Empty Seats Tonight

A reliable source has told me that only about 12,000 tickets have been sold for tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues.

Joe Louis Arena’s capacity is 20,066.

That’s roughly 60% capacity, or “Phoenix Coyotes” territory.

I’m sure this is in part due to the weather, due to the economy, due to the fact that we’re playing St. Louis (not exactly a marquee team when NOT playing on a different continent).  I’m still a little disappointed.  I bought my two Coke Zero package tickets.  But it’s looking like seat upgrades are going to be there for the taking…

Oh and if I have to witness my 3rd loss to St. Louis in one single season, something will get damaged tonight.
