    Plus, I didn't want to jinx them by picking Bentley and immediately watching them lose when I did (yes, I wholly believe if I picked Bentley, they'd lose the game).
    I am a scientist, so I do not believe in jinxes.

    I think the game is going to be insanely close, possibly even to OT, but Harvard picks up the win. I think it's going to be one of those games where it's 4-3 in OT, where Harvard is winning 3-1 and really coughs up the game and has to rally late, then they pick up the win by the skin of their teeth.

    I'm not going to be shocked if Bentley wins this, and it was very tough. Plus, I didn't want to jinx them by picking Bentley and immediately watching them lose when I did (yes, I wholly believe if I picked Bentley, they'd lose the game).

Beating hapless Hunstville is expected. I put the Hahvud game in the same category as the Michigan one; no one is picking us to beat or even tie Hahvud in the AHA Pick 'Em thread.

    Careful in calling them "Hahvud" - you might upset them and then they'll cry about how great they are and how we don't have a real program. Harvard fans are petulant; if you want an example go look at their board. I posted an article with a spelling error and they couldn't wait to make a comment about my lack of spelling prowess. They also don't deal with criticisms very well.

    I realize by saying this I might invite inflammatory statements or receive *GASP* negative reputation from them. But hey, what can I do? I'm just a lowly Bentley fan

    Bringing the sign to Harvard? Haha

    That would be my guess, too. The 10+2 matching major roughing and fighting penalty was a bit embarrassing in a game that was long decided. Of course, on the same play that led to the Koudys penalty, the 5-minute major on Hartung for "charging the goalie" was a joke, as Hartung did everything that he could to avoid the goalie, including his 10-point landing on top of the cage.

    After seeing so much rubber on Friday night, wonder if Komm will get this coming Friday night off against Huntsville to be fresh for Hahvud?

    This alum approves. Bravo!

Nothing against UAH because I feel horrible for the way they've been treated the last 3 years by the NCAA, but Bentley needs to reassert itself after a 6-3 loss with a big beatdown.

    I'm assuming there will be bus service to the JAR again from the campus?

    It appears that perhaps Bentley returned about 30 tickets to Harvard, as there are a bunch of contiguous seats that just opened up near the Bentley bench. About 40 tix left total.

    I will be the clown behind the Bentley bench with the retro/old school 2002 Bentley jersey. My wife will be the obnoxious loud one.
