Puck Daddy - NHL

The history of between-periods audience participation entertainment at hockey games probably begins with 50/50 raffles; then music trivia questions; then it moves onto the ice with Score-O and other shooting games; then we venture into the wacky world of tricycle races, sumo wrestling matches and, of course, human bowling balls and/or hockey pucks.

If you've ever marveled at those fans that sit in a large "puck" and get sling-shot across the ice into an inflatable net, prepare to witness it first hand. This is pretty cool:

Honestly, we didn't anticipate that impact. A few beers in ye, and it could be a pretty messy scene.

This video is from the Grand Rapids Griffins, the Detroit Red Wings' AHL affiliate that previously used the Go-Pro camera to film a practice — including a stick's-eye view of the action.

We eagerly await their next experiment. Hopefully they can figure out a way to put a camera on a T-shirt launched from an cannon. Or on a linesman breaking up a fight. Or on a linesman launched from a cannon. One of the three.
