Red Wing Pre-Game Traditions

Red Wings have an effective arrsenal of pre-game moments to generate pre-game hype. Plus their goal horn story and links to more sports traditions.

Last Weekend I make a trip to Toledo and Detroit, catching the Walleye, Pistons and Red Wings.  With these strong productions fresh in my mind I will feature Water Cooler Moments from these teams this week.

On to the Red Wings after a great time in Toledo.

We love a good tradition and the Wings fly into each game with a good one:

A local celebrity (here Lions’ player Aidan Hutchinson) pulls the chain to blow the horn and fire up the Red Wings faithful.  It’s a great moment that fans really reacted to,

And that’s not the only tradition.  Fans also pass the flag in the lower bowl of the arena at the start of the pre-game in a great visual tradition.

That’s not the only horn in Detroit, there has been an evolving story surrounding the Goal Horn since they moved from Cobo Hall.  You can catch that story here.
