#Rigged trending on Twitter as Rangers win draft lottery

While New York Rangers fans are reveling in the excitement of picking first overall for the first time since 1965, conspiracy theorists are at it in full force.

Yes folks, the hashtag #Rigged is trending on Twitter. The reason being that during the lottery, as the balls were being verified by Gary Bettman, it was dropped early and then picked up and dropped again.

No, no, no…it’s not because the guy accidentally dropped it too soon before Bettman could verify it. No, it was because the ball was weighted? Yes…that’s it.
