Lightning "Green" night
I know that we are making a push for being green as a society...but there's something about $5 tickets that seem to scream pre-Phoenix Coyotes situation to me. We saw the same promotion last season as well, but that was when we were completely sucking. Now, well, we've won 2 games in a row....so I'm still hopeful.
But to run a promotion like this, against a team like the Sharks, it's a little embarrassing. A little air of desperation? Like vodka with hockey tickets?
I know that management is just trying to get as many bodies in seats possible, because a little bit of money is better than no money, but once it catches wind to fans with teams with sold out venues or fans of Canadian teams, well the fan boards just eat it up and make Tampa seem laughable.
I'm a Tampa Bay Lightning fan. When not working, I spend much of my free time watching, reading, listening or attending hockey games. If there is no Lightning game, I can be found most nights at the rink with my other love, the Canucks.
