Toronto Fans Throw Waffles at Players

Kyle Scott - December 10, 2010

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."

 

Crappy local news video after the jump.

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

    The same thought crossed my mind that Pronger spoke, who really does bring waffles to a hockey game?!

    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.

    Makes sense coming from a team with a gramatically incorrect name.

    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)

    This great wisdom is obtained from indifference, loneness, vacancy and non-action, no matter how simple and plain a life we have, the bottom line is that we have to keep alive!

    Convincing professional men to spend their free hours reading a magazine is not easy – particularly in the age of the internet!

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
