These two things happened to me during the last game I attended: Girls, or guys (females are usually more quilty of this) that go to a game and sit behind you and either: A) talk on their cell phones the whole game about their jobs or somthing totally unrelated to the game or B) talk NONSTOP throughout the whole game about their boyfriends pet or their favorite nailpolish My question is WHY did you buy these seats, spend that kind of money, (our tickets are never under 70 bucks), to a hockey game when you could have had that same freaking conversation at a Tim Horton's? If it does not relates to the game I am watching I don't want to hear you rattle on about it for sixty flipping minutes! Also, I wanna know who comes up with these stupid annoying gimmicks to give out before the games. The latest genious idea was the "spirit sticks" I am sure that you have seen them. They are the plastic, ballon-type sticks that you clap together to make noise during the game. They look harmless enough, I mean how loud can slapping two plastic sticks be during a hockey game? We found out soon enough, when a kid sat beside me during the game and pounded them together, without ceasing for three straight periods. I wanted to pound them over his head before the night was through.
