YouTube Tuesday 8, and Hockey News

We’re going back to the NHL for this week’s YouTube Tuesday clip. Basketball is easily my favorite sport to play (hear me out…), and have been playing it since HS. I got a bit of a late start (especially for Brooklyn), but I love it and can hold my own. I have the skills of a 3 or a 4 in the body of a 2, so I’m always trying to work on my handle, but there are many things I just don’t think I’ll ever be able to do on the court. Like dunk. Or a jump stop. You need a good amount of genetic talent to be able to dunk, so pulling off a jump stop always seemed easier to attain. Just takes practice right?

And then I saw this clip from Friday’s Canadiens v. Penguins game, where Sidney Crosby pulls off a jump stop…on ice! Through 4 defenders! I don’t know if I’m now more encouraged, or less.

Hockey fans, we have some cool news coming later this week. Stay tuned.

    sid the kid is just sick. he’s so fast on the ice; and seems to already have gained some respect, as evidenced by how much the two defenders were backing in despite it being 1v4 (!)
