Discussion in 'Boston Bruins' started by Fenway, Nov 7, 2018.
Also yellow seats are gone
I spy with my little eye the East Cambridge Jail/courthouse and Sacred Heart Church. You sir have a great view!
I saw some huge cranes in downtown Nashville a couple weeks ago and got an extreme appreciation for just how high up those things are. I got dizzy just looking. You could never pay me enough to go up in one of those things.
Any recent updates on what the inside is looking like? Is the new scoreboard up?
No amount of money exists that would get my *** on that...
This isnt the video I wanted to show. I guess the guys channel was taken down but there is one where a guy climbs one of those cranes in like Dubai and talks and takes a selfie with the guy operating it
This is what Russian kids and other European kids do for fun. Look up the urban climbers. Kids like Mustang
Hate that the Habs have the corner tunnel for visiting teams, and i hate that the Garden will have it now too.
The changes to the concession game are making for some interesting discussions as well.
Hopefully the Garden will at least have room for the back-up goalie on the bench. Always thought that was even more bush league, especially in such a big new building.
At the very least, there should be a rule banning the creation of new corner tunnels unless both teams have them...that's not supposed to be part of the "home ice advantage". I can't say how big of an advantage it is, and it's probably not huge, but...it's just silly. I get that they can't force Molson to reconfigure the Centre Bell, but the Garden shouldn't have reconfigured to make it worse.
Of course, it's all about increasing the seating. IIRC, the Garden was one of the smaller arenas, which is why rows of 14 seats are now rows of 15 seats. Probably also why they moved the entrance to the corner - opens up more seating in the lucrative "center six".
I can’t say how much of an advantage it is either, but there’s no doubt in my mind it’s enough to win a game or two stretched out over a full season.
You get an extra five feet or so in Montreal, plus the tunnel. I imagine that equates to an extra equipment guy or med staff, not to mention the backup goalie who even if he’s not playing he’s still on the team and still part of the teams mental makeup.
You’re probably right about opening up a few more seats down in the center loge though. That’s gotta be an extra few grand per game
New Chicago board
Love that video with Brad driving. They showed it at many games last season.
I just hope I still like my new seats (in section21 ).
Did Jacobs buy the old one?
For the record, I don't know if the new scoreboard is up, but the old one is definitely down. It was taken off in late June - all that was left was a skeleton that held the four screens, and I have no idea if the skeleton can be reused for the new board, but I kinda doubt it. The only other thing I can think of is if they took the four boards down to do repair work...but I'm 99% sure that our inside sources have mentioned that a new scoreboard is on the way.
I'm a little surprised the Bruins haven't been playing up the scoreboard in the "Garden improvements" - it's been 99% all about the Hub area and the new "grand entrance". For me, a scoreboard with "who's currently on ice" info would improve my gameday experience WAY more than a new bar above the 15th row on 301 (Is that even where it is?) or marginally bigger concourses.
I can only imagine the renovations have been a bit rushed, considering that they were expecting two rounds of play - three if we were lucky. That said, I'm sure Uncle JJ has the money to pay for the overtime rush, given that we had a once-in-a-lifetime Game 7 SCF on home ice.
The old yellow seats for sale anywhere?
I... I... don't hate the all black seats as much as I thought I would.
Still, since I won't be going to many (any?) games this year, I'm hoping they replaced the ice plant.
Those seats are ugly.
New board in Washington
And tiny as hell.
My sister says they are smaller than the grandstands at Fenway.
Not to give away your secrets, but that Canon lens is for only one purpose (it rhymes with Tour Play)!
Please tell me it's coming this year, and it's coming to NESN on Xfinity!
