No octopus for you!

Octopus First, the Soup Nazi and now the Octopus Nazi.

You know how the demented good people of Detroit like to throw an octopus on the ice during Red Wings playoff games? Well, Pittsburgh is doing its best to make sure it doesn't happen in the Steel City. Check out this story.

Meantime, Penguins fans should start their own tradition of throwing smelly stuff on the ice. How about a catfish out of the Monongahela River? Or how about a few rusted Iron City Beer cans? Or, here's an idea: maybe Pittsburgh fans should do the right thing and not throw anything on the ice. Hate to break it to you, Detroit, but the whole octopus thing? That was soooo 1998.
