To the surprise and delight of many–and the disappointment of others–Friday night was the debut of the new goal horn at the PPL Center, for the Phantoms. If you look carefully, you can see them mounted from the ceiling, and the MACK printing–it’s air horns like a truck, right? This replaces the steam/whistle that was supposed to be a throwback to the days of the steelworkers working in the Bethlehem Steel plant(s).
Hockey purists lamented the lack of a true goal horn, while some were just as happy to have the whistle as a unique feature of our new arena and something you won’t see at just anyplace.
Well, how do you feel?
See you at the arena,
