Rob Rossi got half of Pittsburgh to stay up late Sunday night waiting for this report, which came in response to some guy tweeting that Sidney Crosby won't be ready for the start of the season:
"The occasional recurrence of concussion symptoms has not forced Penguins superstar center Sidney Crosby to 'shut down' his offseason training, general manager Ray Shero said late Sunday. 'There are going to be some symptoms with this injury, but nothing where he's had to shut it down or anything,' Shero said, noting that he was in contact with Crosby over the weekend. 'He's pushed himself, which is good.'"
Now that we've cleared absolutely nothing up, let's revisit what we've been saying for the past 6 months. None of this business - not the official team statements, not the tweets from people citing anonymous sources, and not the creeping feeling of dread you might feel when you're laying awake at night - none of it matters until we see what happens when Crosby has not only been cleared for contact but actually takes contact. Might as well enjoy the rest of the summer. There is still a long way to go before the reckoning.
