Please, I beg of everyone with this petition, let Mr. Howe pass and let the family move on before you put the Illitch family in the uncomfortable position of probably NOT changing the name of the arena, especially since the Gordie Howe bridge is being built.
I love Gordie Howe and the Red Wings as much as life itself but don't use his passing to pressure the owners right now and make them say something unpopular.
Murdering an endangered animal (captive mountain gorilla) because someone cannot watch their kid is not bad enough.
Now the zoo is being sued - there's a shocker - for negligence.
I give up.
As a parent - I couldn't agree more Loo.
My wife took my 3 lil'guys to the Milwaukee County Zoo this past Saturday...Needless to say there were quite a few 'animals' with children of the human variety...As in - some people shouldn't be allowed to breed.
