Caps Fan Tosses Beer at Sidney Crosby

Frustrations and tempers began to boil over Thursday night following two quick goals by the Penguins Sidney Crosby, all in a span of 52 seconds. The maddening minute of hockey even caused one Caps fan to part ways with his $12 beer. 

It’s a very rare occasion when a fan tosses anything on the ice at Verizon Center. One can understand the frustration fans were feeling at this point in the game, however, tossing half-full beer cans on the ice is certainly not condoned behavior. Even if it was a Canadian Light beer.
