I just ordered 4 tickets in the suite, who else is going? Let's get organized after the jump!
First, nothing here is set in stone, other than going to the game. Hopefully a conversation opens up in the comments and we can get organized and maybe meetup at a hotel in Sunrise/Ft. Lauderdale before heading to the game.
Second, a link to the post where you can get ordering info:
I've ordered 4 tickets for myself, a girl friend, my pops, and my uncle. All of us are die hard Bolts fans and we're looking forward to checking out South Florida. So far our plan is to leave Saturday morning, get checked in at a hotel (not sure which one yet), go to the game, and then see what kind of nightlife we can find. If anyone else is going and you want to get a group organized, and possibly a group rate for the hotel rooms, please post in the comments below. This should be a fun time and scenic trip through south central Florida (considering an airboat tour for Sunday morning before heading back to Tampa). Let's show the Panther faithful (I call'em Fanthers) some Tampa class!
This is also a great way, I think, to start the season... Just like the Lightning we'll be starting the season ON THE ROAD! And who knows, maybe a new tradition is starting where the first game between the two in state teams is a road trip for the away team fans!?
Rivalry traditions need to start somewhere, why not with us? Let's not continue to wait for Tampa hockey sports culture to be defined by the impartial "I root for the Lightning except when their playing [insert name of any major northern city east of St. Louis]" people when we the real fans have a chance to define it ourselves! Bring your Tampa pride to Sunrise!
I look forward to the comments.
but still tuned in...
