OneÂ Pittsburgh Penguins fan has learned there really is no need to cry over spilled beer.
Mike Rupp, a forward for the Penguins, hit the rink’s boards during warmups at a recent game, accidentally knocking over a fan’s beer on the other side. But rather than ignoring the trouble he caused, the NHL player apologized to the fan with a puck and some cash.
“Mike felt terrible about it, so he asked the trainer to grab $10 out of Ruppâ€™s wallet,” Ruppâ€™s agent Allan Walsh told the Toronto Sun.
“He then wrote an apology on a puck, signed it and taped the $10 bill around it. He went over to the glass, got the guyâ€™s attention and tossed the puck over to him.”
The Toronto Sun reported that the fan smiled and gave Rupp a thumbs up after reading the puck’s note.
