"Paper trail" -- Juvenile?

+

From Damian at the Times: "It was 2:30 into the period when a cross-checking penalty on Tampa Bay's Evgeny Artyukhin nullified Jeff Halpern's goal that would have tied the score 3-3. All of a sudden the notes came flying out of the suite and into the stands. Fans threw them back. "GM Brian Lawton, who was in the suite with Lightning owner Oren Koules, said he was not responding to the game but to fans who threw something into the open-air suite first. Either way, there were smiles all around as Lawton and the fans laughed the whole thing off." I'm wondering about the context of this paper throwing incident... Was it really just laughed off by the fans? It still seems very unprofessional for an executive to lose it like this and throw things out the window - not inside the suite itself. Anyone at the game able to give more context or thoughts on this?

Alexander Ovechkin's goal celebration created a stir last week in the news. The Tampa Bay media, however, have overdone it covering the story instead of their woe begotten team.
