Regionals there draw well but sometimes people overestimate

  In reply to: There should always be a regional in St. Paul  posted by Nihilist In Golf Pants

just how well. Last years, featuring both Minnesota and St Paul, failed to sell enough tickets to open the upper deck. In 2010 the regional there drew even less. I constantly hear how every regional held in the Twin Cities will sell out, especially if one of the big three WCHA fanbases is involved. It's not true. Other than for one or two marguee events in a sport (such as the FF or the WCHA Final Five in hockey) live sports just ain't the attraction they used to be. The only sport that has yet to succumb to this trend is the NFL.
