Okay, one comment: When Sid takes the ice tonight, I’m either going to cry or pee myself a little. Either/or.

    Either/or? I’m betting both.

    I’m going with both, too.

    I’ll probably just cry. At my age peeing myself doesn’t have the cachet it once did.

    Could be that some jagoff turn the AC on in my office

    When I first heard that he was coming back, I ran outside to tell my husband who was mowing the lawn. Because of this, I had to shout. Three of my neighbors popped out of nowhere and we all had a mini cheer session in our respective lawns.

    Pittsburgh. Ain’t no other place on Earth quite like here.

    Hey! You all, down there? Take better care of our CANADIAN boy this time round ‘eh? ;) Stay healthy, Sidney.

    Against the Islanders too: Get ready Steve Mcintyre, you are the new Dave Semenko. Gotta love it, this has a playoff feel to it.

    The shot of him at the 1:02 spot in the video is pretty darned cute.

    I am going to cry. That’s for sure and I am not ashamed.

    Shared the video also on FB and Twitter because it is PERFECT!

    Yeah, I’ll cry. And get chills when CEC goes completely batshit when Sid comes on the ice.

    I either cried or peed myself a little just watching that.

    For Pens fans outside Pittsburgh: VS has bumped their scheduled game to carry the Pens/Isles game due to Crosby’s first game back.

    If anyone even breathes on Sid, I want MacIntyre to beat the guy senseless.

    @unsatisfied: if you’re unsure whether you cried or peed yourself, maybe we better work on the posture. Try sitting up a bit straighter. And wear light-colored pants; those should end any uncertainty about bodily reactions to current events. Just trying to help.
