(formerly bee dat, hornets thing of past) 303 it is! nice to see you and ed there to you today jason, and looking forward to seeing 303 rocking and rolling this year!
Glad I could finally meet a few of the crew today at select a seat! When the season start, I better here yall loud and clear up there in 303! Should be a great year for the Hornets, and I am glad to be a part of it. Curious too see how season ticket sales stack up after the weekend. If yall get the number, please share!
LMAO @ edbbuyin. The "ed b ...." theme is always something you excel in being creative with Mr. Jason. Gla to hear the numbers are coming back better than expected. Tomorrow will be the key day as we see how much "general public" interest the team has. Same with the Saints STH interest in becoming Hornets STHs. It'll be nice if by the season we have 12k strong, but that may be a stretch in this market.
I know some but it's best to speak when things are all done up proper. I will tell you I was pleasantly surprised by both the numbers leading up to today and with I heard today. Not everyone is as ballin as edbbuyin, but folks are getting their tickets. I told Joe a while back that I didn't think we'd be near 10,000 this season. I thought a lower number. Going into today, they were close to my upper end that I'd puzzled out looking at historical data. Between the balcony buster grandfathering and various forms of excitement prior to the draft, they were already approaching my upper end. Davis may put them close to 10,000. I'm not sure it'll get to Joe's optimistic level, but my pessimistic level may be about as off. This is, of course, one reason we have so many writers. Cover those bases. Someone is right and someone gets their teeth kicked in, all for the pleasure of the readers. Rest assured that we'll be on top of the boring bad news that may arise. You guys can try your best to poke your head up out of the trenches and look around for actual basketball business to discuss. Finally.
Yeah, dude. Solid solid section. Last year at the watch parties I said it and recent events confirm it: This is the beginning of Hornets fans really being united in a superadditive way. In 20 years, the people doing things like Purple Hornet, Joe, Super Hornet, and less prominent people like the 303 crew (us, Mikey, Mike, Steven, Justin, Mr. Ray and Mrs. Janice) will have laid the foundation of something beautiful. The nonlocal fans play a huge role (just like out walkabout Irishman), too, helping to unite us in communities like this, and also in make us know that we, in a very real and measureable sense, are the chosen few who represent a grand tribe. Or, in a tribute to Young Guns, pals. I'm pumped.
