[POLL] Horn or Whistle? Which do you prefer?

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,

  1. Yeah… whatever… can’t fight the purists. Or as they’re called in other walks of life, politicians…

  2. Pathetic performance yesterday.. I want a refund of my money!! Again we got bullied in our own house and did nothing for it…this team is hands off period.. No hitting even.. It’s crazy.. It has to be the coach..they weren’t this girly last year

  3. Vollstaendig peinlich … The Phantoms have won exactly one of five games against THE worst squad in the entire 15-team Eastern Conference this season … The Lehigh Valley Phantoms now show the unimpressive all-time record of just 4 wins from 15 games against the something rather less than powerful Binghamton Senators.

    Mack Horn or Bethlehem Steel Whistle? … Well, Bethlehem Steel are long gone but Mack Trucks still maintains a presence not only in the Lehigh Valley but in the City of Allentown, itself. Man muss in die Zukunft blicken, denke ich. And so that’s how I voted.

  4. I was surprised and very much enjoyed the animation of the BIG front end of a MACK truck and the air horn blaring several times. A lot of people really seemed to like MeLVyn poppoing on screen and yanking his arm down like we used to do as kids for the truckers to blow their horns. Te whole animation, music and scoring collage wer very well done and quite professional.
