Sid’s People Respond to Criticism on Letterman Skip

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Sidney Crosby didn’t have to come up with the top 10 reasons he couldn’t accept an invitation to appear on the “Late Show with David Letterman” last week. It took only one.

“His schedule was full,” Crosby’s agent, Pat Brisson, said Monday night.

The New York Post this week reported that NHL officials were “miffed” at the missed opportunity to have Crosby — considered the face of the league — make such an appearance on the heels of his winning goal for Canada in the Olympic gold-medal game.

“I talk to the league on a regular basis, and the league couldn’t be more thrilled having Sidney Crosby do all the stuff he does,” Brisson said.

NHL spokesman Frank Brown said the league is thrilled with Crosby’s promotional efforts. ” … Sidney has been exceptional in giving his time,” Brown said.

Okay then.  That’s settled.  Sid will guest host the Late Show when Dave’s on vacation during the summer, if he isn’t doing anything else.
