Blackhawks and Bulls look to make the post season
Heading into the new year, both of the teams that call Chicago’s United Center home are trying to get back into playoff contention. Five years removed from their half decade of dominance, the Blackhawks have won five of their last six to get to where they can at least see the last wild card spot. Goalie Robin Lehner and the always amazing Patrick Kane have led the way. IF a few of their teammates can pick up their games, and lady luck shines on them, it should be a fun stretch drive.
The Bulls, on the other hand, have spent the first half of the season spinning their collective wheels (as usual). Zach Levine, Kris Dunn (pictured), Laurie Markkanen and the rest will have to get thing figured out quickly, or it will be another early trip to the golf course.
What does this have to do with Chicago Mini Bus Tours and how can it help you? Well…
Tickets for the Bulls games, for many years expensive and hard to get, have become almost the opposite. Several games have featured crowds of less than 14,000, in a 20,000 seat arena. Ticketmaster, StubHub or the UC box office all are great options.
The Chicago Blackhawks games are still always sold out. That’s what winning 3 Stanley Cups in 6 years will do for a team. Thing is, before last season, you’d be able to go to a site like StubHub or Vivid Seats and wind up paying close to double the face price. Now, most games have plenty of seats going for about 1/2 of face value. Good for you. Bad for the season ticket holder who has listed the tix online.
Improvements to the United Center itself have been very impressive. Just the show that surrounds the games makes it worth a visit.
