Interested in seeing some actual ATMOSPHERE at the Pepsi Center? Then follow me on March 5th...

The Colorado Avalanche are not having a good season. I don't think I'm throwing anything out of left field with that accusation, but it's still astonishing how badly this team is making out in just about every area. Obviously they're not having that great a year on the Ice, but they're not having much luck with injuries, player morale or attendance either. And since the attendance has died such a slow and painful death the past few years, any semblance of atmosphere that you could find at an Avs game at The Can is pretty much null and void at this point.

I'm pretty sure we're all aware here that I'm a pretty big fan of the hometown football club, the Colorado Rapids. Hell, I run their SBnation affiliate blog in addition to my writing duties here. Anyone who knows a thing or two about the Rapids and their home stadium Dick's Sporting Goods Park - colloquially referred to as 'The Dick' - will know about the supporters terraces. Two stacks of bleacher-like seating on the end of the stadium where 500-1000 fans every game stand, sing as one and generally go for drunken and noisy lunacy every minute of every match.

One of the two groups who man those terraces is the Bulldog Supporters Group, the group that I personally belong to. We're taking over the Pepsi Center for one night. A gang of us will be filling section 374 and we will be doing what we do best - making some noise. You'll hear singing, you'll see flags waving, you'll probably see me get arrested for sneaking a cowbell in there... you'll see some atmosphere. The Sons of Ben supporters group for the Philadelphia Union tried this a few days ago to great success, so it should be fun.

If there's a game you should go to this year, it's this one. If you'd like to see what would happen if Hockey fans were as involved in the game as their footballing brethren, catch this match. It would be great if the BSG weren't the only ones in there.

Want to be in the center of the action? You can still buy a ticket today - the deal making the tickets $22 ends tomorrow - to sit stand with us. Either way, this game should be entertaining; if not on the ice, than in the crowd.
