With no fans in attendance to inform about upcoming games or participate in contests during intermission, what is a public address announcer to do?
The answer, seemingly for the Colorado Avalanche, is to play some video games.
On Friday during intermission of its game against the St. Louis Blues, the team shared a gigantic game of Pong that was being projected on to the ice.
Each Pong paddle was placed along the goal line with the very familiar [to fans of a certain age] square ball bouncing back and forth.
Friday wasn't the first time the ice at Ball Arena played host to a classic video game. Avalanche announcer Conor McGahey shared a game of solitaire on Wednesday.
The Avalanche are home next on Jan. 26. Anyone up for some Minesweeper?
