Surely there has been at least one point in your live-sports-viewing-tenure when the t-shirt cannon started making the rounds and you thought: “How sweet would it be if some legit food came shooting out of that thing?”
The University of Nebraska-Omaha has answered that call with the unveiling its partnership with Voodoo Taco and the introduction to an epic taco cannon.
Sure, the Mavericks fan base should already be stoked about their new arena which is set to be ready for season-opening puck drop next October. But add artilery to feed the masses yummy street food goodness, and you have an idea that should probably be copied by every college hockey barn in the nation.
The Omaha-based Mexican joint announced its partnership with UNO via social media on Wednesday, with the subtle: “Look for our logo and taco cannon at the new arena!” (You know, as if a taco cannon is so common place at the hockey rink.)
To err on the side of caution however: Let’s hope that these tacos are packaged in such a way that they aren’t mistaken for flying hockey pucks, or visa versa. The last thing the Mavs probably want is for an inebriated fan to dive mouth first into what they think is a flying taco and end up losing their teeth to the hockey gods.
