Toronto Fans Throw Waffles at Players

Maple_leafs_waffles
Move over, batteries.  Last night, Canadians introduced us to a new projectile weapon: Waffles.

This next part is going to be drenched in thick, syrupy puns- we're warning you now.

After the Flyers toasted the Leafs of Maple, Toronto fans displayed their hunger for victory by flipping waffles onto the buttery playing surface.  Hey!  Leggo of our shtick, only us Philly fans are allowed to burn our fresh image by tossing objects at players.

Phew, what just happened?  We're back.

The Toronto Sun has the story, including a quote from Prongs and the douchebag spelling of "defense."

When the final horn sounded at the conclusion of the game between the Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre, a pile of waffles was thrown on to the ice, with one of them hitting the stick of Leafs defenceman Francois Beauchemin.

"Who brings waffles to the game?" a bemused Chris Pronger, the Flyers defenceman, said afterward.

Beauchemin brushed off the breakfast food attack.

"I didn't see what it was," Beauchemin said. "Something came to my stick. The way we're playing, it is frustrating for everybody."

  1. Wait just a minute, this has got to be a misunderstanding or something…booing your team and throwing things only happens in Philly.

  2. Curious what went through the fans minds that made them think that their best option was waffles. I guess if they were still frozen they could fling them like frisbees onto the ice.

  3. Defence is spelt in Canada with the “c”… Douchebag Americans have been spelling it wrong forever with the “s” (seriously… how the f does the s make sense)

  4. Having read this I believed it was really informative. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

  5. Definitely consider that that you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be at the internet the simplest thing to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while other people think about issues that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

  6. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would appreciate your work.
