This is something I have been trying to do up here in Rochester. Pretty much all my buddies these days are post-HS friends, so they had nothing to do with Cuse. I try to make at least three games a year and I try to bring a different buddy to each one in an attempt to get them hooked. I think there might be a shot that I can convince one, and maybe two of them, to get season tickets with me next year.
I still stand by the statement that if 20,000 people go to the dome and bring just one person with them, we get a nice crowd of 40,000. It isn't hard and it isn't expensive. The problem is that many of the people who would be the ones to try something like this already have season tix, so they have been sitting in their carved out space for a decade or two. Making it tough to invite somebody.
