Since there is a big following of Red Wings fans down here (they were "America's Team" leading up to the time we got a team in '98 PLUS there are so many Detroit transplants down here thanks to GM and Nissan), they would always launch an octopus on the ice at our arena. We started to counter it with our own tradition. Which, in my opinion, makes fun of their tradition.
imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

There's also a difference between mockery and imitation. Perception is reality.

I'm seriously considering doing this during the game 3 tv timeout applause if we are winning. I'll be in Sec 119. It would be worth it.

I saw the dude who ran down and threw one during the finale, and it looked like the usher didn't even bother stopping him on his run back up the stairs. Wonder if all the ushers look the other way?

You should def do it!!!
