Last night around midnight, just before I turned into a pumpkin, Twitter was all ablaze with the news that Crosby will have arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist this summer. While he claimed to be in perfect health throughout his much-maligned playoff performance, it appears that was somewhat untrue.
Well, duh. No one is 100% in the post-season. He wasn’t going around blaming his play on his wrist or anything else, so bravo to Sid. Only don’t clap until after surgery.
According to the stories, Sid was unavailable for comment. This all came from “a source close to the star.” Well, we found that source:
That baby knows everything, including that her life as probably peaked WAY TO SOON and that we might be a *little* jealous. 100% of the Crosby awkwardness we adore is on display here, including the fact that he will never ever say no to someone who asks for a photo.
There’s also a chance “wrist surgery” is just code for “no more selfies,” since Sid kinda let this one phobia get away from him. That’s why you just stick to your crazy, Crosby, because there is no going back.
I had arthroscopic surgery on my knee back in high school and it’s nearly bionic now – much stronger than my un-repaired knee. It’s almost a shame to know Sid won’t spend his recovery time having any fun…
But if there’s anything we can help with, just call.
We’ll be right over.Tags: Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby
