The ceremonial puck drop may not maintain the identical place within the collective consciousness as a primary pitch, however rattling they’re nonetheless necessary. Sadly for Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons, no one informed the poor dude how they labored.
The AHL’s Hersey Bears, who’re an affiliate for the Washington Capitals, invited Parsons to stroll out on the ice on Sunday evening and drop the puck. On paper it made excellent sense. Parsons is from Harrisburg, PA, he went to Penn State, this could all be hand-meets-glove. The one subject is that no one informed him how this could all work.
So, as an alternative of ready for the group captains, dropping the puck and shaking their fingers, Parsons as an alternative strolled out on his personal, shortly dropped the puck with no one round, then shrugged as if to say “what did I do improper?”
In his protection, Parsons did precisely what the job title entailed. He dropped the puck as a part of a ceremony. The remaining is on the Bears for not laying out how this all labored. It’s nonetheless hilarious. I imply, think about if somebody was requested to throw out the primary pitch and so they simply strolled out to the mound with no one round, threw the ball, and watched it roll to the fence. That’s mainly what occurred right here.
Maybe this was all an elaborate ruse. Give it some thought. What if the Bears shed their Pennsylvania allegiance to Parsons as a part of a fiendish Washington-based plot to humiliate a Cowboys’ star? It’s not outdoors the realm of chance to think about Dan Snyder made a name or two to the Capitals, as a result of lord is aware of the one method he’s declare a dub in opposition to the Cowboys nowadays is by making an attempt to make one among their gamers appear silly at an AHL sport.
It’s okay Micah, I’m positive you’re not the primary particular person in historical past to botch a puck drop. Okay, perhaps you’re the primary.
