Take a broken girl, treat her like a famous princess, give her the best seats in the house. Buy her coffee and cigarettes for the coming down, books and bathroom things for the days ahead. Tell her something true when all she’s known are lies. Tell her God loves her. Tell her about forgiveness, the possibility of freedom, tell her she was made to dance in white dresses. All these things are true.
I think the beauty of Sid is that he is such a normal person, so laid back, so down to earth. He doesn’t carry himself like he’s a star. Other athletes who play on other teams in Pittsburgh can’t have this said about them. But Sid is really something simply because of his personality and the way he treats others. So, does he have an aura? I mean, I guess it sounds like the sexy thing to say yes, but I’ve never felt that way. He’s such of an every day person. He’ll sit in his locker after games and talk to you whether you’re a teammate, someone like me who’s covered him for almost a decade, or if you’re someone he doesn’t even know.
