Day Six, in the City

Sexcity Guess what kids, it's time for the sixth day of The Miami Herald's Super-Spectacular Florida Panthers' Opening Night Giveaway.

Remember, the contest ends Wednesday at noon, so keep on getting those emails in. Do the math: It's today and tomorrow. That means two.

Again, here is the prize pack:

- Four (4) tickets in the ADT Club (free food and drinks) for the Panthers' home opener at BankAtlantic Center on Saturday, Oct. 11 versus the Atlanta Thrashers.

-- Limo service (35 miles max each way) to and from the game.

-- A Panthers team signed hockey stick

-- Four (4) Panthers baseball caps

-- Four (4) Panthers backpacks

And, as asked, here are the RULES.

Now, here is our sixth "not-so-hard, if you have Google" trivia question:

Daily Question No. 6 -- Oct. 7, 2008

"The Florida Panthers played their final game at Miami Arena in 1998 against the same opponent they opened the Sunrise Arena against later that same year. Name the team."

HINT: Don't call them Devil Rays, although you'd be close. And I would count it, just because I like saying 'Devil Rays.' And 'they' don't like me saying 'Devil Rays.' But what is a Ray without the Devil? Anywho, congrats to the Tampa Bay Rays for winning their share of the ALDS. And after all this, you all better get this answer right.



Remember, this contest is open to folks 18 and over who live in the Tri-County (Dade, Broward, Palm Beach) area only.

Good luck!

YESTERDAY'S ANSWER (even though no one got it wrong):

Daily Question No. 5 -- Oct. 6, 2008

"What college did Panthers' winger David Booth attend?"

HINT: His alma mater beat Notre Dame in football a few weeks ago. And many celebrated.

Answer: University of Michigan Wolverines.

HA! Just kidding Sparties (and Sparty Jr.)!

The real answer, is of course, THE Michigan State University Spartans.

-- Also, expect to see Rostislav Olesz -- as good a dude as he is -- suspended at least one game for Monday night's hit. Could be two games. Which would allow the Panthers to keep on one of their youngsters, and depending on the status of Karlis Skrastins, perhaps both Matthias and Frolik

-- Practice Tuesday is at 9 a.m. at the Big Bank. Sorry folks, but unless you know someone higher up than me, it's closed to the public.
