Dilemma in my household

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

So my dad and I are HUGE 'canes fans and we would love to get up to raleigh for a game but there's a little disagreement on what to do. He wants to try and get up there for Game 6, but I want to hold off and see if they make it to the SCF. Seeing as we live in Charleston we can't go to both rounds because of the expense, so I am asking for advice. Should I gamble or play it safe?

Gamble...I went to Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals in '06. Even though we lost, it was THE most electric atmosphere I've ever witnessed at a sporting event. Not saying conference finals wouldn't be sick, but Stanley Cup is a WHOLE different level.

I'd play the gamble with this team and wait it out till the finals.

It technically won't be a gamble because the Canes are going to win the ECF'S and you WILL get to see the Canes in the SCF'S!!! Wait it out and go to the SCF'S that's what I am doing.

you could wait and see how the first couple of games go, then make a better decision. but then again, tickets may be harder and more expensive to get. IMO

It's not gonna be cheap either way you slice it. Just try to make it up there... it's so much fun.

I got to see Jussi Jokinen's goal with .2 seconds left against NJ.:cool: Oooh say can Ju ssi?

If this one goes six games, go to Game 6. Start working overtime and selling stuff on eBay to help pay for Stanley Cup game, too. Never pass up such an opportunity.

I am kicking myself for oversleeping back on Friday morning and missing out on a shot at tix for game 2 in Pittsburgh this Thursday. I will just cry about it if we end up winning that one.

Would not wait long. Only thing avail through TicketMaster for Game 3 is $190 Standing Room Only tix.

Game 6 still has some tickets, but they will go quick if we take at least 1 game in Pitt.
