Game 2 Memories: The Crosby Taunters

(By Cheryl Nichols - Capitals News Network)

Yeah, the Crosby taunters were back, and stronger than on Saturday. The baby above was possibly the most popular fan of the night, certainly the most popular baby fan. Thanks to Cheryl Nichols of the Capitals News Network for the great work on the pic.

Though, as previously mentioned, the baby thing was all shtick, and Caps fans just carried the humor as far as the pacifiers would take them. It was always going to run out eventually, or lose its creative steam anyhow. But the hat thing has just opened a whole new avenue of shtick. For the next six or eight times dude enters that arena, there will be hat jokes awaiting.

Oh, and as for the "Crosby Sucks" t-shirts, they were being sold around the arena by some enterprising young chap. The text on the back involved a reference to Evgeni Malkin with a crude closing line that sort of goes along with the front, if you get me. I do sometimes get amazed at what people will wear in public.

In less child-unfriendly news, you know that animated spot they show on the big screen when Ovechkin scores, the whole "Russian Machine" bit? Here's a version for....well, you know who it's for. It's still kind of worth watching.

I love Ovechkin.

I love Eastern Motors' live adverts featuring Ovechkin and Redskins players.

That cartoon web ad stinks. It isn't engaging, it doesn't look professional (or even entertainingly unprofessional), and it departs from all prior themes of Easterns branding. That's the best they could do?

As much as I hate Cindy Crosby, nothing compares to my hatred for Lebron (even if he likes Ovie.)

1. Lebron
2. Crosby
3. T.O.

Ovie singing the Eastern Motors song = comedy gold. How could they have passed up this opportunity?

I love TO his Divatude is responsible for more redskins wins than losses.

When you are anointed the next great one at 14 and then someone comes along that not only is a better player but a larger than life personality you get Crosby The Whiner. Crosby has had everything handed to him and when the Great 8 not only steals but has usurped his thunder you get these childish comments from Croswhiner. This guy is your Captain Pittsburgh? What a wanker.

Crosby obviously cant do anything without the help of the officials...he's always complaining to them or looking for penalties, and he can only score on power plays, it seems.

Plus, the complaining about the hats? Are you SERIOUS?!
