No matter how talented Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sydney Crosby is, the crybaby moniker is going to follow him around for however long he continues to lace those skates up. I’m not here to argue how deserved the nickname is, just to report on one of the greatest digs at Sid the Kid, which came from a pilot on a Jet Blue flight this morning, according to CBS Sports.
On the Pittsburgh-to-Boston flight—less than 18 hours after the Bruins took a 2-0 series lead as the Eastern Conference Final shifts to Beantown—which had several media members from both clubs aboard, the unnamed hero took to the plane’s intercom system to address a crying baby at the back of the cabin.
The man is clearly happy with how his team swept the ice with the Pens. It also goes to show that it is possible to be somewhat cordial while dissing another team, something clearly lost on the Pittsburgher who, after complaining of excruciating pain coming from his anal region following Game 1 of the series, tweeted to Boston, “I hope your city gets bombed again.”
