I was thinking on the shift that it would be awesome if Crosby scored the goal.

Yeah, if only he played with more passion and pizazz only to wilt under pressure time and time again. That'd really be something.

Watching him play I wonder if he pulled his groin on that offside play early in the Olympics.

Not only did I laugh, I ed because I thought it was such a garbage goal by such a garbage player. Crosby's reputation has been needlessly inflated again, and when push comes to shove, he can't do anything.

No sports athlete is a hero.
lucky bounce of the linesman's skate? The refs skate nearly made him lose the puck, I wouldn't call that lucky.

How does that even make sense?

It's posts like the above that make me wonder if Crosby will EVER get credit, even if he scores 200 goals in a year and singlehandedly scores every goal leading the Penguins to the Cup. Even then you'll have people like the above finding some fault with his game.

None of it really matters does it.

How many goals. How he looked. None of it.

The ONLY thing that matters is in the end he came through when it MATTERED MOST.
