Video: NHL's Sidney Crosby Speaks Out Against Russia's Anti-Gay Laws; Supports Gay Rights

The National Hockey League's top player (according to ESPN), Pittsburgh Penguin Sidney Crosby is speaking out in support of gay athletes and his opposition to Russia's anti-gay laws!

 

 

Crosby says: "For me growing up in Canada, my view has always been that way," Crosby said during a news conference Sunday to kick off Canada's Olympic camp. "I think that everyone has an equal right to play and I think we've been supportive of that. With the Olympics and the controversy around that I think those decisions and those laws aren't necessarily something that I agree with personally ... their laws and their views."

Good to see the support from Crosby and his potential Team Canada teammate, Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators!

Note to self: Watch more hockey.
