Who's comin' with me?

Wheeling, WVa.'s ECHL Hockey franchise, the Wheeling Nailers, is hosting a "Shred Rich Rodriguez" night on Saturday.

This is legit.

The Nailers, who have the most creative marketing guys in the league behind whoever thought of The Columbus Chill's ill-advised "Drop a pass with Ken-Yon Rambo" night, are offering discounted tickets to:

Any fan that brings in a newspaper article or picture of the former West Virginia University football coach to contribute to the industrial sized paper shredder that will be stationed in the concourse. Additionally any fan who wears WVU apparel to the game will receive $2 off their ticket price. Ohio State fans will also receive the discount by wearing their gear to the game to demonstrate their mutual distaste for Michigan.

For Ohio St. fans and RichRod haters everywhere this means a night of discounted ECHL hockey.

So, its either that or the new Rambo movie.
