Sidney Crosby Sadly Won't Be at the All-Star Game This Weekend

Sidney Crosby will miss the NHL All-Star game while he recovers from a concussion. His absence isn’t the controversy it might have become, but it is a shame the sport’s most marketable star won’t be in attendance.

In addition to being precociously talented, Crosby is extremely likable (even if it’s because he’s basically a giant kid). Of course, Crosby should take care of his body first, etc. etc., but his absence from the proceedings in Raleigh, N.C. will be noticed. It’s too bad he couldn’t show up, shake some hands, make an appearance or two, and take in the scene. A Crosby in street clothes is much better than a Crosby home in Pittsburgh.

It’s not like entertainment including Clay Aiken, 3 Doors Down, and the Canadian Tenors will get people excited.
