"What we've got to do is continue to build our fan base. We can't just have our hand out to the league. The season-ticket base is key. We have to continue to build it, and it would be a hell of a lot easier to do if we play better."
- John Davidson, President of Hockey Operations, Columbus Blue Jackets
as quoted in the Columbus Dispatch (December 12, 2013 edition)
All joking and snark aside, at least Davidson talks like He Gets It. Here's hoping that selling season tickets becomes a lot easier in Columbus over the months and years ahead.
Happy 2014, everyone!
