This week's pictures are courtesy of the lovely little "puck bunny" that showed up to the game last Wednesday in Calgary complete with a white dress and veil and a sign that read "MARRY ME SIDNEY." [If you'd like to read more about it, CLICK HERE].
The message she was sending went a little bit deeper than the sign she held and even though she may know the "in's-and-out's" of the game of hockey or could analyze last Wednesday's game with the best of them, her appearance told a different story superficially and we all placed her in the steretypical category we're all too familiar with. I truly mean no harm to her or her character (I'm sure she's a lovely girl that could have as much "hockey smarts" as the next guy); however, by putting herself out there like that she made an impression ... one that she may not be concerned about, but I am (and we all, as female fans, should be)!!
THIS, ladies, is "public enemy #1" to all of us ... THIS is the very reason that we as females have such a hard time being taken seriously by men (as well as other female fans). So, thank you Ms. Blondie Bride, for having us females take two steps back when the day before we worked so hard to take the first step forward to begin with.
YES, I'll be the first to admit that I find the players attractive (for crying out loud, I have an entire blog dedicated to it), but what sets me, along with alot of other female fans, apart from this stereotype is the fact that I wouldn't show up to a game (or watch one) being more concerned about having Sid or any other player notice me than actually watching the game itself. I watch the game of hockey for the enjoyment of the sport and appreciate the talent of the players on the ice and not in the hopes of finding myself a husband.
On the lighter side of this story, here are other pictures throughout the rest of the Pens western trip of guys who decided to poke fun at this young lady (quite amusing and I'm sure the guys on the team were entertained as well!)!!! Actually, these two men represent what the majority (if not ALL) of the men thought after seeing the girl show up to the Flames game last Wednesday night - a big joke.
AND FOR GOOD MEASURE (to end on a positive note) ... I'll throw in a picture of Sid because this post is supposed to be about him after all!! ; )
