It’s tomorrow.  It’s the day.  TOMORROW.  Holy heck, I’m freaking out.

Sidney Crosby will return  to the Penguins lineup Monday night vs. NYI.  Disco Dan says he should play around 15 minutes.   He’ll go on the Dupuis/Kunitz line, leaving the Neal/Sullivan/Geno line intact (for now).

To everyone who texted/Tweeted us with the news, while I was eating pizza after the Redskins game, THANK YOU.  I had a full thirty seconds of screaming in the car when I saw it.  It looked like this:

Mixed with this:

And somewhere in Pittsburgh, Sidney thinks of us all spazzing out and just:

The moral of the story is:

But let’s be honest, it’s really this:

The game is on Versus at 7 PM.  I’ll be the one rockin’ #87 on the DC Metro.  Somebody say something, I dare you!

  1. I’ve read you blog for a while and never got the nerve to comment. I thought THIS would be a perfect opportunity. I had been going back and forth with my friends about going to the islanders game and thought it probably wouldn’t be worth it. I changed my holiday plans and left for NC a couple days early. I am kicking myself right now!

    -So wonderfully happy right now though!

    • Welcome, Amanda! We are bummed for you, but it’s one more fan screaming at the TV tomorrow night. We hope to hear from you more!

      • Thank you for the welcome! Brothers family does not follow hockey so I will be screaming at my laptop tomorrow night instead.

    So happy I’m going to wear both of my Crosby jerseys tomorrow! Happy Sid Day everyone!

    The news of Canada’s Golden Prince returning to the ice is SO BIG that CBC will be carrying the game. An Islanders vs. Pittsburgh game. It’s like the gold medal game all over again.

  6. I’m like Buddy the Elf in the revolving door because of this.

  7. I saw someone very nonchalantly mention his return over The Twitter. I’m honest to goodness surprised that the Internet (or Canada) didn’t spontaneously combust over the news of NHLJesus coming back.

    • Let’s be clear: Canada is burning at the news of NHLJesus/Canada’s Golden Prince returning. HonoUrary Canadians/Fauxnadians welcome to join in the celebration.

  8. Merry Sidmas!

    As a die hard Flyers fan, I’m probably going to get stoned (and not the fun kind) on Broad Street for saying this, but I’m really looking forward to seeing him return…oh, and for getting to activate him from IR on my fantasy team and watch the points tally!

    I’d really hate to be the first opponent who makes contact with Sid

  9. Also! Michalek is back tonight also. The Pens roster is almost 100%; we are just missing Lovejoy but they don’t play him every game anyway. So the Islanders will be the first NHL team to face the Pens in their pure form. I almost feel bad for them. Hahaha just kidding.

    That is all.
