As the Montreal Canadiens laid the smackdown on the Boston Bruins at the 2016 Winter Classic in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Friday, hockey fans were engaged in a little New Year's competition of their own: Who can bring the most ridiculous weapon to a extremely crowded (and likely boozy) sporting event?
A katana. A meat cleaver. Is that a tiny crossbow? Good God, people, why?
It's worth noting that all of these were seized in the Gillette Stadium employee parking lot. We can only imagine what turned up elsewhere.
