The Palace Comes with All the Bell's and Whistles!

I don't know who deserves the credit, but somewhere in the middle of Bill Davidson, Joe Dumars, Mase, George Blaha came little extras that make the Palace one of the most exciting places to see you a basketball game. Obviously Mase is so huge and brings so much, but to accompany him with enormous flame throwers, "going to work" steam whistles, Big Ben (clocktower) bells and even Rip Hamilton's voice exclaiming, "yessir!" - the crowd always is alive and excited.

And, the fans are part of it, as well. I am just amazed at how smart it was to come up with an automatic crowd participation like, "DDD-troit Basketball!!!" It makes the opposing players know they are against thousands. It's loud, it's intimidating and it's automatic. I don't care where you are at when Mase starts it: at home, at the Palace, in the bathroom... When you here, "DDD-troit," you follow, "Basketball!!" And you don't even have to be human, as proven in one of the greatest commercials ever, with that fantastic dog that seemed to have it down. It's just another reason to be a proud Piston Fan.
You get your money's worth at the Palace!

It's always a party at the Palace!
