Be honest. Were you expecting anything less?
Sidney Crosby had 2 goals and 2 assists in his comeback game last night vs. NYI. He dominated like he hadn’t missed a single game.
I can’t pick my favorite part. The dazzling first goal? The obvious “F*%& YEAH!” after (which SportsCenter actually blurred out)? The smile? Or is it the way the Hockey Night in Canada announcers are silent for a good 30 seconds, letting us listen to the crowd while we all just soak it in? The Versus announcers in the US were quiet even longer, because there’s nothing anyone needs to say.
His brilliance overshadows the creeper mustache. It illuminates the barf-inducing nonsense that is Pierre Maguire. It makes Jeremy Roenick swoon in the post-game coverage, talking about his thighs.
I may have gotten a little teary-eyed when he skated all the way over to fist-bump Flower after his first goal. I definitely did watching his First Star post-game interview. And I probably will every time I see this for a while:
A great day indeed.Tags: Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby
