Adding "pizzaz!" to SBP
 
Another thread got me thinking.

Tampa Bay has Tesla coils to go along with their new scoreboard.
CBJ has a cannon.


What could Ottawa add to give the fans a little extra experience when going to SBP?

Please no linking the Spartan.:shakehead

Leafs suck and Alfie chants


Or how about a Sens Museum, that would be sick. It could pay homage to the original and modern Senators, and it would be a way to pay homage to guys that were a significant part of the Sens, but won't have their number retired/honoured due to a short(ish) time with the team (Chara, Hossa, Havlat etc.)

Well, we have a spartan as our logo, so we can really only do something spartan related.

Alfie chants are awesome though. I'm glad I was one of the first people to get responses from big people in Ottawa on twitter.

I like pepperoni pizzaz

Fenix Rises 2026 10-23-2012 08:14 PM

Goal cannon is wicked.

I'd like to see the team hire on some full time people to give the games an "artsy circus" feel. Hire some stilt walkers, people to walk around in crazy artsy costumes, etc. (Like festabrew in Gatineau this year, if anyone else caught that). Have bands playing in the atrium, and occasionally bring in some of the better fringe fest type acts to put on a show there.

saskriders 10-23-2012 08:24 PM

Just a thought.

If it wasn't for HF there would be no Alfie chants, and Jerkstore's jersey may not have gotten enough attention to get introduced by the team.

If someone in here comes up with a really good idea, we may be able to use social media, and SensChirp (who does have some formal relations with the Sens) to actually have the idea happen.

That would be pretty sick in my opinion

Every goal, have a bunch of Spartans run through each section with swords just randomly yelling and doing tricks, like doing backflips off the 300s into the lower bowls.

EDIT: Fine, it appears as though I'm not allowed to use Spartans.

Mardi gras night :sarcasm:

One thing I was thinking.

Have a marching sound playing through the arena and have Roman soldiers marching on the score board and around the light panels.

Before the game begins

What did I say!?!

saskriders 10-23-2012 08:38 PM

I've always thought that for the playoffs we should have

Black towels in the 100s
White towels in the 200s
Red towels in the 300s

This is an idea I like.

Racist?

ErikNorrisson 10-23-2012 09:26 PM

3D Spartan Helmet at the bench for the players to skate out of and some red lasers

Okay -

Red towels in the 100s, White towels in the 200s, and Black towels in the 300s.

If we could get this going, I would really like to be a part of it.

The Sens already have an awesome Highlands marching band that plays in the concourse on all Thursday-Fri-Sat-Sun games.

They're my favorite current Sens gameday... thing.

Between periods they could have people fighting to the death at center ice on toga night. Throw in some lions as well as a few tigers and we've got ourselves a legit roman theme going on. Alfredsson could be brought back to do the whole "Thumbs up" or "Thumbs down" routine as the Senators' Emperor.

By "Atrium", do you mean inside the main gate, in the big open area near the box office? We did this at the beginning of the season, and we got so many complaints that we literally had to cancel the idea 1/2 way through the year.

The great thing about playoff hockey in Ottawa is that it's warm enough to have bands play just outside the main gate, but unfortunately, INSIDE the main gate (near the box offices and staircases to the 200/300 levels, the sound just carries way too much. The bands we had play were easily drowning out the rest of the arena.

Something simple when we score a goal. I like the Flames when they score, arena flashes a fire like color *orange*

We have the huge spotlight during the playoffs *Brighter* .

Never noticed that

They do have things that "shoot" a burst of fire though

Right when the goal horn first sounds off, the arena flashes Orange. Youtube it, I'm too lazy to find a half decent video that shows it.

Just lions, no tigers. But we should send the people who want "pizzaz!" to the lions.
