Bruins Fan Gets An Unidentified Flying Object In His Beer
Mysterious video footage shows the object-to-beer encounter during Monday night's Bruins game at TD Garden.
During Monday nightâ€™s win over the Maple Leafs, Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward tossed somethingâ€”it looked like an ear pieceâ€”over his head. Whatever the thing was appeared to drop into a fanâ€™s beer.
The video caught fire on Tuesday, popping up all over the place. In order to set the record straightâ€”or maybe just to take advantage of the publicity caused by the unidentified flying objectâ€”the teamâ€™s in-house production company released its own video. Itâ€™s not exactly the Zapruder film, but it features footage of Ward flicking something behind him. It also includes an interview with Ward, who demonstrates why it couldnâ€™t possibly be his earpiece that landed in the fanâ€™s cup. â€śIf it was me that was the culprit,â€ť Ward says in the segment, â€śI definitely wouldâ€™ve bought him another beer.â€ť
So who was the culprit? Around the time of Wardâ€™s toss, Bruins center Tyler Seguin said he flicked a smelling salt tablet over the boards. Apparently, thatâ€™s what landed in the fanâ€™s cup. If thereâ€™s a lesson here, itâ€™s this: If you buy a beer at a Bruins game, make sure to ask for a lid. You might need it.
