Then there's the All Star game. Columbus has been lucky enough to host this year but it doesn't look like they're going to go through with it. How can they play an All Star game if none of the teams have stepped foot on the ice for an actual competition yet this year? I'll be super bummed if they announce that it's cancelled. Until I get my money back for the tickets I already bought, that might make it feel a little better. I'm pretty sure we're up to almost $400 with all the cancellations on our quarter season ticket package. I guess that means more money for Christmas. No, actually we'll probably just save it. How boring.
If women were running the show, we would have this whole thing figured out by now. Here's how it would go...
Players: "We want more money"
Ownership: "No, we want more money, but we'd settle for a hockey themed party. You can find ideas on Pinterest"
Players: "Wait, we want a hockey themed party!"
On second thought, we would probably not help the situation. Silly women and their parties.
I hope this whole thing gets figured out soon, but I probably won't be buying tickets next year because of it. They should know not to piss off the fans. I know this isn't just a Blue Jackets issue, but I wouldn't be surprised if they go kaput and Columbus no longer has a hockey team. They've already been struggling so I hope this isn't the last straw.
