Well, it was the old adage - they bit off a little more than they could chew - that haunted the villains in the end & in dealing with Mac. ohmy.gif

And the getting there for "opening faceoff or 'puck drop' is the endearing, anxiety ridden incentive & this script implementation is undoubtedly influenced/suggested by RDA. When you go to a hockey game, it's sacrilege to miss the opening faceoff - an unwritten rule, yet written in stone to get there on time. The home city on game night is full of electric energy, the bars, restaurants are full to the rafters - & as a fan, your whole day revolves around getting to the rink in time. I'm not saying that this is not the same MO for soccer, football, baseball, or basketball - I'm just telling it like it is for this sport.

I think we need a MacGyverOnline meetup - in Minnesota - in February - -15 degrees - for a Wild game - and to feel the energy. enjoy the atmosphere, and to see how vital it is to get to the game on time and for the opening draw! biggrin.gif

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man's determination.

Whether you think you can or you can't .... you're probably right!

Wow! Some initial good interest here. Maybe, just maybe ..... an Oilers/Kings game in LA would be the real 'MacGyver Episode Experience' ticket!? J A meetup in LA with a pre-game tour of some of the old MacGyver sets in and around LA, & with a busy scheduled day and all culminating with an anxiety/adrenaline filled dash to the Kings/Oilers game - just like within the episode - would be ideal. And, surely, if there was ever an impromptu venue that RDA might attend a MacGyver fan base .... it would surely be at his most beloved LA Kings' game!!!! Of course we could all 'warm up' on non-alcoholic eggnog -- as per Mac's experiment in the opening gambit. biggrin.gif

Poor Mac, what with the anniversary of the accident being December 14th and his mother dying around Christmas, December must have been tough.

Damn, I love this episode so much! It's my second favorite! I love the look on MacGyver's face when Victoria kicks herself straight out of the window!

Does anybody know what had happened to MacGyver's right little finger? (he also had a plaster on his right arm in two first season episodes. Bit of a dangerous job.

I saw an interview with RDA and he told what happened to his pinky finger. He cut it with his SAK when cutting the top off of the Cadillac in "Three For The Road" and had to get stitches. If you look closely when he is cutting into the back seat of the car you can see the bandage.

I have a pretty nice scar on my arm from my SAK. I had the scissors open and laid the knife down. I carelessly shifted my arm right into the point on the end of the scissor blade. The blade embedded itself about 1/4 inch deep in my arm. Ouch

sad.gif It's amazing how sharp these knives are, especially when what you are cutting isn't intentional.

I think this episode is excellent, except once they realized they were locked in and people had guns, why wouldn't they pull the fire alarm?!? Or they needed a quick scene where they tried and it was disconnected, like when Mac tried the phone.

Harry is always enjoyable to watch, great chemistry with Mac. I like Harry flashbacks even though the wavy screen effect got a little taxing lol.

Because the bad guys would be looking for them. Now they had somewhat of an advantage.

If you pull an alarm the whole building goes off, the baddies would have cleared out pretty fast. The bad guys were already looking for them and there was no bomb in play yet as far as they knew.

Of course I've seen Die Hard tongue.gif I'm just saying pulling the fire alarm was an obvious move to get help, that wasn't explored, and should have been addressed..

The Oilers are in LA again tonight to play the Kings! Times have changed a bit since Mac and Harry's days.
Gretzky is in the building but as a spectator not a player. RDA may well be there as well tonight -since he
is a big fan of the home team.

Apparently Gretzky got refused at the gate last night. The Staples Center security check didn't recognize him the legend and even though his statue was standing about 100ft behind the entryway. Harry just rolled over in his grave .. surprise.gif

So there's a couple of security guards looking for a new job today?

Apparently, they smoothed it over by saying that he/she "gatekeeper" usually only works the Laker games . and thus not a big hockey fan. hmm.bmp c'est la vie
