As the NHL continues to
be the worst run sports league in the history of the world, and yes I’m including those Mayan sports that used human heads as ballsattempt to save their season, its stars have to find some way to pass the time. Many are off collecting paychecks to play overseas, but the injury-prone Sidney Crosby is just hanging out. So maybe it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that the Penguins star turned up at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center for Bieber’s show last night.
Why was he there? Was he escorting a teenage relative? Is he a fan of the Biebz? According to Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette the answer is a far sadder glimpse into the life of a sports star without a league:
- Two bomb attacks in Nigeria's central city of Jos killed at least 44 people.
- Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has resigned following an overwhelming "no" vote on new austerity measures tied to further bailout funds. The country's future in the eurozone is uncertain.
- The U.S. defeated Japan 5-2 in Vancouver in the final match of the FIFA Women's World Cup. It was the highest scoring final in the history of the tournament ⚽️
