The game, no. He did his part and scored a critical goal in the last few minutes of the 3rd period to cut it to one. But, did anyone see him blow his nose in his bare right hand right before they lined up to congratulate each other? Now this just do happens to include a hand shake and that completely grossed me out. All the television dweebs can talk about is the shock that Canadian fans are dealing with and all I can think about besides the absolutely ridiculous goal tending by Ryan Miller, is Syd Crosby blowing his snot, likely bloody, in his hand before shaking hands with the guys from a league which pays him gazzilions of dollars which hails from where, the United States of America.

I'm listening to the announcers on television feel sorry for the Canadians as if they just lost a world war, and yet they just panned to the crowd in the streets and they're partying like they just won the Gold Medal and Molson beer decided to flood the streets with free beer. Wah, wah, wah, so what the home team didn't win. That they way it is and you better get used to it. No one, no country, no anything will ever defeat the heart beat of America. We may lose a game here and there, but the USA will always come out on top in one way or the other. There is nothing more stupid than for the press to claim that Canada should walk all over the USA, and they might of well had lit a fuse to a giant powder keg with the label USA printed on the side. We'll see what happens in the next few days, but in my opinion, tonight's game summed up the true spirit of America with the score, and the true spirit of Sydney Crosby and the Canadians in the palm of his hand.
