This is information overload for yours truly. Being a history buff (that’s what I have my degree in), having worked in several museums and being a die hard Pittsburgh sports fan, this is entirely overwhelming. It looks like I might have to make a pit stop in Canada one of these days (road trip)!
The NSSHoF now holds (for a limited time) the trifecta of trophies won by Sid last season. The trophies won and displayed include:
…the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s top scorer, the Hart Trophy for the league most valuable player and the Lester B. Pearson Award for MVP as selected by the players.
Also on display will be the Lou Marsh Award — Canada’s male athlete of the year, which Crosby won in 2007 — and the Canada Cup, won by Team Canada in 1976.
If trophies aren’t your deal, then at least check out the clothes dryer (pictured above) that Sid used to practice his shot as a tyke.
Now if only I could get someone to make an exhibit strictly about me. Can’t be hard, right? I know I have a 3rd place trophy from a backgammon tournament somewhere, as well as a medal for successfully completing Mary Lou Retton’s The President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports from like 1st Grade at St. Edward Elementary School. Those have gotta count for something.
I demand an exhibit.
