Welcome Sidney

from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Imagine being an 18-year-old, stepping off an airplane to greet the city you will call home, and seeing a gathered of mass of people waving pictures, pucks, cameras and microphones -- wanting autographs, comments and anything else you might be willing to provide. Welcome to Pittsburgh, Sidney Crosby. "I never try to expect anything, I just try to go along with it," the Penguins' No. 1 draft pick and much celebrated prospect said of the scene at Pittsburgh International Airport last night. "It's a little bit overwhelming seeing this kind of reaction to my arrival, but I guess I'm prepared for it. I heard that there was a lot of excitement in the city. I heard how Pittsburgh was a great sports town."
