I recently saw a commercial where hamsters were driving a car and rapping and dancing to the Black Sheep song "you can get with this."

Yeah. that was awesome.


That's my car, yo.

Personally, I think he should test its flexibility by wrapping it around his neck.

I am so sick of The Marketing of Sidney Crosby that I could puke pucks.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Crosby may be a ******, but he's only a ****** because he plays for Pittsburgh. He's good, real good. I'll take him on my team any day. Fake or not fake, its a cool video. Just because Datsyuk isn't Reebok's poster boy doesn't mean you gotta hate on every Crosby video that comes out.

You pointed out why we all hate him in the 5th word of your post. Please don't mention Datsyuk and that piece of s*** in the same sentence.

Yeah and the idea of spending $200+ on a stick with holes in it just didnt seem like a good idea....

My son has had both the original "O" stick (Datsyuk's his favourite) and the 8.0.8. He hasn't had issues with either.

What I don't understand about Reebok is how their marketing team thinks putting Crosby's face on everything in an area like Detroit is going to sell more gear. I was at target the other day, and they were selling Reebok skates with Cindy's mug on the box. Wouldn't they be better served putting Zetterberg on it for the Detroit market?


Datsyuk's, possibly. Zetterberg uses Easton gear.

Can you imagine Datsyuk's mug pictured on anything? Sorry I love Pav but seeing his goofy looking head on anything in stores would be hilarious, and probably scare children.

Calm down. Its a cool commercial the only reason people aren't talking about the cool idea of it, real or not, is because Crosby is in it. You hate Crosby because he's a tool and he plays for the penguins, we get it. I don't like him either, but to call him a piece of s*** is ridiculous. He is just playing his game, and if reebok wants to pay him millions of dollars to shoot a puck around and then digitally make the net move to sell their products has nothing to do with you. The hatred and jealousy for Crosby around here is EMBARRASSING to yourselves and to the Red Wings fans, who we are representing on this forum.

Not possible. The puck would have to be moving MUCH faster than any human is capable of shooting it to actually move the net...just to answer the physics question.


Did someone say physics!?

- A hockey puck weighs 6 oz = 0.17 kg
- A hockey goal weighs 125 pounds = 56.69 kg (http://www.arizonasp...-48/sku/238opw/)

A little background on what I'm about to do for those who are interested: In order for the net to move, a shot (force) hitting the net's center of mass would have to overcome the initial static friction (which we can assume there is none due to the ice's slipperiness). Essentially all there is then is to say that a horizontal force must exceed the downward force due to the mass of the net and gravity, in order for the net to move at all.

Force = mass*acceleration (in this case acceleration is gravity)

Fnet = (56.69kg)*(9.81m/s2) = 556.13 Newtons

Thus, the force of the puck needs to exceed 556.13 Newtons to be able to move the net.

The hardest shot recorded is 105.4 mph = 47.12 m/s

The kinetic energy of a shot with this speed is KE = (1/2)*m*v2 = (1/2)*(0.17kg)*(47.12m/s)2 = 188.72 Newtons*m. This amount is only equal to the Work, however. In order to equate it to the Force applied, you must divide this number by the distance, which can be said from the top of the circle, is about 35 feet = 10.67 m. So (188.72 N*m)/(10.67 m) = 17.69 Newtons, roughly 3% of the necessary energy required to cause the net to move.

Working backwards using the necessary force to move the net, the necessary Kinetic Energy is KE = (556.13 N)*(10.67 m) = 5933.9 Nm. Put that into the Kinetic energy equation and solve for velocity: v2 = (5933.9 Nm)/(1/2)/(0.17 kg) = 69810.67 m2/s2. Take the square root to get velocity: v = 264.2 m/s, which is 590.99 miles per hour. To get an idea of how fast that is, the speed of sound is 340.29 m/s, which is 768 miles per hour.


But of course it's fake. You can tell by how the net moves before the puck even hits the net on the last two shots. :hehe:


Crosby may be a ******, but he's only a ****** because he plays for Pittsburgh. He's good, real good. I'll take him on my team any day. Fake or not fake, its a cool video. Just because Datsyuk isn't Reebok's poster boy doesn't mean you gotta hate on every Crosby video that comes out.


Douchiness and the Pittsburgh Penguins are completely uncorrelated.

Douchiness and Sidney Crosby being a whiny ***** is completely correlated.

Someone is mad that Crosby has achieved more in his young career than Datsyuk will ever achieve. Never compare the two players, Datsyuk is amazing, but Crosby is a generational talent.

He got off to a good start at least, hard to say how much that team will change in 5 or so years.

He's had more international success and numbers/awards.

Good to know that Russia isn't a powerhouse after 50 years. I must have missed that memo.

Maybe not this past Olympics, but I'm talking about past WJC's, WC's etc.

I hopefully don't need to remind you of Crosby's success in either of those tournaments do I? I really wasn't refering to just this past Olympics where Datsyuk was literally the only Russian out there that had a clue what was happening, I'm just referring to individual statistics and achievements.
