This is why I love Hockey

Hockey players are on the opposite end of the salary spectrum of Professional Sports.

I think this causes them to be a little more connected to the fans, and that shows in this story -

Pens' Rupp Gives Fan $10, Signed Puck For Spilling His Beer

PITTSBURGH -- A Pittsburgh Penguins fan got quite a surprise from Mike Rupp before a recent game at Consol Energy Center.

During warmups, Rupp crashed into the boards, causing John Kraynak to spill his beer.

Rupp, knowing arena beer isn’t cheap, had a trainer go to the locker room and grab $10 from his wallet and a hockey puck.

Kraynak told Channel 11 News that Rupp wrote an apology on the puck, signed it, taped the money to the back and tossed it to him.


  1. No doubt, watching the Indy Ice play has a completely different feel from watching the Pacers.

  2. Hug the Bear...Hug the Bear....Hug the Bear
