Proof of life

No, today's post isn't dedicated to the bad 2000 movie starring Russell Crowe and Meg Ryan. It's dedicated to this YouTube video we stumbled on yesterday.

It shows former Penguins defenseman Darius Kasparaitis getting popped into the Devils bench by New Jersey forward Bobby Holik during the 2001 Eastern Conference final.

We don't know what to be more stunned by. The fact that hatred for Kasparaitis could've made a typically dead crowd in New Jersey cheer like that or that there were actually people at a Devils game this century.
