Twitter user Nikki (@_Tiffie_) shared this experience at Amalie Arena. She and a friend were watching the Tampa Bay Lightning pregame warm-ups. Fans often gather along the glass to get some up-close pictures of the players and maybe catch a puck.
The rookie mistake some fans make is they’ll set their drink down along the boards. They don’t realize the glass swings back and forth upon contact. That happened to Nikki’s friend when Alex Killorn from the Tampa Bay Lightning apparently knocked over a beer. Nikki’s shoes got wet but much worse, she was now beerless. “Killer” apparently felt bad because moments later he presented Nikki with a $20 bill!
Turns out Nikki was not the one drinking, it was her friend. That’s what we’re telling her doctor, anyway. Congrats on getting your 15-minutes Nikki!
