Admirals Return Home for Two this Weekend
Mar 17, 2009
Milwaukee, WI – The first-place Milwaukee Admirals return home to the Bradley Center for a pair of games this weekend following their five-game, two week road trip. The fun and festivities begin when the Ads battle the Lake Erie Monsters on Friday, March 20th at 7:00 pm and continue on with a 4:00 pm matinee on Sunday, March 22nd against the Hamilton Bulldogs.
On Friday night the first 5,000 fans will take home a bobblehead of former Admiral and current Nashville Predator star Shea Weber adorned in one of the special plaid Bob Uecker Jerseys, courtesy of Lee Jeans. Weber skated in 46 games for Milwaukee during the 2005-06 season and helped the Admirals reach the Calder Cup Finals for the second time in team history. A 2009 NHL All-Star and Defenseman of the Year candidate, Weber is currently third on the Predators roster with 43 points.
Friday is also a Chipotle Fiesta Deck night. For just $16 fans receive a Chipotle Burrito Buck, which is good for a free burrito at any Chipotle location, a ticket for the game in section 221, and a kazoo. Also, one lucky fan will win a trip for two to any destination that Midwest Airlines flies, courtesy of Midwest Airlines.
