Wings stuff on clearance at Dick's

27 July 2014 - 10:30 PM

Stopped into our local Dick's Sporting Goods and stumbled on two clearance rack of shirts, pullovers, sweatshirts, coats, hats, socks, and some jerseys. Items were 50-75% off the lowest ticketed price and most of the stuff had been previously marked down. I got a Franzen WC Jersey for $34, and a embrodered heavy winter coat for $54. I added it up at home and we got $856 of originally priced stuff for $206!
The store's name is the common nickname for "Richard". :)


Remember when the Pens locked out Michigan ticket buyers?

Remember when the Pens refused to sell tickets to anyone with a Michigan ZIP code for the Finals in an effort to keep their "red" from ruining their "white out" home games?  Well, hopefully this will put an end to the practice: Can Sports Teams Keep Rival Fans Away?

 

 

When Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman crushed the Super Bowl dreams of 49ers fan John E. Williams III, Williams wasn't there to see it in person. For that, he wants $50 million.

 

Williams filed suit this month against the Seattle Seahawks, the NFL, and Ticketmaster; he's alleging the practice of restricting ticket sales to residents of certain states is a violation of federal law.

 

For January's NFC Championship game in Seattle, the Seahawks limited online ticket sales to credit card holders who lived in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Hawaii, and some parts of Canada. Williams, a diehard 49ers fan and Las Vegas resident, couldn't buy himself a ticket—exactly what the Seahawks intended.
