The Captain's #19 to be retired January 2nd, 2007

The CP is reporting that the one-hour jersey retirement ceremony will take place before the Wings' Jan. 2nd game versus the Anaheim Ducks. Steve Yzerman's jersey will be the 6th to be retired by the Wings and will join Terry Sawchuk's #1, Ted Lindsay's #7, Gordie Howe's #9, Alex Delvecchio's #10 and Sid Abel's #12 in the rafters of Joe Louis Arena. If you want tickets to that game, camp out on your computer the night they are released because they'll be gone very quickly, I'm sure. It's either that or take out a loan in order to buy them off someone. By the way, does anyone know the ticket release schedule?

Because most people in the Detroit area care more about college football in early October than Fall hockey. When it's January 2nd, it will be more of a big deal and feel a lot more special.
