The Penguins are Total Sellouts!

Wasn't it not too long ago that hockey in Pittsburgh was declared 'dead'?

Hmm, it appears that the sport has suddenly come back to life.

Want seasons tickets? Too frickin bad!

From the Pittsburgh Business Times:
The team put out a statement Thursday saying it is approaching the 13,500 mark for sales of season ticket packages that combined, represent season ticket orders for all 43 home games, including two preseason games.

Fed by interest in a new arena and a roster of talented younger players, the Penguins have eclipsed a previous record of 12,350 full-season ticket packages that was set during their Stanley Cup Championship days back in 1992-1993.

Because of the record sales, the team said it is cutting off full and half-season sales and establishing a waiting list for season tickets. Fans who wish to be on the waiting list will be required to lay down a $200 deposit, the team said.

Waiting list? Wow... like Eric over at The NHL Fanhouse, I am blown away at just how hot an item that Penguins tickets appear to be.

And, to think, that some idiots didn't think hockey would ever work in Pittsburgh. HMPH!
