I would like to announce my opposition to Victor Hedman's semi-mullet.

The problem with it not being held in the arena is that they couldn't invite all of the season ticket holders to attend. The picking and choosing of who gets to attend these events is pissing this season ticket holder off.

Mr. Vinik opened by saying the reason they went to St. Pete was the team is Tampa Bay's team just like the Rays are Tampa Bay's team. I chuckled when he left out the Buc's. The venue showed his class as he feels a hockey captain is something that no other sport has.

Maybe this was an event only for the full season ticket holders. What package do you have Donnie?

Seems he and my daughter were from the same place and they had worked in the same building. Talk about a small world. He said the fans will be surprised with their visions for the land around the arena. It was the first time I have directly heard someone from Mr. Vinik's team say the words baseball stadium.
Thanks for the report.

Mullets and hockey are meant for each other. Long live the mullet.

Full season ticket holder with a very low (the good way) priority number.

There won't be 3 assistants according to the SPT. Thompson and Carle will alternate. It appears one will be the a on away and the other for home games.

Donnie, did you get the email invite? I now that the space was limited so maybe you responded too late. My email came across my phone and I send in the request right then and there.

I am assuming you got the letter with your new number. Mine is 64.

The man I talked to last night said it took them forever to come up with these numbers as it appeared that Mr. Davidson's group tossed them. They finally found a list in an old file and went from there.
