I'm off to bed as well but man oh man I think Dallas might be good competition for this. I don't live in DFW anymore but I did try to go to as many Rangers games as I could year in and year out. I've never been to an NFL or NBA game so I can't speak to the crowds at either of the Cowboys stadiums or Mavericks' arenas but Rangers.. man... here's a stat (numbers estimated because I'm too tired to bother looking them up)agree to disagree. this convo is going nowhere. g'night
Opening Day this year was also the home opener: damn near 50K tickets sold and I'm sure close to that in the seats.
Game 2: 1/2 that.
It'll be more like that the rest of the season until the likes of the Yankees and Red Sox and whoever the hot team is at the time make their way through Arlington. if the Rangers happen to run out a 10 game winning streak then more will show up. That will last until about mid June when it gets too to go to day games in Arlington.
Dallas Stars: for several years the true fans always have sold out the 3rd tier of the AAC..the nose bleeds. Most of whom you see at AAC if you watch Stars versus anyone else are those who are there to be seen and not necessarily hockey fans. Now, it's not true of everyone because I love sitting in the lower bowl when I can get to a game (3 hour commute is a bit tough) If the Stars' recent re-hire of Ken Hitchcock actually turns out to be a good decision then I expect to see more people going to Stars games because we all remember who was coach in 1999 (Hitchcock. Stanley Cup) and also who the star player was at the time (Mike Modano, possible staff addition..only time will tell) and everyone wants to see Mike Modano and Ken Hitchcock back together again.
