Well, Timmy, at least your body won't be the first thing to hit the wall.

Just wondering, can we expect 15,000 + each night on opening weekend? I'll be there.

I'd expect a decent crowd for the BC series, but games during the football season just don't quite draw as well. Once conference play and the second semester gets going, I'd expect a few games close to the 15k mark.

I actually watched their press conference online the other day, said McCabe who played at Wisconsin from 2011-14. You kind of feel their passion and their excitement around the whole program. You know if I was a 15, 16, 17-year old I dont know how Id ever turn down a coaching staff like that with pro experience those guys have. Its exciting and Im proud to be an alum. --Jake McCabe

Anything would be better than the attendance for the opener last year.

I think to jump from where they were last season to 15k based on coaching alone is probably not realistic. Drawing consistently (and actually scanning anywhere) around 10K would be a huge jump at this point, but really big crowds are typically predicated on a successful program. If they win, the attendance will continue to improve.

We have football tickets and Sat. night hockey tx. It's difficult to impossible to get the hockey game when both are on the same day. We usually bail on the hockey game. I wish they'd make an effort not to do this.

We used to enjoy those double headers when we had both tix.

Greenbush Bar was conveniently on the way.


Does make for a long day though.

There's always time, even when staying for fifth quarter. The band members tend to be a little late, but they all make it, despite all the extra marching/playing. I could definitely see how any of several different factors would make it tough to do, though. In the last couple of years, I could make a pit stop at my apartment. (On the other hand, I have more incentive to get to the hockey game earlier.)

I actually loved the dual weekends. It was just Badger overload.

I've preferred my 5-game winter weekends. (Football games are draining, and the timing is trickier when it's 2:30 football and 8:00 hockey.)

Friday: women's hockey then men's hockey
Saturday: men's basketball then men's hockey
Sunday: women's hockey

I still can't believe what transpired this week:)

in my excitement I had to dig up some gems (some other cool videos have been taken down, where'd the 99-00 highlights go for instance?)

Stupid Wild. Lose to the Wings last night who are now tied for a wildcard spot.

Agreed. I would look forward to those Saturday double headers. Kids can't handle it these days. :D

Does anybody even attend the Saturday 7:00 am Keg Cracking Ceremony anymore? Or do they just stream it live to everyone's i-thingy?

October 1 can't get here quick enough.

Is Victoria a Canadian team?

WMac, I never could drink beer that early, but cracking a bottle of Svedka and some Major Peters lights my fuse.

Thing I learned: Youtube has generic music to add to videos. I have a bunch of goals I cut from from 2007 & 2008 mostly that I can put up there at some point.

Glory Days maybe.

Some great goals, and they would be even better if the crowd reaction was included in some of the game winners, including the Hukalo goals.
