Shimmer Wall Showing Canes Pride?

Photo taken at 9:08pm, 5/26/08

During the Canes’ implosion last night, I decided to get one last picture of the shimmer wall. I read here that the Raleigh Convention Center was lighting up the shimmer wall the color red while the Carolina Hurricanes were working their way through the playoffs. Having never seen this, or previously known about it, one last picture before the season ended was in order. Sadly, this was not to be. Did anyone see it during the last few weeks of hockey action? What do you think of the shimmer wall light show overall?

The shimmer wall always looks good during the day. See this picture large on Flickr.

  1. The sad thing is – and it’s only my opinion – that the West side of the new convention center looks nicer than the East side (the front) :( it is more photogenic, but it’s also taller.

  2. I haven’t noticed any red/white coloring for the Hurricanes lately.
    (Or a red/white/blue for Memorial Day, which would’ve been nice.)

    In fact most of this past weekend it looked like it was just rotating random colors as usual. What was funny was that it appeared one panel was stuck on greenish-blue for a few nights in a row. Looked kinda funny.
