During Saturday's watching party outside American Airlines Center I kept noticing one brave St Louis Blues fan, decked out in his blue jersey and hat. Turns out his name is Jeremy Wright. Jeremy was the perfect subject for WFAA Channel 8's recent story of Blues fans being "iced out" of tickets to the Dallas Stars home playoff games this Monday and Wednesday. Turns out any Blues' fans living in Missouri attempting to purchase playoff tickets from the Dallas Stars received this message: Sales to the Dallas Stars 2019 Home Playoff Games at American Airlines Center, will be restricted to residents of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Residency will be based on credit card billing address. Orders by residents outside of this area will be canceled without notice and refunds given. According to WFAA's article, the Stars said it is not an effort to keep out opposing team fans, but rather an attempt to minimize re-sellers from around the country accessing tickets before local fans. Makes sense but if you're a Stars fans you gotta love the so-called unintended consequences for Blues' fans. Jeremy said he and his friends will find a way inside the AAC this week, even if it means using his Texas based credit card to buy the tickets.
