Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Superstars Always Get Their Way

 

I can’t believe that Sidney Crosby managed to squeeze himself onto my hockey card. Notice how he positioned his body in an attempt to block me out completely. What’s with that, eh?

    Is that your significant other to your right or your left? :)

    Question: I can’t see your index finger. Can you clarify if if might be in “pre-pick” or perhaps “post-pick” position?

    Life’s unfair. Only Pat Sajak gets to be in Sidney Crosby’s hockey card.

    As a quasi-celebrity, I’ve learned through the years that one picks in public at great peril. It’s merely my pensive look.

    Mr. Sajak, you don’t look terrible happy. Were you forced by Mr. Crosby, perhaps as the loser of some bet, to appear in the background of his card?

    Way to go cowboy. Nothing is better than hockey for me. Let’s hope ” the kid” can keep his squash from getting squished this season.

    I’m so relieved. As a non-celebrity, I can pick at will, so long as Mrs. Tabula doesn’t see me.

    Question: How did you discover this?

    Tell Crosby not to block your shot next time!

    Some fellows just always have to have the spotlight.

    Kudos to you sir for being the bigger man and tolerating this slight. Why that cur was all but demanding you dole out a well deserved thrashing right on the spot, your restraint is impressive.

    Tab, don’t fall for this. One of the first things they teach at celebrity school is Plausible Excuses for Bad Behavior. Mel Gibson and Lindsey Lohan flunked out of PEBB, but Pat took honors. Remember how smooth he was with the Margarita incident?

    What some people will do to get their pictures taken with a celebrity!!!

    Pat, all I can say is enjoy your 15 minutes of fame.

    Pat Sajak? Who is he? Oh, now I remember he is the guy on the Crosby hockey card. Now if you could get a shot with Vanna White then we would be talking about true celebrity status. :)

    Fairness requires the establishment of a government bureaucracy to correct this injustice. Surely there can be bi-partisan support for a new law: ObamaCard.

    Look at the bright side; it could have been Ovechkin you were sitting behind and there would have been plenty more than a body block! ;)

    I hate to point this out, but the guy over Crosby’s other shoulder looks like Holmes the Colorado shooter.

    I notice that I am still clearly visible, on his left.

    OK, that’s not really me. (Goes in attic and hits self on forhead with a hockey skate)

    Which! By the way, I still have in the attic from my days playing hockey on Whitehall Creek, off the Severn.
