Hockey Player Gives Hitchhiking Bono a Ride

9 Jun

Just because you’re one of the world’s most famous rockers doesn’t mean you can’t get caught out in the middle of a freak rainstorm. That is exactly what happened to U2 frontman Bono and his assistant. The two had decided to go for a walk in West Vancouver, but were caught in the middle of an unexpected torrent.

Luckily, Edmonton Oilers hockey center Gilbert Brule and his girlfriend Kelsey Nichols happened to be driving in the area and offered Bono a ride. The singer asked to be taken to the Horseshoe Bay neighborhood and the hockey player obliged. Bono later rewarded the pair with VIP seats at a show in Edmonton.

Pays to be nice. Check out the news report of the incident.
