New, comments

A quick update on BF Night sales and your FAQ's to some questions received during New Year's Day weekend.

Hey everyone,

I had a chance to speak with Monumental Sports about extending the purchase deadline for BF Night tickets. BF Night is on Saturday, January 16, at 7:30 p.m. ET when the Wizards play the Boston Celtics.

Monumental has agreed to push the deadline until:

Friday, January 8 at 12 p.m. ET

If you need a code, it is bulletsforever. All tickets are in the 400 level but include a T-shirt and early entry into the game.

Update: No Early Entry, but we can do something postgame at Verizon Center

First, I have a piece of slightly bad news. We can't get early entry on January 16.

This is because of the Georgetown men's basketball game against Villanova which will be at 1 p.m. ET. If that game gets into overtime or multiple overtimes, there will be inevitable logistic issues like changing the floor, cleaning the arena, etc.

Let's face it. The Georgetown vs. Villanova game will end at around 3 p.m. ET if there is no overtime. But if it does, five minutes of overtime college basketball is an extra 20 minutes in real life given all the timeouts and commercial breaks. After the game is over, the operations crew has to clean up the place AND do a floor change in time for the Wizards game later that night.

That said, we will be allowed to do one of the following: post-game free throws (you only can take one I believe), OR a group picture on the Wizards' floor after the conclusion of the game. I have a poll below, you will have to respond by 9 a.m. ET on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 so I can give them a response -- and maybe they'll see it anyway. ;)

FAQ's

I received questions from multiple people via email and social media. Here are the answers to those questions:

What T-shirt size can I get? I initially told some people that the sizes were usually just XL, but I was corrected. On the day of the game, please go to section 400 to pick up your T-shirt, where they will have multiple sizes available. Medium tends to go away the quickest.

When will I get the tickets? Next week. You will get them through email as a ticket offer from Monumental Sports.

The delay in receiving the tickets is because this is a group sale, and tickets can't be released until the deadline to buy tickets has passed.

Hope this helps. If you have any additional questions, please write it in the comments. Otherwise, answer the poll below, and if you didn't buy tickets yet, do so here!
