Drunk Jets fan calls 911, demanding team's return

This is one of the strangest stories you'll read on the net today. A Lundar, Manitoba hockey fan dialed 911 multiple times in an effort to convince the RCMP to bring the Jets back to Winnipeg.

From the Winnipeg Free Press:

The emergency dispatcher politely told the angry caller there was nothing she could do to help him and reminded him that he was tying up a valuable resource before hanging up. But the man continued to phone back, claiming he had a lot on his mind.

How did this end?

The final straw came when the man began insulting the 911 operator, eventually calling her a crude name. She warned him that his number had been traced and police were being sent out to arrest him.

"If you’re coming to get me, can you bring me some smokes," was his reply.

A related story has a Toronto fan calling emergency dispatch demanding Brian Burke trade for a top-line centreman. Winnipeg should really count their blessings, knowing their shot at a Stanley Cup is just as good as Toronto's this year.
