Surgery for Sid

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.


No, really.  You’re kidding.

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:

Future Hot Dad

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.

Right about there.

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…


Be honest. You’d go to this party.

But if there’s anything we can help with, just call.


Where was this job when we were choosing college majors?

We’ll be right over.

    This is why we can’t have nice things. The Pens injury plague knows no offseason. Lame.

    Sid is a class act! By the end of his career, he will be held together by metal and plates and string and it will still not be good enough for the Pittsburgh and NHL fans. Guy can’t catch a break!

    Also, women are going nuts as to whom the blonde is in the baby photo. Hearts are being broken.

        Whaa?? Sidney Crosby has a girlfriend?? When? Where? Who? Didn’t he take his sister to the NHL Awards last month? Wouldn’t a girlfriend be more approps to take than a sister (especially if you’re 26 years old)?

        • No one is sure whether they’re still on or off. Sid is notoriously private about his life (Thank God SOMEONE in the spotlight is – we really DON’T need to know everything!) despite always being willing to talk to fans & take pictures with them (& their babies!!) There was a blonde model named Kathy who was spotted sitting with his family at the Olympics & at one of the games at MSG in the playoffs, but there hasn’t been anything else since. My feeling is that Sid wouldn’t take ANY woman but Taylor (his sister) or his mom, Trina, to the NHL Awards until they were married. He’s just THAT shy, awkward, & private about his life. I could be wrong, but that’s just the way I read him.

            A blonde model named Kathy sits with Sidney’s family at the Olympics and at one of the playoff games which are pretty public events, imo, but Sidney does not take her to the NHL awards? How interesting.

  4. With a baby. At a Home Depot. With a baby at a Home Depot! I’m not even a Crosby fan but I need to start nesting immedi-friggin-ately.

  5. So does this negate Rob Rossi’s not-what-he-would-call-girlfriend-issues theory? Be well, Sid!

    The picture of Sid and the baby is, for some ridiculous reason, the funniest thing in the world to me. I just love the thought process: see Sidney Crosby at Home Depot, talk to him, get a picture with him… and your baby. That t-shirt does fit him ever-so-nicely though.

      I hope so. Poor Sid, don’t have a broken heart and a broken wrist.

  6. I am sooooo not getting any work done the rest of the day!

  7. I’m sorry, but I can’t hear you over the sound of my brain on red alert at Crosby next to a baby in Home Depot. I won’t apologize for screen-grabbing this image. Good lord, Sid.
