What some people may call “cute” or “dedicated,” I’ll elect for the choice word of “creepy.” That’s about the only thing I can think of to describe this. Check out this Calgary Flames fan doing his Mikka Kiprusoff routine mimicking the goaltender’s every move. I mean you have to see this kid:

Wearing a jersey’s cool, staking out after a game for an autograph works for me, but getting decked out in full goaltender’s gear just to watch a game? That’s taking it a wee-bit far. Though I know the entire population of the Black Hole disagrees (not to mention a Packers fan, too).
