NHL 94 On Stadium Screen...

Saw this article just now: https://www.polygon.com/platform/amp/22323401/nhl-94-jumbotron-nhl-2021-stadium-series-postponed-carolina-hurricanes-carter-finley-stadium

 

Basically, after the Canes stadium series was called off, the screen was used to play NHL 94 on. Laggy as sin, apparently.

I found the whole thing pretty weird, as they were still playing on / looking at small monitors from the look of things.  Cool idea though.

A while back, a group of us in Manchester hired a virtual golf simulator booth for the afternoon and played (take a deep breath) FIFA on a huge screen.  It was outstanding (and boozy).  When the EIHL '94 ROM gets finished, I am thinking of organising something in the Storm Shelter's bar and using projectors and the like.  Not the same as this but it could be quite fun.

I got to do this at the Prudential Center, playing against Ken Daneyko.  Still one of the coolest things I've ever done!

I remember seeing that clip online.  Daneyko's response to his 46 rating was great: "The only number that matters is three, as in how many Stanley Cups I've won."  Deadpan gold.

It's nice that barns are so small / intimate by comparison to, say, football (soccer) stadiums, as it looks like you had a great view of the game without having to squint.  If you tried using the "big" screen at Old Trafford (home of the godawful team that is Manchester United), you'd need a telescope.  And, afterwards, vaccinating just in case you caught anything from the locals.
