Because of the way the glass is installed, the patron sitting behind Coach Tortorella (the gray-haired, bearded man in the white T-Shirt) could literally scream into the coach’s ear. According to Rangers trainer Jim Ramsay, one patron was screaming at the team, in graphic language, about whether Dan Girardi and Marc Staal have a sexual relationship. This was within earshot of several children seated nearby. Several other fans also made repeated homophobic remarks. Moreover, Mr. Ramsay reported that he and other bench personnel were spit on by one or more “fans” as they yelled through the gaps in the glass.
Seriously, Washington. Just because your hockey team is finally good doesn’t mean you can go turning Philly South.
And look, so what if Dan Giradri and Marc Staal do have a relationship? Who are you to judge?
(Cue the outrage from Philadelphia.)
