How Would You Improve the Arena Game Experience?

Recommended Posts

Celebrate goals by putting video on the jumbotron of the boxing chick who holds the cardboard sign walking around the ring and photoshop out 'Round' for 'Goal'.

Ya'll can keep yer fruity Zimas and Cosmopolitans.  I'd like to have a nice Black and Tan poured at the arena.

I highly endorse this beverage choice.

1. Get rid of the DJ. 

2. Get rid of the DJ.

3. Get rid of the DJ.

 

Other ideas?

 

By DJ do you mean stadium announcer?  I would vote for that.  and the DJ too.

It's quiet today, so might as well...

 

Next up, the importance of Canesvision.

Why have we decided not to spend nearly the $ anymore for the Canesvision production pieces?  

Invest in it!   It is a video age.  People enjoy it.  Kids love it.


Things that have been done that absolutely work:

 

Recently:
1. The Canes kid art (players guess who they drew)  This was a great bit.

2. Highlights from other NHL games in progress

 

Past:
2. Stormy bits -
    a) Stormy beats up opposing fan (cleverly of course)
    b - Stormy cancels date when he realizes she's a Caps fan
    c)  Stormy does X to team Y (doesn't matter too much what it is, just make it funny)

3.  Sock puppets - another of our unique signature bits.  Always a hit
4.  The Storminator (Stormy Voltron) striding through enemy cities wreaking havoc

5.  Any hurricane (weather) footage interspersed with Canes highlights
6. Specific slams on opposing cities/teams
    a) To Hell with the Devil (my fave)
    b- Quint shooting Jaws (San Jose)
    c) others - don't remember them right now
7. General harassment of the player in the penalty box

8.  There are many others, and should be new ones all the time.  

 

Don't underestimate the pregame psych-up video.  Sure, there is nobody there that early now, but it will change when the success rolls in.

 

Invest in it.

Always likes the Storminator.

Is Mike Maniscalco the "current arena guy?" I think he just does interviews and a game summary at the second intermission. If the "arena guy" is the last one I remember, I think he is the same one who replaced Amber Jaye. If so, I'll take Ron the Ref back over him all day long. Bringing back Amber Jaye would be a close second.

I was referring to the arena PA announcer, my bad.  Ron the ref was the best "Arena Guy"

Better, more healthy food, and some vegan/vegetarian choices. Black and Tan good also to complement/neutralize the former( Ms. Kajun) request?

They won't do it.   "Bistro 314" or whatever they called it was closed most of the time last year.  Even on crowded games it was the best place to get a soft drink.  No lines.  Ever.

 

People want junk crap when they go to the game.  It is un-American to consume less than 2,000 kcal at a game.

I regret to inform the constituency that if the Caniac Carnival is any indication... DJ Scratch 'n Sniff is still around.  He is up there spinning as I type.
