Back to the BAC


I went to the game in Tampa Saturday and sat 4 rows behind our team.  One thought that I couldn't shake was that being my first trip to the St. Pete Times Forum, I was sure when approaching from outside, that I was at an arena where hockey is the primary object being promoted.  Of course, during the game the Bon Jovi promotion came on as they play there the night before BAC.  That's good I said to myself, "they have concerts at The TB Lightning arena."  Then I thought, what is the BankAtlantic Center?

Is it a facility built to house an NHL Hockey team and its secondary function is for other events or is it a concert facility that has hockey games played there secondarily?  I'm really not sure. 

The Tampa Bay Lighning facility is an NHL facility that has concerts.  Just look around "Bolts everywhere" inside and outside. 

The BAC:  A Concert Facility that has the "occasional hockey game" unless you are a Season Seat Holder and know better.

A stranger would never know that the primary purpose of the BAC is to house the NHL Panthers Hockey Team.

There is no confusion of that type at the St. Pete Times Forum in my opinion.
