bomber, we are also planning to head to the shoebox several times. We have usually stayed at the Hampton. The Holiday Inn is just across the parking lot.
From my experience the fans on Rowdy's side are much more welcoming than the ones across the rink. Of course, I was there representing the hated Mudbugs so maybe that had something to do with it.
I will still be wearing my Mudbugs jersey. I'm hoping to wiggle my way into seats close to section C.
I used to just call the front office for tickets but with the new structure I'm not sure if that still works.
Although most my Brahma buddies don't seem too keen on ZuRomas, my crew always loves to get to the shoebox early and spend some time eating and drinking there pregame.
We are in the works for October 22. I may even make the preseason run.....
