Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Charged With Mischief After Tossing Waffle Onto Rink
"A Toronto Maple Leafs fan was ejected from a game, and then arrested, after becoming the latest to throw waffles onto the ice to protest the team`s poor play.
Toronto police charged Joseph Robb, 31, of Oakville with mischief after he allegedly threw several waffles and an Eggo box onto the ice during the third period of Monday night`s loss to the Atlanta Thrashers, the Toronto Star reported.
Robb was banned from all three Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment arenas, officials said."
Robb didn`t toss hockey pucks or any other dangerous object, he hurled waffles for God`s sake. He shouldn`t have been charged with any crime, not even the ridiculous sounding crime of "mischief." I would hate to tell my fellow inmates that I was charged with causing mischief.
They should have left the waffles on the ice, maybe the clueless Leafs could have scored some points with a waffle.
I hope Santa gives Robb a huge HD 3D TV for Christmas so he can watch his beloved but hapless Toronto Maple Leafs.
I caution fans not to throw any objects onto the ice, confine your displeasure to heckling the players.
