This morning there was an ad on ESPN.com’s NHL page that caused me to do a double-take: ticket reseller StubHub seemed to already know what days the Caps’ Round 2 games would be. Whaaaaa?
This news, of course, could be of interest to the Capitals, the NHL, their fans, right? But looking at the game dates, how likely is it that the Caps’ Round 2 Game 1 is tomorrow night, April 28? Not very—approximately 20 hours’ notice to ticket-holding fans would be ludicrous . . . not to mention the Caps’ opponent, whichever team that may be, is playing tonight and would likely appreciate a day off between rounds.
Like history’s most famous soothsayer Nostradamus, StubHub seems to have pulled their prognostications out of, erm, we’ll go with “thin air.”
