Apropos of nothing, an old press conference prior to the last Olympics, where Sidney Crosby is confronted by the crazy numerical theories of Shaun Majumder from This Hour Has 22 Minutes.
Random, post- All Star weekend thoughts on a variety of topics—some serious, most not.
- Watching Gary Bettman and Ron MacLean chatting at the ASG, I was struck by Bettman’s demeanor. He seemed to be almost vibrating throughout that interview and it led me to wonder if he has some mild neurological disorder developing that’s been unreported. (Note: I’m not in any way making a joke here. Hopefully I was just imagining things. But he seemed really jittery…). You can compare this year’s conversation with his time talking to MacLean at last year’s ASG. Bettman seemed—to me—to be much more ‘wired’ yesterday. Is there some mysterious illness at work, or was it just a sign of too much espresso? (Update: alternate theories from readers added below…)
I actually like those ads just fine, but what the hell—I enjoy cynical-obnoxiousness as much as the next guy. (or more) But even more importantly, I could probably listen to this screwball interpretation of Sidney Crosby’s voice all day.
Greg suggests that Crosby sounds like “Emo”... and I agree, but would just like to add that Emo sounds a wee bit wasted…
From the Penguins:
The Pittsburgh Penguins have published a charity cookbook, “Goal Scorers & Gourmets,” to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. In time for the holidays, the cookbook features favorite recipes from the players and team personnel as assembled by the team’s wives and girlfriends. The book also includes fun food facts for each player, cooking terms and a variety of culinary information.
Cookbooks are available at all Penguins home games through the month of December and by mail order via the Penguins website at http://www.pittsburghpenguins.com.
A good cause, and I love hockey cookbooks. I’ve also copied Sidney Crosby’s Meatball recipe below.
And if you still feel like more hockey food entertainment, František Kaberle’s Chicken Paprika made by my friend Greg last year, still ranks as one of my all-time favorite moments where hockey blogging, booze and food all came together into one delightful heart-attack-on-a-plate.
I’ve cooked it myself twice now. That’s one scary-looking chicken dish, let me tell you.
