  1. LOL! There was a McDonald's ad on the boards behind them advertising the return of the McRib. Likely only in Florida though.
  2. She likely isn't...but the McRib is back!!
  3. The Palace was actually renovated for around $40 million over the past few years after Gores bought the Pistons & PSE. Also, the Palace was built using 100% of Davidson's money, the taxpayers paid zero dollars for it, so it was technically their own arena. It makes perfect sense to have the team back in Detroit proper. Also, I question the whole ice quality issue with shared facilities. With the ice equipment & technology that's out there now, it is a lot better to maintain good ice. For example, LA shares with both the Lakers & Clippers, plus the Staples Center has a lot of other events going on throughout the year. Staples Center is pretty much busy year round. I've never really heard of any major issues with ice quality there. The only one that I usually hear about is Madison Square Garden in New York. They recently spent a lot to renovate there, so it's possible they upgraded their ice making facilities.
  4. Aren't they supposed to have a Farewell to the Joe patch on the jerseys?
  5. Typically, only a handful of tickets will be released on these pre-sales. I'm sure that if you check again on Monday morning when they go on sale for everyone, there will be a large number of tickets available for all games. Well, except for the final game on April 9th.
  6. The thought is is that the mother planted the evidence bag between her front doors. The girl had her belongings returned to her in the bag & for some reason, the mother held onto the bag.
  7. It's likely the evidence bag that held the accuser's personal belongings (cell phone, clothes, etc). The girl likely had items returned to her after they were processed & deemed not necessary in the investigation. That would probably explain why the bag had the examining nurse's name on it.
  8. Does this mean that they will be building a statue of him for the new arena? Or, are they going to name the new arena after him?
  9. The article from Crain's Detroit Business states that the new arena will seat about 20,000. http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article/20140720/NEWS03/140719845/detroit-rink-city-ilitches-grand-plan-to-supersize-the#
  10. I had heard as well that the arena was going to seat about 18,000, but the article states that it's going to be more than 20,000. I wonder who is correct.
  11. According to Ticketmaster, there are still some tickets available through the box office. They are the seats showing in blue on the map. Just zoom in on the upper bowl sections (the red seats are secondary market). http://www.ticketmaster.com/detroit-red-wings-vs-colorado-avalanche-detroit-michigan-03-06-2014/event/08004AFFD5C4897B?artistid=805938&majorcatid=10004&minorcatid=9&tm_link=artist_msg-1_08004AFFD5C4897B
  12. Yes, that's correct. I bought my tickets to the WC back in October when Ticketmaster released additional ones. I figured I might get the commemorative ones because there was no print at home option & they were being sent around the same time (early December) as all the other ones. Had I purchased them through one of the Wings sales with the special password, I would have got commemorative tickets. I guess that's what I get for being indecisive!! I probably should have kept my order from last year. I'll just have to check eBay after the first of the year to get one from someone. I did purchase my Alumni game tickets from the Wings sale & got the commemorative tickets. No, the tickets are only good for one of the days of the GLI. I remember when I purchased the WC tickets through the sale last year (for the game that wasn't played), you had to select one of the days of the GLI. They were never supposed to be good for both days.
  13. I wouldn't doubt it concerning some lots around there charging $50.00 to park there. Pioneer High School charges that for autos for U of M Football games. If you're going to the game, there are plenty of areas where one can park on the street for no charge. When I have gone to U of M football games I usually park in one of the neighborhoods off of W Stadium Blvd, west of Michigan Stadium. Ticketmaster did not have a "print at home" option for the tickets that went on sale in October. I just received mine today from UPS & they are just the regular boring Ticketmaster hard tickets, not the fancy ones that were sold during the team's pre-sales (like drumnj's tickets).
  14. No, unless they sold out of everything they had, they likely will have more at 10am tomorrow. But you should be on there first thing to try to get some. For example (and I know this is different), the last time they played the Leafs at home, I didn't find out about the pre-sale until late that night & that game was already showing as sold out. However, when I checked the next morning at the start of the public sale I was able to get tickets to the game.
