Ducks Off the Ice by Adam Brady

Last night's 15th annual Anaheim Ducks Casino Night Presented by The Klein Family could have been one of the best of the half dozen or so I've attended. Guests came in their most stylish attire to match the Center Ice White Out theme of the night, which for whatever reason drew the most attractive crowd of any I've seen at that event (I'll decline to elaborate).

A few other highlights from the night:

- Me digging out the too-tight white pants and awful white buckled shoes that I wore for the Casino Night two years ago, when it was a '70s theme. That combined with an untucked white dress shirt made me look like I was in pajamas.

- Arriving at the same time as Teemu Selanne and his wife Sirpa, then watching Teemu lunge for the down button just a half-second too late before the elevator doors closed. I said, "I thought they called you The Flash." He snapped his fingers. The elevator doors opened. 

- Watching Jonas Hiller dance impressively to "Baby Got Back" (as well as assorted other songs) with his gal and a few other player WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends).

- This photo (I just think it looks cool). Check out all the photos here.



- Although, sometimes the best photos come before the actual photo. (Courtesy OC Register.)

- The assorted dancers covered in full body suites and surrounded by a giant ... let me just show you the picture.



- George Parros being the only guy to wear something different than the white suit and v-neck t-shirt provided to the players, which you can see in this picture, along with Devante Smith-Pelly artfully incorporating the boot for his broken foot with his ensemble.



-  Teemu talking in this video about the night's theme: "We have been too many times cowboys, so it's good." (Taking that quote out of context would confuse a lot of people.)

- Jason Blake, asked in this video about which player looked best, opening with "I probably don't even need to wear a suit. I'm all white." Then saying, "I would proably say Teemu. He's 41 years old and he just glows. Every time he steps in a room, he electrifies. He owns it."

- Just watching the guys pose for every picture, sometimes obliging to be the photographer of said pictures, enthusiastically take part in every conversation with every fan, and just generally be good dudes.

Come back here later today for a preview of a unique upcoming weekend for the Ducks.
