  • Why does the guy immediately in front of him duck, and the guy in front and to the right crouch? Did they know the camera was there? Did they plan this?
  • vudukungfu: Ok, explain


    In the midst of a crowd of Toronto Maple Leafs fans, a lone man wears his Tampa Bay Lightning gear with pride. Something dire has clearly happened to the dismay of the Toronto fans, and so they all go into histrionics over the failure of their favoured side. The Lightning fan quickly realises that he may be the target of their ire, and, rather than cheering on his team, removes his jersey so as to avoid any of their wrath.

    It's doubly funny when you go meta on it and realise they're all Canadians, so a) he's just being nice to opposing fans, and b) no one was going to start a fight with him to begin with.

    Did they plan to have the lightning score in OT to win the game at the exact moment the camera panned by them?

    How about a random fact: The Lightning and Maple Leafs use the exact same shade of blue in their jerseys, meaning if he takes off the jersey and rolls it up no one will be wiser.

    That's what confused me. On a phone all I saw was blue and white, but still figured it was a defense for post game shenanigans.

    Toronto crowd watching the game on the big screen at their home venue.  Lone Tampa Bay fan watches his team win the game in overtime and quickly realizes he might not want to be seen in that jersey.
  • But, it's not like Toronto got eliminated, now *that* would have been reason to remove the jersey.  Still one last game left today between those two teams.

    Well sure, but are you willing to rely on the goodwill of what appears to be a crowd of mainly 20-30 year old males (the testosterone fueled years) right after they suffered yet another letdown by the Laughs? After standing on concrete for several hours (sore feet/minor background pain), & ingesting who knows what mind altering substances. Discretion/valor/etc.

    I'd like to think nothing would happen, but it only takes one asshole to ruin your day.

    _/5 Game Sevens this weekend ... woo hoo
  • Back in...95 96 97? When the wings got swept by the avs, a new-ish kid at school, from Denver, wore his avs Jersey to school the day after.

    He didn't go home with his jersey.

    /Was not a part of it, nor do I condone that crap, just a CSB
  • My grandfather gave me a hockey jersey once. We would watch the games together, or at least talk about them over the phone the next day since e had to move to Detroit. My grandfather didn't live to see the Avalanche sweep the Red Wings, but I wore the jersey he gave me to school in his honor.

    I didn't go home with the jersey, and I don't want to talk about it.

    Subtle but effective.
    I award you both a smart and a funny.
  • He was disillusioned with the Leafs for losing, so he took off his Toronto sweater. Only it was actually a Tampa one he'd been wearing by mistake since they look nearly identical.

    Wow, that's an early version of this.
