    I went to the football game at Bristol Motor Speedway. Nothing, and I mean nothing, could be worse than the seats I had that night.

    Another positive, is even if we miss the playoffs this year (in spite of likely putting together an awfully good season), they will probably tie at least some of the ticket sales for this event into small season ticket packages, so this type of event can still keep the momentum going. I'm just basing that on the fact I had to buy a 5 game plan to get first pick of seats for the Winter Classic.

    I've never been to Carter-Finley but this will definitely be my first game there

    Oh, and woe for the FCS schools that played there a week later and you might as well count the number of light bulbs in the grandstand light fixtures compared to those that attended.

    Anyway, I'm absolutely going to this. One; it will most definitely NOT be on national TV or discussed since it's the Hurricanes, and two; I do want to see North Carolina and pass through the Smoky Mountains as a "bucket list" item. Hopefully by then, I'll have gotten a car finally as... well, Greyhound sucks and the United States of America will never, ever adopt railroads as a viable means of transportation ever again.

    my wife and daughter found the train worked well from DC to Raleigh. Can’t sleep on it because the horn is sounding every 30 seconds but it wasn’t a bad trip.

    I wouldn’t recommend the Smokies in February. Even if there’s not a snow issue, there’s a good chance of just cold rain and terrible visibility.

    I could go over a lot of stories from that game, but I'll just say Bristol was woefully unprepared for a football game. They literally ran out of water in the first quarter after a full day of sunny 90 degree weather. And they were not prepared for everyone to filter into the stadium at once and had a 30-60 minute backup at more than a few gates as they tried to single file people through half staffed entry points. Just silly

    Oh it'll be on national TV. NBC has the rights to it and they'll have a national broadcast. They're obligated to do that. Whether they like it or not, we are getting a national game in Raleigh next year.

    Avoid the place like the plague but for this I will have to make an exception. Raleigh's time to shine.

    Hope it isn't too warm - that date's dipping into unofficial spring.

    :yo:

    Personally I'd like to see the game be against the Lightning. Yeah Caps makes sense but the Bolts have also never played in an outdoor game. Kill two birds with one stone and have it be against two Sunbelt teams. Plus I guarantee some blogger out there would write a hilariously bitter article about it.

    Either way I'm just glad it's happening. Hopefully it won't be unseasonably warm that day.

    When was the last time NBC/NBCsn even came to Raleigh? 2006 (which would have been well before the cable network)? I swear our one or two national games a year are always on the road. I think we had a little bit better track record with Versus.

    Edit: Nevermind, last years playoffs. Duh :facepalm:

    It would be incredible if our international contingent showed up.

    Said this before but I'll say it again, it is awesome having a governor who supports the sports teams in this state, especially the Canes. And, he's not wrong, lots of good business opportunities to come from this.

    So, could it in fact be the Lightning?

    Columbus? Don't think they've ever played outdoors. Pittsburgh?

    Just a guess but the opponent will be a warmer weather market. If the oppo was Columbus you would think the game would be there. The Lightning sounds right

    Some are speculating Pittsburgh with the JR connection plus the obvious national draw one assumes. Granted, I follow the Caps and don't hear much from that reporter and who knows if that source would know.

    Bolts or CBJ I'd be fine with. Pens have been in too many.
