Frozen4sioux Posted April 18, 2019 Share Posted April 18, 2019 Watching the NHL playoffs has been awesome, full crowds, raucous, chanting, loud and involved all game. The crowds in Nashville, Columbus, Long Island, Clagary and Las Vegas have been insane. It looks really really FUN! Its been making me think about our hallowed palace on the prairie, I love the REA, I mean love it, Its home, it fits, I love walking around the smells, the views from all levels its special. But much like a marriage, even if it's love, its not allways fun anymore. The second period seems like the hockey is secondary if not 3rd behind socializing, checking the selfie likes and trading land rentals in the concourse. The new adornments are nice, and the updates to the lighting, the the scoreboard, the boards, the team area its all awesome. But has it made the games more fun? What can we do to get back the fun? Obviously winning exciting games withbexciting players is paramount but as far as off the ice?..... I think it starts and ends with the students and the expectations the arena encases upon the students. I think the band also needs more freedom and MUCH MUCH MUCH less of the A/V blaring music and sound effects during stoppages. Maybe we need a new resurgence of the golden feathers to create lead new chants and traditions, idk... thoughts i guess. What think you? When was the last time the REA was fun? What brings that back?
