Sidney Crosby is a fan of the Kentucky Derby

Sidney Crosby at the 138th Kentucky Derby

Getting knocked out of the playoffs early can be a huge bummer, but if there’s an upside to it at all it’s that you’ve got free time to hit big time events. For Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, it meant heading to Louisville, Kentucky and Churchill Downs for the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby.

Our friends at NBCSN’s Twitter account spotted Sid the Kid mingling about during the day’s races looking dapper. Wonder if the Kid enjoys a good mint julep?

Crosby isn’t the only hockey guy with a thing for the ponies as NBC’s Ed Olczyk gave his thoughts on who might take today’s Run for the Roses. If only we could’ve gotten Crosby’s pick on a winner for the day’s big race to compare it to his old head coach in Pittsburgh.

    I have sent at least 2 posts to this story (over an hour ago). They are not posting anti-Crosby posts?????? Is NBC in bed with Cindy?

    You two losers post more than most…. Especially now that you don’t have the Pens to watch. Hahahahahahahahaha. You two scrotum fondling douches still haven’t gotten over the early exit yet.
