I'm not in the Pittsburgh area anymore, so I don't get a feel for the talk and what's going on in the local media and what not. But I am coming in town this weekend and am planning on going to the game Friday. My question is...Is there any talk there about moving the time of the game Friday night?
I ask this because Game 7 of the Stanley Cup is Friday night as well and not only are the Penguins in it...but so are the Red Wings (we play the Tigers). I would imagine that if the game is played at 7 PM, there will be about 500 people in the stands and about 4 or 5 people watching the game combined from both markets.
On the other side, I would find it a pretty bad marketing strategy to move a Friday night game when that is most likely the prime opportunity to attract fans, but in this circumstance, it might be wise to move the game to the afternoon.
I really want to go to all 3 games this weekend while I'm in town, but I'm not going to lie, I'd rather skip a Pirates/Tigers game in order to go to Carson Street and watch the Pens win Game 7...
