As everyone in the English-speaking world already knows, the phrase “Boston Strong” has been a rallying cry of support in the weeks since the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

In the wake of the tragedy “Boston Strong” has been an uplifting slogan that has spread across the country.
Particularly among runners…

Before Game 2 of the Boston Bruins’ playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the bombing, waved a “Boston Stong” flag on the ice.
The series shifted to hockey-crazed Toronto last night as the Maple Leafs hosted their first playoff game since 2004.
Obviously the playoff-starved Toronto fan base was incredibly excited for last night’s game, but one Leafs fan transferred that excitement into stupidity.
Of course one fan doesn’t represent an entire fan base, but SERIOUSLY?!?!
