Fans who wear pink to the game will be entered to win a 2012-13 team-signed jersey by picking up a raffle ticket on the concourse behind Section 126. There, fans can also participate in the puck draw or bid on one of 42 unique items at the silent auction.

Six of the players’ significant others will be selling pucks as part of the mystery puck draw when doors open. For $25, fans will have a chance to draw from an assortment of 300 hockey pucks signed by members of the 2012-13 team. Each puck has been signed by a Red Wings player and packaged in a black box to conceal the autograph.

The fan who opens the box with a puck signed in gold by Jimmy Howard will meet the Red Wings starting goaltender after the game, while the fan who opens the box with a puck signed in silver by Howard will receive a one-of-a-kind autographed and framed 8” x 10” photo of the goaltender using a stick with pink hockey tape at the 2011 BCA Night.

Players will wrap their sticks with pink hockey tape for use during the pregame warm-ups on Tuesday. These items will then be autographed as the players exit the ice and auctioned off on the concourse.  In addition to the sticks, other unique autographed game-used memorabilia and experiential packages available at the concourse auction include:

  •     Framed piece with three 8” x 10” photos signed by Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and former captain Nicklas Lidstrom

I bought a workhorse laptop, a big 17-inch HP. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty close. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Yeah, I remember what you said on FB about what you required to do your work.  The first thing I said after reading that long laundry list was, “Processing Power.”

Congrats, George.  Hope it works out well for you.

Intel i7 processor. 8GB of Ram is serviceable…Was the most I could get for under $1K, regrettably, but I’ve got a big hard drive, a massive processor, a superb motherboard and the kind of software and hardware necessary to do my job—which requires having 80-100 Firefox tabs, Tweetdeck and sometimes other applications up for as long as 12-14 hours some days.
