Not to start an argument...but I only agree with you if they were season ticket holders. To change seats for a game would have been a pretty reasonable thing to do.

But otherwise, people pay a premium for aisle seats. If those people bought them on ebay, craigslist, or ticketexchange...paid extra to make sure they had aisle seats...and only go to a couple of games a year...i would understand their reason for wanting to stay in the seats they paid for.

There is a company that has the season ticket seats, and this guy and his son probably go to at least 5 games a year.

Its over and done with now, the SRO seats werent all that bad tho. I just hope I can sit this weekend!! :roll:


I share your pain kinda. I'm 6'4-6'5 and the average seat sucks for me. My knees are always up in the back of the person in front of me. I hate doing that to people.

Getting into Columbus around 12-12:30...checking in at the Red Roof...then we just plan on checking out the area. Will definitely end up at R-Bar by 4 or so for the pre-game.

Anyone recommend other places for lunch/drinking that we should check out before the R-Bar?? Preferably somewhere that would have college football on.

I personally like Scmhitts in German Village. Not walking distance by any stretch but it's directly south of the arena. Good German food but damn if it isn't always crowded.

Not sure about football being on there...

Ted's Montana Grill in the Arena District has fabulous burgers (and the choice of beef vs. bison). I'm sure the bar area will have college football on. We tried that place last year for the first time and loved it...this year we are definately going back.

We're driving over Friday afternoon. Probably head to the arena district around 4-5ish on Saturday to get a few drinks before the game.

I don't think they are, though I did see some of those when I was looking through. They are a few rows from the rop of the rink haha, but I'm used to that from F level all the years in the Igloo.

There were quite a bit of SRO tickets showing available too when I was looking.

Just need to book a hotel now through priceline... and all should be good to go.

Going but Not sure where I'm sitting...some Jagoff has my tickets and has not told me the seats.Haha...but doing a double Triple header. Pens-Thrashers Thursday, off work Friday and going to Wheeling for some scrub hockey overnight package, then to Columbus Saturday. Columbus tickets and hotel room was paid for by the sale of my 3rd Winter Classic Seat. I kept the pair and sold the third for this very reason and to avoid having to "pick" the third wheel.

Arena parking. We are staying at a Red Roof Inn, which is about 20 minutes away in Dublin. 50$ after taxes wasn't too shabby. Paid 15$ to get pre-paid parking at the arena lot A

Got the parking pass from

Welp, Stubhub gave me an est delivery of Dec 1. So I check fedex now just to find out. Turns out they were left at my house on the 24th. I haven't seen them. Customer service is contacting FedEx to talk to the courier and calling the selling tmw to "See if there is any chance for a refund" Want to take bets on if there is?? :roll: She said they are not allowed to put it in the mailbox becuase its not US Postal, my screen door is always locked so he couldn't have left it between the doors, and the only other place is under the mat. Not there. I take it I dont have too many other options right now other than accept being screwed? Not to mention, they would have come in a flat cardboard FedEx thing right? So theres no way I would have mistakenly thrown that away. They wouldn't just leave it sitting on the ground would they, to just blow away? Needless to say I'm pretty :scared: :scared: :scared: right now.

Wouldn't something like that normally need a signature anyways. That's just odd. Hope it works out for you.
