"We expect the Tesla coils to be ready this evening."

For those who don't know, they just remodeled the Lightning's Stadium. The improvements included giant tesla coils to create lightning in the arena after each goal. I'm really interested to see how it works out.

It sounds cool in our heads, but my gut feeling is it's going to be some super safe lame-looking thing.

Since I don't believe in the religious concepts of heaven/hell, I don't feel bad laughing at that. In fact, I'm going to send that gif to several friends of mine who also hate the Pens/Crosby, so they can laugh at it too.

As to the subject of the thread, while I think giant bolts of lightening in the top of the arena would look cool in Photoshop, I think it's a little too dangerous to implement in real life. I mean, that's a lawsuit waiting to happen, especially if there's anything remotely near it that could ignite.

Crosby says "Gary, Please?" when the lightning hits him. Then Bettman makes a rule banning Tampa Bay from the NHL forever.

Crosby meant to pray to Zeus, god of lightning, instead prayed to Bettman, god of douchebaggery. His bad.

Jump to the :59 mark to see them in action before last night's game. It's actually bigger than I was expecting, and looks pretty cool too.

It looks pretty contained. Small, but still cool. I imagine it's not big enough to pose a threat to anyone, or even cause static in the people below, but still an awesome touch.
