1. Ruth Ann Dailey tips her hat to PittGirl and then writes the kick ass-est “Luke is a stupid little plagiarizing kid” piece ever.
2. The Toronto Star has taken to calling Sid the man-boy or the boy-man.
The record will show that Sidney Crosby came in to last night’s game against Toronto in a 98-way tie for 147th place in the league scoring race.
Mathematical incompetence and late game scores from out west prevent us from formally updating the goal table.
But the 20-year-old left town having broken his ’07-08 cherry – twice, for good measure, including the game winner – and all’s right again in Sid World.
“I’ve had some pretty memorable games here,” Crosby casually observed afterwards, as close as the boy-man will get to struttin’ it because vanity is not permitted for hockey’s biggest superstar.
Every time I read something about how awesome Sid is, I just get this nagging tickle in the “Used to be Awesome, Now Sucks Ass” file of my brain, scaring me that some day I’m going to file Sidney there. I can’t think of any new way to say it except maybe in French, but really, Sid? Please don’t ever ever change and if you ever are in need of an assistant to follow you around 24/7/365 to be on hand to recognize and violently bitch slap your dormant ego should it ever rear its ugly head … well … I’d like to fill out an application.
3. Just a reminder to you kids.
Don’t do drugs, yo. PittGirl doesn’t do drugs, but if I did, I imagine this is a hallucination I would have.
I could have gone my whole life without seeing Jim Roddey in his PJ pants and Sally Wiggin looking like she’d like to offer to turn my dog into a pumpkin carriage. Image? Seared.

4. Realty Times tries to sell Pittsburgh to you by telling you basically, “Everyone is leaving Pittsburgh! It’s a great place to move to!”
Also? Someone might want to tell Pittsburgh Passion defensive back Sarah Beauchamp that hot oil splattered on your boobies hurts like hell. Maybe wear something more than a bra next time.
But in other news. Holy shit! That’s a FOOTBALL PLAYER?! Girls rock.
