The Ottawa Senators decided to have some fun with the crowd before their Thursday night home opener. The good people at Canadian Tire Centre dropped giant white beach balls into the crowd.
The balls spilled fans’ beers and according to some on social media, may have injured children.
The Ottawa Senators dropped weird heavy beach balls on the crowd during warmups tonight.
The balls spilled a lot of beer and injured some children.

Even TSN’s Brent Wallace was caught in the crossfire.

One fan said it was like a “turkey shoot.” But hey, maybe that’s the vibe they were going for?
The #sens just released dozens of giant beach balls in the crowd. It was like a turkey shoot – people getting whacked left and right. Worst promo I’ve seen since the 67’s had a puck toss.

It could all just be another clever joke we don’t get.

Maybe this is a brilliant scheme by Eugene Melnyk.
Melnyk’s plan is to spill beer on the fans which will have them spill THEIR cup of beer or overfill their cups. This will get the fans to either A)Buy another beer or B)Get them drunk enough so that they’ll want more and make them forget they’re at an Ottawa Senators game

Someone should interview him about it. It can’t be worse than last time, can it?
