I would love to be able to post photographs from the last couple of games at the Giant Center but like I mentioned in a recent post the Giant Center will no longer allow cameras into the building. If it has a detachable lens or the lens on a point and shoot sticks out further than a credit card the cameras are banned. This is after allowing fans to bring cameras into the arena for years with the stipulation that we do not sell photos. I know myself and most fans stuck to that, but apparently a few decided to sell on eBay. Instead of going after those individuals they punished everyone. Funny thing is the person that was doing it got press credentials after the rule change and is still doing it. They even allow Greg Mace's young son to bring in his camera. We fans and season ticket holders pay allot of money each year to enjoy our team, it is a shame that management has to give us the shaft. Enough of the negatives for now, onto the game.
This video was taken with my phone at Sunday nights game four of the Calder Cup finals. The Bears won the game 2-1 to take a commanding three games to one advantage. For the first time in almost 30 years we get a chance to see our team have a chance to win the cup in front of the home crowd. The last two games have been sell outs and the fans have been crazy. This was taken in the last few seconds of the game, it gives you a chance to see how excited and loud the fans are and how much the team is enjoying their success. Tonight it is back to the Giant Center for game five and hopefully a chance to watch our team lift the cup and set a record for 10 titles in their history.
Hey Giant Center you constantly say you have the best fans in the AHL and we keep setting records for attendance, now how about treating us like you appreciate us. Remember without the fans you are nothing, WE PAY THE BILLS FOR YOU.
B-E-A-R-S, WOOOOOOOOO, GO BEARS!!
