[sarcasm]Shockingly[/sarcasm] the Bahama Pro Show will not be arrving in Halifax to play. Instead the Atlanta Vision will be playing on Friday and Saturday at the Metro Centre. Here’s the e-mail I recieved from the Rainmen front office:
(Halifax, N.S.) The Halifax Rainmen organization has been forced to make two 11th hour schedule changes due to a significant development with the scheduled opposition team. Tonight’s game versus the Bahamas All-Pro Show has been rescheduled for Saturday March 15 at 7:15 p.m.
Tomorrow night’s game will take place as scheduled with a 7:15 p.m. tip-off. The visiting team for both match-ups will be will be the Atlanta Vision not the Bahamas All-Pro as scheduled.
“I cannot express enough my disappointment with the ABA at this point,” commented team owner Andre Levingston. “My utmost apologies go out to all of our supporters, fans and volunteers. We did everything we possibly could until the very last minute.”
Fans holding tickets for tonight’s game have the choice of exchanging them for Friday night’s game, or using their existing ticket for Saturday night, or receive a refund on their purchase. All exchanges or refunds must be processed at the Halifax Metro Centre box office.
This sucks but is actually a good thing on three fronts.
1) Atlanta are a better team so the games will be better and more enjoyable. Plus it’s better preparation for the play offs.
2) Friday and Saturday are better nights than Thursday and Friday to get people out.
3) If there was even the tiniest chance of the Rainmen sticking in the ABA it is 100% gone now. What a joke.
