Lol, I think it started with the Octopus in Detroit. 8 arms on the Octopus, 8 wins (at the time) for the Stanley Cup.

Each club has their own stupid reason for doing it, Florida with Rats, Nashville with Catfish, etc. It's dumb.

HOLY CRAP, SINCE1952. I WATCH HOCKEY ONLY FOR FLYERS, AND NOT THAT MUCH AS OF LATE, NEVER PAID MUCH ATTENTION TO THE REST OF LEAGUE.

Everything is child's play compared to a deerspine with head.

NEVER ENTERED MY FEEBLE MIND TO TRY TO TOSS THE SOMABITCH ON THE FIELD. COPS TOLD ME I COULDN'T TAKE IT IN ANYWAY.
TRIED TO HAND IT TO HIM. YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WAS A RATTLESNAKE WITH AIDS THE WAY HE MOVED HIS HAND AWAY.

Default I think it started with Detroit and the octopus.

Red Wing fans would throw an octopus on the ice. Eight legs. Eight games to win the Cup, back then.


For Florida, I believe that a player beat a rat to death with his stick before a playoff game, and the team made it to the Finals that year. Fans took to throwing rubber rats on the ice after that.


Nashville and the catfish....who knows? Just a hick thing to do, I guess.

I'VE GIVEN THIS SOME THOUGHT. IF PHILLY IS KNOWN FOR CHEESE STEAKS, MAYBE WE SHOULD BE THROWING COWS ON THE ICE.
JUST A THOUGHT AT 2:40 A.M.
