Being a Nets season-ticket holder right now can’t be fun: You trek out to the Meadowlands to watch a team that — best case scenario — may sneak into the playoffs as the eighth seed and lose in the first round.

So the Nets have a solution: Through their Snowbird Ticket Exchange Program, you can trade your Nets tickets for ones to see the NHL’s Panthers in sunny Florida. (The Nets’ CEO and Panthers’ COO are twin brothers, apparently.) The Panthers are just as mediocre, sure, but who cares? It’s supposed to be in the seventies in Miami all weekend.
