Feeder Night at the Duke
Grub, Grog & Goals
11/9/06 - Mike Lee

The Feeder Faithful having a
blast at the Duke
What could be better than watching the Sharks pummel the Los Angeles Kings? That's easy. Watching them pummel the Kings with 30 of your hockey buds at a raucous pub. And so it went at TheFeeder's first ever Road Game Pub Night, held at the Duke of Edinburgh in Cupertino on Thursday night. The Feeder faithful showed up donning their Pacific Teal, ready to spend half the night pumping their fists into the air as goal after goal rained down on the Kings.

Most of the attendees were members of TheFeeder's online community. Those on hand enjoyed British fare and libations while the game was broadcast on the new HD plasmas hanging in fine pub fashion.

Things got off to a bit of a shaky start, when the pub manager couldn't find the broadcast on the telly. Calm was restored before the opening faceoff, allowing everyone to settle in for the game.

At both intermissions, separate Sharks trivia contests were held in traditional pub fashion. Mrs. Ski, SupaFly and Murfburger triumphantly topped the other participants, collecting some vintage Feeder T-shirts as prizes.

The highlight of the evening repeated itself seven times, as the pub erupted each time the Sharks scored. Seven San Jose goals had the regulars wondering what all the racket was all about. High-5's filled the room each time the Sharks scored. The roar of the crowd brought an energy to the room that the patrons of the Duke will not soon forget.

Special thanks go out to David M* for making the necessary arrangements with the pub. Can't wait until we get to do it all again.
