MAY DAY UPDATE: Brad May DID Kiss an Octopus. Sort of.1
I always wanted confirmation that this really happened.
1. Brad May picks up an octopus with his stick
2. Brad May then kisses said stick
3. Brad May picks up likely the most iconic goal in Sabres history
Thanks to the wondrous social media that links us now – 20 years to the date – it’s finally confirmed.
We’ve all seen LaFontaine dish that puck laying on the ice. We’ve all seen May school Ray Bourque and Andy Moog. But we don’t get to see the kiss much. And we never get to see the octopus stuff.
@scottymcss this is true! Not the brightest bulb on the tree back then, but I remember it, like it was yesterday. Gotta love playoff hockey!

The May Day goal just quadrupled in hockey lore value.
And my quest, is at an end.
next post: We need to be OK with this.
