Young Bruins fan looks mortified by something he found in his food (Video)

Bruins-fan-foodLike many other teams across the NHL, the Boston Bruins are thanking their fans for their patience during the lockout by offering vouchers for free food and soft drinks. Most people have seemed satisfied with the gesture from their team, but one youngster at the TD Garden on Monday afternoon looked downright appalled by something he found while eating.

The video you see above that Barstool Sports shared with us is the exact opposite of an advertisement. The last thing on earth I want right now is a hot dog at a Bruins game — whether it’s $5 or free. Is it possible that something ended up in the kid’s food after he bought it? I suppose, but I’m not willing to risk it. That was the face of a terrified human being.

Joffrey Lupul denied reservations at Toronto restaurant because of lockout

joffrey-lupulToronto Maple Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul vented his frustration over Twitter on Sunday after being denied reservations at a Toronto restaurant because of the NHL lockout.

Lupul was apparently trying to dine at Real Sports, which the National Post describes as a “popular team-created establishment next to the Air Canada Centre.” The restaurant is owned by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which runs the Leafs.

The NHL players are not allowed to associate with their teams during the lockout, and apparently that ban extends to team-owned restaurants. An understandably frustrated Lupul deleted that tweet and wrote this follow-up message:

The NHL players are considering dissolving the union, which is a strategy the NFLPA used during the NFL lockout. We’re hoping the labor issue is resolved in time to have a half-season. In the meantime, Lupul will just have to find another restaurant in Toronto where he can grab a burger and fries, or whatever it was he planned to order.

Carrie Underwood jabs husband Mike Fisher about being her purse holder

In sports circles, Mike Fisher is known as the hockey player who is married to singer Carrie Underwood. For non-sports fans, he is viewed as the guy who holds her purse as she collects awards and makes red carpet appearances. Underwood decided to humorously remind him about that point over Twitter on Saturday.

Underwood wasn’t going to take that sort of disrespect without a response. He played along quite well:

NHL players wearing ‘Puck Gary’ hats to bash Gary Bettman (Picture)

This just in: NHL players are generally unhappy with commissioner Gary Bettman. As with any labor dispute, there is ongoing animosity between the NHL and the NHL Players Association. As you can see from the photo above that TVA Sports passed along, some players in Montreal have decided to go elementary school with the whole thing and make hats bashing the perceived bad guy.

For those of you who can’t make it out, that says “Puck Gary” in fancy lettering above “2012-2013 NHL Lockout.” According to Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette, Canadiens star Erik Cole says the hats could soon be available to the public with all proceeds benefitting charity. If grown men are going to act like children, they might as well do it for a good cause.

We all want hockey to return, but I think most of us can agree that hats that say “Puck Gary” do absolutely nothing in terms of working toward a resolution. From what we hear, most fans would probably rather spend their money on sex toys while the lockout continues anyway.

Hockey fans may be turning to sex toys for lockout entertainment

NHL players have been locked out by the league’s owners since mid-September, leading to the cancellation of several hundred games. Fans are understandably looking for ways to pass the time — especially in Canada, where hockey is the country’s No. 1 sport.

A few sex shops in Edmonton have experienced a growth in sales, leading them to believe the lockout has contributed to the boost.

The Edmonton Sun spoke to a sex shop owner at a convention on Saturday who believes the lockout has helped sales.

“We’d be gearing up for (NHL hockey) now but there’s nothing so I guess we need to find some better ways to spend our time!” a lingerie shop owner told the Sun.

“When Oilers fans, mostly guys, have to break their routine of seeing every game, they have more time,” said the owner. “And there’s nothing better than spending it with your spouse or girlfriend.”

The shop owner says business at his Edmonton location has been up 15% since October.

Another Edmonton shop owner experienced a growth in business, but he attributed it to cold weather until he was reminded about the lockout, which he agreed could be a factor.

If there is one benefit to the NHL lockout, this might be it. And even once the season does begin, women still might be pleased by their husbands and boyfriends in the bedroom. Remember this story?
