I just feel like I'm getting pooped on by my favorite sports....
First there's the NHL lockout...
Then last night...
Got tickets to the Red Bulls match... and before you tell me "oh you take the risk by going..." or "you know what the weather report said" ... well no crap. But if the Devils are playing a playoff game and the weather is bad but the league and the the team insists that the game will go on no matter what... you're going to try to go right?
They should have cancelled the game in the morning yesterday... before 11 buses from DC made their way up... before us die hard (idiot) RBNY fans braved the weather, spent money on mass transit or parking, food, drinks, tickets, and merch...
Hell... they had 20 people continuously shoveling the field for over two hours. I honestly feel like they dragged it on for as long as possible just to get maximum concession profits... then they have no problem putting a half assed message on the screen asking fans to drive home in the worst of the storm.
... and we complain about Gary Bettman? This whole thing is Don Garber's fault. The Red Bulls were trying to cancel the game 24 hours in advance. Garber forced this whole thing to happen.... he even grabbed a shovel and stood on the field for a few minutes to the NBC cameras could get him on TV looking like he gives a damn... I can't make it tonight to the rescheduled game but I am not happy about how last night went down.
