Stanley Cup in style

My brother loves hockey.  He's played hockey since elementary school - first inline and then from high school until now, ice hockey.  He lives in Pennsylvania and his favorite team is the Flyers. So you can imagine how much of a big deal the Flyers being in the Stanley Cup is around our house.  This weekend he had a friend bring over an HD projector and we moved all the couches into the living room.
Then we watched the game.
The screen was so big that I couldn't even get my eyes to focus on the whole thing at once.  When they had close ups of players, the players on the screen were even bigger than Lauren.  It was pretty impressive.
We even made homemade thin mints for the occasion because they resembled hockey pucks.
They were delicious.  Definitely rivaled the girl scouts' version.
