Why I Love Sidney Crosby

The best hockey player and role model

Why I Love Sidney Crosby

I have loved Sidney Crosby ever since 6th Grade. I watch the games and keep up-to-date with the Pittsburgh Penguins. If you look in my bedroom, I have several shirts, souvenirs, and posters of the Pens and Crosby.

Sid and I even had the same UPMC concussion doctor, Dr. Michael Collins. During an appointment 5 years ago, he and his dad walked past us to talk to the physical therapist, but I was star-stuck to even utter a word.

Besides being the best hockey player in the world, there’s something special about Sid the Kid. His charisma attracts people of all different ages, nationalities, and backgrounds. However, I feel a short article wouldn’t do justice to honor this hockey god. So, I decided to write an article on why I love Sidney Crosby.

1. Sidney’s a spectacular role model

Sidney’s so down-to-earth and sincere. When visiting Children’s Hospital, he said, “If we can boost their spirits a little bit, then we’ve done our part. We admire their courage.”

2. He’s adorable with kids

Look at those genuine smiles. Aren’t they so cute?

3. Sid the Kid is handsome

There’s no denying that he’s gorgeous. Not only was he born to play hockey, but he was also blessed with good looks.

4. Named best hockey player in the world

Sid has won Ted Lindsay Award thrice, an Olympic gold medal twice, the Stanley Cup twice, and the 2016 Conn Smythe Award for MVP. He is also known as Captain Canada. Even Wayne Gretzky, the greatest hockey player of all time, mentioned that he was the best in the world.

5. His hockey skills are incredibly out of this world

Look at how he handles the stick and his spectacular hand-eye coordination!

You can check out the video below and see how his superb hockey skills are from a GoPro Camera!

6. He’s been playing hockey since he was a little kid

He started skating when he was 3! Just imagine when he has kids. They’ll skate first before learning how to walk.

7. His greatest characteristic: Humility

Even though he is considered the best hockey player, he doesn’t boast about it. He’s still that simple, sincere kid from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.

8. My mom got his autograph

This is a funny story. When I stayed after school in 7th Grade, my mom

was shopping and met Sidney Crosby. This was 3 weeks before my birthday, so she managed to get a personalized autograph. It is one of my most cherished possessions.

9. Everyone loves him

Almost everyone in Pittsburgh and Canada adores Sid the way I do. If you even mention his name, people’s eyes will light up with joy. As you can see from this tweet, even a teacher would stop class if he walked in.

If Hollywood ever makes a TV show about him, they should name it, “Everybody Loves Sidney."

10. Sid the Kid is philanthropic

In my opinion, this is the kindest, cutest thing he has done. In December 2016, a little girl made a poster asking Sidney’s hockey stick for Christmas. As soon as he saw it, he gave it to her. This made my heart burst with joy.

As you can see, Sidney Crosby has been my favorite hockey player for 6 years now. His legacy on the hockey and Pittsburgh communities is everlasting. Let’s cheer on the Penguins and shout, “Sid shoots, he scores!”

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
