Thursday January 25th at The Detroit Red Wings

The Red Wings are set to open up their brand new stadium, Little Caesars Arena, this fall.  Many of us will miss making the trip to see the Blackhawks play the Red Wings at the Joe Louis Arena because the building had so much history.  It was like decades had gone by and nothing had changed.  “The Joe” was a favorite stadium to play in by many NHL players, but the Red Wings are moving on.  They will be sharing the new stadium with the Pistons who have moved out of The Palace at Auburn Hills.

I’m not sure what to expect out of this new stadium but I did read that there are some pretty cool features about it like these gondola seats.

I know the Red Wings are rebuilding and the rivalry between them and the Hawks won’t ever be the same again, but we only get one chance a year to yell “Detroit Sucks.”  Why not make it two?
