Ladies and gentlemen, start your planning!

Was just reading this over on HF but wanted to post it here as well.

The Jacket Backers are organizing a road trip to Detroit on Saturday March 7th. I've had this date circled on my calendar for quite a while (after all my sister lives in Toledo so yeah...the kill two birds deal) so I'll definitely be in attendance.

Here are the details from the Backers site:

The Jacket Backers have a block of 40 tickets in Section 203.

Tickets are $54 for members and $74 for Non-Members. This is a ticket only event - no transportation provided.

To reserve your seats or for additional information please contact

I'd say its about time to turn the tables and invade the Joe for once Jacket fans.

Don't believe the hype that its hard to get tickets to the Joe either. If you aren't interested in the Backers deal give the Joe box office a call, check ebay or do the old fashioned ticketmaster deal.

Tickets are not hard to come by.

Its a tough economy out there but if you can swing it, it sure would be nice to see the Jackets represented in Detroit for this one!

There are some other juicy road trip dates out there as well.

There is the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, Feb 6th.

The Caronina Hurricanes on Saturday Feb 14th.

..and those wanting to make a vaca out of it there is the Florida swing that starts w/ the Panthers on Saturday Mar 21st and concludes in Tampa on Tuesday Mar 24th.

Also for those into this kind of thing, don't forget the Jackets fashion deal is tonight at the Hilton next to the Polaris Fashion Place mall. Show starts at 5:30.

'The Joe' is a must place to see a game! Went a few weeks ago when the Wings played the Sabres, my buddy is an avid Sabres fan and the Wings crowd was surprisingly respectable.
Now pre-Game hit HockeyTown, they shuttles to the game.
Postgame hit "The Post" a nice hockey hole in the wall where players have been known to show up! Cheers! Go Jackets!

Not sure about the Detroit game, but Jag and I will be in Pittsburgh next week!

Can't wait!

Go Jackets!

Hey, LTL nation! I have a pair of tix, in Row B, Sect. 201, for a great price, for tomorrow night's game against the Sens.

If interested, please reply with contact info, or email me at
Thanks for considering!

Yeah I am out for the Joe but there is a small group of us heading to Pittsburg next week. Friday morning Wheeling Island has a $40 poker tourney at 10:00 am and $1 Beer and Hot Dogs for the afternoon dog races. Perfect way to get ready to go to Pittsburg and get a win over the Penguins!

Also I think that we may have a couple extra tickets if anyone is interested.
