I was in the pool!!
- Apr 5, 2002
OK, ten years ago today.
That was the first time I'd ever bought tickets from Stubhub. I remember telling my wife this would either be one of the best purchases that we'd ever made or one of the worst. It was definitely one of the worst. Those final minutes of the 3rd with the we want the Cup chants were great.
My avatar picture is the view from 334 that night.

I was refreshing the Ticketmaster page the night before and two seats together appeared in 216, at $650 each, and I told myself the exact same thing. This is either going to be the best $1300 I ever spent or the biggest waste.
Worth every penny.
I was in the upper 300's, I forget where. Tickets went down in price after the devils won game 5. Paid 500.00. After 30 years of being a fan, I was not going to miss this.
My stomach was in knots that day. Feeling the wheels could come off any time. I was not even comfortable with 4-0 lead. I cried in front of 18,000 people that night.
Why was it one of the worst? You were there. (or is my sarcasm meter broken?
I jinxed it! Only 3 appearances in the next 8 years with 0 series wins.
No worries, it wasn't you it was Tim Leiweke leaving AEG.
It did not take long after Timmy left to see AEG's premiere sports franchises Kings and Galaxy crater to the bottom in an unprecedented fashion.
Once Danny B. (B is for bean counter) took over it was all about how much $$ he could squeeze out of fans, and not about winning.
