City Paper is not for tourists
The Caps have been getting all the attention lately.
So at least one bit of last night’s game report from Chinatown by Fox-5’s 10 o’clock news gatherer Bob Barnard came as a shock.
The shocking portion:
“Wednesday was Rock the Red towel night at the Verizon Center, but it wasn’t a sell out. That said, the tickets that were available weren’t cheap, and those coming from the box office would set you back more than $100.” (Italics added.)
What? Not a sellout? Every other news organization used some form or “sold-out Verizon Center” in their game stories.
Yet Barnard led viewers to believe he actually walked up to the ticket window.
Have we been duped? Are all the hockey-buzz stories bogus?
Tickets were available at the box office at game time for Game 1?
Good golly. I just went to the Caps website and tried ordering for Game 2.
It ain’t sold out, either.
Sounds to me like it’s time for another “Save the Caps” telethon!
