Grown Man Steals Hockey Stick From Young Canadiens Fan, Gets Shamed Into Giving It Back

Wednesday April 23rd, 2014

Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty was the hero of Game 4, scoring a go-ahead goal in the game's final minute to secure the first-round sweep for Montreal. So you can imagine how excited a young fan was when Pacioretty pointed to him and began to hand him his stick.

Unfortunately, a terrible monster of an adult swooped in and grabbed the souvenir before it reached the child. Fortunately, the power of public shame quickly took hold, as many in the crowd, and the Canadiens star himself, pointed to the young fan and the man relinquished the stick.

It's important to remember that when you are at a sporting event, there are cameras everywhere, so you can either be remembered as a jerk, like the guy above, or great, like this guy.
