Video: Bruins fan takes silly-stringing poorly


Here’s an entertaining video from the “Not totally sure if this is a hoax or a funny accident” department: a Boston Bruins fan takes a silly-stringing from the Tampa Bay Lightning’s mascot rather poorly:

Gotta love Thunderbug trolling the fan as he’s getting thrown out, although it feels a bit like someone smack-talking a rival only once it’s obvious that officials will break up a potential fight.

Staged or real, it’s good for a laugh since the mascot seems OK (no word on if he went to “The Quiet Room” for a bit, though).

Final thought: did anyone else think of Green Man fighting the Philly Phanatic from an episode of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” when watching that clip? Probably not …
