Streaker Strikes Ice, Ice Strikes Back

It had to be a Canadian:

    Calgary, Alberta — Joe Thornton assisted on all three Boston goals as the Bruins and Calgary Flames played to a 3-3 tie Thursday night.

    However, it was not Thorton’s playmaking nor the repeated acrobatic stops by Steve Shields off Calgary’s Jarome Iginla that caused the biggest stir.

    A streaker scaled the glass near the penalty box during a stoppage in play with just over five minutes to play and went onto the ice.

    Wearing only a pair of red socks, he slipped when his feet touched down and he landed hard on his back. He was apparently knocked unconscious when he banged his head on the ice and was motionless on his back beside the boards.

    After a delay of six minutes, he was removed on a stretcher to a loud ovation from the crowd of 15,346.

The music of the Fête Galante-era composers like Jean-Marie Leclair counteracted the grand style of their predecessors, just as Watteau's paintings of regular people enjoying simple pleasures in the outdoors contrasted with the heavy subject matter of the art he'd grown up with.
