The article also reports that the iconic Brass Bonanaza will return to the arena for Saturday's big game. While some of the hardcore Whaler fans might not be in favor of this, we here at Sad City support the move. We always found something a little gut wrenching about attending games at Fenway Park, hearing the Brass Bonanza play after a big hit and knowing that 99% of the cheering lunatics have no idea where the song came from. Let Boston keep the insufferable "Sweet Caroline," Hartford needs to put it's collective foot down and reclaim the Brass Bonanza as it's own.
In honor of Connecticut Whale Week, Sad City wants to hear your best Hartford Whaler stories. Submit them here and we will run our favorites over the next week or so. Meanwhile bring in the holiday season by checking out the game on Saturday as it is sure to be a festive atmosphere.
