  1. Assuming all this is true, and assuming it works as well in reality as it says in the description, then I'll be fine with it. More than fine with it, in fact; if it works properly I'll be in favor of it.
  2. Clearly my rep either had no idea what he was talking about, or he plain old lied to me about forwarding tickets.
  3. Yep, that's exactly why I posted this here; because what my guy said is not what other people have been told. And my guy also said we're behind the Ticketmaster change, not "getting out ahead" of it. As I said, only time will tell. I don't think there's any real chance we're going to know how any of this works before we actually get the tickets and our online accounts get updated. I don't think the ticket reps really know, either.
  4. I just spoke to my rep about getting paper tickets, and he said nothing is changing in regards to managing our tickets online. He said, and I quote, "You'll still be able to forward or sell your tickets online exactly like before." To which I asked, specifically, would I still be able to email tickets to my brother-in-law that he could print out like always. He said yes. I suppose only time will tell, since this seems to conflict with other information we've heard. (He said he'd keep me on his list as a "maybe" for paper tickets, until we have our tickets in-hand and I can see for myself.)
  5. Heh, I've got nothing against towel-waving, but I didn't really care for the military vehicles in Championship Plaza. For me, the Army is a very specific thing with a very specific job to do. I don't like the word associated with civilian organizations. I don't think it reflects well on those organizations or on our military. (When I was a kid I was a huge fan of KISS, and I always hated that their fan club was called the KISS Army.) You may well be right. I'm not saying everyone needs to feel the same way I do. I'm just making the point that, as I said, nothing is going to please everyone. EDITED TO ADD: Truthfully, now that I think about it I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone actually mention any of the slogans (other than Kevin Clark, obviously).
  6. Well, maybe almost everybody. I wasn't exactly wild about the militaristic aspect of that one. But nothing's going to please everybody.
  7. I totally lucked out on the food line. Walked in the door just shortly after 5:00, and when I got in I went right down the stairs to the floor, walked right up to the buffet and picked up a plate. Might have been 20 people that made it through before me; virtually no waiting. And no line at all at the bar. A few minutes later as I was making my way up to a seat, the hordes were swarming in.
  8. Yeah, I imagine people will be doing all kinds of backflips to be sure they make it on time for this. My wife works every Tuesday night, but she put this on the work schedule as soon as they made the official announcement. Of course I realize not everyone is fortunate enough to have control over their schedule, though.
  9. You mean how long did the event last? Doors opened for STHs at 5:00, and to the general public at 5:30. Didn't end until the game was over.
  10. Some people in the garage elevator were complaining about it when I was leaving. "The organizational aspect sure leaves an awful lot to be desired," the father said. I said, " I thought it was great. I don't really see what more they could do to accommodate this many people for this kind of an event." Followed by total silence, the four of them self-consciously staring at each other until the doors opened and they got off.
  11. I've actually spotted 3 different Rags fans. WTF? You couldn't PAY me to go to a Lundqvist celebration.
  12. Hmm. Looks like my video didn't upload. Or at least it isn't working. Sorry.

  14. National Weather Service forecast for Tuesday says " A chance of rain and snow. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 39. Chance of precipitation is 30%. " Doesn't sound too bad.
