Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby has been wearing this garment since he was a teen

Sidney Crosby is 32 years old, with his birthday being today (August 7th).

Here’s an interesting story from Fox News about Sidney.  Talk about superstition!

Is Sidney Crosby actually a “dirty” player?

Athletes are notoriously superstitious.

Crosby has revealed he’s no different — just, his superstition may be a little grosser than others.

Crosby appeared on a podcast on Wednesday and admitted he has been wearing the same jockstrap that he’s had since his days at the midget hockey level.

“Still the same one, since midget. I give [Equipment manager Dana Heinze] credit, fixing that thing is probably the hardest thing he has to do. He keeps it together.”

Crosby, who just turned 32, is still one of the best players in the sport. He’s played with the Penguins since he was 18 and is entering his 15th season.

Over the course of his career, he’s helped Pittsburgh to three Stanley Cups. He’s scored 446 goals and recorded 770 assists.
