I was thinking about taking one to get things amped up for the boys.  However, being an away arena, I'm fairly certain I'll get arrested or at least kicked out, so I would have to throw it towards the end of the game, hopefully when they are winning.  Although, I'd really love to throw it out early and give them some spark.  What do you think? How the hell do I get it in?

The question really is why is this even a question?

 

You put it in a plastic bag and tape it to your leg.  Don't forget to boil it first.  Throw it at a time where you feel you've gotten your money's worth at the game because it's a given you'll be escorted out.


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.

Textbook right there. Love it. Boil, bag it, tape it, throw it. Don't be a dummy though and throw it interrupting the play or at a horrible time. Make sure to throw it in an area that won't screw up the ice too much (boiling will avoid this also). Good luck and get the boys motivated!!!

Also, throw it when the players are at the opposite end of the ice.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I HATE it when that happens.

Cannot emphasize that enough.  Be respectful.

when i tossed one at the joe, all i did was boil until it turns purple, and rinse it good. Then put it in a plastic bag and hockey taped it to the front of my ankle so my baggy jeans would hide it. Nobody even questioned me. It will stink though.

It depends on how serious your relationship is.   Have you met her parents? 

 

I'm one of those old fuddy-duddys who think that octi should be reserved for the playoffs, but since this is as close as Dallas will get this year, it's kind of you to give them at least a taste of the playoff experience.

 

If you're really nervous about getting caught- wear a Stars jersey (get a cheap one at a thrift store) over a Wings t-shirt.  If the jersey is white and the t-shirt red, you might need a white t-shirt over the red one to camo the red.  Then once you get inside, give the Stars jersey to an underprivileged child (one whose parents haven't raised them as a Wings fan), ditch the white t-shirt (they're cheap at thrift stores) and wander about proudly wearing the Wings colours.

 

Or spend the game in a Stars jersey and when security asks who threw the octo, just shrug and ask them to explain icing.

I LOVE this!  And being in central Texas and about 3 hours away from Dallas, I say GO FOR IT!!   ('Cause we can't...!   :crybaby: )

 

Meanwhile, among others, that's three mods on here who say, "Hell, yeah!"   But of course, it's a really sad thing that we have no control over what you do when you're  AWAY from the boards.

 

:cool:  :thumbs-up:  :sneaky:

 

I hope you have a blast while it lasts!!

Yes you should do so, every  arena should see the  famous octopus, octopus the world!

 

My recommendation would be to throw it, when you feel like you've gotten your moneys worth. Sure they might escort you out, but who cares if its just a few minutes before the end, that way you are also going to avoid the heavy traffic.

 

Thread has potential to be the best one of the year so far, hopefully they are going to show it live on TV hopefully the octopus will reach the blue-line  :-)

Do what makes you feel right. We all love seeing the 'pi smack the ice. We also know that hockey games are expensive. Plus, being in Dallas, you won't get many chances to see the wings. I support you no matter what you do.

When I see the octopus hit the ice and the majority of the arena erupt, I'll be like "I know him!!!!"..... Sorta
