Chances are if you clicked in to take a look at what this article is about, you are not like me. You probably do not like Sidney Crosby, nor do you have much good to say about the Pittsburgh Penguins.
This topic was presented and I thought, "This is perfect." Seriously.
I mean, after all, we are hitting the holiday season. What better way to give back to the Bleacher Report community of Sidney Crosby haters than to offer up the 10 moments that Crosby would like to forget?
Now to be clear, I am a Penguins fan through and through. I do like and respect Sid. But this time I get to show the other side of things.
Today has to be a really tough day for non-Pens fans. It is alright for you to admit that you were excited to see Sid take the ice last night.
Seeing him score on his first shot had to excite you, no? Or the fact that he looked like he did not miss a beat against the team that derailed his scoring streak last season? Maybe you are not ready to admit that you enjoyed it, I get that.
So if you did not enjoy one of his best moments on the ice, I present to you the chance to get your daily Schadenfreude in the form of reliving some of Sid's less-than-stellar moments in hockey.
While I will never hate him, or have a thousandth of the venom for him that most of you do, I can certainly admit that he is far from perfect. Some of these moments reflect that.
But maybe with this article, it can be the olive branch to the Crosby haters. Maybe you can admit that his work ethic far exceeds the vast majority of NHL players and that, yes, he is a damn fine hockey player.
So in the spirit of shamelessly giving the Crosby haters what they want (actually today, they need), I present to you the 10 worst "moments" of Sidney Crosby's career.
Consider this the Saw series for you Crosby haters. It may be a while before you get anything like this again. Happy Holidays.
