When Kraken opens Climate Pledge Arena, here’s what you can expect to hear – The Athletic

What was supposed to be a few friends on the ferry turned into the story behind how Seattle Kraken find their target horns.

In fact, everyone in the Kraken organization knew Lamont Buford and Jonny Greco were inseparable. Some of that has to do with their work. Buford is Kraken’s vice president of game presentation, while Greco is senior vice president of game presentation and live entertainment. The rest of it has to do with the fact that they are extremely close friends. Greco and his family invited Buford to join them on a day trip to Bainbridge Island. They were enjoying the view when they heard a ferry whistle blowing in the distance.

That’s when it hit them. There might be something there.

“We said, ‘That’s it! It’s the goal whistle! ‘” Buford recalled.

“What really got the deal going again was that we were attending a breakfast meeting with our friend, Pat Walker. He was a Seattlite who did what we do but for the Sonics. In the middle of our meeting, a whistle blew over the water. He told us, ‘What do you think? That should be the goal whistle, right? ‘ We giggled… (and) just told him we were looking at all our options. ”

The sound of a ferry whistle echoed throughout the Climate Pledge Arena, both Seattle and Washington as a whole. The image of the Kraken flying down the ice on peak, scoring a game-defining goal and then blowing the ferry whistle to declare the moment was incredibly captivating.

However, there is still one question that Buford and Greco need to answer: Where exactly do people find a random ferry whistle?

Buford said they can’t call the companies that make the whistles and ask them to copy the ferry whistles. They know they have to get an authentic ferry whistle. So they started researching.
