ESPN is reporting that the Hawks are bottling and selling melted ice from their Final series. I've heard of selling the football turf or basketball hardwood, but who is dumb enough to buy water that may (or may not) have been frozen into a rink once?

I could see many folks buying a jar for their man cave. How much are they going for?

They will probably make millions off of all the bandwagon fans that are too stupid to realize that this is not something a real team does.

LOL

 

 

Pretty much, though.

What fans don't realize is it's all just leftover ice from the margarita party Patrick Kane threw right after the parade.

Apparently you must follow the Hawks on twitter to get updates on availability and pricing.

I often think how gross that ice has to be with all that saliva frozen into it.

In all fairness, how many of the Hawks fans realize that "melted ice" is water?

 

Ok.  I'll admit it.  If you were able to certify that you had a hermetically sealed jar of water that had been ice from the Joe from 3/26/97, I'd buy it as a souvenir.

 

It's corny and off the beaten path, but it's different, and I'll give them points for that.

So I'm the only one that thinks this is actually kind of cool?

Cool, but not frozen.

 

:P

 

After all the talk of saliva and stuff, I don't think that it as quite as cool as I did when I read the OP, but it's all good.  We buy game-used everything else, why not ice?

I'm right there with you on the Fight Night at the Joe ice; the only question is would we get Floppa's blood or The Turtle's blood?

And it's been done by (SURPRISE!) the Penguins and the Flyers before I believe.

 

I signed up for email alerts on the status of "ice" sales; I couldn't help myself.  I just want to see how much they're charging for it and, if I can, see how sales are going.  Supposedly it's a "wait list."  Seriously?  


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.

Could be a way to drive sales up

I want to have a party and make a drinking game with it.

On a side note. It could be Nashville pee.

I'm pretty sure proceeds go to charity so I'm ok with this.
