But also on the other side of that, you go into those thinking you might win something cool only to have a stupid mascot cheat...I would of been pissed off to. Wouldn't tackled the mascot but would have let him know I was pissed.
I have to ask too...do some of you really think this guy should have his life ruined or go to jail for something like this?
No. I wouldn't advocate anything stronger than being banned from the arena.
As for being pissed about it, I think that's missing the point. These events are entertainment between periods, getting people shuffling around on the ice to sit on inflatable chairs. The point is for it to be silly and entertaining to the people watching, not to stage a fierce competition. That's what the actual hockey game is for.
So it's hard for me to call it cheating when the whole thing is so half-assed and random anyway, and it's supposed to be. Like I said, they're not giving away cars. A lot of the time everyone ends up getting something for their trouble anyway.
