Fun in Tampa!

As you may have known, I had a trip to Tampa, where I will be moving. I took in a game and documented the trip here.  This post is a LOT of pictures, so pay attention. Remember, each picture is worth 1000 words a piece!

Number, but no name. It’s just…weird. Then again, this was a leafs jersey, so I’m ok.

If you get a head injury in Tampa, it’s your own fault. Be careful, Sidney Crosby.

Fun fact: Tampa’s “ice girls” never go on the ice to shovel or whatever ice girls do. They just hold signs. I wonder if they’re hiring…

See, I love me some nachos, but I hate how unequal they are. Some nachos have ALL THE CHEESE AND SALSA, but then a lot have very little. It’s capitalism, if capitalism was delicious. 

At some point, there was a collision and some moron in back yelled something like “DON’T HIT HIM TOO HARD YOU’LL DISLODGE HIS TAMPON!” Because, you see, comparing pro athletes to women to say they are weak and you disapprove of them is funny.  Especially if you can invoke menstruation, AKA when ALL WOMEN ARE EVEN LESS RATIONAL AND OK THAN NORMAL AMIRITE, FELLAS? Needless to say, I wanted to start some fights.

When the score was 3-0 Leafs, there were some great drives. Tampon Guy yelled something like “It’s Toronto! THEY CAN’T SCORE!” I wanted to be all “SCORBOARD YOU FUCKIN TROGLODYTE. LOOKIT”, but I was too jolly to do much.
