    If you're gonna throw an octopus on the ice, boil it first. It looks a lot cooler & doesn't smell. Plus, everyone around you will thank you for not getting slimed!

    Visit the concession stands where people are wearing red smocks, they are non-profits who get a portion of the sales for that game.

    When they play Don't Stop Believin', you must shout out real loud, "South Detroit." It's a rule and will give you street cred.
