Blue Jackets Apologize For Lockout By Wearing “Thank You Fans” Jerseys

Out of all the apologies that have been issued to NHL fans for the lockout, this seemingly small gesture by the Blue Jackets goes a long way. They wore jerseys reading “Thank You Fans” during warm-ups prior to their home opener against the Detroit Red Wings. Something about printing it on the backs of the players makes it a little more meaningful and worthy of attention. It’s also a very smart and strategic move by their management to endear themselves to their rapidly dwindling fan-base. Rumor has it they were offering 2-for-1 tickets, food vouchers, and free goodies just to rein in some fans for opening day. Poor Blue Jackets…but Hey! They’ve come away with at least a point in both games so far. That’s more than can be said about a dozen other teams.
