Crosby offers message of encouragement, gratitude

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, in what he described as a “selfie video,” told fans Saturday that they should follow the guidance of health professionals in combatting the coronavirus pandemic and expressed thanks to the medical personnel who are on the front line of that fight.

“I just want to take a moment here to encourage everyone to stay patient and continue to stay inside,” he said, because “that’s the best way we can beat this thing.”

Speaking directly to the doctors, nurse and other medical staffers, Crosby said, “we appreciate everything that you guys do and we’re very thankful for it.”

Crosby message, which was released by the team, concluded on an optimistic note:

“We’ll get through this,” he said. “And get things back to normal here soon.”

I’m currently watching Sid score his second goal of game 2 from the 2009 Pens/Caps Playoff Series. I can’t believe that was 11 years ago. Seems like 11 years since the last game against NJ. Man I miss hockey. I’m quietly shouting Let’s Go Pens!


So good to hear from Sid, knowing that not being able to play hockey, for a hockey player, is probably 100 per cent worse than for us not to be able to watch it. But (I think) it’s so not like him to do a “selfie”, and again SO like him to publicly appreciate the front line workers, and be an encourager to the rest of us!!!


Oh, yeah, and to be respectful and obedient to those in authority. So “Sid-like”!
