Happy Birthday, Sidney Crosby

Today, August 7, is Sidney Crosby’s 31st birthday! In case you haven’t figured it out by now, the reason he wears the number 87 on his jersey is because he was born on 8/7/87. In 31 years Sid has accumulated 13 seasons in the NHL, 3 Stanley Cup victories, 2 Conn Smythe Trophy’s, 2 Olympic Gold Medals, and he’s won the Art Ross, Hart Trophy, and Rocket Richard Trophy twice apiece. That’s setting the bar pretty high for most 31 year-olds. It’s unfair, though, to compare those of us in our 30s to Sid’s accomplishments…..which is what I keep trying to tell my parents……Sid and the rest of the Pens will be back this fall on Rocky 96.5.
