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.

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.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

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!
