Winnipeg kid gets a goalie stick for making “Boo Bryzgalov” sign

1 Comment

Ilya Bryzgalov was killing Winnipeggers before the Jets-Flyers game this afternoon at the MTS Centre. No longer would the Flyers’ goalie be condemned for speaking ill of the Manitoba city.

Whoops, I guess I should clarify he was killing Winnipeggers with kindness. Not knives or anything. And nobody was actually killed.

According to the Winnipeg Free Press, Bryzgalov spied a young Jets fan with a “Boo Bryzgalov” sign and, in response, gave the kid a goalie stick.

For eight-year old Donavan Collier, it offered an important lesson – if you make a sign ripping professional athletes, you’ll get cool stuff.

“I made the sign because he said we have no parks and we have terrible winters. I think it was very nice of him to give me his stick,” Collier said.
