Retractable Roofs and You
You’re probably not capable of handling watching three FULL periods of hockey out in the freezing outdoorish hell that people sometimes refer to as a "Michigan Winter". You probably can’t accept that the only reasonable way to justify tearing down the Temple of Joe Louis is to revolutionize the way hockey is played and watched live. It’s not your fault that you can’t see how this is the only way to stop the bastardization of outdoor hockey that has become the norm of the NHL.
You should be handed a medal for bravery for pointing out that Michigan’s Winters’ tend to fluctuate which could adversely affect the condition of the ice. I honestly was dumb enough to think that engineers and architects using modern advances in technology would be able to create a sporting arena that could somehow open itself to the elements from time to time.
I must have been an idiot to think that Detroit Michigan should have a professional hockey team that is utilizing and benefiting from this shitty weather. I mean it works for the Packers, but what the fuck is a Packer????
I understand that you’re not ready to accept that it’d be easy to have only one outdoor game a week on a weekend. I know what you’re thinking, and no you don’t have to go to the legendary tailgate/pregame that will be the new entertainment district downtown. I mean what’s the point when there’s a Post Bar across the street from the Palace. I get that you might think that Canadian’s have a shot in hell at out wintering our Swedes. Who can blame you when you never had a chance to learn that Zetterberg chopped more wood today than Sidney Crosby has in his entire pencil pushin life....
There is no good reason not to do this because the roof is retractable. Made in Detroit.
