Jacket Backers Promoting Tix For Detroit Games 1 & 2
By: Jeff Little • April 13th, 2009
The JacketBackers are announcing potential ticket deals for Games 1 and 2 of the 1st Round playoff series in Detroit. We have the chance to get $60 seats for $45, provided that we get at least 20 participants.
We are getting the word out on this any way we can, so that Jackets fans can represent in Detroit. My wife and I were in Detroit for the 8 – 2 rout of the Red Wings, and it is an experience to behold. We will be there for Game 2 as well, so go to the JacketBackers website
or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
This is a tickets only trip, so transportation and lodging are on your own. I will add a personal plug for the Greektown Casino & Hotel, which took very good care of us on our trip.
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
