Jersey Fouls of the Week: Hockey honors Harambe

Harambe Jersey Foul

The NHL season has started, which means arenas are officially packed with fans wearing all sorts of wonderful jersey fouls.

Overall we’ve had quite a few solid fouls to choose from as fans have done their best to kick off 2016-17 in a funny and creative fashion.

The above foul is one that was submitted many times during the World Cup. This one was from @emilybabyy on Twitter. It’s a take on Harambe, the gorilla who was tragically killed at the Cincinnati Zoo in May and has turned into an internet meme recently.

A similar foul actually popped up later in the preseason and was posted by MstrBig.
