Are you upset about the stupid court ruling? Then tell the NHL teams. I bought tickets to a Dallas Stars home game versus St Louis this year. I'm telling the Dallas franchise that I'm never doing that again, because they won't put a team in Hamilton. Go to the following webpage and find someone to email with your own negative thoughts...
Or send their ticket personel an email here...
Here's the email I sent them...
I bought tickets to the Dallas v St Louis game this year. I will never buy tickets to another Dallas home game until there's an NHL team in Hamilton.Thanks,

Today, I had that pleasure. First, the guy told his friends that Jean Beliveau won 15 cups as a player and two as an executive. I told him, it was only ten as a player and Henri Richard had 11. Then, he bragged to his friends that the U.S. Miracle on Ice game was actually a semi-final game and not a finals. I told him it was neither, rather it was a round robin system. He looked at me stunned, he clearly thought I was stupid. He then wondered with his friends where Canada was at that Olympics, but I knew he wouldn't believe me when I told him the Olympics didn't allow professionals back then. Finally, they started talking about the overpriced TFC versus AC Milan game this summer. I told them I thought it was Real Madrid and excused myself from any further conversation. Honestly, the average sports fan knows next to nothing of which he speaks.
The funny part is that these guys were older then me and should remember Jean Beliveau and the Miracle on Ice better than I. In fact, I never saw Beliveau play.
Almost everytime I play Texas-Holdem, somebody mentions that the jack-ten is one of the best starting hands. I make sure I play lot of hands with that person. While watching poker on TV at a bar today, the group next to me were applauding this guy for going near all-in preflop with a jack and ten. The other player had ace and ten. The flop was queen, ten, nine and both players quickly were all-in. "See, what did I tell you," said on of the bar dwellers. The turn was a king and the lesser ten-jay won. Brilliant!
The truth, AT (ace-ten) will beat JT (jack-ten) nearly 70% of the time. Even post flop, when the straight draw is near, the AT hand is still favored to win the hand. Don't believe me, check out the poker calculator.
All that said, the last tournament I was in, I was knocked out by JT versus AQ (ace-queen) on a rivered straight.
Versus has a great collection of NHL Playoff commercials up on YouTube.
Today, we agreed with Sinuate Media to promote the NHL Playoffs on Versus and Versus content. You'll find a Versus banner at the top of all the NHL pages for the month of May. Enjoy!
Here's a preview of the Sidney Crosby special on Versus tomorrow night.
