Crosby Plays On

from Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star,

The pillowy lips part to reveal a mouthful of ruin, a graveyard of tombstone teeth and mutilated gums.

There’s a gap between the lower bicuspids, a V-shaped hollow through which sibilant sounds emerge, a whistle of consonants and vowels.

Sidney Crosby is lisping.

“Thith is going to be the toughetht tetht yet.’’

Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal against the Senators-at-home, he meant: Toughest. Test. Yet.

Sidney Crosby is lisping.

Low-hanging fruit, but I will not take it.

I will not.

The pillowy lips comment is hanging off the same branch Red Winger.

I see that Rosie DiManno has decided to be a disgrace to journalism in yet another sport that I enjoy.

It’s worth noting that this is far from the worst she can do. She’s also in the habit of degrading sexual assault victims in her columns.

How does this woman have job?

First the “Sens Nation” article and then this tripe?  I hope these are ironic posts.

She’s goofing on Crosby for lisping after undergoing surgery for a broken jaw??? If she wanted to take the low road why doesn’t she write about Bryan Murray’s moronic tirade concerning Karlson’s hit from Matt Cooke???  And how he should have benn suthspended!!!
