Yeah, I see that. Unless you wanna buy singles. There's still lower bowl singles available.

I also just checked Kijiji out for ya. There's people selling them on there. I imagine they're more money, but if you really wanna go and have the $, there is some on there. Good luck to ya.

I think he's a hack because all I hear from him is how he was on Fear Factor and how he just tosses in random obscenities to make himself more obnoxious.

I've never watched UFC, so I guess I've never seen the other side of him. Feel free to enlighten me.
Come on now, how in the hell can you call him a hack when you've never listened to him. He has two comedy specials out, the latest was Talking Monkey's in Space, both are excellent.

Hopefully this can change your mind.

I lasted 12 minutes before I had to close it. It's safe to say my opinion hasn't changed.

Any mod feedback to find out if this could be stickied? I think it's safe to say that folks might find it useful.

Hmm, that's longer than the five seconds it took before throwing up in my mouth watching Dane Cook.

Joe Rogan is alright, but he's extremely annoying in his blow by blow analysis.

No. I was just agreeing with you. He sucks. His liberal swearing makes his unfunny act even more unbearable.

I had free tickets to Bryan Adams...

And I have to say I was thoroughly impressed. Wow...

Pat Quinn showed up after the first encore and did a huge speech, gave Adams a Gretzky jersey, and then he continued on.. followed by a huge fire works show.

I didn't pay to see it, but if I had any idea it was going to be that good I would have...

I heard Patty said something along the lines of,

"The season hasn't started yet and I don't know what is to come but one thing I do know is we will try to contend for the Cup"

or some stupid **** like that.

If true, *laugh out loud* but still cool none-the-less.

I heard nothing about the cup.... I was also enjoying some bevvies and yelling like an idiot, so I may not be the best judge of what he said .

The gist of it sounded like he wasn't going to promise anything other than the team was going to be a hard working team that brought their best every night, and that was that.

The wife is a big fan and I'd rather her listen to Bryan Adams than Celine Dions screeching but the 100bucks was a bit much.

Seen him before and a good live performer. One of those guys who seems to really like playing live.

People are always surprised how many Bryan Adams songs they know very well.
Quite the catalog he has to play.

Mitch Hedberg is another very funny comedian that died way too early.

You couldn't be more bang on the money...

Like I said - free tickets, so I found a buddy who was interested and away we went. We're driving there, and can only figure out 3 songs each we knew by him, but figured he'd put on a good show.

Get there and end up knowing all but 2 or 3 of his songs...

the whole point of an nhl team is to try and win the cup
may be a long shot for us, but you still gotta try to win it

Yes you're absolutely correct but I'm just not sure if the words spoken by him were "we will try to" or simply "we will". There is a difference.

Even though they suck live, it should be noted that Dragonforce is playing at Edmonton Events Center on the 23rd.

And all the other little monsters I couldn't think of at the moment?

Wicked that Slipknot is coming. Saw them back in (I want to say 05??? It was January, and in support of Subliminal Verses, with Killswitch and Unearth opening). Unreal energy on stage. I remember that show seemed really odd as I'd never been to a metal show where there were so many little kids. There were even Dads with 5yr olds on their shoulders??? Guess it means the next generation of metalheads will be strong, so good on them.
