IT’s Halloween, and if you’re like me, you constantly forget that Halloween falls during the NHL season. It doesn’t seem like it fits, does it? I think winter and spring wihen I think hockey, not autumn Of course, the Wild offense IS ghastly, so perhaps I should be reminded of that fact every time Mikko Koivu opts to pass instead of shooting at a wide open net.
But I digress. This year, we are treated to a game between the Sharks and the Rangers. Good costume ideas all around. Obviously, the shark is the master of the sea and would be fantastic for a prospective trick or treater. On the other hand, the “Ranger” could be a Power Ranger or a Walker Texas Ranger. Lots of chances for creativity out there.
Of course, I expect most people to throw on a hockey jersey, and say they are a hockey player. (If you were wondering, I am going to be Doug for Halloween. Doug Funnie)
… For every pumpkin shown on a graphic or as part of a live shot. There will be many. Be warned.
… For every legitimate costume you seen in the crowd. Twice if it is a Shark or Ranger themed costume. Thrice if it’s Land Shark.
… If John Tortorella is dressed as “slutty John Tortorella”
… if there are ghosts at MSG. (There are)
