Saturday's Dump & Chase: A Note To Bridgestone Arena Staff

Oli Scarff

You guys have a really hard job ahead of you this evening. I feel bad for you...I do. But you have some tools at your disposal to make things easier, right in your own arena policies. For example, visibly intoxicated patrons are not to be admitted to the arena. It's true...I looked it up. Drop the hammer on some of these people, why don't ya? Or maybe don't serve them inside the arena when they need to use the wall to hold them up while in line for a beer. Obstructing the view of other fans, with a 3-foot Indian headdress, for example, is also forbidden. Make 'em walk it back to the car. If you set the tone at the door, you'll be saving yourselves from A LOT of problems later. And hey, you might even make things a little more enjoyable for the people who show up the other 38 games a year. Thanks in advance for your help, and good luck.
