The Sporting Birthday - Sidney Crosby
Ice Hockey : NHL great turns 30 today
For those that don't know who Sidney Crosby is.... he is widely considered the best player in the NHL and has joined the likes of Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux as a modern day ice hockey legend. He has spent 12 seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins and is also a really nice guy!
He has won 3 Stanley cups, an Olympic Gold medal, A World Championship and is was the youngest ever captain to win the Stanley cup (21 years and 10 months old).
Unlike many players that are hyped beyond belief before drafted, Crosby has gone on to be as good as everyone said he would be. For those more familiar with football, think Wayne Rooney, he did it too.
Happy birthday Sidney!
