ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues are responding to tight economic times with a fan bailout plan.

The team announced Monday that at every remaining Saturday home game beginning Nov. 29, the organization will call the seat number of a fan and pay that person's mortgage or rent for four months, up to US$4,000 total.

The team also is offering discounted tickets, with 500 plaza-level seats available for $25 a ticket and another 500 in the mezzanine for $11.20 a ticket for each game this season.

The team will also continue its Free Food game, where fans can receive some free food when they attend the March 15 game against Minnesota.
