We've already seen how a small crowd of about 4,000 Slovakian hockey fans puts over 15,000 NHL fans to shame with their enthusiastic post-game celebrations. NHL fans simply race for the exits while the Slovaks party like its 1999.
Now, how about during the game, during those frequent breaks and intermissions? NHL teams run boring trivia contests, fire t-shirts from a cannon, or give us a bit of eye candy with the Ice Girls. *yawn*
Over in Slovakia, they have a more entertaining solution to in-game stoppages: Pole Dancing! (Don't worry, it's safe for work). During a game in Skalica, they put out this makeshift pole-on-a-puck out onto the ice for a cute chick to dance around with. Quite the show, eh?
Don't you think a few NHL teams could stand to use this awesome marketing technique?
