  • Farewell to The Joe

    It’s the end of an era in Detroit. The Detroit Red Wings have played their final game at Joe Louis Arena. It’s time to get a Farewell Season ‘Joe’ Banner before they're gone. The Red Wings said goodbye with a 4 to 1 victory over the New Jersey Devils. With any luck, this end will also be a fresh start for a struggling team. The Wings are moving on to what will hopefully be a turn-around season next year at Little Caesars Arena. They won’t be alone in their new home or endeavors, however.

    The Detroit Pistons are going to share Little Caesars Arena with the Red Wings, making Detroit the only city in America that houses all four of its professional teams (Lions, Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings) in a central location. The four teams have not been in downtown Detroit collectively since 1974, when the Lions left for the Pontiac Silverdome. The Pistons left shortly after, in 1978, for Pontiac as well. Bringing all four teams together, downtown, is a major step in revitalizing a city once on the brink of failure. We can all hope that this new era will help fuel the changes we are already witnessing in Detroit.

    On a side note, Henrik Zetterberg played his 1000th game as a Detroit Red Wing, and in the NHL, on the same day that the Red Wings played their farewell game. Zetterberg joins the ranks of other great Detroit Red Wings like Tomas Holmstrom, Alex Delvecchio, Steve Yzerman, and of course Gordie Howe; just to name a few. He also is now added to the list of 305 other NHL players who have played 1000 games, or more. There isn’t a much better way to say Farewell to the Joe, except by preparing for next season with our Detroit Red Wings apparel and gear.
