I live in Windsor, so for me a game would cost $7.50 round trip tunnel bus right to the Joe, then ~$30 for tickets upper bowl, blue line. I'm not quite 21 so usually I dont waste money on $8.75 beers. Sometimes I go and my beer tab runs up higher than the tickets or transportation to the game.

Anyhow, I cannot complain about the prices! A regular season Wings game for me costs about $40-45. :clap:


Not going to make it tonight, I usually try only for weekend games as the traffic at the border can be bad trying to get across during the week for a 7pm start.

I always seem to forget that public transporation hardly exist in the U.S, although i thought gas was very cheap when i was there last time, but i didnt drive a ford tundra or dodge ram or whatnot, food and beer you can easily avoid.. and you can get the cheapest tickets arent they like 30bucks?

Well, you're a much grater person than I am if you can drive 4.5 hours, watch a 3 hour game and drive another 4.5 hours and not eat anything. So yes, you need to include food.

But if you don't eat or drink anything you're still looking at 200 bucks in gas, 35 bucks for tickets, 20 bucks for parking. That's between 250 and 260 in costs if you do the bare minimum for people like me who don't live near Detroit.

After you turn 21, it's pretty hard to resist your first beer at the Joe.

Much attention for this game as it's the only game of the day in the nhl and will be broadcasted nation wide on versus and on TSN for canada... hope wings show up


TSN's website says TSN2. If I have Centre Ice/Sports Pack does that mean I'm not getting this game???

It seems like every game I go to is on VS. the last year or so. Looking forward to this one tonight. Hopefully we do a good job of bouncing back from that tough loss against Vancouver on Saturday.

Most people in Michigan are hard up for cash, though, too. So while 30 bucks plus gas and whatever may be "reasonable" relative to other sporting events and whatnot it's still hard to justify the expenditures sometimes.

EDIT: And Michigan is a big state, so gas can REALLY pile up if you live outside of the Metro area.

I hope Franzen gets his 100th tonight. Rafs should have a good game, probably putting up at least an assist on the PP.

Thank God Doan is out, means our players are a lot safer haha.

Very true. They're $8 or so, but at least they're 20oz. Plus, beer is a game time necessity :beerbuddy:

I'm Chatham area so for me its pretty easy to scoop up game day tickets cheap on stub hub last minute. If its a friday and nothing is going on you can always try to pick up some tickets, get a car load of buddies, pay 5 bucks each for gas and about 30 for the tickets. We usually take the tunnel bus too so we only pay like5 bucks parking at the tunnel bbq.

Its pretty convenient, last year we scooped up tickets at 2 in the afternoon drove down and watched Franzen score those 4 goals in the playoffs against the sharks. The tickets we got were under 40 dollars :thumbup:

Damn if i lived anywhere in michigan i would go to every other game or so


Me too, Mindfly. I'd willingly give up other stuff I'm used to having to do just that. And when I read where posters ***** about the same old music, etc. at every game I cannot help but roll my eyes. :blink:

THANK YOU.

Hopefully Jovo still has whatever illness he had to keep him out of the lineup.

Wings traditionally struggle mightily first game back after a western road trip.....I'm nervous.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

If Jovanovski does play, I wouldn't be surprised to see pushing and shoving between him and Bertuzzi like in the playoffs.

I wonder if the JLA faithful will start booing hudler soon, or is that only in canada/montreal/europe/soccer they do that when a player sucks, i think some boo's would light a fire under hudler's ass, he didn't take sitting in the pressbox seriously enough...i bet holland regret he signed his sorry ass
