Video: Here’s Sidney Crosby pouring cold water on himself

Aug 8, 2014, 2:30 PM EDT

Since that looked really cold, here’s a link if you want to donate to the ALS Association (United States) or ALS Canada. For more on the “ice bucket challenge” craze, click here.

PS — Sid’s wrist looked pretty good on the bucket lift.

    Betcha this turns into the most highly commented article of the day…

    • bsaures - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:01 PM

      Well all it takes is one controversial statement to make your bet right. Here we go…… lundqvist isnt actually a great goalie he has just been the benefactor of good systems.

      • nothanksimdriving123 - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:32 PM

        We need to add a completely irrelevant political angle, to inspire some moronic name-calling and sexual confusion.
        Um, it’s all President Franklin Pierce’s fault.

      • nothanksimdriving123 - Aug 8, 2014 at 5:36 PM

        bsaures: I think you meant that Lundquist would be the beneficiary of such systems.

      You have a long way to go to beat the number of comments … well, let me put it this way. The article would have gotten many more comments if the headline had read:

      “Video: Here’s Sidney Crosby pouring cold water on himself. Ovechkin didn’t”

      • 19to77 - Aug 8, 2014 at 6:43 PM

        Bonus points for somehow relating this to Ovi’s plus-minus.

      • skusterbeck - Aug 9, 2014 at 10:42 PM

        Yeah, relate this to +/- for Ovechkin. +/-= the most important stat for people who don’t know anything about hockey and have never touched a puck in their lives.

      • hockey412 - Aug 11, 2014 at 8:35 AM

        Oooooo good point – yeah I have to admit, even though it’s August I was surprised about the lack of comments on this one. Can’t wait for this season to start.

    Hockey412 it won’t be long until that idiot Ravanator makes some stupid remark.

    • iwt5007 - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:47 PM

      HAHAHA ravanator will say something dumb and then add “Cheers!” at the end….what a smacked a$$

  3. bruins18 - Aug 8, 2014 at 2:55 PM

    That was snow and it melted and he didn’t even use all the snow…c’mon dude

    There have been multiple NHHL players doing this challenge, cant mention them?

    • bsaures - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:03 PM

      No

  5. bdywrks - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:01 PM

    No mention of the fact that it was Sid’s birthday.

  6. sjsblitz - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:01 PM

    There have been multiple NHL players doing this challenge, cant mention them?

    • alicesrightfootesq - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:19 PM

      Are any of those the most talented player since Mario Lemieux?

      • sjsblitz - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:50 PM

        Toews, as voted by…..erveryone

    • jpelle82 - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:19 PM

      vermette, bergeron, lucic, crosby, krug, peverly, seguin, kreider….just to name a few bigger names. of course they put crosby’s up here

      • chanceoffleury - Aug 8, 2014 at 4:23 PM

        Fleury accepted Sids challenge today, too. He added some variety by doing the ice dumping in a banana suit with his adorable baby daughter in frame with him.

  7. jpelle82 - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:16 PM

    google torey krug’s attempt if you want to throw stones dude…its for charity anyway.

  8. hockey412 - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:27 PM

    I have a good one…ahem….

    Maybe Giroux should have done this before he molested the cop’s behind!
    :)

  9. terrier92 - Aug 8, 2014 at 3:51 PM

    Nice gesture Sid

    • courtjester1234 - Aug 8, 2014 at 5:05 PM

      its cin as in cinthia

  10. broadstreetbeatdown - Aug 8, 2014 at 4:08 PM

    Craig Adam’s toddler used more ice than Cindy.

    • jpelle82 - Aug 8, 2014 at 4:16 PM

      who is cindy? craig’s wife?

      • broadstreetbeatdown - Aug 8, 2014 at 4:33 PM

        I didn’t know they were even dating. Thanks for clearing that up.

      • theageofquarrel - Aug 8, 2014 at 4:57 PM

        You need to look at your closeted “Captain” he is the real Cindy in all of this

      • broadstreetbeatdown - Aug 8, 2014 at 5:01 PM

        There is quarrel. The undisputed, and clearly out of the closet, expert on closeted hockey players.

      • nothanksimdriving123 - Aug 8, 2014 at 5:35 PM

        Quarrel, are you suggesting Mr Crosby is gay? Or is gender dysphoric? You do know they are different, right? Has he shared such details with you? And are you saying either is a bad thing, as opposed to a normal human variation? You do know that educated people no longer worry about such details, right?

      • theageofquarrel - Aug 8, 2014 at 6:58 PM

        So tell me this,why do other teams fans call him Cindy? Is it because he is a woman? So in turn he is a effeminate man?
        I just wanna hear the fine explanation on why he is reffered to as Cindy. This should be good.

  11. 7mantel - Aug 8, 2014 at 4:11 PM

    Great video of Craig Adams family doing the challenge !

  12. courtjester1234 - Aug 8, 2014 at 5:03 PM

    can we all agree it doesn’t change the facts that hes still a hole to the A?

  13. rushledger - Aug 8, 2014 at 5:14 PM

    It’s for a good cause so lay low on the Sid hate for once please.

  14. Hockeyfan - Aug 8, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    Best way to generate posts is to elicit the name Crosby and Philly in the same post. It already drew out the trolls from under the bridges.
    Let philly be reminded of their captain’s indiscretion that will certainly be the, and forgive me, the butt of all jokes.
    Let the Crosby doubters, haters, post while the players themselves vote him the best.
    Let the Philly posters every time there is a negative Crosby comment be reminded that there so called world class player doesn’t no how to act in public, Canadian holiday or not.

    Way to go to the Adams family and to the Pens responding to the chalkenge

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Aug 8, 2014 at 8:08 PM

      Sounds like you wanna go down on him.

  15. charastein - Aug 8, 2014 at 11:49 PM

    Crosby has a look on his mug that just asks to be punched.

  16. President Charles Logan - Aug 9, 2014 at 12:19 AM

    I bet that water was probably warm -hot , then he added the snow-slush-“ice” to it

  17. mykem07 - Aug 9, 2014 at 1:16 AM

    Don’t forget, “Bozie for Sochi” did the challenge as well.

  18. montrealknowledge - Aug 9, 2014 at 1:27 AM

    Cold water can be a shock to your body, it is suggested that individuals do not “shock their body” in a such a fashion. Just saying…

  19. holeecowman - Aug 9, 2014 at 1:54 PM

    would much rather see him do the fire challenge in the middle of a desert with nobody around to put him.
