Let me start by saying I am a hockey fan. While I have some favorite teams (Predators, Hurricanes, Maple Leafs) I really do love the sport. At the same time I understand a little bit about the business world.
I went to the Predators vs. Flames game on Saturday night with my buddy, Stuart. There were many empty seats in the building. Heck, there were empty sections! We could have moved down to sit on the glass if we wanted to. If Nashville (and by Nashville I mean regular fans and most of all local business owners) can’t fill an arena on a Saturday night against a team that has regularly gone to the Stanley Cup playoffs then we don’t deserve to have a hockey team. And if they move I might have to uproot the Extrovert/Introvert family and head north!
Okay, I feel a little better now. I needed to get that off of my chest.
