During the NHL lockout last season, hockey starved fans turned towards local minor league teams to get their fix. Fans in the Dallas/Fort Worth area turned to the Fort Worth Brahmas of the Central Hockey League.
Yes, it's minor league hockey, which means the quality of play is significantly below that of the NHL. But with tickets in the $10 to $25 range, the Brahams are a very economical option. Plus, you can expect some zany in-game and between period promotions that in many ways, are worth the price of admission all by themselves.
