i tossed a stuffed octopus my daughter gave me.... "one of her many animals" from the aquarium trips in phoenix last year.
the game where bertuzzi won the shootout with his patented spin backhanders.
well, i had it low, and when everyone erupted i threw it like a hand grenade and kept my hands up in celebration.
once the crowds started to head for the aisles i turned, started walking and removed the wings jersey and passed it off to the wife.
we split up and headed for the door. but...at the top of the stairs..security stopped us and accused my good friend of throwing a dead animal on the ice.
well, he had a field day with the 2 security guards and 4 cops that wanted to detain us. ( he loves conflict...especially when he was innocent)
so they claimed they had video of him throwing it...and we waited....and waited....and i asked one of the cops if i could go. sure enough...i walked outside to meet up with the wife.
5 minutes later my bud came out giggling like a school girl...he had read them the riot act and the cops got mad at the security guards on a power trip for wasting his time.
so all i can say to you is...prepare for the heat....have evasive manuevers planned....lose the jersey on the fly.
