2 Things

1. I have a concert tonight, but I’ve decided to attempt to avoid the score and watch the game on DVR delay.  This is always a risky proposition, as I tend to become unreasonably angry after I watch a DVRed loss.

Kate’s anger index:

A loss I didn’t see because I was playing a concert = Meh.  Whatevs.
A loss watched in real time = anger/sadness depending on the game
A loss I go out of my way to watch on a DVR delay = white hot fury coupled with agonized screams of, “Why are the Sabres trying to ruin my life?! WHHHHHHYYYYY?!”

2.In other, unrelated news….the Tampa Bay Lightning have reduced season ticket prices to $239 in 20% of their arena.  That’s $239 for the entire season. They’ve also restructured the payment plan so you can pay for your tickets (which average out to $5.69 per game) with eight $30 per month payments.  I’m totally not kidding.

    If I a.) liked the Tampa Bay Lightning or b.) liked southern hockey at all, I would snatch those season tickets up.

    LOL – at what point is it cheaper to buy season tickets in Tampa and hop on JetBlue for the 3 or 4 games they play there, than buy tickets in Buffalo? Plus you get to spend the day somewhere where it is warm.

    Tim, that is SUCH a good idea. Who wants to take a vaca with me?!

    WHAT. Man, if for whatever reason I happened to travel downt to Florida frequently, I’d totally buy season tickets so I could catch a NHL game whenever I’m in the area.

    This might realistically be my vacation plan for next year.
