Drum roll! The votes are in… and it was not really that close.
NHL MAN MADNESS 2016 WINNER: SIDNEY CROSBY
66% of the vote went to Sid. He wold clearly have preferred 87%, but this is a higher percentage than he got in wins over Letang, Ekblad and Price. What can I say? We Eastern Conference girls have a lot to choose from.
So, you like Sid. Hey, me too! I didn’t even vote, that’s how fair I wanted this to be. Now that I know you’re right ( smile), what does that say about you/us? We also like:
- peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Things you don’t like:
Of course, you are also fans of:
I mean athleticism, guys! From the greatest player in the game!
Oh, you are no help. If you don’t think Crosby’s the best player in the game, well, everyone’s entitled to be wrong sometimes. (jk)
But I think most people can appreciate his… bonus features.
There are gold medals and a Stanley Cup and trophies all over the place, not to mention the Penguins hot streak of late. Sid was NHL 1st Star for the month of March.
And his 600th career assist, notched this weekend.
You all know how I feel about Sid, and now you know how the majority of other people (who voted in this poll) feel too. I could go on for… the 5 1/2 years this blog has existed, in fact. But this is the .gif I have bookmarked in my browser, probably my favorite go-to Sid of all time.
If you’re a Pens fan, you’re really enjoying the games right now. And maybe a little extra in-game. Let’s hope we get to enjoy that all the way till June.
And if you’re not a Pens fan, there ‘s still plenty of off-ice Crosby to keep you, um, occupied.
So congratulations to Sidney Crosby, NHL Man Madness 2016 Winner. The competition where we all win.
PS: Super thanks to all those whose gifs are included here. Visit their sites, y’all. But only if you have nothing to do for about a week.
