I used to sneak in foot long subs - cut them in half, one up each sleeve in a puffy coat.

No joke.

Haha yes! Forgot about sneaking in food too, the puffy coat was perfect for getting stuff in. You could tell when people were bringing things into the arena cause they wore their big winter coats during the spring lol.

And yes I was very cheap and poor back then.

lol I guess security didn't care what you brought in when the Devils weren't seeing much of the concession profit anyway.

You can sneak things into the Rock as well...being a female has its perks.

At Thanksgiving I've snuck in turkey sandwiches, chips, drinks.

I brought in an iced tea bottle last night. The security person was cool about it.

I flask it to the games these days. All you need is a large Sierra Mist when you get there and got a huge mixed drink for the rest of the game that puts me on my ass by the middle of the third.

Totally gets worse. Between 18-22 or so I was weirded out when there were guys younger than me in pro sports leagues. Now that I'm 25, its that much worse, as the best players, not just rookies, on these teams are younger than me. Many fans (of any age really) may refer to the younger players on a team as "kid" just because they're a kid relative to the vets on the team. If I use the phrase, its no longer about how old they are relative to their teammates. Its because of how young they are relative to me

Try having only two guys on the team older than you. We need Langs, and Rolston back I'd feel a little younger! Pandolfo too!

I have no idea what you're asking for. But I'm not far from the age where I'm too old and tired to do it, so let me know how that works out and when its ready.

You get used to it. What's weird is when you look at Travis Zajac (for example) and say "wow, he's pretty old now, when did that happen?" and then realize if he is, you are too.

Exactly. I used to hang on to the fact that people with the same birth year are older than me. My birthday is late 1987, so most players born in that year are older than me. When that's what I had to cling on to, and how quickly that ended up no longer helping me out.... that was a clear sign I was old. I used to feel relieved that Crosby was older than me (wearing 87 for his birthday year). After about a year or two when you have new crops of these 18 year old rookies coming in it was essentially the end of my attempt at feeling young.

I read this earlier. Was really nice to read it and us actually getting GOOD press for our attendance for once. Seems the team really has turned the corner. Another deep playoff run will only help.

I staunchly believe that if you lower the clubs by just 50 bucks, you'll have more people buying them...its already annoying seeing it look empty because people watch from the tables up there...

And people will still be eating and sitting at the bar and not in there seats... Has nothing to do with pricing or anything,

Sellout is a bit of a misnomer...Having once worked for an organization that received some of those held tickets we would have to tell the organization 24 hours out which tickets had not been distributed. Even now, my wife works for one of the large Pru center sponsors and she will get e mails at 1 pm that tickets are available for certain things,(some Devils every Net game last year. Most family shows) free. These are counted in the sellout even tho they are comp tickets,..A big difference between here and the Meadowlands is that it is beneficial for them to get fans in the seats..all the ancillary revenue is not going to the NJSEA...So maybe every game isnt sold out but just by looking we've had 17000 plus almost every night since march of last year.

Club seats will always be spotty as has been stated because of the bar area and tables. Really the ONLY way besides removing that area or making it off limits during the game would be to sell the bar and table seats as separate seats and do like waiter service for the club seats. Actually think that is a terrible idea, but you can't get the clubbys to sit there unless you force them, and that isn't cool.
