Apparently, one fan wasn’t about to let the Chicago Blackhawks have the only streak in the Western Conference this season.
In the second intermission of the Calgary Flames’ 4-1 home victory against the San Jose Sharks, a spectator jumped over the glass wearing nothing but red briefs and did a silly walk on the Scotiabank Saddledome ice before he was escorted away:
Now, you may be wondering what kind of self-respecting streaker doesn’t go the Full Monty.
Reason No. 1: Shrinkage, we imagine.
Reason No. 2: There’s a rather sad precedent for streaking naked at Flames games, as in 2002 a fan wearing only a pair of red socks slipped on the ice, was knocked unconscious when his head hit on the surface and was removed via stretcher. The 21 year old later pleaded guilty to public drunkenness.
In a weird twist, both streakers invaded a Flames game against a Joe Thornton team. Said Thornton back in 2002, when asked if the streaker was a Bruins fan: "He had red socks on. You guys can have him.”
