A Fan Jumped The Boards During An OHL Game And Put On A Performance For The Ages
I feel bad doing this because referees already get blamed for damn near everything that happens on the ice, but this one is on them. Obviously they can't stop a kid from scaling the glass mid-game, but they could have very easily put a stop to it before it resulted in, quite possibly, the most gloriously surreal GIF I have ever laid eyes on....
You know how many idiots that never considered this possible just had the seed of stupidity planted in their head by watching some dude turn - what should have been - his 15 seconds of fame into a rousing minute long rendition of 'Drunk Asshole On Ice'? Not sure these officials understand, but it's a copycat league. Let one belligerent moron turn a semi-professional ice surface into a stage for his "performance art", and the rest of the college aged kids that are only attending OHL games because the tickets and beer are dirt cheap will quickly follow suit. Normally I am for the zebras letting contentious situations play out, but - as always - they need to know when to step in. This kid Bambi'd onto his back affording the refs the perfect opportunity to show that they could keep everything under control and they failed miserably. Instead, what could have been a swift ending that deterred similar behavior in the future turned into a viral sensation that will undoubtedly encourage more easily influenced drunkards to use developmental ice hockey leagues to get their all-too-elusive moment on the internet.
