    My GDT spelunking reminded me of something else I was looking for awhile back; The old Coyote howl from America West Arena. You can hear it on goal videos but it's usually a bit drowned out by the commentary/fans.

    So I've been looking for a relatively clean version of it somewhere off and on and haven't been able to find one.

    I'm kind of under the assumption that the team doesn't even have one since during all the throwback games they use the somewhat tepid current howl. Maybe they have it and just don't use it but they use everything else right down to the old CGI so...

    I used to have a WAV file of it back in the day that I pulled from a Coyotes browser theme CD but haven't been able to find it anywhere.

    Anyone around here have a line on something like this?

    That howl was so much better. Good question, Wesley Snipes. I however do not have the file.

    You may be able to find it in an old EA NHL 2002 custom sound pack or something like that

    Until 2012 that was the best game I'd ever attended in person. It was also the only hockey game my father ever went to (he happened to be visiting from Florida), and for the rest of his life he'd always ask me "do they still yell 'Osssss-gooooood'?"

    Personally think the old one sounds like a Coyote getting shot and crying for help, guess its just me

    Then there has never been a more appropriate time to bring it back.

    So I found it.

    I was looking for something else, inspired by the discussion in the OT thread.... and came across the browser CD (along with a sealed Diamondbacks one)

    Behold:


    Unfortunately the quality was a bit dumpy but what do you want from a browser skin cd. But at least it actually exists somewhere now.


    The CD also had a few other gems:





    The hilarious thing? The NeoPlanet browser still works.....

    I'm half tempted to make a Mozilla theme using the graphics :laugh:

    I'm sure 20 years later all those millions of free AOL floppy/CD mailers are still filling up most landfills intact.

    Since AWA did not have a goal horn, it made the "goal howl" with Werewolves the most distinctive in the NHL.
