Note from July 3, 2011 - Congrats NYR for signing Brad Richards!
Welcome, friends & Premier List partiers. This is my personal season ticket page for the New York J-E-T-S and Rangers!
I bought 2 season tickets for both teams immediately when they went on sale, which is why they're SO close to the action. I am a Jets & a Rangers fan, and feel great about their chances this year!
Regarding the Rangers, MSG is undergoing a massive, 100% renovation. You can read about it here. MSG will be closed for 5 months in the Summer of 2011, and by the start of the season the lower bowl will be completely redone.
Note - Pictures below taken from my 2nd Row Seats at Rangers/Red Wings game this year:
About my tickets: I am not a ticket broker, just a fan that can't attend every game.
Right now I'm just listing every game for sale, for both Jets & Rangers, with a few exceptions.
As to which games I can NOT attend, it wouldn't be a smart negotiating tactic to tell you that, except to say this.
I'd love to see the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks come to MSG on November 1. However, I will be exhausted from Halloween (our 2nd busiest weekend of the year besides New Years)!
3. Yes, I realize the tickets are expensive. Getting to sit in the actual 8th row (Jets) or 2nd row (Rangers) from the field/ice is not cheap. These are tickets you'll want to use to schmooze a client, impress a date, or give someone as a "wow" gift!
I can indesputably say that you'll pay 5-10% less here for comparable tickets than you will on Ticketmaster (Jets | Rangers) or the Season Ticket Exchange (Jets | Rangers). I linked them both so you can see for yourself.
I did that because I'll save on the fees I pay to sell them - and consequently, you'll be able to avoid those ridiculous broker fees as well by dealing with me directly! So, we both save!
I can email you the tickets for $2.95 (either team) and you can pay with a credit card, debit card or paypal. Or, come by our office on 40th & 9th in NYC, pay cash, pay no fee, and pick up the fancy season tickets I get from the teams. Either way, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212 785 3745.
Ticket Info: How to See the Blueshirts in the 2nd Row!
Any hockey fan knows that THE most important component to success is great goaltending. That's a huge reason why the NJ Devils have been successful for....going on 2 decades now. Martin Brodeur is - besides Patrick Roy - the best goalie I've watched play.
Well, while Brodeur is at the end of his prime, we've got the NHL's best goalie coming INTO his prime at age 28: Olympic Gold Medalist Henrik Lundqvist (pictured).
Lundqvist is healthy & there's no Olympics for him to be concerned with this year. It's his time to shine!
This year, Lundqvist has a good backup too (finally!) in Martin Biron, who the Rangers obtained in an offseason trade.
The Rangers have made the playoffs 4 out of the last 5 years, and have had a winning record each year! In short, while the Knicks go home every spring, the Rangers keep the lights on at MSG!
The Rangers return Superstar 42 goal scorer Marian Gaborik, fan favorite (and NYC nightclub regular) Sean Avery, Chris Drury, Olly Jokinen, young Ryan Callahan - and have added key newcomers Mats Aasen, Alexander Frolov and enforcer Derek Boggaard. NOTE - remember Boggaard's name, you'll love this guy, as I can attest from watching Minnesota Wild games last year on the NHL Extra Ice package!
Anyway - the seats! Through opportunism and luck, I'm in the 2nd row - completely unobstructed, just an amazing view. For tickets, contact me at email@example.com or 212 785 3745.
Check it out on the seating chart - the seats are on the 2nd row of Section 40, see the blue dot:
Click here to see how the ice looks from the perspective of being there - just click on Section 40, and scroll with your mouse left & right to see the sightlines.
I learned that the photo linked above was shot from the 6th row, so you'll be 4 rows closer to the action!
Now - here's the Rangers home schedule, with the price PER ticket next to each game. The face value of each ticket online (before surcharges, delivery, ticket broker markup, etc) is $206.75.
