On today’s episode of Extreme Diplomacy with Sidney Crosby, Strombo sits down with Sid:
Something about this video keeps breaking the link, try this if you can’t see it.
To discuss whatever they are talking about while this plays in my head:
If there’s a pseudo-boyband version of a song, I prefer it.
Sid does get all cute talking about MacKinnon, like he’s a Scout Troop leader. I guess it’s a relief from the usual business of deflecting questions: “Do you hate your boss?”, “Are you too old now?”, “What is taking so damned long?”
As a publicist, we dream of guys like this: upload the script, read the script, act natural while saying exactly what I told you to. As a person, I may have dozed off during the interview. At least this chair looks up to the task for once. No way he could sit all the way forward without flipping it.
On a different channel, Captain Partypants himself, Jonathan Toews, is having more fun in 2:18 than we’ve had since wakeboarding.
He wears this shirt like it’s those shorts too.
I know Sid did the self-depriacting, hilarious Cabbie “selfie” interview. We loved it, and Crosby probably had to breathe into a bag afterward. Jon, on the other hand, has this whole “I’m fun now” thing on lock.
Hold up: waterslides. Please let that be the next charity participation trend.
So we make fun of “Captain Serious,” and Jon changes his tune. Then we make fun of his game face and Jon claims it looks like:
That’s about a hundred derps shy of a Hawks broadcast, but we’ll let it slide.
The Penguins are off till Thursday, while the Hawks host the Flames on Wednesday. It’ll give Jon a chance to score his first goal of the season (0G, 2A in 2 games), and catch up a little with Sid’s 246 point pace (3G, 3A in 2 games).
