Los Angeles Kings fans got a little creative in taunting their New Jersey Devils opponents during Game 3 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals.
Behind the visiting team's bench, fans held up large cardboard heads of the cast members of the MTV reality show "Jersey Shore."
The gimmick might have worked after the Kings overwhelmed the Devils, 4-0 for a 3-0 series lead. It looks like New Jersey will be doing more hand-wringing than fist-pumping leading up to Game 4.
There was no way the Devils players could avoid seeing the giant heads of The Situation, Pauly-D, J-Woww and the usually pint-sized Snooki being waved behind their bench.
Ronnie, Sammi Sweetheart, Vinny, Angelina or Deena were no where to be seen.
It was pretty funny to see the enormous heads bobbing up and down behind the players but, in reality, the Devils don't have any players from Jersey. Who knows if coach Peter DeBoer or the players even knew who they were. Maybe if they held up giants heads of reality show stars from Stockholm or Moosejaw— they might have been in on the joke.
Anyway, kudos for the creativity.
If the Devils manage to pull out a victory in game 4, maybe New Jersey fans can make giant cutout heads of the characters from "90210" or "The Real Housewives of Orange County?" I imagine closeups of those old broads would just be plain scary.
