There’s your obligatory meme, now for some hard hitting analysis of the faces in the crowd, because, you can really learn a lot about a group from a simple photo.

Seriously, I mean it.

I did this again!

Now, for a quick look at who we have in attendance…

White Arrow: Girl and her friend on her cell phone. Presumably on ScoreMobile reading the latest content up here at Backhand Shelf, or listening to the soothing dulcet tones of Mr. Bourne and Mr. Pizzo discussing the NHL news of the day. Either way, thanks for being readers, girls!

Yellow Arrow: This fellow is completely unamused. His buddy asked him to come along tonight and he obliged thinking about that one time he went to a hockey game and had fun. But this, THIS action happening five feet in front of his face isn’t doing it for him. He can’t wait to get home and watch that episode of ‘Undercover Boss’ he is recording right now.

Green Arrow:
Brian Gionta, captain of the Montreal Canadiens, apparently.

 

In fairness, Jeff admitted he messed up, but you know, still.

Blue Arrow: This lady is also on her cellphone and also reading Backhand Shelf, of course. A source close to the lady (Dave, the dude in the Devils jersey in row 2), confirmed she was reading my earlier post on the prospective return of Dominik Hasek and forming an opinion in line with my own because she thinks I’m cool.

Purple Arrow: OH MY GOD IT’S CHRISTOPHER MOLTISANTI! I KNEW THE SOPRANOS WAS REAL! HE HAS HIS QUINTESSENTIAL SURPRISED LOOK!

Pink Arrow: I’m not really sure what guy wearing the pink shirt is looking at. Maybe he’s searching for his friend getting the popcorn, or perhaps he’s yelling back at the usher who told him to stop hitting the glass, or perhaps he’s having a staring contest with….

Red Box: J. JONAH JAMESON!

A few folks wanted a Sad Clown photoshop contest… Well, here’s this guy.

Do your best, #BShelfers. Do your best.
