I’m the guy at the hockey game who likes to yell “Drop the puck” at the officials when I think he’s keeping the guys with the sticks waiting in the faceoff circles too long.
Last week I learned a new meaning of one of my favorite phrases between periods of the Syracuse Crunch contest. They told some kids around the concourse of the Onondaga County War Memorial to let loose with pucks at a big target they’d placed at center ice.
Hundreds of the black rubber discs bounced about and settled, some quite close to the red line, some not so.
And then it got even crazier, as another bunch of kids scurried around the ice picking up the pucks, appearing to grab as many as they could, while a squad skated around with big brooms sweeping up others.
If anybody knows what this is all about, please feel free to explain what might be one with an accurate toss from afar.
Drop the puck!
Have you ever won something with a feat of skill, and if so, please explain. What do you think the puck toss might entail? How many pucks do you think you could gather up running around against all those kids?
