08:23 AM ET 03.14 | Sidney Crosby took the occasion recently of a wide-ranging postgame interview to offer his take on such hot-button topics as the Olympics, visors, expansion and fighting. Crosby knows fighting has become a sensitive issue after Ottawa's Dave Dziurzynski was KO'ed by the Leafs' Frazer McLaren last week. At the same time, he admits there still seems to be a place for fisticuffs in the sport. ... Sometimes things happen no matter how many times you have done it. The likelihood probably increases when you have an experienced guy going up against someone who is having his first time fighting at the NHL level. "It's been around for a long time and I don't see it changing any time soon."

I did hear there was a new Pope but I didn't know it was Sid.

Please. Ignorance is no excuse. Pray for him, light a candle at Consol Energy Center and give thanks to the Church that Pope Sidnus the I has granted you continued existence.

Amen.

Good grief. You're right. Forgive me Sidnus (the LXXXVII). The first 86 never made it out of the AHL.

Wasn't there a thread yesterday about Sinus being the second coming of Mario?

Lmao. The guy was asked a question. What did you want him to say?
Jealousy is an ugly emotion.

So Sid can fight at an NHL level, huh. The only fight I saw him in he was fighting about butt level.

Dear Media,

Sidney Crosby went from sleeping on mommy's bed during scary stormy nights straight to the NHL. He is not qualified to give his opinion on pretty much anything, so please stop asking him questions. Thank you.

I wish I cared about this, but I don't, but when it comes to Sidney Crosby there are only 2 things I hear, crying and oh wait, just 1 thing..... crying...

As for Arsenal and Bayern, it was win/win for me, Arsenal is my team in the EPL, and FC Bayern, in the Bundesliga... only winning on away goals is a little scary though...
