FanDuel - WFBC

September 30, 2008

Is William Shattner the new head of marketing for the Blues?: The St. Louis Blues have announced a "Name Your Price" ticket sale where, like Priceline or Hotwire, fans can make an offer for tickets. It's believed to be the first such offer made by a pro sports franchise, but not all fans are thrilled about it.

Sure, the summer that I move 2000 miles away.

I like it. I hope it works. Anything to get fans back into that building could do no harm. I went to a few Blues weekday night games over the last 3-4 seasons and it was dreadful. Maybe 3-5,000 people, the chants sucked, and the towel guy was just depressing throwing shirts into empty seats. Weekends were okay, but St. Louis has had a big NHL/Blues hockey following in the past and I'd love to see it get back that way again.

Thanks for posting this, fraze.

The Blues are boldly taking this franchise where it's never been....to hockey purgatory!!

This is a great idea. Like Bo said, anything to put butts in the seats.

Kirk: Scotty!

Scotty: Aye Captain.

Kirk: Status?

Scotty: We've got no power play Captain. We can't put the bisquit in the basket sir.

Spock: Captain, it would seem logical that the law of averages would dictate that the Blues will eventually win the cup.

Kirk: If only, if only.

And as I've said for the last 40 seasons...THIS IS OUR YEAR!!

Again, this happens after I move but......

.....how about a season ticket delivery made by the players themselves.

I also happened to move to Ft. Myers, FL. the year that the Rams won the Super Bowl, so take that to mean whatever you want.

Ever since Ron Caron left the Blues have been hapless (Webster's Dictionary definition: destined to fail) Let Brett Hull leave, screw Curtis Joseph, goodbye Chris Pronger, etc.... Bring in KK and Osgood and tell us about payroll problems, sell the team to a bunch of useless greedy multi-millionaires who don't care the least about WINNING hockey, whine about the share of concessions ($8 beer, $5 soft drinks and WATER, and $160 jerseys you assholes) and then ask me what I will pay for a ticket? I was a season ticket holder for 4 years from 1995-1999 and a partial season ticket holder for 3 years after that. Here is my offer....send me $5000 and I promise to spend it on Blues tickets....NOT!
