Three minutes into last night’s Pens/Rangers games, Sidney Crosby took a penalty and while he was in the sin bin, a Ranger’s fan started lob some sick burns in Crosby’s direction. Among his digs, the fan said:
“Hey Crosby, Malkin would have more Cups if he had a better supporting cast.”
“Hey Crosby, you were voted third-toughest Canadian, behind Celine Dion and a close second to Avril Lavigne.”
“Hey Crosby, when Gatorade wanted a tough guy, Justin Bieber turned them down so they settled for you.”
The Penguins then went on to put seven goals up on the scoreboard in a route of New York. However, Sid was a good sport about the heckler. After the game, the fan received an autographed stick from Crosby that read “Nice Chirps. Take It Easy On Me Next Time.” So in addition to being great on the ice, Sid also appreciates a good zinger when he hears one.
