Will There Be a "Rick
& Bubba" Section in Birmingham?
Birmingham Bolts Co-Reporter
and Bubba the radio play-by-play men for the Birmingham
Thunderbolts Radio Network are knocking around the
idea of a "Rick and Bubba" section for the
Bolts games. The idea originated in Orlando where
radio host Russ Collins of the "Monsters of the
Mid-Day" radio show (WTKS, 104.1 FM) have a special
section just for their listeners. Apparently the response
in ticket sales was impressive and immediate.
wanting to be out done Rick and Bubba
were taking calls this morning on their
radio show to see if listeners were interested
in a section for their "army"
of followers. The two radio hosts were
only interested in doing it, if they could
"show up" the guy in Orlando.
To sweeten the deal they also suggested
there could be a slight discount in the
ticket price. The suggestion could also
be motivated by the lagging season ticket
sales. While many team are boasting ticket
sales near or in excess of the league
goal Birmingham is lagging painfully behind
in that category. It remains to be seen
if Birmingham can come up with a 4th Quarter
play to get back into this game.
