In Topic: Naming the New Arena

Hot-N'-Ready Arena, haha.

I really wouldn't be surprised at all though if they don't take the corporate sponsor cash and call the arena something Olympia related.

"New Olympia Center" or something classy.

Then of course make back some of that money with tons of advertising inside of the complex and also having corporate sponsors for goal announcements, power plays, etc. Probably ads in front of the urinals too. The abundant supply of urinals we've all been dreaming of.

Purchase information on the Lithograph has been posted, but they aren't very affordable.

Insane prices, but it's definitely a nice collection of signatures.

$5,000-$7,500 depending on the print.

Unframed too, which is pretty bogus. A professional frame job would bump the cost up another 200-300 bucks if you wanna frame it after you get it, which is pocket change compared to the price you'd pay for the lithograph anyways.

If they had an unsigned version that an average fan could acquire for like $50, I would get one to collect signatures on for sure.

It's "tax deductible" but I don't have a clue how it goes with claiming a big charitable purchase like this.

Pretty awesome though.


In Topic: Getting a captain's C stitched

09 February 2014 - 05:51 PM

It depends if you mean the jersey came with no A or C at all, or if it currently has the "A" and you want to switch it with the "C".

Usually the lettering is heat pressed on and then sewn, leaving glue marks or an outline if its removed. The parts that the "C" wont cover will likely be visible even if its removed professionally.

If it has the "A", I would just keep it like that, but if it doesn't, or if you still want the "C" on it, then there should be a closer spot that can do that for you. Most sports shops that sell legit jerseys can do it, I know SportsK does mail ins, but that would cost way too much just for the C patch.

Fanatic U is a good spot with a few local stores, including one in Novi. I know they customize Wings jerseys, so they should be able to do just the C for a decent price and you wont have to mail it anywhere.

I seen this too.

They mentioned it was being made by the Alumni Association I believe, so it should also be available after the Winter Classic festivities too, possibly available for charitable donations or something at the regular alumni games they do at small rinks.

It would be an amazing thing to collect autographs on too. I wanna get my hands on one.

I just checked the official alumni site and their store is currently down, so I emailed them. Hopefully I get a word back.

In Topic: Passport to visit Windsor?

I wanna say the passport thing started in 2010.

In Michigan you can get an enhanced license/id (costs around 40 bucks) and it works the same as a passport for ground travel between US/Canada and US/Mexico.

I'm not sure if they're only sold in border states, but if you can get one it would be the fastest/cheapest option.

Everyone you're with will need one though.

Alternately you're allowed into Canada without a passport or enhanced license but need it to get back into the US, so if you don't mind being detained for a few hours by border patrol, they'll probably let you go once they figure out you aren't a terrorist or drug mule.  :)

Edit: The last time being in Ontario without a passport for me was May 2009 while camping with some people. We hit the bar in town to catch the Wings series against Chicago that weekend. It was a yearly thing and then by the next year we weren't able to do it because not everyone could cross. Either way, it's understandable why the law kicked in, but its still dumb. Its really no more secure than just needing a current ID and birth certificate.
