Bruins Refused Shots from Canucks Fan Ryan Reynolds After Argument
Like any wild pack of happy hockey bros should, the Boston Bruins partied hard after they won the 2011 Stanley Cup Championship. They took a trip down to Foxwoods Resort Casino and reportedly ran up a tab of $156,000 — even though most of the damage from that resulted from gifts people had given them. Heck, even former LBS writer Shallon Lester found her way into the headlines for partying with the Bruins post-victory.
One man who did not party with the boys from Boston was actor Ryan Reynolds, who is a known Vancouver Canucks fan. According to the Boston Herald, some of the Bruins players were out continuing to celebrate at Red Lantern a few nights ago (so what if they won almost three months ago?) when they had an interaction with Reynolds. The source claims Reynolds and the 22 players and friends got mouthy with one another in what sounded like a typical sports trash-talking scenario. For whatever reason, Reynolds decided to send 22 shots of tequila over to the Bruins’ table.
In picture-perfect screw you fashion, the Boston players and their crew passed the shots along to a table full of women who were enjoying a bachelorette party. Yes, the gesture was a nice one from Reynolds. That doesn’t make the Bruins decision is any less hilarious. If anything, Reynolds should just be thankful Shawn Thornton didn’t decide to punch him out.
