She scores! Judge orders man to give up Jets season tickets to sister-in-law

WINNIPEG - A judge has ruled that a man with season tickets to Winnipeg Jets games was skating on thin ice when he failed to hand them over to his sister-in-law.

John Longstaff's story in court was that he had told Darlene Gibb she could have the National Hockey League ducats when he died.

But Gibb said Longstaff promised her she could have the tickets after one season.

Longstaff, who is 73, was eligible for the seats last year because he already had season tickets with Winnipeg's American Hockey League team when the NHL returned to the city.

The judge sided with Gibb's story.

He noted that she and her son did everything possible to set up for the transfer, including paying for the tickets in full.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
