything else?

The bus didn't break down...the driver pulled over because he was strung out on ranch dressing.

Pretty sure that was Gretzky and Sundin.
Sundin has been in a few hockey commercials.

You don't iron your jeans? It helps accentuate the taper.

Why do the kids all wear Timbits jerseys on an outdoor rink anyways? And parents randomly watching with Tim Horton's?

I call BS, I'm starting to think it's just an advertisement attempting to capitalize on Crosby's popularity.

I always thought it was a 30-second documentary produced by the NFB but you just may be on to something.

I'm still wondering how those turtles got so big in that movie I watched the other day. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was it? Ah. I guess it was because they were mutants... and ninjas.

It's a terrible commercial.

I'm sick of the NHL marketing Crosby as if he's Bobby Orr or Wayne Gretzky (Yes, I know that the commercial had nothing to do with the NHL, but it is a result of the way that the NHL has marketed him). They should be marketing Ovechkin. Crosby has the personality of a sponge. Ovechkin has the most entertaining personality in the NHL at the moment. He's also the most exciting player to watch.
