Habs fan bowled over after getting too close to action

- March 22nd, 2014

I’ve never quite understood why hockey fans feel the need to stand up and bang on the glass when players come near them.

Happens in every hockey arena I’ve been to, and that’s plenty. From minor hockey, to major junior, to the NHL.

Sitting that close to the action must trigger the inner neanderthal in people.

Arrrgggh. Must. Bang. Glass.

Think players notice it and feel intimidated? Yeah, sure they do.

Anyway, this is a cautionary tale, boys and girls.

The moral of the story: Don’t bang on the damn glass like this lady at the Bell Centre. You could end up on your keister. And people will point and laugh. Or blog about it.

Of course, it could have been worse, as one Colorado Avalanche fan can attest. Yep, karma can be instant.
