That’s because the rookie forward, participating in his first-ever Skates & Plates event, was pranked by his older, wiser teammates. They told him to bring his hockey skates to the arena, as the name "Skates & Plates" meant he would be serving the tables while gliding around on the ice.

When we asked Bennett about it, he said he actually wouldn’t call it a prank “as I really thought we were going to be skating and serving the food to all the fans.”

Continued Bennett, laughing, “I thought they were going to bring our skates over and we were going to be skating on little aisles in between all the tables. So I was trying to get in the right mental state to do that tonight.”


:P :lol:


That is tremendous.

A lot of things fans do would make me feel weird. I mostly get weirded out by asking someone five years younger than you to sign your napkin so you can have an autograph. Pictures are less problematic. Jerseys are acceptable. But this just seems like an exclusive charity event. I would go quite willingly.

I'm actually starting to feel weird wearing jerseys. I started feeling weird about autographs when I was 10. I think it would be cooler if they were just at a table for dinner with you. Actually I think it would be cooler if you went on a bar crawl with them. :pop:

thats what ended up happening, Neal just grabbed a chair and sat down between my wife and sister and would occasionally refill the wine, it was way less awkward.

Same page. I feel like I'm outgrowing jerseys, though it pains me to come to this realization. The only Penguins I've seen in public was Michel Therrien (at PF Changs, of all places). I simply said "Hi. We are big fans." he responded "thanks" and that was that.

I think the only way I would feel comfortable is, if like you said, I was drinking with them (and not stalker-ishly creeping in the background).

I've been wondering if there was an age limit on hockey sweater wearing outside of one's home. I feel a little odd about wearing one out, especially when almost no one here is a hockey fan. :lol:

My brother in law, who is three years older than I am, has no issue wearing his Steelers jerseys out and about.

I have never worn won unless I was going to the game. I don't understand people just wearing jerseys "around".

Since you are wondering, I'll give you my opinion, from a female perspective:

That age would be about 14. No adult male (or female, for that matter) should wear a numbered athletic jersey in public beyond that age, because you look like a *****bag. A polo shirt with a small team logo, okay, but the jerseys/sweaters, no. Pittsburgh has a reputation for having a large population of men with no sense of fashion or style, and the jersey-wearers add to that rep and make them an easy target for ridicule.

JMHO. Opposing views welcomed.

I don't get that either. But then, in Pittsburgh, wearing team colors is an every day fashion statement.

Other than baseball (in the generic style sense) caps with team logos, I really don't see this in other cities.

I've look at the pics for this online. Everyone looks really nice in the white tie/tails. Except TK.

I'm sorry, that boy is just ugly. I know that's mean to say, but it's so true.

Female perspective also- Jersey wearing is appropriate at a hockey game or at a bar/friends house while watching the game. I love when fans "rep" their team at games. Drives me nuts when almost everyone (esp during play-off games) has on Penguin garb(jersey, tshirt, hat) but you will see 10-15 people too cool to wear the colors.
