The NHL has been pimping Sidney Crosby pretty hard since before he even laced up the blades for his first preseason game with the Pens. That lovefest continues tomorrow night on Versus, as I learned when I received an email from the league with the subject line: “Sidney Crosby Revealed — Tuesday on Versus.”
I’m pretty sure it’s not Sid in a Speedo. But I’m really not worried one way or another because I won’t be watching. Wake me up when the league decides to start hyping some of its other players, and maybe even a player from a different continent.
If you want to read a breathless account of this television extravaganza from someone who really tries to capture the spirit of the thing, I’d direct you to go here. Early Halloween treat indeed. That’s pretty spooky.
Ever seen a blog with a longer subtitle? Not me.
In the interest of equal time, I present this rejoinder.
