Crosby is Back! with 4 points in first game of the season
Tonight Sidney played his first game in more than 10 months since suffering a concussion from a hit from Victor Hedman. Crosby showed all that the preparation and proper recovery was worth the wait as he scored on his 3rd shift in and went on to get 4 points before the night was through. In all he scored 2 goals and then assisted in goals scored by Malkin and Orpik in a 5-0 win over the New York Islanders.
Tim Hortons Sidney Crosby Tim Card
This Christmas Tim Hortons has released a new limited edition Tim Card with Sidney Crosby holding his legendary Timbits hockey jersey on the front. For those who may not know, Tim Hortons is a famous Canadian coffee shop chain and the Tim Card is their version of a plastic reusable gift card. It allows users to add money to the card and then use it at any Tim Hortons locations.
So if you can get into a local Tim Hortons and get a Sidney Crosby Tim Card for your collection since they certainly will not last long. However I am sure we will see these on sale on places like ebay for a while as opportunists go in and grab as many as they can to resell at a later date.
Cruise tours and excursions
We have a few cards that we will be using as prizes for our site in various up coming contests, so stay tuned.
Caricature of Sidney Crosby
Here is another Sidney Crosby highlight video reel showcasing some of his best goals, assists, and even a couple saves.
We were sent an email with a Caricature of Sidney Crosby to share with others.
Got a fan email from Julie of Hamilton, ONT the other day telling us about her young two year old Young Crosby Fan and how much he loves Crosby. It included this link to a pretty cute little video that we thought we would share, when he is skating around the rink with the puck, his Granfather asks him if he is going to be the next Gretzky . but listen to his response!!
Only in Canada can they skate before being toilet trained!
Penguins Fan Apreciation Night
Penguins Fan in a fishing village on the North Sea
Pittsburgh Penguins had one of their most popular fan outreach programs last Tuesday night when each player (including Injured players and those who don’t dress for the game) took part in the annual “Shirts Off Our Backs” presentation following the final regular season home game against New Jersey.
Twenty nine lucky fans from the audience were chosen at random and invited down to the ice after the game to receive game-worn autographed jerseys from each players.
When will Sidney Crosby return?
Sidney has been practicing but when will he return? Crosby, who has been out since January 6 due to a concussion, will not even start thinking about returning to his spot with the Penguins until he first can start playing full contact again, and even then he must be cleared by team doctors before he can play. With that said, look how well the Pittsburgh Penguins have done without key players like Crosby and Malkin, when Sidney does return, other teams will really need to worry, especially if he starts where he left off notching 66 points in only 41 games.
Y! Sports Greg Wyshynski and Nick Cotsonika debate if the Penguins star will come back this postseason.
Custom Crosby Chairs
While I was traveling through the Winnipeg airport last week I noticed that they had a Crosby Jersey on display, but it was not the typical way that we are all used to. The number 87 QMJHL Rimouski Oceanic Sidney Crosby jersey was upholstered into a custom made chair.
The chair was crafted by JERSEY CHAIR CO. from Headingley, Manitoba. If you like this unique type of Memorabilia then you can check their web site Jerseychair.com for more details. All of the chairs are custom crafted and they make them with your own personal jerseys or you can use one from the pros.
After checking out their web site I decided go to google to see if there are others that do this and well sure enough I found another site (Chairsrus.ca). These chairs were not quite the same as the first ones but they were cheaper and had lots of custom Crosby Chairs in their photo gallery.
