Doing Stuff: Day 5, Philadelphia Phantoms Hockey
A Philadelphia Phantoms minor league hockey game must feel exactly like watching a sporting event in a labor camp. The few people who actually want to be at this event are frighteningly into it. The concussive non-stop jock jams, outdated metal and sound effects drained me to the point of submission. And the only point the mostly board crowd was into it came when a Phantom and a member of the Manitoba Moose got into a fistfight -- much as how I imagine prisoners enjoy watching fellow inmates brawl over phone cards in a cafeteria.
