That's Just Crazy Talk
[ *  *  *  * ]
Sidney Crosby is a Canadian hockey player who currently serves as the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins. During his time with the Penguins, Sid the Kid has won three Stanley Cups and scored 57 goals this season alone. But enough about him, let's talk about Sidney Crosby, the 17-year old high school student who apparently has almost supernatural powers of prediction. Yup, it's another eccentric Dodd character, this one based on a real ice hockey superstar. As if being the vice president's daughter wasn't weird enough. Sidney Crosby (that is, the real Sidney Crosby) was born in 1987, so back in 2005, he'd have been the right age for Dodd's portrayal of him, more or less. I'm not sure that a 17-year old would be the new darling of the NHL, but I don't know much about hockey.

Why does V1 have so many hockey players?

I'll admit to sort of liking Sidney. He's obviously the weak link in the final four, but rather than have him go out like a chump, Adam gives him a decent showing and lets him be a pivotal part of the battle with Cody. He's obviously not suited for murdering folks and he's framed as almost kind of a danger to those around him, but he's got enough positive traits that I found him overall to be a fun read. That being said, I can't help but wonder how the real Sidney would have taken this portrayal if he'd known that someone had written a glorified fanfic about him. Probably not very glowingly, I'd imagine.

One more please!
