Promotions, Promotions And A Hockey Game Too

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

The Florida Panthers being hockey's first team to host a night for the LGBT community on Saturday has been well publicized. 

A secondary promotion held by the team has not been.

At best it seems like an odd pairing. 

Aside from the 'You Can Play Equality Night,' fans can pay $25 for a ticket to Saturday's game against the Minnesota Wild at BB&T Center in Sunrise as well as a pregame 'meet-and-greet' with Amanda Zuckerman and McCrae Olson from the CBS/Viacom reality show Big Brother 15. 

Zuckerman, who resides in South Florida, was one of the Big Brother houseguests who made headlines during last summer's show for making off-putting racial and homophobic comments.

In short - a little something for everyone. Ugh.

When your season tickets start at $7 a game and include free parking and a sweater, you’re doing something wrong.
