playoffs final

It was my wife’s birthday Wednesday. We went out to dinner (just like every other night), and as we finished up dessert, I couldn’t help but think about Sidney Crosby.

People always ask me, “What’s Sid like? What makes Sid so great?” Well, I do believe I have found the secret to his success.

It’s dessert.

He loves dessert, and it has been the driving force behind our playoff push.

From Magnolia Bakery in New York, to Georgetown Cupcakes, he refuses to be denied.

So if you’re ever questioning that dessert at the end of dinner, just remember, Sidney Crosby would … and it has worked out well for him.

Happy 32nd Birthday, LeBron!

Mike turned 32 in February 1995, a month before he came back to basketball.

He didn’t win any of the trophies above until he was 33 (in 1996), so LeBron has a chance to take “the lead” this season.

After that…well, Mike won 2 more Season MVPs, 3 Titles, and 3 Finals MVPs. I doubt LeBron will manage to put together a similar run.
