Umpire gets hits by drink after ejecting player

A Toronto Blue Jays fan— apparently angry about one of the team's players getting ejected earlier in the game— tossed a drink at the offending umpire as he was walking off the field.

Before getting doused by the cup of Molson, umpire Bill Miller tossed Jays' third baseman Brett Lawrie for arguing a called third strike and tossing his batting helmet.  The scull bucket bounced off the dirt and into Miller's feet.  Lawrie was immediately ejected and could face suspension.

As Miller was exiting the field, a cup of liquid flew out of the stands and hit the ump in the right shoulder.  The fired up hoser was easily picked out of the crowd by mounties and other umps.

What's up with that, eh?  Oh, that's right—  the void of any Canadian teams left in the NHL playoffs has left Jays fans feeling a little bluer.
