Just read this article. Makes me want to move to Pittsburgh. Sounds like an excellent hockey town where the fans support the team and the team supports the fans.
Also, this confirms that Mario Lemieux is a business genius as well as a great hockey player. He pretty much single-handedly rebuilt the Pens since he bought them in '99. It's amazing that a team that used to be on the verge of bankruptcy can forgo over a million dollars in ticket sales to give back to the fans and support the community.
"Drag you to hell I'm evil dead, you can call me Sam Raimi/ These Muthafuckas
want a verse but they can't pay me."
yeah, the penguins are a great organization. for select home games every year, the pens use all there single game tickets and sell them to college students for $20. you just need a college ID.
and that's not because they can't sell the tickets. like the article said, the pens have sold out over 160 games in a row. the cheapest single game seat is probably $40 or so, and students can buy up any remaining seat for $20. that includes the $100+ tickets that weren't bought up by season ticket holders.
and for those games where the students are waiting in line for tickets, the penguins players show up with free pizza and personally deliver it to the college students themselves.
I'm at the first ever Penguin game at the new Consol Energy Center, albeit an exhibition game.
So are you saying that hockey treats their fans better than any other sport or are you bragging that the sports you like can treat their fans like shit?
headed to the Pens/Habs game. hopefully i see the first ever win at the Consol Energy Center tonight.
Just scored some tickets to the Winter Classic at Heinz Field. Cost me $300 apiece.
lol @ Toronto fans throwing waffles at the players on the ice. Even the green men in Vancouver were making fun of them.
bruins have no scoring again this season..
i expect another epic colapse for them if they make the playoffs
Winter Classic moved to 8pm tomorrow night. sweet, i can't get fucked up at the Wu concert tonight.
