Tumble Dry Wit

Sidney Crosby made his late night television debut on Thursday, the Junior Hockey star and newest Pittsburgh Penguin was a guest on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Crosby had about six minutes of late night fame, chatted about growing up in Nova Scotia and using his mother's Dryer as a target for his laser like shots.

By the end of the show Leno had brought out a dryer of his own for Crosby to take shots at, for the record he was wide once, hit the left frame twice and and hit the drum twice. It was the first appearance by an NHLer in a long time as the sport tends to get lost in the celebrity sweepstakes on American TV.

So there may have been some pressure on Crosby to perform, but if there was he showed little in the way of nerves and seemed to enjoy his time in the spotlight. A few more shows and he may go five for five in the dryer hole.
