Late night at the Igloo

I went to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup playoffs last night for what will be my last game of the season. It’s not that I don’t think that the Pens can come back from a 3 games to 1 deficit but there’s no way I’m shelling out the cash people are asking for tickets. I heard of one scalper asking for $500 to sit in F balcony. My price, $77.

NBC and the NHL have decided that each game will start at 8pm. The problem with this is after a long game the parking garages are a mess to get out of. Last night I finally made it home around midnight after dodging cars running red lights, people not following the pattern for merging lanes in a garage so they can get one car ahead and the always popular “I never saw the 20 signs that say to pay before returning to your car”.

The game as a whole sucked. The officiating was a blatant slap in the face of anyone who knows the rules of the sport and disrespected fans. I’m not saying this because the Pens lost either. Calls on both sides were neglected and the ones that were call were horseshite. The capper for my evening were these 2 boneheads in front of me.

The jagoff in the Wing Nut hat was pissing people off all game. Her hat was blocking the view of the net, she’d get up and dance every break and that guy with the light was annoying as hell. Well with 2:30 left in the game the Wing Nut made LightHead go to the usher and had the guy sitting next to her removed because his towel was getting in her way. You have to be freaking kidding me! I saw the whole thing and she was bent because he waved his towel. The fact the usher told the kid to leave with that much left in the game wasn’t
just stupid it pissed off all of us in F balcony. Oh yeah and the game was still going on so now we had 4 people blocking our view. Freaking nuts.

Here are my pics from last night
