I'd love to go to this event. I understand the arguments for and against something like this, but I can't say I don't like it.

Typical American. :sleepy:


I don't remember that being addressed in "Gladiator", though, so it's a good question.

This is perfect, get all of the reasonably talented goons in the NHL and have them battle it out in a bruiser hockey game. You bring the great sport of hockey and combine it with the tradition of the gladiator arena and have 15+ fights during the course of the event.

Haven't you seen History of the World Part 1? You call for a piss boy. Of course, in this day and age that might mean something else entirely....
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

This one time, I took my skate off and tried to stab a guy....I'm the only guy to ever do that!

I looked at the pictures and it looks awesome. What's cooler than skating off after a shift and looking up realizing you're playing hockey in the ampithetre that's been standing, what...over 1000 years? I'd get shivers.

Bump from several months ago.  I had totally forgotten about this game, until I suddenly remembered it again today.   :lol:   

 

Anyway, it was played last September over two nights.  So I went online and found some pictures to share.

Now that is Cool! I am convinced now that the New Wings Arena should have a building exterior that resembles this! WIth todays technology they could make the exterior easliy as well as the interior along with the convienences of modern day arena's! Get it done Iltich!

Pure unadulterated win.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

It would make more sense for the Senators to have that arena, with their team name.

Not sure how many came, but I've read the seating capacity is about 7,000.
