The Best Thing To Hit Tampa Since Mons Venus

Posted: October 22, 2011 by Keith Stone in hockey, NHL, Tampa Bay Lightning

Earlier this week, I talked about how gimmicks are awesome and help teams by reducing the montony of a tedious season. If it really is the case (and it is!), then the entire NHL needs to watch out for the Tampa Bay Lightning. As part of the renovations to the St. Pete Times Forum, the Lightning installed a tesla coil to shoot bolts of lightning after every goal. It’s fucking awesome. Last year, the Lightning was seventh in the league in scoring. Let’s hope Stamkos, St. Louis, and Lecavalier keep going because I can’t get enough of it. Either that, or it’s going to eventually hit somebody in the crowd and light them on fire. It’s a win-win. Sure beats throwing an octopus on the ice.
