Ya gots ta love Wikipedia

Yesterday, Wikipedia's entry about Sidney Crosby said he lives in California with his wife, Jessica Simpson and their three children. Today it says "Sidney likes long walks on the beach, and candle-lit dinners with his boyfriend, Mats Sundin."

That's gold, people, pure gold.

My own Sidney Crosby joke: Have you seen his playoff beard? Neither has he.

Since Sid grew up about five minutes from the house in which I grew up, and most of my friends came from Cole Harbour in my growing-up years, I have to come to his defence. Just 19 years old, and just about the best there is in the NHL. That's an enviable amount of talent! Anyone who's been to Nova Scotia knows what kind of a miracle it is to have one of the world's best hockey players, who just keeps getting better, come from such a small place. I'm not sure the current version of his team is old enough to appreciate the opportunity they have right now in the post-season, but they had the best record in the NHL since January of this year, so I'm sure the Sens won't make the mistake of taking them lightly. Now that they're a game up on Sid's Pens, they'd better not make the mistake of taking their collective foot off the gas!

I knew there was a reason I liked ya JB... I'm from Cole Harbour too! And I'd say SC has done pretty damn good for himself.

I can't disagree with a single letter of what you say, jb. My diss at Sidney is just the playoff emotions of a Sens fan living in Ottawa.

I have a lot of respect and admiration for Sidney Crosby (even if he is from Cole Harbour, and not Iroquois Falls). He is under intense pressure at a young age, but handles it with great maturity. He is truly the Wayne Gretzky of his generation, in many ways.

As I'm writing this, the anthem singer in Vancouver is letting the crowd sing part of O Canada. It sounded great. Obviously, Vancouverites have learned well from our American neighbours, and actually SING the national anthem. Good on them.

So I take it that the autographed Crosby jersey and hockey card I bought for my son should be worth something one day?

Um, Maria, to put it into soccer terms: David Beckham. :-)
