“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”
Being a probably-incomplete but possibly mostly-factual reference guide to the living situation of one Sidney Crosby (Captain, Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL). With annotated references.
We have, of course, all heard or even told the requisite jokes about how, despite being the multimillionaire face of the NHL (etc, etc) Sidney Crosby still, for some reason, lives in Mario Lemieux’s guesthouse.
This continues to be hilarious, but my friends, we may have been misled! Please read on:
This post is really what I can only describe as *magical*.

SOME BACK STORY: Back in September I began feeling extremely ill, and was losing a lot of weight very rapidly, and soon realized I was having a bad flare up of my Crohn’s disease. I went into the ER and spent a few days in the hospital, and was released with antibiotics, because I was still in the middle of con season, and had obligations to fulfill and work to do. That was dumb, because I just made myself sicker, and was back into the ER two more times before a surgeon was like “Dude you have holes in your intestine, we have to cut you open NOW” and so I had emergency surgery in which a large portion of my intestines were removed (a surgery which I’d been avoiding since I was diagnosed with crohn’s at 16). I was in the hospital for about two weeks this time. I have that $67k bill I just posted, as well as the $26k bill I got the other day and separate bills for radiology and anesthesiology which are a few thousand each. I hate hate hate asking for donations out right like this, but while I recover, I physically can’t go into my day job or do much else, and I am seriously worried about not only my medical bills, but also my rent and student loan payments. I’ve applied for financial assistance from the hospital since I’m uninsured due to my pre-existing condition, age, and the fact that I work as a freelance artist, but have not yet learned if I’ll receive any help.
Thanks so much for waiting so patiently for these to become available! I’m still struggling right now to figure out how to get my bills taken care of, and could still really use some help while I recover.
Not in the US or Canada or Tea-shirts not your thing? There are other ways you can help!
- Buy some of my fandom tea blends from Adagio! I have done blends for a TON of fandoms, and at nearly 200 different blends, there’s a wide range to chose from. Plus, holidays are coming up, so, gifts!
- Check out my redbubble shop! More merchandise/fandoms available there, though RedBubble gets more of the money than I do through the Booster sales.
- I have a GoFundMe drive still running
- And I always have my donate button in my sidebar.
Again, thanks, doing this always makes me feel… weird and vaguely uncomfortable, but there really isn’t many other options for me right now.
Please consider buying a shirt, or help signal boost!
While financial aid ended up covering the bulk of my costs, I still have to make up for not working for 2 months, and pay off the bills for Radiology and anesthesiology :( Plus this is your last chance for a Tea-shirt! Once this ends in 6 hours, this design is gone for good! I’m already so touched by everyone who has ordered a shirt, your help means the world to me Q///w///Q
GO GO GO. I bought one like 2 weeks ago and am super excited for it.
