Sid is the best player in the game. The face of the NHL. When the best player/face of the industry is out for half a season and starts the next season with no concrete idea for returning, you better believe their will be a press conference about it. Why wouldn't there be? Sports is business yo'. Advertise yo' product and make good business so those of us who enjoy following it can do so because people is paying attention. The name of the game isn't "let the people Dr. Garbanzoure this stuff out on their own, no need to encourage them or keep them on board with any type of reason to believe something awesome might happen. Nah, let us all be unbiased and leave the hype at the door, like any good business does." Business yo'.
My problem isn't with the Penguins or the NHL's advertising or informing the public, it's with the highlights shows force-feeding it to people who likely already have heard the news. I just wanna see RNH's latest goal haha
But seriously, did you see Sid's first goal? That was ridonkulous. I'm glad he's back and I don't mind the coverage at all. He's the best player in the world and I think the amount of coverage is deserved. Could you imagine if Lebron James was out of the NBA for a year with an injury and then came back and dropped like 60 points in his first game back? What do you think the coverage would be like for that?
Sid has been the one bright spot in an otherwise miserable season of hockey for me. Don't let them take that from me Alex, it's all I have.
4 points in his first game back definitely deserves all the attention it got. It's the constant "nothing has changed" news stories over the past 10 months that really got under my skin and made me bitter about everything to do with him now.
wasn't mine. Someone higher up threw it and it landed on the guy behind me
Even better! Unless I was wearing a shitty hat I would be hesitant to throw mine, but I bet it's pretty easy to get caught up in the moment. What do you mean by "legit hat trick" thought? Is there another type?
Looks like Reimer is back in action and getting the start against Boston tonight. With the tear the killer B's have been on I'm going to keep him benched (fantasy-wise) anyway.
