Fan steals helmet, flaunts his crown
The fans have had enough. Rising ticket prices, $10 beers, millionaire crybaby players, dangers in the stands — a revolution is brewing. And the first shot was fired Wednesday night in Chicago.
And it started with a hockey helmet and a beer.
What the video does not show is Pardy then getting beer dumped on his helmetless head, reportedly by a woman. You can see that here.
"I don't know what happened to my stick, either. It got lost in the crowd somewhere, too," Pardy told The Associated Press after the game, a 4-1 Chicago win. "Just a little insult to the injury, I guess. It was a tough night for all of us. It was tough enough to get put through the glass, but then to get a beer thrown on my head, too, it wasn't a good thing."
The victorious fan then showed off his new crown. At least Bollig had fun with it.
