Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

Rate this topic

99 posts in this topic

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.

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!!!

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.

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

The first challenge will be finding one. Believe it or not, I've been trying to find one for months to feed to my shark with no luck. They show up now and then, but not common.

I know all the basics of boiling, with lemon juice I've also read? Obviously wouldn't throw it near the players or during play. I'm not that guy. My other challenge is I'm sitting behind the net, one section to the right, so I would have to find a throwing spot as to not hit the catch net.

I'm also of the concept that this is a playoff tradition, but being the last game of the season that our playoff chances hinge on, I think it's acceptable. I want the boys to feel at home away from home. We always get the LGRW chants going, so listen for us! And I mean all of Red Wing fans there.

Probably won't go the Stars' jersey route, I will proudly be wearing my new WC jersey from start to finish.

There normally doesn't seem to be many fans in Dallas, so you can probably maneuver around the rink pretty easily to find a good place to throw it :)

There are for Wings' games. Lots of Red, but there are some black and green.

I'm sure if I do it most of them won't even know what just happened.

I opened this thread not knowing what I would find. What I found is that I am deeply in love with each and every one of you!

I am of the mind that you find a good throwing spot away from your seat, THROW THAT f*****, then run like hell to the concourse and get lost in the crowd. Wait a few minutes, then casually return to your seat with a beer and a pretzel. Enjoy the rest of the game!
