Wanna see the Blue Jackets in Pittsburgh?

Just got this from Julie Mauer, president of the Jacket Backers (the official fan club of the Columbus Blue Jackets):
This was my work computer wallpaper for the longest time...
Sorry for the short notice, all - at the request of many, our Travel Committee has been trying to get a tickets-only trip together to Pittsburgh. We have learned that there are no tickets available for group purchase for the preseason game, but have just been offered the opportunity to purchase a block of tickets for the Tuesday, February 8th game in Pittsburgh at new-this-season CONSOL Energy Center at 7 pm ET. We need to act fast to be able to retain these tickets and need to hear from you immediately if interested.
The only available seats that the Pens have available for us are in section 120 at $135 per ticket not including any possible fees. We realize this is quite expensive and don't have the funds to front these seats. Therefore, if you are interested in traveling with the Jacket Backers for this game and are able to purchase your seats today, please contact Anne and Jeff Little at travel@jacketbackers.org with your name, email, and best way to reach you by telephone, to reserve your seats and make payment arrangements. Trip will hinge upon number of interested participants, so let us know IMMEDIATELY if you would like to go! Also, please email Anne and Jeff if you would like to be included in the next Travel Committee Meeting, date and time to be announced following our general planning meeting this Thursday.
Quite an offer, to get to see the Blue Jackets and the Penguins in the new arena in some pretty sweet seats.  Act now if you're interested!


  1. WOW... WTF? My wife and I joined the Jacketbackers at this past draft party. I've gotten ONE email since then (about Cannonefest). There's nothing about this on the JB website, was this an offer to select members or what?

  2. I take that back. I got TWO emails... in July.

  3. Anonymous - I just got the email about this ticket offer last night, and the club has been sending out emails every few weeks.

    The website is screwed up, but they're working on fixing it. You might try emailing or calling the club to ask if they have the right email address for you.
