Some hockey fans take themselves a bit too seriously. And that can lead to some boneheaded decisions.
Such was the case in Pittsburgh Thursday evening. And one particular fan broke a rule of basic common sense — don’t steal things from children.
During a stoppage in play of the Penguins-Sabres game, Buffalo head coach (and former Pittsburgh bench boss) Dan Bylsma was tossing a puck to a little kid in the crowd before it was intercepted by an elderly fan.
He looked proud of himself too. Lame.
However, a GIF of the act blew up on social media and the Penguins caught word of what had happened, immediately tweeting out a response and providing a nice gesture for the young fan.
At least someone has some class.
