How far are you willing to go to ensure you don’t miss a second of your team’s playoff game? One Penguins fan went further than you’re willing to after he denied medical treatment after being stabbed in the head with a screwdriver until the series opener between Pittsburgh and Columbus finished.
The Guardian reports of a stabbing at an auto detail shop just after 9 p.m. local time. Where they found a 43-year-old man bleeding after he was stabbed in the head with a screwdriver following an altercation. From there, well —
“Police said the victim refused treatment for the laceration from paramedics on the scene, stating he would drive himself to UPMC Mercy hospital at the end of the game.”
The Penguins tweeted about their victory at 10:17 p.m., meaning the man sat in an auto shop bleeding from a stab wound for over an hour before taking himself to hospital. A stab that came from a screwdriver, demonstrably a horrible thing to be stabbed with.
