My boys ♥ Tonight is gonna be a very special moment for us. Eddie-Bo and his team are gonna play a 3 minute game in the first intermission at the Redwings game!!! Eddie-Bo literally grew up in this arena, he took his first steps in the family room with a stick in his hand, and Redwings has always been great to the kids and letting them hang out with the team practice days and after games. He knew all the players names and numbers and sang the national anthem song (both American and the Canadian) by the age of two. He LOVES hockey!!! So for us, we couldn’t asked for a better ending at the Joe!! I get teary eyes just thinking about Eddie-Bo entering the ice tonight!!
I think I can say I grew up here too :) I was 24 years old when we moved to Detroit, and I have spent many many hours here. I loved watching Johan play, and I still like coming here, even it’s not the same anymore.
Our amazing babysitter Lisa! It was her birthday wish to get a tour of Joe Louis!! Her birthday was in February… so yesterday we decided it was time to go before the Joe is gone!!
Two more games to play, tonight and tomorrow, and after that we’ll say Farewell to The Joe!! Thanks for all the great memories!!!
