(Bill) Cosby, who played football and ran track for his alma mater, Philadelphia’s Temple University, also had good things to say about the men’s gold-medal contest — and one person in particular.
“It was a good match. (When the U.S. side tied it up), I know Canadians must have been saying, ‘Oh, God, here we go.’ And it didn’t happen, thanks to a kid named Sidney Crosby.”
Cosby was in California on business when Sid the Kid scored the winner in a 3-2 victory over the U.S. Later that night, while watching news reports about the game, Cosby said he was saddened by the slant of the coverage.
