Sidney Crosby at Kentucky Derby & LA Kings

Yes, this is what qualifies as a post during the offseason.

Sidney Crosby was at the Kentucky Derby this weekend. NBCSN on Twitter had a pic:

He looks like a real dick in that photo.

Crosby also appeared on NBC… as the wrong person.

Via Puck Daddy:

Los Angeles Kings rookie forward Jordan Nolan had an eventful first period in Game 4 vs. the St. Louis Blues — scoring his first Stanley Cup playoff goal and getting into a fight with Chris Stewart.

Thus, he earned his moment in the spotlight on the NBC intermission show … only he had to share it with a certain Pittsburgh Penguins captain.

Cue the N(othing) B(ut) C(rosby) jokes, everyone saying NBC is summarily obsessed with Sidney Crosby, even when he's not playing.

In fairness to the Peacock, Crosby and Nolan do resemble each other in the sense that they're both men.

That mention of the LA Kings gives us a reason to link to the Royal Half, which we're quite happy about. We're pretty much behind the Kings 100% right now.

Jonathan Quick is unreal.

Go Kings.
