I have a confession to make: I’ve never seen an NHL game live. I always figured that if I said this out loud someone might revoke my Canadian citizenship, but you won’t tell anyone will you?
Sure, I’ve been to events at the arena where the Sens play (the most recent one that comes to mind is Oprah). But I guess I’m just cheap when it comes to watching live sports.

For instance, a Level 100 ticket to see the Ottawa Senators play against the Minnesota Wilds is priced at $123.61.

Don’t get me wrong — I know my family and I would have a great time and wonderful memories would be made. But, you know, it makes it hard to commit.
Do you feel the same way? Well, then read on, because I have GOOD news for you! Remember those 100-level tickets I just told you about? Well, you can win them!
