Offical season ticket holder

Postby newarenanow on Wed Aug 08, 2012 1:18 pm

I'm now an offical season ticket holder with the tickets under my name and under my control. No more sharing, no more having the tickets under someone elses name and then they ditch me.

So now that it is offical, how do I ***** about everything and fit in with the others.

First, complain about they don't treat you like a god now as opposed to those "normal fan" peons.

Also, you don't get enough free stuff. They should have free nacho days for season ticket holders.

I'm already mad that the Pens didn't come onto LGP and congratulate me personally.

Free nachos would be awesome. Email the Pens PR department.

Make sure to include in each post about how terrible the CEC is and how the Igloo was a perfect hockey venue. It should go well with your screen name.

since you're now a season ticket holder, tell them to change the cheese back to the 2009-era cheese

About 5 or 6 years.

I think I've posted the story before, but from like 2001 until 2006, my buddy and I split season tickets with two other guys my buddy worked with. They weren't close friends or anything, but we knew them well enough to split the tickets. And any additional game I wanted to go to, I student rushed (used old ID or had others buy tickets well in advance, in those days, there were no lines).

When the Pens got Crosby and the team got good again, the guys we split with just stopped taking our calls and we pretty much knew they didn't want us to go in with them anymore after doing it for 5 years. I think they just wanted to sell and profit off the tickets. So the day that happened, I got on the waiting list. So that was what, 5, 6 years ago.

During that time though, we just bought some games off of my brother and other friends for season ticket prices. But it is nice to finally have them in my name, where I control them and we can't get ditched again.

So now I have Pitt FB season tickets, Pens tickets, split Pitt BB tickets. And I've been on the waiting list for the Steelers for 12 years now, but that will probably be another 10 years before I even get a sniff at those.

Yea, but a hook or chainsaw and there is no way in hell that I am getting into the game. That's why it is heartless.

Maybe NAN could feed them to you.
