Game 3 in Detroit

After failing to see a Wings’ game for the first 22 years of my life, tomorrow I am going to my fourth Wings’ in the past year…and I must say, I can’t wait for the Joe Louis Arena atmosphere.

First of all, the tickets were only $56….upper bowl..but pretty good for playoffs. Beat that MLSE. Secondly, the feel of JLA is just awesome; you actually feel like you’re in an arena with some real history. The smell, the murals, the posters, the beer, and yes…the statues of Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay in the front lobby.

Having only been to ACC, Copps and HSBC, I can’t say I’m an expert on arenas in the professional hockey; but I can’t see many beating the experience you get at Joe Louis Arena.
