The first version of the Macon Whoopee played in the SHL in the 1973-74 season but packed it in mid-year due to poor attendance. They resurfaced in the CHL in 1996 only to fold again in 2001. But the Whoopee returned in 2001 playing one final season in the ECHL when the Tallahassee Tiger Sharks relocated to the Georgia city. This puck is the game puck used that season. The phrase ‘Makin’ Whoopee’ was made popular by the 1928 Gus Kahn song and the popular 1960’s TV game show ‘The Newlywed Game’. The Whooping Crane was incorporated into the logo in 1996 and as an added double entendre it’s menaced by a bee giving us the subtle ‘birds and the bees’ inference. The team moved on to Lexington Kentucky the next year bringing an end to the Macon Whoopee era. Just a fun name and a cool puck.
