Found August 12, 2013 on PensInitiative:
We’ve got an update on the story that has captivated the hockey world since the Pittsburgh newspaper that rhymes with “Must Forget” first broke it. It seems as though PG reporter Amy Schaarsmith isn’t the pariah she first appeared to be. She’s just a sensationalist. The REAL hack behind the non-news that Sidney Crosby didn’t wait in a DMV line for his license renewal is the henpecked editor who assigned the story in the first place. Mark Madden (washed my hands after typing that) tweeted that an editor assigned Ms Schaarsmith to muckrake on Crosby after said editor’s wife, a certified member of the Golden Vagina Club, became butt hurt that Sid got a bigger cookie than she did. I would name names and out the editor in a heartbeat but it seems he has crawled up Ms. Schaarsmith’s skirt where he plans to cower until his wife performs the marital duty she promised or he is no longer in danger of being hit by the excrement hitting the fan.

Penguins CEO Defends Sidney Crosby After Superstar Was Recently Able to Cut Line at Local DMV

There’s a good amount of the general public that would say the DMV is hell on earth.

DMV line: Crosby is too good for it

For most, it's the same old song and dance going to the local DMV.

Faith No More's Jim Martin in a Penguins Sweater in the 'Easy' Video

I gotta thanks Jason for the reminder on this one. Jim Martin is one of my favorite guitarists. As a Faith No More fan across all of their albums, from the Chuck Mosley-sung early works to the Mike Patton-led albums from the late 80s on, I still find Martin's contributions to be critical to the sound of the group. Despite only having a limited number of notable musical endeavors...
