One of Lancaster's personal heroes as an adult was Jesus Christ (in addition to Lincoln, Jefferson and Galileo).But Lancaster was not active in any denomination or congregation as an adult.The Lancasters were stalwarts in this congregation.Burt sang in the choir of his family's church throughout much of his childhood, until the age of fifteen when puberty changed his voice.Crosby was under a different microscope as the first Canadian star of the new century, given the onerous task of taking Gretzky's baton and that of replacing Mario Lemieux to rescue the ailing Pittsburgh market. A season and a half later, still shy of his 20th birthday, Crosby has survived his critics, from Don Cherry to his own teammates, played through the sudden retirement of Lemieux, has been the youngest player ever to accumulate 100 points and now the youngest to lead its scoring parade.
"Wow it's three," Sidney puts his phone back in his pocket. There have been two books written about him already, but many chapters to come. Sun Media's Lance Hornby spoke to Crosby this week in Pittsburgh. A year and a half after your much-heralded arrival, being called a saviour, etc., how would you assess your impact on the game? I think last year I adjusted probably faster than even I would've expected, getting comfortable early. Maybe a bit, just from becoming familiar with everything. This way I can focus on him and get to know him like I planned. I feel like I told him my whole life story and I know his whole life story and there is still more to talk about. I should've probably said yes, but I feel bad doing fake things. Despite that it's about him, I like this feeling. I'm starting to realize that I'm having a horrible time trying to figure him out. I laugh, "Sorry about that." It's actually Christina's fault, she had to pee and the line took forever. He led the way and I feel like he chose the place knowing where I want to go.
