1. 5,000 pigeons in a car. For real.

I want my mommy. For real.

See. THIS is exactly why I try to be a good person. Because if I’m going to hell, you know Satan is watching this video all, “Oh, man. PittGirl is going TO LOVE THAT!”

2. Oh, just another Sidney Crosby rocks article.

This is a kid who had to be forbidden from attending optional skates last season by coach Michel Therrien. He’s a guy who insisted on going into the Penguins’ offices last year and personally thanking the sales team. On his own, he called Angelo Esposito, the 20th overall pick in June’s draft, and welcomed him to the organization.


It’s been tagged the “House that Sidney Crosby Built.”I don’t know about that,” Crosby said, laughing. “I think the fans earned it with the support they’ve shown during tough years in Pittsburgh. The fans really stuck behind the team, and they deserve to get a new rink. As players last year, we wanted to make sure we played as well as possible so we could do our part.”


“He’s just a solid person. Between the ears and inside the chest, he’s a special guy.”

Okay, this is nuts. No way can a kid read about and hear about how awesome he is over and over again and it NOT impact his ego. Somebody needs to say something bad about Sidney Crosby before he buys into the hype. I’ll start.

Sidney Crosby, you smell! Yeah, it’s like that!

“I’m not talking about me in particular, but the role that I play as our strong safety. So, I’m not being smart by saying I’m playing 4-2 football. I’m speaking sincerely. We have four wins and two losses. Those two losses have a lot to do with me.”

Awww. It’s okay! We still love you. Like I said, you’re totally going to show up next week and you’re going to get an interception and a sack. I know it.

    5,000 pigeons in a car? What’s the point? It makes me shudder to think about how cramped and boxed up they were while in there. :(

    Sorry, PG, I’m pretty sure Sid smells like sunshine. If you want to understand his unreal awesomeness just go to Nova Scotia. Seriously, it explains everything.

    5,000 pigeons in a car? That’s what the late great Bill Burns would call a ‘target-rich environment’.
