Phoenix Coyotes at Chicago Blackhawks

16 October 2008 No Comment

In my first NHL game of the 2008-09 season, the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 4-1. New at the United Center this season is a Jagermeister concession stand. Fans can buy straight shots of Jager or a Jagerbomb (the drink is pre-mixed).

Obtaining Tickets
Before the game, I checked craigslist.org and noticed fans were asking for $5 per ticket. Thus, I had planned to buy a $5 ticket outside the United Center. I held back and did not even ask how much tickets were from the scalpers along Madison Ave. As I approached the United Center, multiple people were giving away their tickets. One guy gave me a single and another fan had two extras he was trying to give away.

It appears that the Blackhawks did such a good job marketing their team this summer that fans may have over bought tickets. Although the Blackhawks may state their games are sell outs, it may be a prime season for free or close to free tickets. Time will tell.
