If you want to see Storm skydive, help get us over 6,000 likes on Facebook! on.fb.me/PtZff8Oh yeah, that's a totally normal hockey tweet for mid-August... Or not.

There's something about seeing a giant blue
furby tiger fall out of the sky that is something I'd like to see happen. It's minor league promotions like these (see also: pink jerseys, Rod Blagojevich Prison Night) that are wacky, fresh and straight up nuts. Jumping someone out of a plane in a big blue tiger costume certainly fits all of these criteria.
As of this posting the Sound Tigers had 5,951 likes on Facebook so it's safe to say this will happen sooner rather than later. Before this jump happens, I have two suggestions for the Sound Tigers to make this even better:
1) Make sure that this is all captured on video by someone else jumping out of the plane.
2) Also make Sound Tiger Twitter Legend Matt Donovan jump out of the plane and have him Tweet during the freefall.
So yeah, go ahead and like them on Facebook so we have something to watch this summer. It's a lot better than getting worked up about the CBA, something fans have no say in (sigh).
