1939: The Greatest Year in Movie History


Story time:
So today my boyfriend and I attended the final game at Joe Louis Arena. About midway through the 1st period, the Wings tweeted out for fans to send them their seat numbers for a “special surprise” so we did as we were told. At 1st intermission we received a DM that said to come to section 115 to claim our prize, so we did. Turns out we won a certificate to randomly select a Red Wings player who we would get to meet ON ICE after the game and receive their GAME WORN jersey straight off of their backs! When we got to ice level, we flipped a card that told us that we were meeting Jimmy fricken Howard. To shorten this story, after the final buzzer, we got to walk on the ice in front of everybody, hold up a sign for Jimmy who then got to skate over to us, take his jersey off his back for us, sign it and take a picture with us. I am currently wearing Jimmy Howard’s GAME WINNING, FINAL GAME AT JLA jersey. It was the most incredible experience and I’ve never felt so blessed. Thank you @DetroitRedWings for an unforgettable night. #JerseysOffOurBacksCeremony
