I live in DC and was watching the game at a local sports bar (Glory Days if you must know)... And much to the chagrin of most of the people in the place, my family walks in donned in Pens gear.
Then something funny happened. Our waiter said "You know, I'm on your side."
I had thought that might be the case as the star on his hat was clearly Dallas. But then I found out it wasn't because of the city-rivalry for which he was cheering against the Capitals.
No... He said - "Sunday Ovi came in with 7 pals at 10:50 despite the fact that we close at 11:00. Well, he's a star and stars get better treatment. At that point I was the only one around and was ferrying drinks and such to this table after my shift had ended. Finally they had their fill and paid the bill. A $150 tab.
"I hope Ovi gets in a fight and they lose. Cause if the Pens don't rough him up, you know next time when he and his posse come walking in..." - At this he jokingly flexes.
I thought it was funny and thought you guys might appreciate the story.
