The gents behind the Florida Panthers’ marketing and ticket sales are at it again. In attempts to fill the BankAtlantic Center, the Cats are holding a pre-Purim party prior to the Washington Capitals’ game on Sunday, March 6th.
Quite brilliant, really: They’re marketing the leagues’ three-time Most Outstanding Player with a Jewish festival. Is there a better way to bring fans to see a team ranked 27th in the league in attendance than a costume contest, slapshot contest, and a band? And did I mention free parking?
So feel free to hop aboard a Jet Blue flight, because with a 4% Jewish population for the state of Florida as a whole, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to take advantage of the $15 tickets. While you’re down there, make sure to wear your new Dennis Wideman sweater.
