Special: Late Night Playoff Game Mini Survival Kit

I thought that with this game going so late and with everyone OBVIOUSLY staying up however long it lasts, I would let you all in on my patented Late Game survival kit. Most of these things any Wingnut will already have. If you don't it's no big deal, Christmas isn't THAT far away, right...?

Okay, so let's get to it, we're burning day, er...ceiling...light:

1.) Coffee Mugs - An absolute must. Any lover of playoff hockey has to learn to tolerate coffee at some point. A word of advice: lighter roast = more caffeine. alternatively if it's more your thing (as it is mine), you can substitute coffee with whatever cocktail of alcohol you prefer, as it helps ensure you'll keep yourself up with all the screaming and shouting you're going to do at the TV/laptop screen.

2) Coasters - Any amounts of drinkage is gonna require some seriously stylish spill-protection. Some fancy coasters like the ones you see pictured are perfect for the job. Not only are they sturdy and sexy but also provide great coverage for your drink-setting surface, so when you're flailing at the bullshit penalty or stomping your feet in celebration of a Red Wings goal, you know you're covered.

3.) Miniature Stanley Cup (Complete with Wings logo) - It is always important to remember what you're playing for, and what better to do that than your own little Stanley? Sporting an owner's tag, I mean...your team of choice, on the front, it's the best way to keep your eyes on the prize and not drooping toward dreamland.

I'll be up till the end of the game to do a post-game report, but till then Wingnuts, enjoy the game!!
