Some perspective of age

Unless you were living under a rock, you know by now that the Pittsburgh Penguins have won the 2009 Stanley Cup. What a resilient team they proved to be. Not only do they come back from years of fruitlessness, they overcome bankruptcy. And this season alone, they were out of the playoff picture for most of the season. And they came back from losing the first 2 games of the series...

Anyway, congrats to them.

Here is a funny thing that occurred to me after hearing lots of news about both the upcoming draft and the Penguins young captain Sidney Crosby (the youngest captain to win a championship).

Mathieu Schneider was drafted in 1987.
Sidney Crosby was born in 1987.

The draft that year was in June (the 13th I believe; but certainly some day in June)
Sidney was born August 7. (8-7-87... #87... huh huh)

Mathieu Schneider was drafted before Sidney Crosby was even born.
