Honest to God(s), Sidney Crosby is one of the best human beings on the planet. Hell, I’d say in history.
This Monday is Veterans’ Day so the Pittsburgh Penguins honored a group of veterans by inviting them to the team’s practice on Friday. Following practice, the group got a locker room tour, and personalized team jerseys. Among that group was Madeline Malizio, a 28-year-old single mother of a 3-year old boy named Maverick and a U.S. Army veteran. Malizio is pursuing legal studies at CCAC. She has been juggling all of these tasks and jobs without a car, relying on buses and Ubers to get from point A to point B.
Sidney Crosby, captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins, heard Madeline’s story and wanted to help her.
After the meeting in the locker room, Crosby took Malizio and her son, Maverick, to the garage where a new 2019 Honda Passport was waiting for them. The video is heartwarming.
The car has an interesting story. The car was a prize after winning MVP at the All-Star Game back in January. Knowing what a big heart Crosby has, he wanted to help someone in need.
Little 3-year-old Maverick was very excited about his new car, quoted saying:
“Hello everybody! I like our brand-new car!”
It’s one of those heartwarming stories that you need to pick you up when the day has been a drag. Add Sidney Crosby onto my list of People I’d Follow To War (JK I think he founded that list).
