Pretty sure you need to be from Canada to qualify.

The only thing about Crosby is that another Canadian (Stamkos) is putting up equal numbers. That said, I voted for Crosby for his Olympic acheivements.

Crosby 26 goals and 25 assists - 51 points
Stamkos 24 goals and 20 assists - 44 points

Not really equal.
Especially when you consider the fact that Crosby is carrying the Pens. The next highest scoring Penguin is Letang with 5 goals and 21 assists for 26 points. No other Penguin has more than 8 goals. Stamkos on the other hand has St Louis with 37 points who is playing just as well as Stamkos.

I don't pay much attention to hockey but that looks kind of equal and they are both far above the rest of the league. It was worth noting at least.

Good thing Votto won. I hate when these awards go to guys who don't even play a real sport.

okay i'll bite.

Whats a Lou marsh?
is it like a little marsh?
is it a marsh, with smelly water and no fish, named after some lumberjack dude named Lou?
here in San Diego, we have Lous Records, and Lou and Mickeys restaurant. Does Mickey have a marsh. Can you get vinyl at this marsh?
Of course there is Lou Gerhig and his disease. Is the Marsh diseased? Maybe that's why there is no fish.
There is also Lou Ferrigno. Maybe this marsh is where the Hulk bathes ... :-)

Lou Marsh is the guy moving the Chargers to LA and buying Adrian Gonzalez, arguably leaving San Diego without a professional sports team }:-)

I guess that can make anyone crabby.
