Tell the Stars You're Upset

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...

mailto:starsindividualtickets@dallasstars.com

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,

Randy Charles Morin

Sports Trivia Posers
You have to love sports trivia posers. Now, admittedly I'm also wrong on sports trivia once in awhile, but I'm amazed how many people will sit at a bar and BS their friends to death on sports trivia.

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.

Ten-Jack Starting Hands

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.

Notre Dame and Colts

On November 1st, I'm going to the University of Notre Dame versus Pittsburgh game. Then on the 2nd, I'm going to the Indianapolis Colts versus the New England Patriots. Should be fun!

TicketFeeder
This is a paid review.
 
TicketFeeder.com is a great source for sold out and premium Concert Tickets. They have lots of tickets for all the locations on the current Madonna tour. They appear to have tickets for every major North American concert tour venue; Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, En Vogue, Tina Turner and much more. Beyond concert tickets, they also have tickets for all the major sports events and even Broadway theatre plays like Phantom of the Opera, Wicked and Grease. I looked up tickets for the November 2nd Colts-Patriots game, which I'm considering attending and they had great tickets at better prices than StubHub. For the November 1st Notre Dame versus Pittsburgh game, they also had tickets in almost every section of the stadium. I also found tickets for this weekend's Toronto FC Major League Soccer game versus the Chicago Fire. That's a tough find.
 
You can chat online or call their 1-800 number, if you need help or have special needs. You pay for the tickets by using you credit card number, but don't worry, they have a secure website to make certain nobody is stealing your credit card information. TicketFeeder gets their tickets from season ticket holders and individual ticket owners. They also guarantee that all tickets are authentic. Check it out!
