Washington Capitals’ Joel Ward uses Twitter to escape locked hotel bathroom

I’m thinking Washington Capitals forward Joel Ward now shares my fear.

The Caps forward, who was recently in Dallas to take on the Stars ran into a bit of a problem during a momentary pit stop in an Omni Hotel bathroom. He couldn’t get out. So like any self-respecting athlete who was stuck in a hotel loo, he fired up his Twitter application and begged for assistance.

Of course, his cries for help not only alerted hotel staff, but also teammates who decided they’d have a little fun and document the ‘rescue’:

Now, I’m no gymnast by any stretch, but, I’m thinking Ward could have crawled through the top entry if need be (though it might have been a bit painful) though, I’d probably have asked for help first as well.
