Sidney Crosby Wrote Kids an Excuse After They Skipped School to Play Hockey with Him - Sports Gossip
Pretty good excuse to skip school

The Pittsburgh Penguins have made an annual tradition out of surprising season ticket holders with their tickets.  The best part is they have players personally deliver them.

On Monday a few players, including Sidney Crosby made the rounds.  They didn't just handout the tickets and leave.  They hung out and played a little street hockey with the kids.

More professional sports teams should do these kinds of things with their fans.
