Blazer tickets are going fast! The Ace, Brian Warner, and I covered the Blazer ticket sales today. We were in the offices and the phone calls kept coming. They had close to two dozen people answering Phones and I didn't see one of them not handling a call while we were there.
The Blazers say they did more than one million dollars in new ticket sales the night of
the Blazer Draft Lottery. "Biggest single day in the history of the franchise period" said Mike Golub, Blazers Executive Vice President of Business Operations.
The phones keep ringing.
The Blazers have sold out all the 100 level tickets baseline to baseline. Only tickets in the corners are available at the 100 level.
Blazers G.M. Kevin Pritchard was in New York for the Draft Lottery and arrived back in Portland. "I haven't slept yet." Pritchard said. Now he has the job of deciding on Ohio State's Greg Oden or Texas sharpshooter Kevin Durant. "This is going to be a fun decision" said Pritchard, "The light's not just kind of flickering...it's shining bright right now."
Golub told me...Blazer fans who want tickets better jump on board...because the train is pulling out of the station.
