An imaginative interpretation of the history of Sidney Crosby’s famous dryer (now a popular attraction at the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame).
Milton the washing machine and W. P. (Whirlpool) the dryer are being delivered to the Crosby home in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. The pair are just getting settled in to the basement when “the kid” comes home from school. Sidney straps on a pair of Rollerblades, drags out a beat-up hockey net, and starts to practice. Every now and then a loud carrong echoes off W. P.’s shiny white enamel as the puck misses the net, prompting scolds from Sidney’s mother upstairs.
Eventually, the poor dryer needs to be replaced; it’s missing knobs and covered in dents. W. P. doesn’t want to go, and it’s up to Sidney to convince his dad that sometimes, being reminded of your mistakes is a good thing.Author: Lesley Choyce
