Sure, there's some basketball game for some team to kick off some important season for a franchise turning it all around, and yes they'll wear their new blue road uniforms for the first time, and yeah, it's Halloween and Dikembe Mutombo and Moses Malone will be two more totally awesome centers in the Wells Fargo Center tonight who can't play, BUT OMG THE WORLD'S LARGEST T-SHIRT LAUNCHER!

[UPDATE: We've got really bad video of the gun in action last night here!]

From the Sixers release:

On
opening night, the Sixers will unveil Big Bella, the world’s largest
T-shirt launcher that fires 100 tees in just 60 seconds.
Big Bella weighs 600 pounds and, when firing T-shirts into the upper
reaches of the Wells Fargo Center, can be up to 10 feet high. The team
commissioned the creation of Big Bella from FX in Motion, an
entertainment elements company out of New Berlin, Wisc.
The team will also drop T-shirts, free game tickets and other
promotional items from the rafters of the Wells Fargo Center down to
fans below in a new themed “Sixers Parachute Drop.”

And fire. There will also be fire.

UPDATE: OMG LOOK AT THE PHOTO OF THAT THING!
