For me, it's all about the atmosphere, seeing the team up on stage. I will be there and I don't care who the bands are, it's live music, it will be great, a celebration of our team coming back

I agree. Unfortunately, you can't please everyone. There will always be those who see the glass as half empty....sucks to be them.

I don't see it that way.

Think of having a BBQ on the nicest day of the year where you serve the best cuts of steak and have all of the fixing and sides you can imagine.

But then you only serve your guests piss warm 10 year old O'Douls non-alcohol beer to drink because you got it really cheap and your great-uncle likes it.

Would you be surprised that many of your guest might say something about that or at least be disappointed?

I am just surprised that everything around the Jets so far has been top notch... but then the big kickoff party for everyone seems really crappy and cheap.

The NHL is putting on the kick off party, not True North. so you can blame them for it not being top notch enough for you.

What may be crappy to you, will be great for others. Again, you can't please everyone. I will be going because I love this city and love supporting it.

Bingo. I think the event being staged by True North is the post game social staring Blue Rodeo.

I expect Blue Rodeo is not top notch enough for some people.

However, if this was in Calgary the Beatles, U2, Beethoven and Micheal Jackson would be appearing.

You sir sputnik, are an ageist a$$hole.

Why is this post green?
