I can't help but wonder is for some reason Mr I doesn't make it to see the Grand Opening that it would very appropriate to name it after him..... The Illitch Centre of Entertainment Arena sounds nice....


or affectionately the The I.C.E Arena...

I'm resigned to a new arena, but I'm not thrilled with their choice of funding by any means. It will take forever to recoup that money for the education system, which needs it far more than Mr. I does.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

:clap: - wonderful idea...

I too hope this gets underway sooner than later; as I mentioned in another post - Mr Ilitch isn't a spring chicken.

I agree with this, I would rather see it called the all-state centre or something then take more money from the already desperate education fund. The education system is already in shambles.

What's this...state funding for a new arena and a new bridge linking Windsor and Detroit?

This explains why I couldn't find a "2013 Mayan Calendar" at calendars dot com.

I know many of you have seen this before, but I've redone the Website and cleaned up the drawings. This is the last time I'm going to do it, but I wanted to get them as nice as I could. Here are a couple pics, but visit http://www.newolympia.blogspot.com to see the new web site.

There is one small problem which Mayor Bing says can and will be "cleared up" once the "books" are scrutinized.

I think it's interesting that the funds were approved for this when we also recently found out that Mr. Illitch owes $70 million to the city.
