Sidney Crosby Cleared For Contact - Resume Touching Sidney Crosby!

Sidney Crosby is no longer untouchable! That’s right, the NHL’s most fragile skull star has been cleared for contact. Having not played since January 5th, it now seems that we might actually see Crosby again in 2011. Crosby is still a couple weeks from playing in games, but this contact thing is a pretty big step in the right direction. He certainly sounds excited.

“It’s a big step,” Crosby said. “I’ve got to get hit at some point during practice, but we’re playing so much that it’s tough to get hit too.”

Won’t someone please hit Sid? During practice. In the locker room. Walking down the hall of the hotel. It doesn’t matter. Somebody check Crosby! The Penguins play the Washington Capitals tonight. So close!

Because you want to see it first!
