The referees at a hockey playoff game in Detroit Monday night must have had a hard time keeping focused on the ice when two Red Wings fans decided to give them an eyeful. The incident happened during a moment of downtime during Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals, as a glass shield was being fixed.
The women took the opportunity to energetically shake their breasts at the male refs, who wasted no time skating right to the scene. We're still not entirely convinced it was just to make sure that glass was put back up correctly. (Watch their unique attention-getting strategy above.)
In the video, it seems that some of their fellow fans find their spirit contagious, but the responses on Twitter have been mixed. Some have chided the two female fans for their behavior:
While others have taken up a newfound love of the game:
Crowd distractions aside, the Wings beat out the Ducks 3-2 that night, winning them another home game and tying up the series in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
Hockey fans certainly are an interesting bunch. This weekend, when the Canucks went to overtime in Game 2 against the San Jose Sharks, a dedicated Vancouver fan refused to leave the house to retrieve his carryout.
