Kid gets autograph, can't contain emotions when asked about meeting Penguins star @NHLdotcom

You never really know how someone, young or old, would react to meeting Sidney Crosby. This kid's response can be described as adorably overwhelmed.

When a reporter from WTAE in Pittsburgh went to capture the scene as the Pittsburgh Penguins returned home with the Stanley Cup Monday, she found one young fan who got Crosby to autograph his shirt.

He should be so happy, so why the tears?

Tweet from @WTAE: "I got my shirt signed by Sidney Crosby... It's the best day of my life!" It's okay, buddy! We'd be just as excited. #BecauseItsTheCup
