I don't know.

In my opinion the music choices are pretty crap.
especially the intro music. terrible and predictable. Doesn't get me pumped up at all.

Don't take offense, BTW.

Oh, they're PURE crap, although I did hear somewhere that they were gonna switch their intro much like what they did last year when they went from "Renegades of Funk" by RATM to U2's "Vertigo"

Right now they open up with Kanye West's "Stronger", there's a quick little "Give me the light" by Sean Paul and then just before tip off, it's "The Way I Are" by Timbaland.
Crank That and Bay Bay are overplayed.
I know when the guys first come onto the court, they use "Hip Hop Police" by Chamillionaire. I think they use the version with Slick Rick, which is REALLY good.

If they really want to pump up the crowd, play some Linkin Park.

OK, i could pull some obscure stuff from my musical hat, but here's my top choices for intro music:

1. outkast: B.O.B.: why not use a classic hiphop track. so what if it's a few years old, this song will get EVERYBODY in the stadium and in TV land majorly juiced!

2. The Hives: tick tick boom: Excellent choice for it's hard hitting, catchy beat. It's current, and recognizable. A sure winner.

You read my mind man ..... an awesome "pump you up" song much like their hit "Hate to say I told you so". I would love to see them open up with "Tick, Tick, Boom".

Do you hear drumming after 5 or 6 of the ACC's 12 dollar pints?

I know 2 mediums which I guess is the cloest thing to a pint come out to $28.

When I was working there in the private boxes, a can of beer was $7.25 I can only imagine it has gone up again.

Jesus ... note to self, bring a flask if I ever attend a game at the ACC.

That's why I love having a friend as a Labatt beer rep because whenever I go to Sens games I get to watch them from the comfort of a private box and get all the free food and beer that I want.

Paying that much for beers and seeing no naked ladies is a travesty.

That's why sometimes I'll wear oversized hoodies to the game and sneak in stuff from freshly purchased from the LCBO right in Union Station, right around the corner from the ACC.

I think one of my kidneys belongs to MLSE for the beer I purchased at the Leafs-Rangers game I went to about a month ago.

They tried, but the music put the patrons and the dancers to sleep.

I was at the Celts game on sunday. 4 medium beers and 2 roast beef sandwiches = $60.00...

*puke*

Benzo is right. They have this live drum "group" of 3 or 4 guys. It's brutal. I think it started late last year. They drum on their own and also along with a lot of the piped in stadium music, drowning it out and pissing everyone off. Damn, I hate those guys...

I don't get the live drumming...this isn't Cleveland...oh wait, this isn't Indians baseball either. Come to think of it, it isn't soccer either. No drums please...it's like the Jays Dance Crew (or whatever they were called), just doesn't fit.

Speaking of the Jays, when I was in Dunedin for spring training, I was a mess one night at "Stormin's Palace", where it was $10 all you can drink. Showed up to the park the next day with a hangover. Wanted a lemonade. Price? Something like $8. Price for a beer? Something like $6. I ordered another beer. This story comes with the caveat that I may have actually still been drunk and just confused the prices.

Prices at the ACC are criminal. They should make Bargnani serve drinks until he's not "tired" anymore. Full game on your feet climbing steps, see how tired you are after that!

Let's pump some Air Supply as the opening music. Just throw everybody into confusion and convulsions.

Coltrane...why a pitcutre of Satchmo?
