I think IF the worst case scenario happens and I got booked on it, I think I could beat the charge due to the precedence and acceptableness of hat trick hats. In a court of law it would be hard to explain why that is acceptable and the octopus is not.
I also think it's completely hypocritical of the NHL to say we can't do this yet they continue to use footage of Al swinging the octopi in their 'Because it's the Cup' commercials.
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.
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?
Edmonton is just so bad I don't see them really being a problem for such a desperate team...you never know though. I'm far more concerned with Columbus, and the possibilities tomorrow. If Columbus can lose in regulation, and Detroit wins, well clinch a playoff spot.
This needs to happen so I don't have a heart attack on Saturday.
Perhaps you wish to take this to PM's? In this context, fairly novel should be taken to mean uncommon, rare etc... which would certainly apply, since you know, there are 1,230 total games in a regular hockey season, and we are talking about 6 games. FYI, I might have also used 'fairly unique', which also wouldn't make sense from a strict dictionary perspective, but to anyone not being purposefully obnoxious... would likely be taken to mean uncommon, rare, etc.
So that being said, since you stated you do in fact understand what I am trying to say, I am surprised you think that 6 games out of 1230 would not be considered uncommon or rare...?
I'm confused...are we talking about you or somebody else?
What's less common, 1 out of 1230 or 6 out of 1230?
