The Crosby Wears Prada

Canadian Press is reporting* that Pittsburgh Penguins uber-brat and “last best hope for hockey in the third millennium” Sidney Crosby is taking a turn at…now get this…clothes design.

It conjures visions of a “Crosby-ality” show in the future on Bravo…

Project Cros-way… Selected from thousands of hopefuls who lined up outside Primanti’s all night for the opportunity, an all-new cast of fifteen Penguin puck bunnies will compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to model the latest line of Crosby chic. The winner will get an all-expense paid shopping tour of Target.

Tim Gunn’s “Guide to Croz”…The co-author of “A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style” joins Sidney Crosby to “make it work” in the world of hockey fashion. Whether is it finding the right accessory for those stylish Reebok skates or coordinating the helmet color with the shaft of your Koho, Tim and Sid have the answers.

Queer Eye for the Center Guy…the “Fab Five” are talented, hip…and hockey fans, we find out. Tune in to every fun-filled, style-packed episode as the guys take on the challenge of making over Penguin hockey fans in the fashions inspired by local hero, Sidney Crosby.

OK...please excuse The Peerless while he repairs to the lavatory to toss his lunch.

*Thanks to Japers’ Rink and A View from the Cheap Seats for pointing out this monstrosity about taste.

This may be the prototypical showing of typical Caps fan inadequacy that sums up all those years of frustration and coming up just a little bit short.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.
