Philadelphia Daily News Cover Calls Sidney Crosby Cowardly Penguin

Apr 17, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

Wednesday's Daily News cover has a depiction of Sidney Crosby as the Cowardly Lion from Wizard of Oz. But, you know, a Penguin.

Another banger from the Wednesday edition of the Philadelphia Daily News as the People’s Paper depicts Sidney Crosby as the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz with the choice header “The Cowardly Penguin.” The subheader reads “Time to finish off sniveling Sidney.”

Not bad at all. But doesn’t the lion find some courage in the end?

Sid doesn’t look nearly as good as Scott Hartnell from his DN cover appearance on Monday with the “The Bullies Are Back!” title.

The curls clearly sell newspapers. Will weak-ass lion/penguin hybrids?
