Get In The Fast Lane Grandma, The Bingo Game Is Ready To Roll

Sidney "Lemieux Who?" Crosby notched his hundredth point last night against the New York Islanders. And his ninety ninth. And his ninety eighth. A three point effort from Crosby makes him the second eighteen year old to hit the century, along with Dale "Remember Me?" Hawerchuck, and the youngest player ever to accomplish the feat.

That Crosby could do that at such a young age is almost scary. What's even scarier than that is that Crosby is almost excatly one year older than me. One year, and this guy is already breaking NHL records. What's the most significant thing I've accomplished in my life? Here I am, worrying about getting into university and who to take to prom, and this guy's already made more money than I'll ever see in my life.

Oh, and the title from today's post? Curtesy of Pittsburgh broadcaster Mike Lange, who probably single handedly makes Penguins games worth watching. Well, him and Crosby. Another favourite of mine, "Let's go hunt a moose on a Harley". Not taking anything away from the Hockey Night In Canada institutions of Bob Cole and Harry Neal, but this guy is a totally different kind of broadcaster.

In other news, the Leafs actually face Pittsburgh today, and while the pressure is off Crosby to get one hundred, the pressure is on Leafs captain Mats Sundin, who needs one goal to hit 30 on the season, which would give him nine straight seasons of thirty or more. Bryan McCabe is also looking for his 20th, but he's been looking for that for the past 16 games or so, so don't hold your breath on that one.

In other, other news, the Jays face the Yankees tonight. Twelve games in, neither team is looking particularly good. And on both counts, it's due to pitching. The Jays have some of the hottest bats in the AL, and the Yankees are the Yankees, but when it comes to pitching, both teams have been tried and found wanting. Roy Halladay and A.J Burnett both lost their last starts, and Mariano Riviera actually blew a save.

The starters for tonight are MLB's reigning octogenarian, Randy Johnson, and the Jays up and coming Gustavo Chacin. That gives us an age difference of what, thirty, forty years on the mound?

In other, non-news, the Raptors lost, again. The Raptors motto for next season: "The Toronto Raptors. Finding new ways to lose since 1995."
