Blues Players Deliver Season Tickets

Dan Villa would describe a typical day at the office as making countless phone calls to electrical contractors and organizing light fixture installations at retailers such as Target, Walgreens and Kohls.

Tuesday afternoon, however, was anything but typical.

As Blues Season Ticket Holders, Dan and his brother John were greeted at their family business by Blues forward David Perron, who brought with him their four plaza center season tickets for the 2008-09 hockey season.

“It was a good surprise,” said Dan, who was caught off guard by seeing Perron walking around the office. “That’s the way to (get my tickets delivered).”

Perron’s arrival brought plenty of curious co-workers to the company’s conference room, where Perron talked with the Villa brothers before meeting several employees who wanted to introduce themselves and take time get a team poster signed by Perron.

“It’s always fun to do stuff like this for fans,” Perron said after delivering tickets to the Villas. “It’s great to have their support. It’s always something we’re going to do in the future, also.”

The Blues randomly selected eight season ticket holders for player deliveries, making it the second straight year that players have delivered tickets before the start of a new season.

“It’s pretty incredible,” said Jason McGaughey, who works in the warehouse at Villa Lighting’s main headquarters on South Vandeventer. “I heard somebody was here and I came up here and saw it was David. It’s pretty cool. He’s going to be a big player this year.”

The Villas have been Blues Season Ticket Holders since 1977, when their father, Jack, first purchased seats at the St. Louis Arena on Oakland Avenue. Dan says they’re looking forward to the upcoming season and wouldn’t pass up a chance to be there for the action.

“It should be a real good year,” he said. “It should be exciting with guys like Perron, (Patrik) Berglund and (T.J.) Oshie. I think there’s going to be a good run coming up.”

David Backes, Brad Boyes, Oshie, Berglund and Cam Janssen were among the players delivering tickets on Tuesday. Players drove to various homes and businesses throughout the St. Louis area, including visits to Des Peres, Fenton, and Collinsville, IL.

“It’s a good feeling,” Perron said. “I’ll remember it, for sure. If I ever see these guys on the street or something, I’ll remember their names and everything. It’s good to see them today.”
