Heartbroken, here, even though he was 95. He was a legend... and should have gone out, watching his beloved Wings. RIP, Budd. :innocent:

More sad news.... 2012 continues to be a year that just totally sucks.

Budd's voice will be missed.

RIP Budd. A staple of the experience at Joe Louis Arena. A legend of the Red Wings organization.

Nothing but bad news since the playoffs ended for our team.

A fine gentleman. He will be missed. Condolences to his family and friends.

Money on the board!  Current total: $2

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

R.I.P. Budd. Thanks for the memories.

I wish we could have gotten you a few more games to help call.

From time to time people around here argue about who should go up in the rafters next. Well, I know who I would put up there next. :shout: The Wings need to use a tape of him the final minute of every period as well.

Not only older than the Red Wings, he was older than the Cougars!

I'm sorry he's gone, but if I live half the life he did I'm gonna be pretty happy.

We should celebrate the great life that he had, not grief for the death of his.

I met him once at Traverse City. A sweet and lovely soul. My life is a little better for having him a part of it.

Thank you, Mr. Lynch for all that you did and all that you gave us; in particular, your service during World War Two.

I think Ken Kal said it best (from Khan/Mlive, emphasis mine)...

Red Wings radio play-by-play man Ken Kal called Lynch a legend in broadcasting, a great ambassador for the Red Wings and a fatherly figure to many.

“He was to Red Wings hockey what Ernie Harwell was to Tigers baseball,'' Kal said. “He never said a bad word about anybody. He was a genuine person.

Years ago, I read a story about a recent veteran who had to have an arm amputated. He ended up being contacted by Budd who gave him all kinds of advice, on how to do day-to-day things like buttoning shirts/sleeves, ironing, etc, as well as all kinds of humorous outlooks on his new way of life. It was very a touching read, and I wish I could find it again.

You know how when one person of an old couple dies, then the other dies a little while later of a "broken heart". I think that is what happened here. Budd was old but hockey kept him alive. Bettman and company took that away from him and us.

I agree they should use a taped "One minute left in the period" at the end of the game every game. And I am sure that there will be a jersey in the rafters if we even see another season.

Rip Budd!
