I have season tickets to the Admirals, and I'm always amazed that more people don't come watch. Tickets are all $15 and $12 and the still only draw acouple thousand for weeknights and maybe 5 thousand on the weekends.
And we're the defending Calder Cup champs with some really exciting players like Simon Gamache, Darren Haydar, Ryan Suter, Jordin Tootoo. I'm very dissappointed at the lack of support and interest for good pro hockey in a town the size of Milwaukee.
Fortunately, a new group of younger owners have bought the team and I think they look at it as an investment that should pay off, so they will invest in marketing. The old owner was an elderly mega millionairess, who really didn't know much about or enjoy hockey, she just owned the team as a civic charitable contribution to Milwaukee, and because her second husband was Lloyd Pettit, the old Blackhawks announcer. Nowe that they are both dead and the team is in younger hands, I hope more people show up, even if it means I have to give up my choice of good seats every night.
