I happened to be in Winnipeg for business this winter and took advantage to see a game at
the MTS Centre for the first season of the new Jets. It was ridiculous.

This kid was sitting next to me at the game and I asked his Dad if I could take a photo. There is only one other
person in the world I know who would devour cotton candy like this guy - my wife!
