Hockey Bro Gets Ejected After Chugging A Beer In The Middle Of A Game
Give it up for Jake Anderson! He's seemingly done the impossible and made a college club hockey game noteworthy.
On Friday, the University of Virginia goaltender was in front of his own net and heading into the third period holding a shutout against the in-state rival club team from Virginia Commonwealth University.
With the Cavaliers having a healthy 7-0 lead, Anderson thought he could afford to spare a moment to pat himself on the back, or even have a fan hand him a beer.
Anderson proceeded to chug the beer like a champ, and this lovely video shows him in full action.
Despite how worthy of a laugh the moment was, refs proceeded to eject Anderson and hand out a five-minute major.
Clearly, they were not amused, and neither was at least one reporter for UVAhockey.com, who ripped Anderson in a postgame report. The report said,
Jake Anderson had a shutout through two periods until he was disqualified for consuming an alcoholic beverage on the ice. This selfish act drew eerie parallels to the maturity of a middle schooler desperate for attention from his crush and led to a five minute major penalty to begin the third period, which Virginia killed off successfully. Tommy Graber finished the game in net and did so admirably, only allowing one goal in the final frame.
Whatever. If sports are all about good times and great moments, then Anderson should earn legendary status on UVA's campus, for a week at least.
You won't get any criticism from me, Jake.
