08:30 AM ET 08.25 | Though there remains a great deal of optimism for Sidney Crosby's future, that future date remains in question. [Crosby] made significant progress over the summer and took part in his normal, rigorous offseason workout program -- including skating, shooting, stickhandling and off-ice work. When he got to 90 percent exertion in his workouts, however, he started having some headaches again. At that point, his doctors and trainers altered his workouts accordingly. He recently has visited specialists in Michigan and Georgia. ... The Penguins open training camp on Sept. 16 and play their first regular season game on Oct. 6, but Brisson said Crosby's return won't be dictated by dates or games. He will play whenever he is ready -- whatever that date may be.

Well, here we go again. I've decided not to award my post of the day for yesterday's Cooke thread. There were just too many good ones to choose from. Yes, I agree that I have no guts. But, lo and behold, we have a "when does Crosby return thread today"? When has that EVER happened? Promises to be another breeding ground for great comments. Have at guys (and DWI)..

I have never looked forward to a Penguins camp, but I count down the days until it starts so these stupid stories can end.

I sure hope Disco Dan is making plans to play the better part of the season without Sid. Cuz it ain't looking too good for the kid right now.

I'm just happy that the interns aren't using the "I'll NEVER JOIN YOU" phto of Sid that they always use

I woke up this morning and "I Got You Babe" by Sonny and Cher was playing on the radio. Fifth day in a row that's happened. Hmmmm....

Considering how well the Pens did in the second half of last season, it seems that they can wait as long as they have to for Crosby to return.

August 25, 2011  10:04 AM ET

They should move the Penguins where they belong, like Antartica so we wouldn't have to endure another post.

Ahh crap. At least this one totally clarifies the situation. And, as the writer said last week, it's good to know that no one is really paying attention to or reporting on this situation.

In seriousness though, this sounds good. From my understanding Crosby's had sinus issues, and I have them pretty good; when I workout pretty good I can get pretty good headaches just from the exertion. Maybe this has more to do with it than the concussion does? But in fairness, I've had concussions so maybe it's that I haven't properly diagnosed my lingering effects. ;)

Also with the sinuses, the last couple of hits I took in the head my doctor and I believe the problems that arose were more due to the impact to where I have all my sinus pressure. Maybe these hits jacked up his sinuses more. The question is if it's just minor headaches that arise, or if it's more heightened and he has problems with light, et al.
