If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
I can't imagine how there are any really good seats for that game.All I can figure is folks will say, "Ya hadda be there!""Eh?"
I wouldn't go, even if I still lived in Dee-troit. There's the weather (never good on New years Day in Michigan), the price o' beer (MUCH cheaper at my house), the crowds ('nuff said, eh?), and as you said: the game itself (I'll have replays and will actually SEE all the goals). Yup... it's the ultimate "ya hadda be there" thing.
I wasn't gonna mention the weather.
I sat in that stadium 50 plus years ago. Several times less than 1/2 full. A few times in wind driven snow.
I've never been, Jim... except on teevee.
The Kings and Ducks are playing in Dodger Stadium on January 25. Tickets are not cheap at all.........................................
Hockey in Dodger Stadium just seems wrong, somehow. . .;)
@Glenn: I GOTTA agree with Craig. ;-)
I did go see my Spartans get mashed at th' Big House, many-many years ago. But we've been the ones doin' the mashing just lately. Just sayin'. . .We had a MSU-UM hockey game at Spartan Stadium several years back. When you consider that front-row seats at the stadium might be farther from the ice than the nose-bleeds at Joe Louis. . . yeah, it's pretty much just a hadda-be-there thing. 'Cuz the Big House in January just doesn't seem all that appealing.Altho, now as I think on it, a Red Wings game is about the best use I can think of fer that place. They usually waste it on the funny-helmet blue-corn football guys. . .;)
When you consider that front-row seats at the stadium might be farther from the ice than...Excellent point. When I'm in proselytizing mode I ALWAYS tell newbies to go see a game live, coz even the cheap seats at any given arena are usually good seats... and MUCH better than watching a game on teevee. Not this time, however. It makes me wonder how the people in the cheap seats at Michigan Stadium will even know where the puck is half the time.As for football... I USED to come down on the side o' Big Blue back when I lived in Dee-troit, except when they played ND. You really could NOT be ambivalent on MSU - UoM game days -- you HAD to choose. These days I just find the game to be interesting, as all rivalries are. Speaking o' rivalries... didja watch the Ducks - Beavers last night? THAT was a game!
"The Kings and Ducks are HOPING playing in Dodger Stadium on January 25." Fixed that for ya ORPO. No Charge...LGRW !!!!!(Buck, did you see the Command Master Chief is putting away his pen? A2Y is sunsetting....)
I did NOT see that, Rummy. I thought it could be likely, given the Chief's new job, but I sure hate to see it.
Check this out, Buck, we've got our very own version her in lil' ole Rochacha -http://www.milb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20130813&content_id=56836320&fext=.jsp&vkey=news_t534&sid=t534Might check out the 'Merks game or even a high school matchup. Wann'a go to the RIT but my damn sis/bro in law are having their Xmas party that night. Too bad too he's an Alumni...We'll see...tim
Wow! That's a pretty full slate of events and damned cool, too. I hope the WX cooperates for all those events, but Ra-cha-cha in December? That'll be a crap shoot.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
