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 person instructed 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 night time 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 challenge is that no person instructed him how this could all work.
So, as an alternative of ready for the workforce captains, dropping the puck and shaking their arms, Parsons as an alternative strolled out on his personal, rapidly dropped the puck with no person round, then shrugged as if to say “what did I do mistaken?”
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 person round, threw the ball, and watched it roll to the fence. That’s principally 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 risk to think about Dan Snyder made a name or two to the Capitals, as a result of lord is aware of the one approach he’s declare a dub in opposition to the Cowboys nowadays is by attempting to make one among their gamers appear silly at an AHL sport.
It’s okay Micah, I’m certain you’re not the primary individual in historical past to botch a puck drop. Okay, perhaps you’re the primary.
