Sidney Crosby's Long Year Off

Sidney Crosby's back and doing very well indeed since a concussion forced him to sit out a year of hockey. We look at how he spent his recovery time.

  • Visited Pittsburgh-area children's hospitals; drooled on the patients
  • Finding himself in the storerooms of New Mexico VFW halls with no idea how he got there
  • Looking up open-mouthed as he felt it beginning to rain; nearly drowning
  • Practiced tying his ice skates by himself so Mario Lemieux wouldn't have to do it before every game anymore
  • Wrote all of the lyrics to the newest Dave Matthews album
  • Often woke from dream that he was sweating, vomiting, and falling and was relieved to find he was sweating, vomiting, and convulsing
  • In an effort to stay in shape, ran several miles a day, usually into a wall
  • Was completely surprised to learn an entire year had passed
