Game Six of the Stanley Cup Hockey Final is tonight, at the hockey venue in downtown Saint Louis, and everyone in Saint Louis* wants them to win this particular game because then they'd finally win the championship, and win it at home. They could win it in Game Seven, but then it would be in Boston.
*Everyone. I was in a work meeting Friday, and The Hockey Game should have been on the Agenda. Someone even played Gloria on their cell phone.
The City Powers have been showing the game on the display at the hockey arena, and at the big screen by the ballpark, but now they've taken three square blocks of downtown and devoted them to a watch party.
I would go, because I'd like to hear the noise the city makes when they win or if they lose, but I feel this is fundamentally Not A Good Idea. There's going to be a bad call (say, the referees will blatantly ignore a trip or a hand pass) and there will be thousands of angry, angry people in a small space.
