Can we all take a moment to enjoy having the eyes of the whole country on us?
When the Prime Minister of the country is told he can only get 2 tickets, max…you know this is a big, big game. Sunday night’s first regular season game against Montreal is the hottest ticket in the country. For all those who aren’t among the lucky season ticket holders, it’s been a madhouse for months trying to get a seat. And not just for Winnipeg – people from all over the country are desperately trying to get tickets to the home opener. No surprise that former Winnipeggers, hockey lovers and assorted heavy hitters from everywhere are pulling out all the stops and trading on every connection they have to get into the game, most with no luck! Somehow I don’t even think Neil Young would be able to get a seat (but how cool would it be if he showed up to sing?)
Where are you watching the game?
