Canadian Hockey's Olympic Hero Sidney Crosby's Beefcake Shot


Originally posted on Towleroad back in October of 2005, I figured, given the fact that Crosby scored the winning shot in tonight's epic Olympic Gold Medal hockey victory, that this could use a reprise. Enjoy.

One more shot, AFTER THE JUMP...

    "Most Canadians are not all that fond of their southern neighbors, and if the US had won, it would have just made matters worse."

    Um, where on earth did you get that from? Did you conduct some sort of national poll in Canada to support that broad statement? I don't think that statement is true in the least.

    Anyway, we were obviously thrilled to have won the gold, and there is no one more fitting to have scored the game winner than Sid. The entire country's so proud of him and his success...though we may be less vocal when the Pens happen to be playing one of our teams...especially in the playoffs ;) As a hockey-loving nation, of course it was important that we win the gold on home ice. But, if we had lost to the U.S., we would have been hard on OUR players and coaching staff, not yours. I'm from Vancouver, and I know that there is tremendous pressure that comes with playing hockey in Canada period, let alone representing Team Canada to play for Olympic gold at home. So, it makes it that much more special. I'm only 25, but don't think I'll ever experience anything like it again.

    The U.S. team (both women's and men's) did a fantastic job in making the game as difficult, dynamic and intense as possible. And we wouldn't have had it any other way. If you're going to beat a team, you want to be able to say that you beat one of the best, right?
