Sidney Crosby Buys Penguins Fans Lunch in Bahamas
Ok, this won’t be the biggest story I write this year, not even today, but Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is a good human being.
The Facebook post from an Ambridge family is starting to go viral because of Crosby and his goodheartedness.
The Fischers posted a story from their friends on vacation in the Bahamas. The party who told the story are Penguins season ticket holders and immediately recognized the guy a few tables over — Sidney Crosby. The star player was having lunch with his girlfriend and another couple.
Showing restraint and courtesy, the family decided not to make a fuss and leave Crosby alone. However, their 10-year-old daughter was undeterred by parental objections and went over to Crosby’s table to ask for a picture.
Not only did Crosby oblige, but he also came to the family’s table to talk some Penguins hockey before graciously excusing himself. When the family asked for the check, they found that Crosby had already taken care of it.
The Bahamas is probably not the hotspot Crosby wants to be in this week, but he managed to give a few hockey fans a memory they won’t forget.
Pittsburgh Hockey Now confirmed the details and received permission from the Fischer family before publishing.
The legend is always growing
Solid person, solid story, solid reporting (e.g. receiving permission).
Hockey players are my favorites athletes and Sid is my favorite hockey player.
What an example for kids!
