The Joe Louis Arena (a.k.a. The Joe) has been the home for our Detroit Red Wings for 30 years. It is named after the Detroit boxer, Joe Louis, heavyweight champion (we featured his fist here). Holding 20,000 spectators, it is also used for concerts, ice shows and even circuses. The San Jose Sharks come into town this Thursday night followed by the Senators on Saturday. A weird Detroit tradition is to throw an octopus on the ice if our home team scores a goal. No, it is not allowed, but crazy fans sneak them in under their coats or pants!
