As much as I want to provide you with as many answers as possible whenever I publish an article, I have to admit that this particular event during Saturday night’s game between the Montreal Canadiens and Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center has left me perplexed.
In all honesty, I have more questions than anything else.
During a break in play, a camera inside the rink caught a couple of Canadiens fans in the crowd enjoying some food. All appeared to be well and dandy until realizing the woman was holding a gigantic container of mayonnaise in one hand and a spoon in the other.
Warning: The following video may be disturbing to viewers with regular eating habits.
I had no issue with what was going on until I actually saw the woman put a spoonful of the condiment to her face. That is just something that can’t be unseen.
Where did she get the jar of mayo from? Did she bring it from home? And if she did, why carry such a large jar? What was that conversation with security like upon entering the building? And, most importantly, do you really need over a litre of the stuff to have an enjoyable evening at a hockey game?
Again, I don’t have the answers to these questions. In fact, I don’t even know if the container is actually full of mayo. There’s only two people that actually know what the substance is. However, if it is mayonnaise, there’s no denying the power of Hellmann's. Their product had those two in quite the trance before they figured out they were on the big screen.
While I’ve joked about and judged these two plenty, they may have actually been on to something. If I was watching my favourite team in a game they’d eventually lose 4-1, this would likely be the state I’d want to be in. Some people achieve that with alcoholic beverages. Others, meanwhile, seem to have found a cheaper option that’s just a little harder on the arteries.
