Hockey coach mimics blind man to mock referees (Video)


Chris Clark, assistant coach of the WAHL's Wenatchee Wild, was ejected from Saturday's game against the Kenai River Brown Bears for gross misconduct when he came out onto the ice pretending to be a blind man to express his opinion of the game's officiating.

With the Wild down 2-1 and under seven minutes left in the third period, the officials gave the Brown Bears seven minutes of power play time. Clark, who was already dressed in a suit and bowtie, put on a pair of sunglasses and walked out onto the ice using a hockey stick as an imitation walking stick to deliver a "sight-impaired impression" that the crowd enjoyed. Not surprisingly, the officials did not find it funny.

While this protest was a bit immature, and most definitely inappropriate, at least Clark expressed his opinion without yelling, screaming, or throwing things. There's something to be said for that.
