Here is what to expect for the Eastern Conference Finals on the home front:
Hurricanes Warning Siren:
Game 3: Bates Battaglia, one of the Hurricanes all-time fan favorites
Game 4: Bill Cowher, super bowl champion and HURRICANES supporter
Game 6 (if necessary): TBD
Thank you for the suggestions last time. Bates was a very popular suggestion and Cowher has become a playoff staple and is a great Hurricanes supporter!
Front Lawn Party
All of the front lawn parties will begin at 5:00 p.m. They will include the band, inflatables, street hockey, 99.9 the Fan, face painters and food and beverage for purchase. 99.9 the Fan ESPN radio is scheduled to broadcast live before Game 4 and 6 (if necessary).
NEW for this round will be the addition of a 40 x 100 foot tent on the front lawn. The covered area is going to have TV’s that will allow for fans without tickets to view the games with fellow Caniacs. Food and beverage will be available for purchase.
Parking Lots will open at 2:30 p.m. before each Eastern Conference Finals game. Ron the Ref and members of the Eye Care Associate Storm Squad will be driving around in the golf cart before the games with posters and Koozies from the Kids N’ Community Foundation.
Closing thought - The beard-a-thon: 48 hour push to $55,000
is coming to an end (FRIDAY @ Noon, but you can still bid after!) IF you really want to sponsor someone but just can’t find a viable candidate I suggest you sponsor ME!
If everyone that reads this blog sponsored $1, that would increase my total by $7. = ) Who is with me?!?!?
Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!
