A Random Dude Posed As A Reporter To Sneak On The Ice At The Florida Panthers Developmental Camp, But Sadly Didn't Get What He Deserved
::breathes deep and internalizes urge to poke fun at the Panthers' proclivity to prematurely throw away talent::
Talk about a catch 22. Developmental camp is too valuable in judging the current status of legitimate prospects to have even 15 seconds of a single session wasted on some kid off the street who was desperately seeking the fickleness of social media fame. However, wouldn't putting some attention-starved bender through an intense workout with young and hungry prospective pros that were chomping at the bit to make an impression provide the ultimate in poetic justice to someone who tried to make a mockery of it?
Dale Tallon obviously did the right thing in exterminating that disease before he could go viral. Seeing as the Panthers hardly even tolerate plastic rats on the ice anymore, they certainly shouldn't accommodate human vultures. That said, had their GM and coaches not been pressed for time that was undoubtedly spent more wisely then it would have been mighty nice to see those retweets roll in as this dude was getting rag-dolled in a "be careful what you wish for..." type situation.
As someone who likes to see passing internet glory come organically, I am glad this anonymous kid didn't get what he was looking for in some empty online encouragement of his idiocy. I am, however, a bit disappointed that he didn't get sent into the concussion protocol by getting what he had coming to him in acting just as recklessly narcissistic as this streaker...
