Toronto broadcasters Joe Bowen and Greg Millen seem thoroughly unaware of what would possess a Maple Leafs fan to pelt the team in general (or Phil Kessel in particular) with waffles for the 3rd time in less than two weeks, however, the motivation was spelled out in this item from the Toronto Sun’s Tamara Cherry.
œThey need to wake up and eat some breakfast, Jack M., 27, who asked not to be identified, said in a Saturday interview, hours ahead of the Leafs meeting with Montreal. œI™m just trying to help them out with a balanced diet.
The œdiehard Leafs fan said he didn™t throw the waffles out of disrespect to the players, explaining, œI love them, but somebody™s got to say something.
Jack™s waffle-throwing escapade caught headlines across the city and some light, but perhaps slightly annoyed, reaction from the players.
œI don™t appreciate it, really, a guy throwing waffles at me as I am skating by, Leafs forward Colby Armstrong said after the game. œWe™re trying to make light of it in here. Throw a filet, throw a T-bone. Spend some money.
