I’m always happy with the freebies. If the shirts or hats are cool they go into my rotation. If they’re ugly, I just use ‘em for working around the house. And generally, once the season is over any ‘terrible towels’ we’ve accumulated get used for our dog, so it doesn’t really matter what they look like.
Slightly off-topic: does anyone know more-or-less when the promotional schedule will be posted? We’re starting to think about selling off some of our tickets, but of course we want to be sure to hang onto the promotional dates.
If I remember right, they usually release these late in the pre-season or in that period between the end of the pre-season and opening night.
Usually by opening night, they have a list of promo nights, but usually is somewhat incomplete as they add more through the year. Usually by late November the list is complete, but they sometimes have nights that are kinda last-minute and is not on the calendar. The one that comes to mind that was recent was the Telebrands giveaway a couple seasons back against Columbus.
