On hockey day in canada saturday the CBC news reports that the demolition of the historic winnipeg arena has begun. i was lucky to have made it to the historic arena in march of 1987 for a detroit vs winnipeg jets game and loved the arena.i even got the chance to go onto the ice after the game. the arena is located next door the the winnipeg football stadium. as i am sure that most people all ready HERE know i saw this PROGRESS SUCKS. granted the arena did not have the same mystic or history of the original 6 arenas but i enjoyed going there for a game. i heard that they just renovated the arena not that long ago. they could have used it for something rather than tearing it down. its a waste. SO LONG WINNIPEG ARENA THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES R.I.P.
