Two young brothers from Regina meet Crosby

??Two lucky young brothers, while on??their family’s summer vacation in Nova Scotia,?? both got a chance encounter with Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. They were visiting??family near Halifax, when they found out about the special Crosby birthday / Stanley Cup celebration in??his hometown of Cole Harbour.??And like most of the other forty thousand people that showed up for the event, they too??were hoping for a glimpse of the NHL’s biggest superstar. But they ended up getting a whole lot more.

The Cran family purchased two of the $10 posters (the one that the money went to??charity), allowing them to enter their sons’ names in??the special??draw for a chance to meet Crosby and get a picture taken with the Cup. This was the special draw that had only 87 names selected?? ( matching Crosby’s number and the year he was born).??And as luck would have it, Liam and JJ were both among the winning 87 names selected. One of the brothers were also only one of two people from the photo shoots to get a Crosby autograph.
