What is the most annoying or stupidest thing you've heard someone say at a hockey game?
On a couple episodes of our podcast, Kings World Podcast (why, yes, that was a shameless plug), Connie and I have ranted about some of the atrocious comments we've heard at hockey games that have made our ears bleed. While we're still in favor of exposing people to hockey and expanding the reach of the game, sometimes we wish noobs would keep their comments to themselves. C'mon people, think before you speak!
In our next podcast episode we're going to list our top pet peeves about sitting near non-hockey fans and we would love to hear from other hockey fans too. What makes you cringe? When someone asks, "What's that red line?" Or is it when someone says, "They allow fighting?" The most recent asinine comment I heard at a Kings game was, "I'm still not sure if I'm going to be a Kings fan or a Ducks fan?" (and yes, it took every bit of self restraint not to strangle the guy next to me when those words came spewing out of his mouth.) You don't see me wondering if I'm going to be a Patriots fan or a Giants fan or asking what a strike is. Sometimes if you don't know, just keep that thought to yourself and Google the question to save yourself the embarrassment. The interwebs are a wonderful thing.
Leave your rants in the comments or send one of us an email and we'll be sure to include it in our next podcast. Because let's be honest, while screaming "Shoot!!!!" more than once per game is annoying, nothing's worse than having to hear the person behind you explain to a friend that there are 3 periods in the game, not 3 quarters.
