Almost The Perfect Canadian Crime

There’s just two missing things

(Winnipeg Free Press) Good goalies steal hockey games all the time. Cases of beer, on the other hand…

In what may be the most Canadian crime in recent memory, a man wearing “goalie pads, blocker and trapper and carrying a goalie stick” was evidently looking for post-game refreshments and broke into a Russell beer store early Monday.

“It was different,” RCMP Cpl. Brett Church said Thursday. “I’ve never seen that before. Very bizarre.”

The thief had help. An accomplice threw a rock through a glass door and went into at the vendor at about 2:40 a.m., and was followed inside by the nefarious netminder.

“He was wearing everything but a (goalie) mask,” Church said, adding the man had a tuque pulled down over his head.

Why yes, yes there is video at the link.

But, can you guess what the two problems making this not the best Canadian heist are?

Early Monday morning, the rock went through the entrance door — and the bandits made off with three cases.

“Budweiser,” Betke said.

Budweiser? Not Molson, Labatts, or Moosehead? Seriously? That’s the first problem.

The second? There’s been no apology.

Oh, and BTW

Betke (manager of the store) said she provided the RCMP with surveillance video without seeing it first. She learned it was a hockey-themed heist when she read the RCMP report published Tuesday in theRussell Banner.

“I just laughed out loud,” she said.

She apologized for laughing too loud, then apologized for chastising the crook for stealing bad beer.

    Well goalies are crazy, they have to be, Case in point one of the greatest of all time Ed Belfour. While he was with the Stars. Guy was a nut, and outplayed Roy, Hasek and played Brodeur to a standstill
