Check Out This ‘Sindey Crosby’ Penguins Program (Pic)

Sindey Crosby Program cover

Sidney Crosby is arguably the best hockey player in the world right now, the best hockey player of the past decade, and the best player to wear a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey since the marvelous Mario Lemieux.  So you’d think the franchise he’s spent his entire 10-year NHL career with would at least know his name by now…

Not quite.

Here’s a look at the Penguins’ official game program that was being sold at the Consol Energy Center during Tuesday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets:

‘Sindey Crosby’? Really?

This is the cover of the program for the Pens’ first game back from the All-Star Break. They had at least five days to think this one through.  It’s bad enough they put Crosby on the cover despite knowing well in advance that he wouldn’t even be playing on Tuesday*.  They could at least get his name right.

* Crosby missed the All-Star Game due to an injury, and the league requires players to sit out the first game after the All-Star break if they miss the festivities due to an injury.
