San Francisco Bulls

It’s Time For Hockey!

San Francisco BullsNo - the NHL and NHLPA did not resolve their labor dispute, but that doesn’t mean the San Francisco Bay Area will be without professional hockey.  The ECHL San Francisco Bulls start play this week with a FREE exhibition game this Wednesday, October 3rd (click here to get tickets, and tell them penaltykill.net is the season ticket holder that sent you) and the home opener on Friday, October 12th.

I freely admit that the NHL labor issues have been causing me so much stress that I’ve actually been indifferent to the idea of watching hockey this winter.  The San Jose Sharks have suspended all business so as a season ticket holder we do not know when our next ticket payments are due.  With no access to the tickets we also cannot put our extra games up for sale.  And since the season can start without any warning we might not have enough lead time to successfully sell some of the earlier games.  Granted these are the risks when you make this kind of commitment, but as a customer I don’t feel I should have to take on any extra financial burdens.

But over the weekend we went to watch the Bulls practice and I’ll tell you, seeing the Bulls skate on that ice got me excited all over again.  And being able to drive to the Cow Palace in 15 minutes is a benefit of a magnitude I can’t express with words.  Frankly I couldn’t care less if the NHL cancels the whole season because there’s another game in town and they wear orange, black and gold!

The boys gathered around the coach.

The Bulls expect a to play at least a handful of Sharks.

In case you forgot, this is what hockey tickets look like.
