Waffle Man will strike again

I missed the Sun article last week but it seems they got hold of the guy who tossed a waffle on the ice at the end of the 4-1 loss to the Flyers.

I like many others didn't quite get the significance of the breakfast-themed protest at the Air Canada Centre, we were left to wonder both who the tosser was and why in the world he thought throwing a waffle would be a good idea.

There were a few seconds left in another obviously lost Leafs game when the 27-year-old construction worker pulled out the soggy waffles he had stashed under his jersey and chucked them onto the ice of the Air Canada Centre on Thursday.

The Sun tracked down Jack M., aka Waffle Man and this is what he had to say:

They need to wake up and eat some breakfast. I’m just trying to help them out with a balanced diet. I love them, but somebody’s got to say something.
OK. You didn't really expect something profound from a construction worker who tosses waffles. And they weren't even Eggos but a generic brand. You would think someone who could afford $203 for a Leaf ticket could shell out for a name brand. Jack said it was easy getting the waffles into his seat, 11 rows back from the Flyers bench, but not so easy to get them onto the ice — about four of the dozen waffles ended up in the stands.
