Who else liked the train horn?

The train horn they used after each goal and to mark end end of the period was neat. I wish they would use it from now on

It was a good idea for this one game.  If we make this a yearly thing or whatever I'd like for us to invest in a big ass hockey horn as opposed to stealing one from Amtrak.  

Only thing that really annoyed me was the walking curly fries.  They reminded me why I'm happy we don't have a mascot.  I realize we have to make money, but wow did we whore out on the advertising this game.

False.  Not only were the Curly Fries awesome, but they were a better goalie than Palmisano.

we don't get an oversized drum playing at the games it won't be too purduey. Does anybody know where I can buy the big chill jersey? I searched everywhere and couldn't find it.

As someone who would like the Big House to keep some of its old school elements, I am afraid that yesterday's advertising may be only the beginning of a gross commercialization.  When DB talks about "maximizing resources," I start to wonder how long it is before the stadium is renamed in favor of a sponsor with deep pockets.

I hope it doesn't happen, but I don't hold any more illusions, either.

Brandon has said before (after the spring game) that advertising will happen for non-football games like The Big Chill or the spring game. I doubt we will see an Arby's takeover like yesterday for a football game, because I imagine the backlash would be quite large.

A buddy of mine calls hockey games for Adrian College, who played on the rink @Michigan Stadium on Dec. 4th.  He blogged this:

Funny moment with 10 seconds left in first period: U of M sports marketing group says "Do we have a horn to end the period? No. OK, have the p.a. announcer make a horn sound." Yep, I did it. Classic.

they would have used a "Bob Uffer horn" ....   honk,  honk,  honk !!!   Would have been just another reference to the past.  Michigan is nothing if not for the History !

Go Blue !
