That's partly because starting a hockey team in Columbus in 2000 when most people were Red Wings fans was stupid, but also because the economy is bad and the Jackets missed the playoffs (badly) last year. I'll still try to make it out to a game or two over Christmas. Rick Nash won't stick around much longer if he doesn't think a Cup is in his future.
