Just a few weeks after the Pittsburgh Penguins played their final game in their old arena and saw their championship hopes swirl down the drain against the 8th-seeded Montreal Canadiens, the team is asking 250 soot-faced students to join construction manager P.J. Dick-Hunt in testing toilets at their new arena. The team is calling it “Student Flush,” a s***** pun on their student rush program that they ripped off from Broadway shows like Rent.
Penguins president David Morehouse gushes about the s***** idea:
I don’t know that anyone has ever done a promotion around the required simultaneous flushing of the toilets in a new facility, but we thought we could have some fun with it. Students make up such a large part of our fan base that we thought we’d offer them a chance to participate and help us out. And obviously spending the day in a bathroom beats another hard day studying coal mine-ology.
Representatives of PJ Dick Hunt will also join in the simultaneous orgy of toilet flushing.
UPDATE: Fun Fact from our friends at Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies —
