The Crosby Chronicles

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch, in his Media Circus, writes about the Toronto Globe and Mail's Shawna Richer write full time about Penguins rookie phenom Sidney Crosby this season. Interesting stuff.

A full season during which a reporter will cover nothing but Sidney Crosby? Certainly interesting, definitely intensive ... and probably more than a bit monotonous.

I had the opportunity to talk with a number of Japanese reporters who rolled through Kansas City this season who covered one player, say Ichiro or Tadahito Iguchi or — yes, I'm serious — Hideo Nomo. They implied they enjoyed the work but, really, there are only so many ways one can write about what Ichiro ate during his pregame clubhouse routine, or how he performed during batting practice, etc., etc., etc.

We'll see if that scenario becomes reality, too, for Shawna Richer.
