Penguins spell Sidney Crosby's name wrong on program

Wednesday January 28th, 2015

Typos happen all the time, but there are some circumstances in which they are less forgivable than others, and for the Pittsburgh Penguins, misspelling your superstar player's name is fairly unforgivable.

On the cover of the team's Jan. 27 program for its game against the Winnipeg Jets the team has a picture of Sidney Crosby with the caption "Sindey Crosby," which, of course, is not the right way to spell Sidney Crosby's name.

The team pulled the program from stands once it found out about the error, according to Yahoo Sports, but it had already added insult to injury, as Crosby missed the game with a lower body injury that also caused him to sit out the NHL All-Star game.
