Hockey Parade

Driving to work this morning, I was listening to the radio DJs talking about the Red Wings parade, scheduled to occur in downtown Detroit today. Apparently all the players were supposed to ride on the back of convertibles with the tops down, but it's very windy and rainy downtown, so they were wondering if a change would be made.

"It's okay, they're hockey players, they can take it."

"Yeah, but what about the vehicles? There are going to be a whole bunch of damaged convertibles hitting the market after the parade."

"True, they'll all smell like wet dog."

No, much worse, I said to myself.....they'll smell like wet hockey player.
