One other thing, I'm guessing the Avalanche game would be a lower tier as far as pricing? I know in Ottawa, games like Colorado...or any southern US team is usually cheaper than games against Toronto or Montreal.
Ticketmaster does kind of screw people over like that with rivalry matches being worth way more so Colorado games (on a weekday too) should probably be 'cheaper' and I use that word loosely.
I've heard its awesome. I want to check it out at some point.
I usually hate hyping up shows, because it's so much more difficult to be impressed with a show you're watching for the first time when you expect it to be good; but this is one of the few cases where I am confident about hyping it.
The wire is perhaps one of the best written shows that has ever been on TV.
