Sometimes, things are just too poetic to be put into words. You simply have to witness them. This is one of those times.
With time running out during the Bruins’ 8-1 thumping of the Canadiens tonight in Montreal, someone in the crowd decided enough was enough.

Why yes, that is a white towel slowly fluttering down to the ice. No mas. Poetry in motion.
Mercifully for that Canadiens fan, the game did, in fact, end just a few seconds later.
If only the fan had decided to throw the towel a period or two earlier, he or she could have beaten traffic and gotten a good seat at the bar...
