Arena Gives Out Golden Tix To See Every Game

For as long as we can remember, Boston sports fans have had something of a reputation as being somewhat, well, annoying. Between the annoying Bahhston accent, the drunken loudmouthery, and the devotion bordering on obsession, the stereotypical Boston fan can be too much for normal people to take.
