I find Bruins fans to be the worst sports fans in the world, and believe me, I have the sort of time to follow and think about such things.
They aren’t particularly passionate, relatively speaking – Boston folks are generally more concerned with the Patriots or what brand of socks that night’s Red Sox starter is wearing or what Bill Simmons said about Larry Legend – but they certainly come out of the woodwork when the Bruins are good, doing things like tossing condoms at one of our contributors, jumping over the glass and onto the ice, and littering the ice with trash and liquor bottles.
You can add mascot fights to that list.
On Tuesday night in Tampa, after Lightning mascot Thunderbug sprayed a portly Bruins fans, said portly Bruins fan attempted to tackle the mascot. Again, the mascot that sprayed him with silly string. As Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy notes: That escalated quickly.
Yes it did, Greg. It usually does with Bruins fans.
