I saw my first Barons game yesterday in OKC. It was a very entertaining game and we had an enjoyable time. You can certainly tell the difference in player quality and size.

http://theahl.com/stats/game-summary.php?game_id=1011692

Official attendance was 3032. Compare with Tulsa's 4728 average and 4587 for the last Sunday game against Allen. I must say the attendance "feel" was equivalent if not better than what I've been observing in Tulsa. Could be the difference in arena size/layout or better audience interaction or both. Would love to know our gate numbers...

* Barons face-off at 4pm, Thunder tip-off at 6pm.
* I enjoyed the organ playing throughout the game breaks.
* The arena really felt like the Baron's home. Large banners around the arena between the levels and throughout the concourse. Fan shop is an actual retail store rather than a booth.
* Energy FC was promoted fairly well.
* It was a bit amusing to consider all the Blue & Orange with a mascot named Derrick...
* Former Tulsa Oiler Jack Combs had a really good game with first star accolades in his second game with the Barons.

In addtion to player quality and size, did you notice any difference in the speed?
