I loved seeing Crosby lose it in game 3, but the a lot of the aftermath was people wanting something to feel good about, and it got carried away.

All week there have been a lot of "I dont normally watch hockey, but..." calls on WIP.
Is that a bad thing? I like hockey a lot and discussing it with people when they are at least somewhat knowledgable about is nice. So the more people the merrier. Is it really a bandwagon if they never followed hockey before but root for all the other Philly sports? Maybe they like it so much they actually follow it more and more. I never understood the elitist attitude some people have when talking about sports like they are a better fan then others because they followed it longer or are more up to speed about the game.
