I get a lot of questions about whether it’s OK to bring an iPad to a game. Popular opinion says fuck no!, but I disagree. It’s fine. Here’s why: It’s hardly different than a phone nowadays. Plus you look signifcantly less weird with an iPad – especially if you’re a woman or Sidney Crosby and can carry one in your purse – than carrying one of those silly Galaxy Notes. Let’s face it, people use iPads for all sorts of reasons. In theory you could be watching other games on it or using Twitter to converse with other fans. I sometimes take mine to the Iron Abbey on the weekends to watch EPL games that aren’t on the main TVs. So I get it. Wouldn’t recommend it, but I get it. What you can’t do, however, is take pictures with the thing. If you use your iPad to take pictures in public, you’re an idiot. Your phone has a better camera if you’ve upgraded since Steve Jobs died. And it’s smaller. You might get a better view on your bigger, heavier, bulkier, sillier looking iPad, but you’re taking a worse picture. Every time. Don’t do that. Also: don’t stalk people with blocked Facebook profiles, like this woman.

    I say fuck no. First of all, you’re asking for it to get broken or stolen. Not to mention it is distracting as hell, and I’ve seen plenty of idiots take pictures at games with this shit – it completely blocks the view of people behind you. If you pay money to go to a game, then be present at the game or don’t fucking bother. Leave the iPad home.

    Either comment loudly in her ear about what’s on the screen, or accidentally spill beer on it. Either way point gets made.

    she was also smoking out of a vaporizer the whole game

      holy shit, no way! what a horrible, despicable human being! must have been such a threat to everyone around her. all the fans must have been infuriated. she should just stick to alcohol and be a little more humane!

      And she’s a fatty too. The ultimate triumverate of annoying.

    Oh I know exactly who that dope is. I’ve bought tix from stubhub in the section next to her. Trust me this is better than hearing her yell nonsense all game in her annoying as hell voice.

    probably typical white trash from Mayfair. Prob got the iPad off craigslist or stole it

    Totally acceptable if you are in that 1%. If that shit gets stolen or broken YOU BUY A NEW ONE! But 99% of the time it’s pretty lame.

    Really? One of the acceptable reasons could be “you’re watching other games?” If you’re interested in watching other games why the fuck would you be at the game that you’ve presumably paid for a ticket to attend? If you really can’t miss out on other stuff why are you there? Why weren’t you at home in front of your TV? Maybe she can check stuff in intermissions but it looks like she’s just Facebook stalking while the game is going on. Total violation.

      Agree. It’s one thing to take it to the Iron Abbey, but not to a game.

  • Odiforus87 March 3, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    Galaxy note is fantastic fyi.

  • Manfred von Richthofen March 3, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    The Iron Abbey is an LFC supporter bar. Go away spuds scum

      A good reason to be an Everton fan.

    In other more important news,how about Lebron James scoring 61pts.

    Tony Bruno has to be pretty damn excited about Bron Bron single-handedly beating the Bobcats.

    My buddy took one in earlier this year. He had it in his backpack although he didn’t use it. And come to think of it, security didn’t even check his backpack.
