Hello to all here at Fear the Fin. I come to you today not to discuss whatever the latest trade cooking between the Sharks and Wild might be, or to argue who won or lost the three trades this summer. No, I am here with a different goal in mind.
You see, when the Sharks traded for Brent Burns, they got one of the largest supporters of military families currently walking the planet. He also happens to be heavily involved in Defending the Blue Line, a charity you may have heard a great deal about after the passing of Derek Boogaard.
This brings us to the point of this post. Brent Burns bought four tickets to every Minnesota Wild home game, and allowed DTBL to give those tickets away to military service members and their families. He is going to continue that effort by moving "Burnzie's Battalion" to HP Pavilion.
There are four tickets to each and every game, and signing up to get them is easy. Simply follow the link HERE, or go to DefendingTheBlueLine.org and click on "NHL Tickets" in the top menu bar. If you have any questions, or would like to know more about the organization, you can find me over at my stomping grounds at Hockey Wilderness, or email me directly at bryan(at)defendingtheblueline(dot)com.
Defending the Blue Line is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization created by soldiers with the spirit of keeping hockey alive for the children of our nations military heroes.
Our mission at Defending The Blue Line (DTBL) is ensuring that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey. We accomplish this by providing free equipment for military kids, hockey camps, special events, and financial assistance for registration fees and other costs associated with hockey.
