I'm in this camp for sure. Happy for Crosby and the Gold medal, but it's sad that the entire Olympics are going to be defined in Canada by "his goal".
Does it not feel wrong that this moment of Success, was unfairly dropped in his lap?Exactly, there were so many guys that worked, and played better than him all tournament long. I would have had no problem with any of those guys scoring.
In Crosby's defense, when they were handing out the medals, Crosby appeared uncomfortable that he was singled out at the end. The medal presenter even paused and appealed for more applause.
Although this might be an unfair feather in his cap, I respect him more for looking like he wanted nothing to do with being put ahead of his teammates.
He knows that 18 other guys are the reason he even had a chance to take that shot.
For that I give him a :bt
