I was thinking that a new arena is right around the corner, and one day the Joe Louis will be but a memory.

Then I was thinking that there is at least one thing that I hope goes with us to the new arena.

Mine is the goal horn. I love it. It give me chills everytime I hear it. I have an mp3 of it. I pray to the hockey gods that they keep the same goal horn.

What else do you love about the Joe that you hope they carry over to the new arena. I bet no one will say the men's urinals!

I would say....not much. I can list a few I DO NOT want to follow...

Karen Newman

Budd Lynch

DJ

Scoreboard

Sh!tty Seats (not enough room)

Amway

I do like the horn too! But they also need to stop all the personal goal scoring music AND the music that "means something" like the Billy Joel 1..2..3..4, I cannot stand it personally. Just blast the f'ing horn and play a song like maybe go back to EMF's Unbelievable or Gary Glitter's Rock N' Roll Part 2. I have always wished for Welcome to the Jungle when the starting lineups skate out on the ice too. Or someting by Ministry, like NWO or Just On Fix or Jesus Built My HotRod...That would get the NEW place rockin!

No on EMF because it's not 1990 and the song sucked back then too & no on Gary Glitter because it's not 1972 & personally, I think it would be a good thing to keep all association with kiddie porn out of the new arena. Parents, keep this guy away from the young 'uns:

I say keep the personalized goal songs for players but just update them a bit. I've always been disappointed they never busted out Tool's song 'Hooker with a Penis' as Hudler's goal song.

My favorite thing about the Joe is that it's not named after some s***ty corporation. I know the new one will be, but I really loved the fact that the Joe was named after something relevant to Detroit's sporting history.

Budd Lynch

What on Earth could you possibly have against Budd Lynch? The guy has been a Wing for 63 years, is in the Hall of Fame, and loves hockey more than probably everyone on this board, combined. The guy is an absolute legend, and familiar voice to those who have been Wings fans for years. Besides, he's just the PA announcer, it's not like Erich Freiny is going to make any difference.

But don't worry, at 94, he'll probably be gone before a new stadium is built anyway.

Lynch's voice is a staple ....just like hearing Journey and screaming South Detroit at the right time when at the game.

Hearing "last minute of play in the period" during the playoffs and Wings winning is the cat's meow.(Granted we didn't hear it enough this year...lol)

I hope they record that and play it as it would keep the bridge between the 1950's teams to today's Wings. Once again tradition reigns supreme in Hockeytown

No to Karen Newman???? I just spit cereal all over my keyboard reading that...

to be honest, it's painful when she hits that note on "free."

but she is fun to look at.

I have a few things I would like to see carry over, but I agree with you here. I love the fact its not named after some fortune 500 company or some bulls***. I think naming an arena should be dedicated to someone or something that has meaning to the city or team or what not.

"Without further ado Mike Illitch and co. are happy to anounce the Detroit Red Wings will be now be playing in a new home; I present you AMWAY ARENA!!!"

TOTAL FAIL, I can see it now... :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

See my issue with anything pizza related is that in Michigan probably ten years back or so there was a place called Little Caesar's Caesar Land/Palace or something like that. It was a place for kids to play, kind of like a discovery zone or Chucky Cheese or what have you. So if they named it something along those lines that is all I would think of. :huh:

I don't think it would be Little Caesar anything...the whole idea of selling the name is to make money, not spend your own money on the name. Iltich would make no money by buying the naming rights from himself...

I like these:

Delta Centre

Meijer Gardens

Cadillac Centre

PNC Place

It was called Caesar Land and it was fantastic. A friend of mine had his 9th or 10th birthday there....it was awesome. It was the Little Caesar equivalent of Discovery Zone/Chuck E Cheese but way cooler...no Simpsons Arcade but still great none the less. Mr. I, being the great owner that he is, is entitled to that choice. Would you rather have new place called the Call Sam Arena??? Come to think of it, as long as Richard is on the photo, I could care less.

Get rid of the goal horn, it's too boring. We need something deep that annoys opposing fans like the hawks predators stars and ducks. Get rid of Karen Newman, she has always sounded awful and isn't Attractive as she thinks she is by the way she dresses. The "new" pa announcer who handles most of the announcements must go too, his voice tone is too high pitched for the job.

And for the love of god. Hey Hey Hockeytown needs to be either refreshed or retired. It makes me wanna sit down instead of cheer and be loud.

Without Budd Lynch we wouldn't have anymore Budd Lynch goals, oh yeah... :hehe:

OP, I'd like a copy of the goal horn mp3 to load onto NHL 12; although I don't remember if they let you set audio for goals or not.
