Sidney Crosby has already had the chance to hang out with the Stanley Cup. There's when he won it back in 2009, for the first time; then, there was the end to his annual hockey school. Oh, and at a Tim Horton's. That's just as important; can't get much more Canadian than that.
But then, of course, he's Sidney Crosby. Cole Harbour boasts on its welcoming sign that it's his home. So there was a parade.

Probably not as big as Pittsburgh's parade, but still pretty special, with 10s of thousands of people there according to the Keeper of the Cup, Phillip Pritchard.

Crosby definitely loves his home of Cole Harbour - and his home clearly loves him right back.
