This photo is like every prom picture I ever took. The girls were all 6 inches taller than I was. Like Sharapova here, my prom dates were always nice enough to do that slight “bend the shoulders” and “lean forward to the camera” move to make the height even out best as possible.
Sharapova is 6-foot-2. Crosby is about 5-foot-11. So Sid is doing slightly better in that regard. But, hey, she’s not even wearing heels.
Then there was this. Check out one of the responses to the tweet from one of Sharapova’s fans.
i dont know him. …

Yeah. I guess tennis is more popular in France (that user’s location) than hockey is. How many photos do you think Crosby has been in where he wasn’t the more famous of the two people be photographed?
OK. You got me. Here in the U.S.? Probably. But somewhere in Finland, a hockey fan is saying: “Who’s that tall guy with Sidney Crosby?”
Then my mind started to wander. We all know Crosby fancies himself a multisport star.
He homered at PNC Park.
He’s a roller hockey goalie.
And a touch football quarterback . But if Crosby were to play Sharapova in a set, could he win a game? How many points?
I mean, if she really didn’t hold back and play nice like she did in the photo.
