To ensure that the plumbing in Consol Energy Center – their brand-spanking-new arena – can handle the water flow, the Pittsburgh Penguins are holding something they are calling the “Student Flush” on June 10th. At this exciting event, all the toilets, urinals and the like in the arena will be flushed simultaneously.
125 college students will be selected and each one of them will be asked to bring a friend. Upon arrival, those 250 people will ordered to let their flushing fingers fly. Talk about a wonderful idea for a first date for the cash-poor college student. It’s either this or ramen by candlelight, which doesn’t seem so bad if you think about it, although I’d still stick with the mass flushing. Sharing your ramen with someone is much more of a second date kind of thing.
