Jamie Reidy comments on the ugly reaction of some Boston Bruin fans who posted racists comments on Twitter.
Remember the good ol’ days, when the only bad things on Twitter were celebrity penises?
Last night the NHL’s defending champion Boston Bruins suffered a heartbreaking Game Seven loss when Washington Capital’s player Joel Ward scored in sudden death. This stunning development sparked anger in disappointment in all the team’s fans.
And racist rants in others.
Amazingly, just six-weeks after Southern Mississippi University band members were suspended due to racist taunts at a college basketball game, these Boston bigots thought it wise to put their hate on the internet, where it will fester forever.
One guy is wearing the same Kelly green Irish T-shirt that I bought from the Notre Dame bookstore. Selfishly, I hope he is not a fellow alumnus.
For one million dollars, I’d never guess that a guy named “Joel Ward” is black.
Maybe these racist idiots like hockey so much because the ice is white?
