Fans Make Human Lightning Bolt

In a lot of cities, as teams leave or arrive at the airport during the playoffs, fans will often show up at the airport to send them off or welcome them home. As Clark wrote earlier, the Lightning had invited fans to meet up today to form a human lightning bolt at the Tampa International Airport.

So this morning, fans dressed in blue and met up at 10:30am for their sendoff for the team as they departed for Boston and Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bruins. The fans were assembled in the parking lot and were visible to the players when they took off.

I really love this, because this is what fan passion during the playoffs look like. The photos look really great and the turnout from the fans made this happen. You can see more photos uploaded by people who attended by going to the event Facebook page.

For all those that did attend, there were lots of prizes to be had like game tickets and signed sticks and pucks. If YOU went and would like to share your photos, feel free to post them in the comments.
