Fat Florida Panthers Fan Dancing Shirtless is Terrifying (Video)

obese shirtless florida panthers fan goal celebration

The Florida Panthers are perennially in the bottom third of the league when it comes to attendance rates. Last year, for example, they averaged just 16,628 fans per game, which means they only filled 86.4% of the seats. Only seven teams did worse.

However, that doesn’t mean the Panthers don’t have die hard fans. Apparently they do. In fact, Sunday afternoon one of them was in Buffalo to watch his team take on the Sabres. The guy had great seats right down by the ice, and when the Panthers scored, he took off his shirt and waved it above his head.

Why is this notable, you ask? Was his chest painted? Did he hit some of the surrounding Buffalo fans with his shirt as he was waving it?

No. He was just a very obese man. Take a look:

Nice, huh?

Now, the person who put this video on YouTube attributes the fight that broke out on the ice to this guy—a fight which the Sabres won. But the Panthers ended up winning the game by a score of 4-3. So I’d say this guy might just be their good luck charm.

I guess only time will tell.
