The "lucky butt-crack" is back! (all the way from Michigan)

From Fialkov at the Sentinel:


Butt-crack fan returns to give Panthers luck on Friday the 13th
by: Harvey Fialkov April 13th, 2012 | 1:57 PM

Release from “Paul & Young Ron Show.”

During the Panthers run to the Stanley Cup finals in 1996, “Paul & Young Ron Show” sidekick ‘Omelette’ was on the ice during intermission of the first home game at the Miami Arena, throwing t-shirts into the crowd.
He slipped and fell, ripping his pants, and his exposed buttocks touched the ice. The Panthers went on to win, so Paul and Young Ron, of course, took credit for the victory, stating that Omelette’s “Lucky Butt” was the reason.
Being superstitious sports fans, they didn’t want to jinx the team, so the “Butt” had to hit the ice before each home game.
A fan of the show created a pair of jeans with breakaway “butt flaps”, fastened to the jeans with velcro, and the Panthers, fueled by Omelette’s Lucky Butt, went on one heck of a tear. When it came time for the Stanley Cup finals, team management put the kibosh
on the butt, and the Panthers were swept in four by Colorado.
Fast forward to now.
Today is Friday the 13th and Florida plays the Devils! Think we need some luck? Omelette, now with WKLT in Traverse City, Michigan, is being flown in courtesy of ‘Charlie,’ a fan of the radio show and the Panthers.
Thanks to Charlie and Randy Moeller and Matt Sacco of the Panthers organization, the Lucky Butt returns and will hit the ice before warmups.

Paul Castronovo: “Before the puck drops, Omelette’s drawers will, hopefully
propelling the Panthers to another historic run.”

“Young” Ron Brewer: “The lucky butt returns, but this time he wears a pair of size 36 breakaway blue jeans, as opposed to the 32s he wore in ‘96. The bigger the butt, the bigger the victory, we hope.”

Dumbest **** I've seen at ANY game EVER. The fact that this moron was on the ice when the players came out for warmups probably got the Panthers in trouble with the league. So dumb.

Not to mention the thousands of little kids that were standing there - at the glass - to watch the players warm up. "Family friendly" indeed.
