Did Kevin Bieksa orchestrate this lockout just to increase demand for his charity game?
Probably not. But it would have been a savvy move if he had, because with nothing else going on in Canuckland, tickets for Wednesday night’s tilt between
the Canucks Bieksa’s Buddies and the UBC Thunderbirds sold out within just a few hours on Ticketmaster Saturday.
Granted, UBC’s Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre only holds 5000 people and tickets were only $20 apiece, so it wasn’t going to take long to reach capacity in this town anyway. But Bieksa’s Buddies were an even hotter commodity than expected.
Now, if you didn’t get tickets, we would like to give you our deepest sympathies. And also two tickets.
Want to win two seats at Wednesday’s game? Simple. Finish this sentence in the comments:
The thing I miss most about the Canucks is…
Be funny. It’s more fun that way, and we’ll probably compile the best responses into a post on Friday.
But don’t worry if you’re inherently unfunny like a present-day Dane Cook, because we’ll be picking the winner at random. You can say anything and your chances of winning will remain the same.
That draw will take place Tuesday at 12pm sharp. Good luck.
UPDATE: Congratulations to contest winner Cathy Miller, who will be flying up from California just to take in the game! That’s commitment.Tags: Bieksa's Buddies, charity, giveaways, PITB Contests
