    It is truly a North American game. People down south and on the West coast don't really have the passion and the roots to be interested in the game as much since it is warm and you don't have any nature created skating rinks like you'd see in Minnesota or New York.

    I was born and raised in Buffalo. Always has been a good hockey town and they even had an NBA franchise once before it was moved to San Diego.

    You've got that right. I was in Buffalo once and can see how hockey could be popular there.

    Outdoor games are very special. If it's anything like the last one they had in Canada, the atmosphere is very intimate and personal.

    Leave it to Roscoe.

    Most guys take a girl to a romantic dinner or a play to get the mood right.

    BUT Roscoe tries to get intimate and personal at a bloody hockey game. :pound::nerd2:

    No wonder he never gets any...:lol: Our Cannuckian friends kill me.

    We all have our favorite things that make us want to get intimate. Variety among consenting adults in great.

    :hoops:

    I was thinking the other day, "Gee, I wish Darth Tater posted more".

    After reading this, I want a lobotomy.

    If you insist on going to such an extreme, then the Ludovico technique may be preferable. If you don't like the outcome they can reverse the results.

    How could anybody see what was going on in that game? The fans with the closest seats were 40 yards away at ground level. That is a terrible view.

    They would have been better off putting it in sideways by the endzone and erecting temporary bleachers on the empty side. They they could have had 30,000 and charged more $.

    It's all a fun of being there. Who needs to see anything? You have enough beers and everything is great.
    On the other note, it is difficult to see the puck while at the game if you sit far, I do agree it is nearly impossible to see it sitting as far away as some people were at the stadium.

    It just goes to show you...a person doesn't have to post often to still get his job done effectively! :pound:;)


    On the game...I think it would have been awesome to see it.

    I think the WDFN mentioned today that the Red Wings would like to host an out door hockey game next year possibly at the BIG House in Ann Arbor. Seems like Tiger stadium would be more intimate if is still standing next year?? Didn't it hold about 55,000?

    I don't think that the locker rooms are functioning any longer and a lot of the seats and stuff are gone, auctioned off.

    I think that the Big House makes a lot more sense.
