Crosby scores, Francis floats

As he arrived at Hi Corbett Field, Rockies pitcher Jeff Francis — a loyal Canadian — said he’s walking “two inches off the ground.”

That was his reaction to Canada’s 3-2 overtime victory over the United States on Sunday in the Olympic gold medal hockey game.

Francis said he was watching at home with his wife, Allison, and young daughter, Cameron, when Sidney Crosby scored the game-winner. He somehow avoided an excessive celebration.

“My daughter was sleeping, so I let out the most silent yell, ever,” Francis said.
