PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia doesn’t like Sidney Crosby and Sidney Crosby doesn’t like Philly. However, it looks like the Pittsburgh Penguins star is a big fan of Rocky Balboa.

“I was Maverick last year from Top Gun. I like the movie (Rocky) too,” Crosby said via the Penguins wesbite. “Maybe (Philadelphia fans) will soften up on me because I picked that. It was all in good fun. I like the Rocky movies. There was nothing else behind it.”

Check out the picture of Crosby, dressed as Rocky (third person from the left), posted on Instagram by Evgeni Malkin:

 

Does Crosby really like Rocky or is he trolling us? I can’t decide.
