SID GAME DAY INTERVIEW: 5/19/2013
Penguins Pre-Practice/Workout: 5/18/2013
When the guys were waiting for their equipment to get to the arena after they arrived there this afternoon, they passed the time by playing a game invented by assistant equipment manager Danny “Banker” Kroll. All it is is trying to get a roll of hockey tape to land onto a hook hanging from the ceiling of the visitors locker room hallway – like horseshoes, in a sense.
Robert Bortuzzo (he of the alley-oop dunk on the 76ers court in Philadelphia) was the first one to do it, and Sidney Crosby managed to do it as well. After that, though, the rest of the guys weren’t so lucky – especially Brandon Sutter. Poor Suttsy tried for a long time to no avail. So he then took a break, changed into his workout clothes and then came back out but still couldn’t get the roll of tape to land on the hook.
The best part was when about 5-10 guys plus coach Bylsma were all gunning for the hook at once in a big crowd. Rolls of tape were flying everywhere. Quite a scene.
Once all of their equipment arrived, the game was over. But they sure found an interesting way to occupy themselves while they waited.
