First, Against the Odds was found on youtube. Now, courtesy of The Pensblog, comes One from the Heart. A viewing is highly recommended, followed by a reading of Pat's article from this summer, counting down the best lines from the movie.
Uploaded by the same amazing youtube user, a poem by Dave Crawley about the '91 cup.
If nothing else, skip to about 2:25 into the video. Trust me, you will not regret it.
ESPN's latest attempt to prove they don't hate the NHL: a featured article on Sid by Scott Burnside, "The Other Side of Sidney Crosby". What I found interesting, other than that he named his dog after me (or was it some sort of convoluted Mike Lange reference?), was Fleury's story about a prank they pulled on Crosby when he was a rookie.
"During a time when opposing players and critics were accusing Crosby of whining too much to officials, his teammates regularly hid baby clothes or baby shoes in Crosby's dressing room stall.Yeah, Sid might have won the Tom Barrasso Trophy for biggest clubhouse jagoff two years ago (since there wasn't much competition), but I don't think anyone else would have fared much better in that situation. It's time to let it go.
Did Crosby think it was funny? Not really, Fleury admits."
