More or less an actual scene from the NHL All-Star Fan Fair in Raleigh on Sunday:
Friend #1: Hey! Is that a dragon?
Me: Why is there a blue and orange dragon here?
Friend #2: I think that’s the Islanders’ mascot.
Me: I don’t care about mascots. Unless Youppi’s here. I want a picture with Youppi.
Friend #2: Who’s Youppi?
Me: Whaaaa?! You know, the big orange thing that used to be the Expos’ mascot but then got adopted by the Canadiens when the Expos went away?
Friend #1: Oh, yeah, I think I know what you’re talking about. What’s the big deal?
Kid right in front of us in line for the hardest slap shot: You mean that guy over there? Points
I duck under the rope and run towards Youppi while a confused friend follows me with his camera.
