We had two fat, scraggly Nashville women fans beside us in airbrushed shirts. They kept yelling. "C'mawn boys, get 'em!"

Hahahha the last game I went to, we had a two hipsters behind us yelling "PUCK CONTROL"

They guy in front of us was a high-five maniac.

Also: Hopefully your new burrito drop pic is crisper. They other one was great, but fuzzy motion phone pics are the norm. I love the idea of burritos drop from the sky on parachutes. Who the fuck came up with that.

Here are some pictures I took, I hope that these resized appropriately. If not sry sry sry till I get it fixed.



They renamed the box office the "Big Lots Box Office", which is lame as all hell and, as someone I know pointed out, makes it sound like they sell tickets to the games no one else wants to go to. These people are students waiting for the last minute student section to open up. Everything else was sold out.



Line of students curving around the block. I had to step over one to get to Tim Horton's (big round building behind them).



Warmups. Mr. Kitsa has a mancrush on #40 Jared Boll. (3rd in from right)





BUT HE ALSO LIKES HOCKEY AMIRITE HIGHFIVE



Stinger plays behind the badguy from Karate Kid?



Cameraman started to film me holding my daughter, but then the person whose seat he was sitting in came back from the bathroom and he moved. No airtime for us.



Parachute shot 1. I don't think it was chipotle this time, I think it was water bottles, but the delivery method was identical.



Someone grabbing one.

Anyways, I created a league and I had to email myself the link.

Ok, I fucked up on that tiebreaker thing, I misread it and thought it said winning team points when it said total points...tried to fix it but don't know if it took...oh well. Here goes nothing and I fully expect to have my bracket all kinds of wrong.

I didn't say? Those things are awesome. I wouldnt care about whats attached to them. A water bottle does sound like a bad idea if a chute doesnt open

I was trying to get a close look at one to see the construction. A lot of times when people win the papa johns pizzas, they just take out the gift card and leave the box under the seat. I was hoping someone would have kept the water bottle and ditched a parachute- wanted to grab one just to see how it was made. They'd almost have to make sure they were open and spread out before they dropped them, otherwise they'd just be dropping shit on people from the rafters.

The giveaway that night was team posters. There was an asshole going around during intermissions, stealing posters that people had stuck behind their seat while they were in the bathroom or whatever. I also noticed that he had about 4 t-shirt-cannon shirts on at once, so he must just be one of those freebie-grubbing bastards that would just grab anything. I bet he got a water bottle (

I have only ever "won" things from the CBJ twice, and the first time was more of a favor. I couldn't make it to a Boll signing and his manager had me send my poster to him. It was signed and fedexed back to me within the week. Then I did some sort of papa johns vote for a pizza thing, and I won tickets through that. Couldn't go that night and had to give them to a cousin

It looks like the chutes are colapsable, so Im guessing that they dangle them off the rafter and trust they open. Maybe they have a device that keeps the chute open before the drop them. Either way, Im surprised no one has been splattered by a burrito.

I think according to that one article, the "burritos" were a shirt and a coupon for a free burrito wrapped like a burrito in a wrapper. Honestly, it did look like it was raining burritos, so great effect.

Speaking of dropping shit on people from the rafters, I had a friend who worked in Merchandising for the Chicago Theatre. She had an office on this high balcony overlooking all of the merchandising stalls in the lobby. I went to see her one time and she was leaned out over the balcony holding a stapler in her hand, honestly debating dropping it three stories to see what would happen. I told her it was probably a bad idea dropping something as dense and heavy as a stapler from that height. Then we looked down and realized that if she'd dropped it, it would have landed square on Oprah and her entourage, who had shown up for a matinee of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Therefore, I saved Oprah's life.

Honest to god.

Ah! That makes sense. Earlier this morning I found this on google, but the weight limit seemed to mot apply. There is a video at the bottom. I guess this company sells these type of parachutes to sporting events.

also, I think Oprahs fat head could easily take a stapler from 20 stories.

So the games start again tomorrow and I cant find on on my local channels. My dish package has 8 espn channels but they always say alternative and seem to have nothing on them.

I hope to god that this stupid nhl.com 50 dollar thing I bought a few months ago lets me actually watch a fucking Kings game.

You know, that's what made her instantly identifiable, apart from the cameras and security and cloud of hangers-on, and the House Manager falling over herself in her rush to be the one to greet her. She had a massive head. This was during her "look at this wagon load of fat I lost" days, in the early 90s.

Thanks, Kit, I totally missed the tiebreaker in the final. It saved as "zero" goals scored in the final, which would have been rather odd. Still, is it the total number of goals in the final GAME or in the final ROUND? Maybe this is what separates the hockey wannabes from the hockey playas.

Wait until tomorrow night to check out how ridiculous we all did. Or me at any rate.

Go Flyers! (wait, what?)

I took it as goals in the final game, but what the fuck do I know. I've never done a bracket before.

If it's goals in the last game, then I have both teams skating 6 on 6 for 3 periods.

EDIT:

I'd guess by the wording that means total goals in the final round, and not in the final game.
