Alex von Keudell, director of media relations and broadcasting for the Macon Mayhem, talks about the dasher board in front of the opposing team at the Macon Coliseum that makes the players look like they have women's legs.

Opposing teams of the Macon Mayhem may be surprised when they see their box at the next game in the Macon Coliseum.

The dasher board has an advertisement for Ann Parman Law, and it features several images of women’s legs in skirts which make the players of the opposing team look like they have women’s legs.

“There’ve already been a few shots where it literally looks like that’s their bottom half. It’s hilarious,” said Alex von Keudell, director of media relations and broadcasting for the Macon Mayhem.

Keudell said the board has been up since the Mayhem’s opening game with the Pensacola Ice Flyers.

“When Pensacola got here, that was the first thing they saw,” Keudell said with a laugh. “They knew they had to sit in there. They had no choice.”

Keudell designed the advertisement, but said the idea came from the law firm who paid for it.

For a chance to see the board, Macon Mayhem’s next game is Nov. 10 at 7:35 p.m. Houston Road Church will have a pregame concert in the Macon Centerplex lobby for Faith and Family Night, and Keudell said they encourage people from any faith to come and enjoy the game.

Jeff Carr, head coach of the Knoxville Ice Bears, said that every team has a dasher board, but this one is different.

“We’re going to have to maybe drape ourselves across so we don’t get booed too hard tonight,” Carr said.

James Saxton, a Pensacola Ice Flyers fan, said that the board is nothing new.

“For first timers, ones that’ve never been to a game, it’ll give them a good laugh,” Saxton said. “The older fans that have been around, you don’t even really pay attention ... They’re all done in fun.”

Keudell said Mayhem fans have already made comments about the board on Facebook and seem to love it.

“I think it matches what they need to actually be wearing instead of what they are wearing because they’re garbage, and we’re better because we’re Macon,” said Dalton Radford, a strong supporter of the Macon Mayhem.
