So it's my birthday in a couple of weeks, and my wife got me some Sigur Ros tickets in Denver (for the 6th). My question is do I spend money on going to see the Avs when I know they are going to get killed by the Wings on the 5th?
I live out of state (it's about a 6 hour drive to Denver), so do I just see them while I'm there or so I go waste $200 somewhere else?
I've watched about 90% of the Avs games since they've come over to Denver, but these last few seasons have just about killed me
Spend the money and go. The rivalry may be dead for the players. But for the people in the stands it lives. Avs/Wings games are still a blast. Hell I'd be going if the Rockies home opener wasn't on the same day.
I bought a hat and sweatshirt this year, as well as center ice. But I watch a lot of other teams too.
All in all about $230 and none of it directly to the Avs but to the league. I want to go to an Avs game next year when they come to the area, but being a student I'll probably save my money for center ice and avoid another potential horror show.
I'm driving back home from Oregon to Fort Collins to visit family and am attending the April 5th Red Wings game. Of course I bought tix pretty much as soon as the season started and I had no idea the team would suck nearly as much they do. My son and I will have a good time regardless.
Yeah...If you have a chance to catch an NHL game I'd say go for it. I remember working at a power plant in North Carolina (south of Raleigh) when the Cane's first moved down from Hartford. I would drive all the way out to Greensboro to watch the AVs in a pre-season game.
You never know when you'll have a chance to watch them again live so enjoy it whenever you can.
What the eff is wrong with you? I wouldn't even spend $ on the team if I was a Blackhawks fan.
After the BS that this league put you through, don't spend a cent on them. If you buy merch like hockey card then it should be used. I wouldn't even pay for Gamecenter, I'd subscribe to HockeyStreams or use the free gamecenter apk floating online.
If seat location isn't an issue you can get to seat for around 35$ including the service fee from Stubhub. I rolled over my season ticket $ from this season to next year since I didn't want to drive to Denver from the Springs so often on a condensed schedule. I've gone to a few games this season with tickets from Stubhub, its good for bargain seats, if you are willing to support a team that isn't a great product right now.
This forum group think that you somehow shouldn't spend a cent on the Avs is idiotic. Especially when it comes from a group of people who watch most of the games, while insisting the team shouldn't make money and insisting that Kroenke is cheap.
Spend the money if you think the entertainment/experience you get from going to a game will be worth your money. I'm sure that with the team not having the best of seasons, cheap tickets should be available.
