The Pulse is a quick trip around sports asking Game Operations personal a topical question regarding their production or event. We then bulk the answers together in an effort to showcase what's happening around the country at different levels and in different sports.
Teams in hockey and hoops discuss what they did this year on Opening night and what they attempt to accomplish via their event production on that night.
Teams discuss how they approach fireworks, along with ideas to improve. Thanks to our Game Operations Professionals for their time and insight.
Teams discuss how they approach the National Anthem, including song selection, standard proceedure, league rules and singer selection.
Moment of Silence
Many teams honor people, players or events with a Moment of Silence, some even ask the fans to reflect at each game during war time. The timing, duration and details vary and we asked several teams how they execute their commemoration.
