I’m sorry, but I’m having a hard time understanding why this isn’t awesome.
Fox Sports – For most, it’s the same old song and dance going to the local DMV. Long lines and long waits for those who need to renew their driver’s license or take their permit test, and there’s not much that can be done about it.
On Friday, Crosby walked into a Pittsburgh-area DMV to renew his driver’s license, but he wasn’t there for long, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The forward was brought to the front of the line as he quickly finished his business and left. According to Pennsylvania DMV policy, celebrities are allowed to go to the front of the line if supervisors determine it would be beneficial to “keeping control and keeping disruptions to a minimum,” a spokeswoman for the DMV said.
Logically, it makes sense. If someone like Crosby were to walk in and wait hours like everyone else, it would likely create a frenzy of folks coming in to bombard him, which would slow down the DMV process even more.
“I think, with his popularity, he’s going to get inundated and it’s going to be totally disruptive if he’s not taken,” said Paula Miles, who was there helping her son earn his driver’s permit. “I’d rather have that than have a mob scene.”
But, not surprisingly, there were some people upset that Crosby was given the star treatment.
“I disapprove,” said Susan Campbell, who waited for 1 1/2 hours at the DMV on Friday. “He should have to sit and wait with everyone else.”
I don’t know about you, but the only thing I hate worse than waiting in line is waiting in line at the fucking DMV. If I was famous I would be dancing my way to the front of the line like I owned the DMV, and so would you.
If you’re one of the people freaking out about the greatest hockey player in the world right now cutting you in line please jump off a bridge. I mean that in the nicest possible way.
I mean your gonna try and tell me Lebron and Brady wait in line for anything?…So why should the face of hockey sit in line with you and the rest of us normal people? That would be a sad day for hockey when I look behind me and see Sidney Crosby waiting in line at the DMV.
You might hate Crosby but as hockey fans, we need this. It shows that hockey players can be famous too. So don’t fuck this up for us. He’s going to the front of the line. End of story. Get with the program people.
