Last night's Winnipeg Jets game at the Vancouver Canucks has been called one of the most entertaining contests at Rogers Arena this season, partially because there was a large contingent of Jets fans that invaded the place and decided to make their presence known.

Where do these people go to get them made? Surely this practice is frowned upon even in the black market.
