We know that the Detroit Red Wings lost the Stanley Cup to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7. We also know that the octopus is a Detroit tradition dating back about 60 years. (For those who don’t know, octopus is thrown on the ice at Detroit’s home games at Joe Louis Arena. Its 8 tentacles signify the 8 games that used to be needed to win the Stanley Cup). So..
Saturday, the day after Game 7, I was still rather down and out about my beloved Wings. I turn on the Food Network show Iron Chef. What’s the secret ingredient of the day? OCTOPUS!!
What gives with that?
It’s bad enough my Wings were defeated, now I had to watch their tradition symbol being cooked. 🙁
I wonder if the Food Network execs are Penguin fans….:?
