Goldie\'s Blog: South Florida Hockey Fans Welcome Their Newest Panthers

Fans Come Out to Eat, Purchase Season Tickets and Meet Auld, Allen & Bertuzzi

In July, in South Florida, you don't expect the type of hockey night we had Thursday at the BankAtlantic Center. Fans showed up in droves, estimates have it at about 1,700, in Sunrise to buy season tickets, eat for free and meet the newest Panther players. Welcome to Cats Cookout #3! While the burgers and hot dogs were being downed kids were on ice level playing street hockey and playing in bounce houses. Fans had the chance to sit in their actual seats in the arena and purchase full, half and 13 game season ticket packages. The night was a great success with energy and enthusiasm you would expect on opening night.

The highlight was Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan Allen and Alex Auld meeting the fans, signing autographs and being presented with their first Panther jersey from season ticket holders. All three are thrilled to be here and they are real good guys. The night was such a big hit...we are doing it again July 27th. If you haven't been to a Cats Cookout yet, come on down! And with the number of tickets being sold jump on your plan of chioce and lock in your seat. Remember, you get playoff ticket rights and for the first time in a while you're gonna need it!!! Until next time...
