Man snatches sports souvenir from young fan, kid's reaction is adorable

It’s fan etiquette 101: Don’t take a foul ball (or a hockey puck) from a kid.

During Thursday night’s hockey game at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, one guy learned that the hard way.

In the second period of the Pittsburgh Penguins versus Buffalo Sabres game, a puck ricocheted into the Sabres' bench.

Coach Dan Bylsma, who spent several seasons behind the bench in Pittsburgh, scooped up the puck and pointed to a young fan sitting a few rows behind the bench.

Bylsma tossed the puck over the glass to the little boy, who was anxiously awaiting a cool souvenir.

Then the unthinkable happened.

An adult snatched the puck before the kid could catch it!

Maybe the guy had good intentions with the puck, but come on, it was clearly intended for the kid.

The crowd at Consol Energy Center booed for quite some time as the man refused to hand the puck over to the kid.

The whole time, the young fan stayed composed and handled himself like a true gentleman.

Bylsma later made things right and flipped the kid another puck.

Then the Penguins took matters into their own hands and got the boy a Sidney Crosby sweater.

Way to go, Pens! 

Tulsa Oilers 2015

Entering their 24th consecutive season as a fixture of the local sports landscape, the Tulsa Oilers announced on Monday a new campaign to support their community partners with an unprecedented commitment to service.

For the 2015-16 hockey season, the Oilers will introduce a new community campaign called the SLIC (Supporting Local Initiatives within our Community) Program.  Each member of the Oilers’ front office staff has pledged 40 hours of community service for a total of more than 1,500 hours of collective service.  Oilers’ players will also be involved in the SLIC Program which will support the following organizations:

  • Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma
  • Tulsa Hope Academy
  • Up With Trees
  • St. Francis Children’s Hospital
  • Broken Arrow Neighbors via Childers Middle School with corporate support from Whataburger
  • Salvation Army
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Many More!

Any non-profits or charitable organizations in the Tulsa area that would like to be a part of the SLIC Program are encouraged to contact Oilers’ Vice President of Corporate Partnerships, Steve Duffy, at sduffy@tulsaoilers.com.

“We are extremely excited about our new SLIC Program and the impact it will have on our community,” stated Duffy.  “The Oilers have always been actively involved in the Tulsa community and this new campaign gives us a way to our organize our efforts and inspire the city.”

The SLIC Program shares its name with Slick, the Oilers’ brand new mascot for the 2015-16 season.  Slick, a lovable, excited, and friendly character, will entertain Oilers’ fans of all ages and energize the crowd at the BOK Center.   In addition, Slick will make numerous appearances throughout the community at SLIC Program events and serve as a representative for the Oilers at schools, sponsor appearances, and fan parties.

Slick will be officially introduced at the Oilers' annual Open House which is set for October 3rd at the BOK Center.  Although Slick is looking forward to meeting Oilers’ fans and serving the community, his first priority upon arrival in Tulsa is helping to find his good friend, and current Oilers’ mascot, Sledge.  Two weeks ago, Sledge was abducted from the Oilers’ office and hasn’t been seen since.  To help locate their beloved mascot, the Oilers have launched SeenSledge.com where fans can learn more about Sledge’s kidnapping and post pictures and notes about possible Sledge sightings around town.

The Oilers’ front office staff is asking anyone with information on Sledge’s whereabouts to visit SeenSledge.com and call 918-632-7825.  Fans are encouraged to post their comments and pictures to the Oilers’ Twitter page or Facebook page and to be on the look-out for any clues that might lead to Sledge being rescued. 

Slick hopes to be reunited with Sledge in time for the Oilers’ season opener on Friday, October 16 at 7:05 p.m. against the Wichita Thunder.  For information about single game tickets, season tickets, or group tickets, call 918-632-7825 or log on to www.tulsaoilers.com.

Soldier family reunions never get old, especially during the holiday season, and that's especially true when the soldier meets his child for the first time. 

That's exactly what happened at a recent Anaheim Ducks game.

Sgt. 1st Class Robert Vandenberg's wife Patricia and the couple's two children thought they were going to see each other thanks to a scoreboard video link.  But the family and the crowd were disappointed when there were apparent technical difficulties, KTLA reports.  

Watch what happens next.

The Vandenbergs have a 17-month-old son Robert and their newborn son Travis.  And the homecoming that surely brought many to tears was the first time the sergeant ever held Travis and the first time he has seen his wife and their other son in nearly a year.  

Vandenberg was deployed to Afghanistan in February.

Without missing a beat, Toronto Maple Leaf fans picked up "The Star Spangled Banner" right where the featured singer had left off, followed by cheers from the entire arena.

The fans went on to sing "O Canada" afterward.

The Nashville Predators beat the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, but it's safe to say the brotherly love remains strong.

Inspiring story behind adorable fist-bumping hockey fan's viral video

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

He is just the cutest little boy who has been through so much, but he is Boston Strong and looks to the Bruins for inspiration. You may have seen him in a viral video, that has well over 355,000 hits, and counting!

Eight-year-old Liam Fitzgerald is a huge hockey fan and would rather watchthe Bruins play than cartoons. On any given day, he can be found watching highlights on his iPad.

Last Halloween, he dressed up as his favorite player Adam McQuaid. McQuaid noticed, and it led to Liam sitting on the Bruins' bench during Tuesday's home-game against the Florida Panthers. 

He even got to meet Patrice Bergeron before the game started, and then something really special happened. As the players were leaving the ice at the end of warm-ups, Liam decided to stick his fist out at the players and got a fist bump back from each and every one of them.

At one point, Liam even adorably shakes his hand out of pain. He even got a pat on the head from Daniel Paille.

The video of all this happening was captured by the Bruins and has gone viral.

Liam's dad Bill was thrilled for his son and told MyFoxBoston, "What is most heart warming is resoundingly people just see him and enjoy seeing him and they enjoy the emotion, and it makes them feel good for the rest of the day."

He went on to say that it was so special to his family because Liam has been through multiple challenges in his short life. He has down syndrome and was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the age of 4.

He's now cancer free, but his family hasn't forgotten the overwhelming pain they watched their son go through. So to now be able to go back and watch over and over again an eight year old's moment of pure bliss is something irreplaceable for them.

"We just take it one day at a time. We never thought when we had Liam we'd have this kind of attention, we never thought we'd have the personality and the joy, so honestly, we're just along for the ride," Bill said.
