Winnipeg Free Press: Jets fans win season tickets, jerseys. Gotta thank their lucky stars that their names were pulled from list of 50,000.
CBC: Winnipeg and the Jets – A love affair rekindled. Many fans still express disbelief that the team has returned. And let’s hope their aren’t too many Habs fans in the crowd.
Winnipeg Free Press: Kreviazuk, Cuddy to sing national anthems. Did fans want to see a return of Jennifer Hanson and her red dress? (ironically she lives in Atlanta now). What do you think of this choice?
Globe and Mail: Claude Noel is either a coaching genius or easily pleased. He ran the practices pretty tightly but the Jets are definitely going to need to improve the special teams play (based on what we saw in the pre-season).
CBC: Jets’ Heisinger reflects on remarkable journey. In the man they call Zinger, the Jets have one of the hardest working and genuine people in the business.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets practice for Jets. I heard these things today during the morning and again saw them landing as I was cruising down Inkster. The aerodynamic noise was quite loud.
