Need tix to Saturday's Panthers game? LBC may have the solution

It's a last-minute deal but as most of you know we rarely operate here with any more impressive efficiency: Litter Box Cats has a limited number of paired lower-bowl, read: good, seats for Saturday's Florida Panthers vs Carolina Hurricanes regular season closer from BankAtlantic Center - which could well feature a first-ever Southeast Division title for the Cats. Kinda big from what we're told. Word has it at this late hour the game is approaching a sellout, so this may be the perfect opportunity for you and a pal to get in the door. Details after the jump...

UPDATE, Sat/10am: Correct answer was 1,142. Winners have been notified. Thanks to all for playing; if still seeking seats for today's game give TiqIQ a spin.

Interested? Here's what we, ever the demanding basement-dwellers in a region devoid of basements, are asking of you:

  • How many FanShots - NOT standard front-page articles or FanPosts - have I (Donny) posted since LBC opened its virtual doors on November 17, 2008?/

The correct number falls between 500 and 1,500; be the first to email me ( - title your post "LBC Contest") with the closest guess without going over the actual number - The Price Is Right-style - and you win two seats. Submit your answer before 10 a.m. ET Saturday. That's it. Tickets will be immediately emailed to the winners (stocking up on ink would be a prudent move) around 10:15.

And yes, I can prove the actual total number of FanShots. High-tech stuff here.

These tickets are provided courtesy of a longtime friend of the club and our community to whom we are forever grateful. All we ask is that the winners consider purchasing an entry (starting at $3) into the 50/50 Lucky Ticket Drawing to benefit the Florida Panthers Foundation for Pediatric Cancer Research on the Plaza Level of the BAC. We're all familiar with their tireless efforts through the years; there is of course no obligation on your part but again, please keep them in mind. Who might win yet again :)

Have at it., and good luck...
