I love it, especially since the tradition (honored more in the breach than the observance) is to throw octopus, not squid.
Frisking must not be a favorite duty of arena security.
Not squid related, but I came across the short story / tall tale "Bruce Schneier and the King of the Crabs" this morning. It can be found at http://tinyurl.com/3ogc2b
Security tries to stop people from bringing octopus in, but they apparently smuggle them in inside trashbags hidden on their stomachs. And from what I hear, huge android obese stomachs are pretty common in Hockeytown. I saw someone launch one in game 6 but NBC tried to cut away from it quickly. Quick! Protect me from comedic and mythological/ superstitious tradition! Brb going to church
