Good Bio, great extra: Winter Classic Game 2008

"The DVD is a good story on Crosby's 2007-2008 season (with a little build-up on the Penguins, then on Crosby himself). The biography itself is good. There isn't much as far as highlights go. This is definitely more of a biography of Crosby than it is a highlight reel. The feature runs about 80 minutes.
My complaints are with the production. The DVD is shown in widescreen format, but it's not a true widescreen for those with widescreen TVs, it's like a matted picture. Crosby's voice having the echo effect did not help present it well, but it wasn't too annoying after a few times of hearing it.
The other complaint goes to marketing. The NHL Winter Classic game is included as an extra. A game that DESERVED it's own DVD, and will surely help sales of this DVD is just an extra on this DVD. It's (true) widescreen format, so it's a great picture of the game and worth the price for this extra alone.
I haven't gotten to see any of the extras which include: Captian Crosby, Crosby the Communicator, The Draft Lottery, Face of the League, Behind the Scenes - Gatorade Commercial Shoot, Personal Stories, Sid and the Kids, Sid's Super Skills, and the already mentioned 2008 Winter Classic game in it's entirity."
Not even a Penguins fan but this rocked!

""Sidney Crosby: On The Ice and Beyond" is a documentary that covers a bit of Sid's life but mainly focuses on the Pittsburgh Penguins' run to the Stanley Cup Final in 2008. It is an extremely well-shot documentary and as a filmmaker myself, I can only say that I wish I had been a part of its production! Excellent hockey footage and a seamless storyline are integrated into this film about a kid that changed a city and is really the face of the NHL. With this film, you get a behind the scenes look at what it really means to be an all-star NHL'er and I'd recommend it to any hockey fanatic out there!"
