hockey things

* This week has been Death by Sidney Crosby. First we have all the Tim Horton's ad footage with him and Mackinnon, and then we get 23 glorious minutes of In the Room-type coverage of his hockey school and his hometown. There's so much genuine smiling and giggling in these! It makes me so happy! Also I feel they pretty thoroughly disprove Sidney Crosby: Hockey Vulcan. Like, he may or may not be a goofy weirdo (she says with love), but he clearly is also a guy who has fun and friends and who enjoys people.

* From the preseason games this week we learn:
- Kessel/Crosby/Malkin/Letang can really do some damage vs another team's JV squad. Which isn't to say I wasn't COMPLETELY DELIGHTED by goals from Olli and Phil (TWO OF THEM) and other people.
- I'm not sure if Geno has any goals yet in the preheason, but he has been a beast on the ice nonetheless. I mean.
- OTOH, this team w/out Letang, Maatta, Crosby, and Kessel is kind of unfortunate. Especially those D-guys. STAY HEALTHY, KIDS.

Wow, thanks for linking to that film about Sid's return home every summer. They must have shot part of it during the Canada Day weekend, because that's the only time they drape the MacDonald bridge with the Canadian flag.

Cole Harbour Place is where I used to take my nieces swimming. We walked by the Sidney "shrine" many times. :) I've never met him myself, but I don't know anyone who's ever had a bad thing to say about him.

OMG, that is amazing. The internet makes the world such a small place! I am delighted to hear that people in Sid's home town speak highly of him - they of anyone ought to know.
