Axel at the Joe Louis

Here is my son Axel and I enjoying his first visit to Joe Louis Arena. His faced was filled with joy the as we spent an hour or so touring around. He got to see the team practice, skate on the ice (in my arms), touch the sticks on the stick rack and best of all sit in my stall that so many legendary Red Wing players have hung their gear in after many victories. I can't put my finger on what it is about the Joe Louis Arena. There is a energy about it. It's as though all the past players photo's hanging in the dressing room are looking over you saying is that all you've got. There is a sense of accoutability that pulses throughout the vacinity.  Its  Photo credit: www.courtneyparrie.com
