"Z A M B O N I!!!"

Tigers beat the Wisconsin Eau Claire "Blugolds" 9-1 tonight, but that's not why I'm here...

After the first period, the lights were turned off and a smoke machine started near the Zamboni door. Spot lights fly around, music starts playing and the siren begins to wail as Stu drives onto the ice in a brand new Zamboni sporting a shiny black finish and orange lettering with FLAME details around the fender and wheel wells, and CHROME WHEELS! This thing looks like a monster straight out of the A-Team. KICK-ASS!!! It even has Stu's name painted near the back on the sides. I wish I had my camera tonight. Oh man...

As Stu entered the rink and began doing donuts with the new Zamboni in front of a roaring crowd, a 10-foot blimp was launched into the air. Black with an orange and white tiger head on the front, it was flown around the inside of the rink between periods by remote control. It's a very sleek design using just 3 fans, two of them that can be angled up, straight or down for propulsion, climbing or diving. All those controls PLUS a camera fit inside a unit on the bottom of the blimp no bigger than a shoe. Behind the corner crew they set up a TV that was picking up the signal transmitted from the cam. That was so cool. :)

Tomorrow night we get to slap those "Blugolds" around again. What the heck is a Blugold anyway? Well, tomorrow I'll definitely bring my camera and get some cool shots of the new Zamboni, and the blimp if they do that again too. :)

Ahhh... yes... that was SO FREAKING AWESOME!!!! Zamboni... *pant-pant*... Can't wait 'til tonight... hopefully my voice will have returned to full strenth by then...

If your voice hasn't returned to full strength, does that mean silence will be on the power play?

huh? whaaaa?

What you mean, boy?

I was trying to make a hockey joke. Your voice, wasn't at full strength, so it must have been short handed. That would make the opposite of your voice, aka silence, be on the power play.

Obviously, this point was missed. Oh well.

Survey SAYS!...

X

You for got the "aennnnnnt!" buzzer sound.

A sound clip would have to be hosted somewhere. And people hate embedded sounds. And I doubt LJ allows the code for them anyway.

Besides, I think the X speaks for itself. :-P

With friends like this, who needs enemies?

Tick me off, and I will play nothing but The Macarena at the hockey game.

You would threaten us with an improvement, sir? ;)

That's it... I'm going to find some Indigo Girls music for you... you.... *grrr*

Current Mood: Pissed off.

Most people pick up a phone, or even instant message each other. Y'all are WEIRD!

Why do that when we can waste time being inefficient? :)

Actually, some people would argue that they can multitask and get more done at once if they don't have realtime conversations that demand their undivided attention.

However, my argument would be that while phone calls and IMs disappear, LJ comments stay around for posterity. hehe

Hey! We resemble that remark!

How narrow can this thing get if we keep replying?

Good question.

I was going to ask what you thought of my ability to shrink the damn thing on my own, but I still want to see how far this thing will go.

It will go as far as we take it.
