Either way it's pretty dumb that they copy our tradition.

I was watching the game with my wife and she immediately said, "That's tacky. Can't they come up with their own traditions instead of trying to copy ours?"

The funny thing is that it's not creative AT ALL. The Octopus has a reason, 8 wins to win the Cup (when the tradition started). And even the inferior one, the Florida Panthers rubber rat, it has some meaning behind it.

This however, is dumb and pointless. Yeah, I threw a dead symbol of my team on the ice after cartin git around in my pants.

Also, that shark has to way at least 4 times as much as an average octopus. I think I would rather carry the mollusk in my pants.

dude...we've been asking the same of you guys for YEARS.

I'd rather stick a dead Shark down my pants than an octopus any day.

If we're going that route, I'd rather not stick any sea creature down my pants. tongue.gif
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I'm sure you all saw it. After Cheechoo's goal, someone tossed a dead shark onto the ice in the shark tank.
What were your reactions? It seemed a little silly/ironic to toss a dead symbol of your team on the ice...dont ya' think? I guess they dont know the history behind the octopus.

Seeing how the game turned out, i doubt we will see that one again. If anyone has any pics - post them, i'd like to see a close up of that thing.




here ya go

Did anyone actually see the person who lofted that sucker onto the ice?

Perhaps they were sporting a winged wheel and that dead shark was actually meant to symbolize the impending outcome of the game.

I dunno, maybe smile.gif

I say we take it as a compliment, All these teams are copying our tradition now and trying to make their own. I don't hold anything against them for it but, The whole Catfish thing is just dumb.

Octopi and Sharks are way more badass than catfish. BTW did any of you San Jose fans see anyone throw any catfish during the Nashville series?

The only good shark is a dead shark. laugh.gif

I think we all need to lighten up a little about every little thing. I think it's a tribute to our tradition that other teams copy it in some way. Imitation, flattery, that whole thing.

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Another thing. That looks about the size of the sharks that the octopus in that video was eating.

Yeah but that octopus looked about 10 bajillion times bigger than the octopi we throw out on the ice.

I thought he was trying out his sexy "come hither baby" face for the camera guy while they had the time out. No better time to get your off season modeling career jump started...
