The Tampa Bay Lightning, along with The Fisher & Boy Morning Show on 97X, have recently offered Lightning fans the exclusive chance to join either the Zenon Konopka or Matt Smaby Fan Clubs. In a contest hosted during The Fisher & Boy Morning Show, the players vied to see who could generate the most fan club members, with the losing player serving a Subway lunch to the victorious player’s fan club. Zenon Konopka was declared the winner of the contest.
Due to popular demand, however, the Lightning, in conjunction with 97X and Subway, has extended the opportunity with a continuation of the contest set to run through the Olympic break.
Fans may enter to join either player’s fan club and cast their vote in the contest by purchasing a special ticket package to any of the remaining ten available home games on the 2009-10 schedule. The March 14 game against the Pittsburgh Penguins has been designated as a select blackout date and is not included in the offer. Ticket packages include a Matt Smaby or Zenon Konopka Fan Club T-Shirt, a meet and greet with Smaby or Konopka, an autographed photo card and entry into the Subway party with both players. Lower level packages are just $65 while the terrace level packages are only $20.
Fisher and Boy, hosts of The Fisher & Boy Morning Show, announced Konopka as the winner during this morning’s show. The lunch with the players will be hosted before the end of the season at a time and location to be determined. Fan Club members of both Konopka and Smaby will receive an invite to an upcoming lunch at Subway with Matt and Zenon. Smaby will serve lunch.
