So it is official!!
I am once again a season ticket holder for the Tampa Bay Lightning. My brother and I, were contacted by the Lightning about renewing our season ticket package. One of the first things that they told us is that they are reducing the price on 90% of the seats in the St. Pete Times Forum for next season. My guess is that they are trying to keep the 4000 or so loyal fans that show up to the games along with me and my brother nightly. Next they told us that after the game on Tuesday night against the Penguins, everyone who has renewed their tickets is invited to a meet and greet with the entire team and organization. There will be food and drinks there as well. This will give me a chance to scream in GM Brian Lawtons‘ face about some of the bone headed moves he has made this year. BARRY MELROSE and RADIM VRBATA anyone? I am gonna try and be on my best behavior at this event because it will give me a chance to meet some of the players who have actually worked hard, and played well this year. Matt Smaby, Mike Smith, and Steven Stamkos are at the top of my list.
I will keep you posted on how this event turns out. I have high hopes but wouldnt be suprised if its a bust and only third liners show up!
Also, I can not be held responsible for my actions if terrible Marek Malik shows up. Don’t even get me started on him though.
