    Default Funny Sales Pitch from LA Kings...... lol

    I received a "Special Offer" booklet in my mailbox from the Kings yesterday. It says that IF I "mention this offer" when I buy a Season Ticket Package, I can get a SIGNED PUCK, while supplies last.

    I can't decide if that's better or worse than a plastic wallet. Meanwhile, I'm looking at opening night tickets for LESS than STH price.

    Both! I was laughing just waiting to see what the "special offer" might be. A plastic wallet? A signed 5x7" card? Nope, a signed hockey puck. It's going to take much more than a hockey puck to sell me $10K in tickets that I could buy on the secondary market for a fraction of the price. Hahaha.

    I got 3 copies of the same mailer. I'm on ALL the lists! (I share season seats, but it's not my name on that account)

    GO KINGS GO!!!

    Again, everyone complaining about the resale market seems to conveniently ignore the high-demand games that they're able to sell for double/triple the STH price. Sure, I sold my $39/per ticket seats for $13/per versus Calgary in October and for $14/per versus Ottawa in December. But I sold for $66/per versus Anaheim in November. $99/per versus Vegas is December. $108/per versus Anaheim in January. Plenty more money losers and plenty more money winners throughout the season. It really does even out, if you honestly crunch the numbers (super-premium seats excluded--I'm sure it's harder to recoup your center-ice 100 level seats...). Yes, you could probably put together a 10-15 game plan of weekday games versus small market opponents for less than half of the STH price. But there's no way you could attend every single game for a "fraction of the STH prices".

    Did you see the new commercial with Kopi at the beach. The commercial should have ended with California Dreamin.

    For tomorrow's Red Wings game, I could buy 2 tickets behind the net Kings Shoot 2x for $70/ea after fees, way lower than STH price! I could go center ice Sec 101 or 101 for $100/ea.

    No way I would pay full fare STH price!

    Yes we know. You said so all last season too. And you love Vegas.

    Time to come up with a new gimmick...
