Caps WIn!!!!
« on: October 10, 2005, 03:32:00 pm »
Damn, working at home with afternoon games on TV kicks ass.  Caps came back from 2-1 to win 3-2.  Jagr got pummelled, Ovechkin scored.....a good way to avoid work for a while.
 
 I can't wait till the World Cup.  Productivity levels will sink to near zero.

Ovetchkin looks like the real deal.

question for caps fans:
 
 i'm looking to get 2 lower level seats for the lightning game next sunday as cheap as possible ... what do you think are my best options?
 
 last year (before the lockout), the caps were so bad that i could just walk up to scalpers outside MCI around game time and score lower level seats for REAL cheap ... is it still the same scene?  i've been trolling craigslist and finding some deals there, but nothing as bargain-basement as i'm really looking for
 
 ideas?

I'd go the scalper route especially on a Sunday.  Even when teh Skins are on the road they crush attendance at everything else, I bet there will be lots available for the Bolts game.
 
 BTW, did you get the last PM I sent you about the 22nd?

I think that the scalper route is still your best bet. During the last NHL season, I had a pair of lower bowl tickets for a Red Wings/Caps game and couldn't even get half of face value for them. I'm sure plenty of regular people (not scalpers) will be trying to get rid of tickets and will be happy to get some nominal amount for them.

I have never dealt with the scalpers  since i have season tickets, but i cant imagine they raise the price too much, and i am sure you can even get a deal sometimes.
 
   i'll be in good ole section 411....

I was so happy when the Pens lost the Ovechkin lottery, since that meant the Caps got him!! I got to meet him at the 2004 draft and he was the real deal off the ice and after seeing him play in the opener, he is the real deal on the ice.

My Prediction:
 
   Ovechkin hoists the Calder Trophy, but thats all he'll ever hoist.
 
   Crosby will hoist the Stanley Cup, but not until Hillary Clinton is President.

two years ago i was regularly able to get $80 seats for $40 or so from those guys outside of MCI, hopefully the market is similar this year =)
 
 i'm not sure if i've told this story on here, but the last lightning/caps game i went to at MCI ... it was late in the season and the caps were horrible, i think the bolts were up by a few goals and it was a pretty ugly game ... i was a bit drunk and had been pretty vocal throughout the game ... at some point in the third period after a long power play for the bolts spent exclusively in the caps zone, the caps finally cleared the puck ... i stood up and did this really sarcastic cheer for the caps clearing the puck, and someone threw a beer at me from behind ... it was hilarious =)
