Treading the light fantastic, Crosby beach, Explore Frontpage on Flickr.

Another from down the beach at Crosby, most of my pictures from here of late have had the Anthony Gormley ‘Another Place’ statues out of view or as secondary features, but they are responsible for pulling in a quantity of photographers and tourists. They are made iron and each is slowly developing a personality over time, each spending more or less time in the water, some are clean, some have a skin of rust and others are covered in barnacles.

Here’s another taking a shallow paddle in the reflected light of a sunset, before taking a dip in the evening tide.

Thanks for looking

Slow Motion...Sidney Crobsy

Sid and Penguins
Slow Motion: Juvenille

Penguins and me, penguins and me, Pittsburgh Penguins and Sidney Crosby
Penguins and me, penguins and me, Pittsburgh Penguins and Sidney Crosby

Uhhhhhhh. We’re working like that, you’re watching our backs, you don’t know how to act,
Penguins and me, penguins and me, Pittsburgh Penguins and Sidney Crosby

I got Adams with me, his kids and his fans, go round calling him dearest daddy,
and when Asham joins in, that is when the party starts hopping,
hope on the table and start, diggy-diggy dancing,
slow down for me, your moving too fast,
my hip keeps popping, I’m trying to grip that stick,
keep laughing so hard as I introduce Mike Comrie,
got hockey as a disguise but his heart is for Hilary,
if your loving my team, let’s bring out my goalies,
I got MAF and Big Bad Brent Johnson,
all of our fans fell in love with the Maxime Tablot,
the Maxime Talbot keeps the girls close, like

Chorus X2

Don’t forget we got other younin in the wing,
like Chris and Nick,
Jeffery and Erick,
we like the way they came up from Oct till late in the offs,
fine teams if you’re listening you heard us, were strong,
if you gonna throw some punches, we’ll bring out our fighters,
you must have heard about Derek, Rupp and Godard,
there here to protect our pretty faces like me and tanger,
Na if you want to fight we’ll give you some cookie,
I don’t mind fighting too, if it is against you, don’t be asking a player about when I’m, fighting two,
lil playa get your things together, I aint protecting you,
I don’t think I could do better than La Benny do, you know
Orpik on the bench with , use to be hanging with Neal and Niskanen,
can two players from Dallas get along with us,
yes they can hang with us without wasting time trying to mess with us?


Chorus X2

Pittsburgh Penguins, we win, we don’t leave a point out in the open,
with puck, stick, and bruises, we hope you always want to cheer us on and believe us,
I guarantee we are gonna win , when you see ya,
and just don’t just holla out my name, like we’ll all friends,
my fans throw down, and you know that,
so stop crushin, penguins for everyone,
I’m gonna do that incredible motion and I’m score on them,
I like how that Evgeni Malkin score, acting all that,
Lemme add a little Kennedy and Letestu in on this,
would be mad, if I added a little Kovi,
I know what’s happening , this rap is so simple,
what can I say, I’m a hockey player today,
I’m rapping a little at the stadium, so you remember my team,
Pascal will pass the puck, Jordan will score,
What it gonna take for you to come cheer for penguins and me, like

Chorus X2

Jarome going to Pittsburgh

My emotions about the Iginla trade are all over the place. I am devastated that he’s leaving, but if he had to go anywhere, I’m okay with it being Pittsburgh, especially compared to how I felt when I thought he was going to the Bruins.  

The flames are nothing now. I cannot believe they made that crappy of a deal. They are going to have to have to trade away the rest of their decent players just to try and make up for how much they dropped the ball on this deal.  Flames fans are basically not even going to have a team to cheer for. They traded the most beloved player in Flames history and gave their  fans nothing in return.  They just took him from them basically.  And now the team is going to slowly fall apart. 

And I just cannot wrap my mind around this new Pens team. It is INSANE. Neal, Depuis, Kunitz, Fleury, Letang, Sutter, Morrow, Malkin, Iginla and Crosby.  This is crazy.  The team Canada connections. The number of captains and leaders on this team. The Sutter and Iginla connection.

Too many things to think about. So much heartbreak. So much potential. I just don’t even know how to feel.
