Season hockey ticket holder. Just got my letter indicating I can buy unlimited tickets for the Big Chill. Here's my dilemma. As a general rule, I don't allow fans of the opposing team to use or buy my tickets, but I wan't to have a large group go to the game and invite friends and family to buy tickets if they are interested.

Any other all time favorites out there in MGoBlog land?
