My experience with ECAC bands is that they are generally great with the cheering and the liveliness and not so great with the instrumentation.
Ha -- yes, this.

Joe -- bail?

Yeah, screw that. Totally not worth it.

Oh nice. Q's arena is one of my favorites.

.

Cheel Arena is NOTHING like TD in Hamden. I think the manure emanating off the fields in North Country is getting to him. It's a whole lot more like Conte than it is like TD.

I've been to both Cheel and TD several times and I think they're quite similar. I also think Conte is similar, on a much larger scale, although I think Conte's sight lines for hockey are pretty poor and I had my choice of seats the last time I was there for a CCT/BC game.

Potsdam and environs are about 30 min south of Canadian border. The $4 you spend on tickets I can guarantee you will more than save on the price of beer relative to New England pricing. $3-$4 per beer is the norm here

As far as charging for tickets, I believe that's regulated by the NC$$ as it is their tournament. The last time I was up there for a women's game, I believe it was free or maybe a $5 general admission. Our women's games barely draw 100 fans on most nights, although the ECAC represented well for the league tournament. Clarkson's website says the women's tickets for this weekend are $10 adult, $6 student/senior, $4 for kids 12 and under.

There was probably about 1000 fans each day last weekend at Clarkson.

It's okay, I'll drink enough for the both of us. Especially if BC loses. :D

I think I'm going to have to root for BC in Hamden if Clarkson loses. I'm certainly not rooting for any sort of roadkill or any team that can't manage to have anything more than a color in their name.

I hope they do but I'm not woofing. I don't know anything about BC and I'm very concerned about Ambrose's injury. When I say that CCT only had one quality scoring chance in 60 minutes on Sunday against Cornell, it's not an exaggeration. Granted, if Ambrose is out (which I'd grade as highly likely with limited information), the coaches will have a week to put together a game plan as opposed to the 20-hour turnaround after Saturday's game.

Time for your senior class to lead the way.

EDIT: Now I remember, she was out when you played BC and the Eagles' fans got all fired up because they thought they were four goals better than you.

How are the wings? This is probably the most important question you will ever be asked.

Went to Clarkson for Four Years. If you want good wings go across the street to Eben's Hearth. Best Wings I've ever had. And I've been to Anchor Bar in Buffalo.

Oh man WING FIGHT!

I encourage more people to chime in on this Eben's Hearth vs. McDuff's debate. I don't think you all realize how seriously I take this discussion.

I would highly suggest staying far away from Duffs after game if you don't like the college bar scene. It's not exactly the cleanest place either.

I can see TTT liking the College Bar Scene, Wing fight and all. :D

Is that not the standard for a college bar scene place ?.
