Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mary Agnes Welch of the Winnipeg Free Press,
Jets fan J.J. Moorehead is using the overkill approach to score NHL season tickets today.
At noon, Moorehead will create his own NASA ground control, surrounding himself with three computers—his fiancée’s desktop and two laptops. They’ll all be preloaded with his personal information so he can speed through the screens, press enter and hopefully score two season tickets to see Winnipeg’s new NHL franchise.
Even better, he’s going to steal an Internet connection from two neighbours in his apartment building who haven’t password-protected their wireless accounts….
Nearly every fan who gathered Friday night at the 4Play Sports Bar and Grill expressed a sense of genuine panic at the looming ticket frenzy. There are only about 5,800 season tickets left and exponentially more people vying for them. Everyone said they weren’t fussy about which “P”—for price point—their seats were in. They’d take anything. And they expected everything to be sold out by 12:30 p.m., if not earlier.
