If you buy tickets to Nashville’s first home game, the second one is free

Another team has offered up fan incentives to make amends for the lockout — and once again, PHT is impressed.

(And slightly jealous.)

The Nashville Predators have unveiled their “Friends & Family Special” for the opening two home games of the regular season, a promotion that will likely draw a lot of attention.

The deal works like this:

– Buy a ticket to Nashville’s opening-night game
– Get a free ticket to Nashville’s next home game
– Get 50 percent off all soda and certain domestic draft beer for both games
– Get $1 hotdogs during the second game

There’s also the chance to win a new Nissan Sentra, merchandise giveaways and a pre-game party prior to the home opener.

Earlier, we passed along mention of two other teams — Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay — offering up fan incentives for this abbreviated season, which included a pretty good promotion from the Lightning, who were selling a limited number of season tickets for $200.

This Nashville deal is almost as good. You get two tickets for the price of one, with both games featuring half-price beer, and hotdogs at the second game cost one dollar.

The $1 hotdogs will get you every time. Even the staunchest lockout griper loses some edge over the prospect of dollar dogs. It’s like “Man, these guys are just a bunch of greedy bas…Oh man, sauerkraut, yes, absolutely.”
