If you've been listening to sports radio in town, you may have heard Senators President Cyril Leeder saying recently that some of the seats with the lowest price point are going unsold at Scotiabank Place, tickets that cost as low as $15 (tax included).
So in an effort to increase fan awareness of these available seats, the Senators contacted Black Aces recently with some tickets for me to give away to a pair of lucky fans and that's just what we're going to do.
Up for grabs are two pairs of tickets in the Coca-Cola Zero Zone for this Tuesday's (Nov.9) game against the Atlanta Thrashers.
All you have to do is email me the correct answer to this trivia question:
Who is the only Senators player in modern history to wear sweater number 19 in the regular season other than Jason Spezza and Alexei Yashin?
Enterprising fans will know where to find this info online.
The first two people to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct player will get a pair of tickets to the Thrashers game on Tuesday (7:30 pm puck drop) which you will be able to pick up at the "will-call" office at Scotiabank Place the night of the game. I'll let you know by email no later than Sunday night if you've won and announce the winners on Black Aces shortly after. Make sure to write your full name in your email so there's no confusion at the will-call window.
While we generally don't do promotions here at Black Aces, this was too good of an opportunity to pass up. A couple of my readers get free tickets and the Senators get more butts in the seats. I've sat in the Coca-Cola Zero Zone once or twice in the past (sections 314, 315 and 316) and it's a good, inexpensive place to see a game, plus it's in the visitors end so you get to see the Senators coming at you 2 out of 3 periods.
Watch the blog for a couple more ticket giveaways in the coming month.
As for tonight's game against the Habs in Montreal, I picked the Senators to pull out a close one on the Citizen's Prediction Panel, even though I just recently wrote about the Senators having lost 11 of their last 12 Saturday games going back to last season, including all 4 so far this campaign.
They must be due, right? Maybe...
