Fan Uses Laser Pointer To Distract Tuukka Rask, Fails, Gets Ejected (GIF)
It goes without saying that using a laser pointer to blind an opposing athlete is a terrible thing to do as a fan. Like…the worst. Not only is it dangerous, but it’s one of those things like torturing an animal that would just make someone go, “WTF?” Last night in the Bruins-Habs game, one such sociopath used a laser pointer to try to blind Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask.
Of course, when you use a laser pointer in a crowded arena, everyone watching the goalie can see that some jerk is using a laser pointer, and I doubt that those sitting next to the perpetrator would sit by quietly. As such, the guy with the laser pointer was quickly found and ejected from the building.
Here’s a GIF of the goings-on:
Tuukka Rask, despite not being phased by the laser pointer, still had a rough go of it, and ended up giving up five goals before getting pulled in the 3rd period.
Likely, the offender will be banned for life, based on a similar incident at Ford Field during a Lions game a few weeks ago.
