“Last Minute To Play In This Period”….In Memory of Budd Lynch

Oh God will we miss you Budd.

Not only those us old enough to remember this man’s wonderful voice doing the play by play on radio as far back as I can remember (age 4 – 1961) in Detroit were saddened hearing the news of this cherished part of Red Wings history’s death, but all of the NHL hockey fans from a time when it was only the original 6.

To us Budd Lynch was Hockey!

And more importantly after radio, nobody would actually let him retire. That is how much he was loved by all. No one could fathom Red Wing Hockey without him. And I thank God generations past our parents and us boomers got the chance to continue hearing him at the Joe’ as the public address announcer. You see Budd was a Tradition as well as an Iconic Legend straight through to the end of the 2011/2012 season.

From an era even before Hockey Night In Canada started on the TV side, Budd’s voice rang out for 63 years as our announcer…. and he will never be forgotten.

God Speed to his family, friends and fans.

Russia & Dynamo Minsk’s Moving Memorial Tribute to Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Team Who Tragically Died in a Plane Crash.

An astounding beautiful and emotional tribute for these players tragically killed which included three of our former Detroit Red Wings.

You don’t have to understand one word of Russian the video speaks for itself.

How can you watch this without tears flowing even if you never watched hockey one day in your life. The Dynamo Minsk players and Russia are a class act for this memorial. NHL teams as well will pay homage.

But nothing can or will be as moving as the Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League’s.
