If you are holding a baby at a hockey game, here is a list of things you should do:
1. Avoid putting said baby directly in the path of an oncoming hockey puck
2. Repeat step 1
That’s it. “Keep your baby from dying.”
Here is a man doing the opposite of that as he holds a baby and catches an errant puck at an AHL game between the Norfolk Admirals and Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Well, I guess the opposite of that would be “the baby dying” and the baby doesn’t die, so he’s just … on his way to doing the opposite of that. Thank goodness this guy’s seen Untamed Heart one too many times.
The best part of the video for me is the little girl seated next to them. He’s getting a pop from the crowd for catching a puck with a baby in his arms, and this kid’s desperately clawing at him, trying to get the puck. I really wish the video had ended with him handing her the baby and clutching the puck to his chest.
