Why should you win Winnipeg Jets season tickets? Growing up in the north end of Winnipeg, Jets games were not priority for the family but Dad jumped at every chance to get free tickets from friends/family when they couldn't make it. I remember parking 20 minutes away in St. James on some side street so we didn't have to pay at the parking lots. When I started playing hockey I needed a jersey for practice so I traded some hockey cards to Bo V. for an 80's jets jersey. That same first year of hockey, while wearing my jets jersey for outdoor practice at Sinclair Park, my coach brought us goalies a surprise, BOB ESSENSAS glove & blocker from the previous year( Vaughn T&B2000, I still remember). Then in 2010, I took Dad down to Columbus, Ohio to watch former Jet great Scott Arniel in his first year of NHL head coaching. We wore our Jets shirts and chanted "Go Jets Go". I ended up with the 50/50 and got onto the jumbotron repping the Winnipeg Jets, to which the crowd booed. But we got a ton of high fives after the game anyway. I can't think of hockey without all the great memories flooding back. Now bring back OUR JETS!!!!
