Go. You don't have any effect on the outcome of the game, you narcissist! Really, there's a somersaulting monkey demanding your presence. I just went to the Blackhawks vs. Preds game on Sunday at a packed United Center, and I was wishing I was at a half-empty Bulb. I paid $65 per for myself and my g/f in the nosebleeds! Go, get to the game and have a great time! You'll be regretting every game you skipped when the bandwagoneers drive up ticket prices.
BTW, there are plenty of those up here, too! Loads of people in brand-new red Blackhawks jerseys with names on their backs who don't know the game all that well. My Southern hockey pride was through the Madhouse roof as I was the only one anywhere near me in another team's jersey.
