As Philadelphians, we tend to get a bad wrap for being horrible fans, throwing snowballs at Santa and idealizing a morbidly obese green anteater. Our players are not much better with dog fighting, Riley Coppers choice words and now the captain of the Flyers being thrown in jail.
I mean honestly, who could put Claude Giroux in a jail...he is sweet and Canadian.
For those of you that have not heard, Claude had been drinking a little to celebrate a glorious Tuesday afternoon in Ottawa. Not really sure what he was celebrating but hey, when you are the captain of a world renowned sports team, let's be honest, you can afford to get a little sloshed on a Tuesday. While drinking Claude decided that it was a great idea to "grope a male officer." Now "grope" is a strong word for this case but when you are drunk enough to smack a cop's ass I guess you should spend a night in the drunk tank. But come on, anyone who has been to any sporting event in Philly knows that, to a member of Philly PD, nothing says good job like a firm, open palm, slap on the behind.
After being let out on Wednesday, no charges were filed against Giroux. All we have now is a great story about a Philly captain being drunk in public.
But hey, hats off to you Claude for providing us with a great story so we can make some ridiculous signs for the home opener.
