It appears not even professionals – New York Jets center Nick Mangold – can remain calm when cheering on their favorite team.
Who says you have to sit in the blueseats to actually harass fans of the opposition? Or, for that matter, harass the actual opposition.
New York Jets center Nick Mangold isn’t one who needs the environment of the blueseats to have that happen.
For the second time this season, Mangold attended a New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden. And for the second straight occasion, he got a little wild. In fact, possibly a little too wild.
Mangold’s antics were so out-of-control that Madison Square Garden security actually had to approach him with a warning.
Mangold, 32, was specifically going at Penguins assistant coach Rick Tocchet and star center Sidney Crosby, pointing at them, a source said, and was seen leaning over the railing to talk trash, according to Zack Braziller of the New York Post.
He displayed the same kind of antics during his last visit to MSG, on Jan. 5.
Not only was Mangold spotted at MSG on Tuesday night, but he, along with teammates Eric Decker and Bryce Petty, and free-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, were spotted on the train en route to Game 3.
Mangold’s antics didn’t help the Blueshirts. They fell in defeat to the Pittsburgh Penguins by a final of 3-1.
