It appeared to be a simple mix-up between New York Knicks big man Amar'e Stoudemire and guard Beno Udrih. But the star-crossed center's pass intended for the reserve was nowhere near any player and found a fan's drink instead.
The embarrassing moment occurred during the third quarter of New York's game against the Charlotte Bobcats (in a contest that Carmelo Anthony evidently didn't realize was happening Monday night). With Stoudemire positioned on the elbow, he fired a pass to a spot on the floor recently vacated by Udrih. In fact, there was no player — Knickerbocker or Bobcat — within ten feet of the misguided toss. However, there was one unlucky patron's beverage. The game was briefly delayed while Time Warner Cable Arena staffers cleaned up the mess. Charlotte eventually snapped New York's five-game win streak with a 108-98 victory.
Anything you can do
Moving to the NHL, perhaps Buffalo Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth was inspired by teammate Ryan Miller. The U.S. Olympic team netminder made a brilliant stick save Sunday night against the Washington Capitals. Tuesday night was Enroth's turn. The 25-year-old Swede robbed Philadelphia Flyers sniper Claude Giroux in dazzling fashion. Philly bounced back to win 4-3.
