It's great that tickets and parking for this game are free. Hopefully people will go spend some money at the bars / restaurants downtown.
I hope people spend more money at bars/restaurants downtown than concessions at the arena. That's my one big hangup in all this. When I go to a Bulls game at the Cow Palace, the Bulls get my money. When I go to a Bulls game at the Arena, the Sharks get my money (if I buy anything). Free tickets is the least they can do.
