Who is that blushing sunshine child?! That face is going to lead me down a dark path isn't it?!

DO YOU MEAN SIDNEY CROSBY?

Oh man there’s GOT to be somebody on this website better suited to answer this question. Oooh man.

So he’s the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins! 27 years old, between 5′10″ and 5′11″ (which is a little short to be a stormtrooper hockey player), naturally great skin, member of the Triple Gold Club, notoriously fond of small humans, celebrated eater of peanut butter, one of the top scorers in the league despite a seriously unlucky injury streak, and the much-debated oft-maligned possible “best hockey player in the world” (depending on who you ask, of course). I hear his ass is insured for $10,000.

He and this guy are secretly in love (also depending on who you ask but you asked ME so yes they are in love)

Some say he’s weird. Some say he’s awkward. Some say he cannot grow aesthetically-pleasing facial hair, and, well…. he has a lot of other talents, OKAY. 

Some say he’s whiney and overrated, and they can all just LEAVE THEIR STUPID COMMENTS IN THEIR POCKETS

Happy 28th Birthday Jonathan Toews (Born April 29, 1988)

“Don’t let anyone tell you what you can or cannot achieve. Prove them wrong.”

3 time Stanley Cup champion, 2 time Olympic gold medalist, World Junior Champion, Conn Smythe Trophy winner, 5 time NHL all star, Frank J. Selke Trophy winner, Mark Messier Leadership Award Winner, youngest member to gain entry to the Triple Gold Club, and a hell of a captain.

bergy gets his watch for being in the triple gold club!

A championship in Prague would make Crosby the ninth Canadian member of the Triple Gold Club, with a Stanley Cup, an Olympic gold medal and world championship gold.

But he’s not looking that far ahead.

‘Let’s worry about the quarter-finals first,’ he said.
