Wonk-nation

I was reading this blog post out there discussing the magnitude of "Steelers Nation". The comments were interesting... we must have the most wonkish sports fans out there if people are discussing population trends and demographic when debating NFL football. I was not sure there would have been anything to pass on except this line where it says:
"...(Washington) Capitals owner Ted Leonsis once tried to place a block on the team's website preventing fans in Western Pennsylvania from purchasing tickets to playoff games in Washington. "

I had never heard that before. It goes on to say that the attempt to block us from our right of free trade failed since they couldn't block POTS ticket purchases.... and I would love to see some of the cyber-experts in town take on the Washington Capital ticket purchasing ticket system anyway. It just wouldn't be a fair fight.

It has been reported that the Chargers have tried to do the same thing for NFL playoff games.

I remember when it happened for the Capitals. It was pretty amusing.
