    Re: '12-13 Michigan Tech Season Thread: Screw the Election, Let's Play Hockey!

    Well I missed most of the game and only heard the first period, but how do we expect to compete with Minnesota if we let LSSu get 4 goals. minnesota will score 10 the way we played. Although the five minute major was not from behind if you ask me, we are going to get called like that and we have to play within ourselves despite that.

    We might have talent but you need to play defense not just offense. it's not the BCHL any longer.

      Continental Fire Co. gives Houghton a new breath of night life
      WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012


      ARTS AND CULTURE, ENTREPRENEURSHIP
      HOUGHTON/HANCOCK
      Let's be honest here--anyone who has moved to Houghton or Hancock from a larger metropolitan area didn't take long to find out that there isn't much of a night life in the area.

      Jonathan Julien and the owners of the Continental Fire Company in Houghton are hoping to change that. That's exactly why they opened their new night club, built in a former fire hall that was home to the original Continental Fire Company in 1883--one of the first fire companies in the area. The building was also the birthplace of the Michigan School of Mining in 1885--now known as Michigan Technological University--which held its first classes in the upper level.

      "One of the biggest reasons we chose the building we did was its historical significance," says Julien, who opened the club with Adam and Thomas Yeoman. They are currently the only three employees, though they are accepting applications for several open positions.

      Those old firemen and mining school students wouldn't recognize the place these days. Julien and the Yeomans basically completely rebuilt the building, though they did try to keep as much of the original architecture as possible--including the 130-year-old flooring on the balcony level.

      The trio, all hailing from Houghton, will open the doors full-time come March 1, starting with a Thursday, Friday and Saturday schedule.

      "We will be slowly working into more nights, but those will be the days we will be open for the time being," Julien says.

      The Continental Fire Company, located at 408 East Montezuma, will offer patrons a cocktail theme with quieter music until around 10 p.m., and then transition to a true night club.

      "We are all from Houghton and really saw a need for an entertainment venue like we are doing--we all love living here and only thought this would improve the social life in Houghton," says Julien.

          I've seen pictures of the inside, and it looks like it very nice. I was told that it could be dropped into downtown Chicago and you wouldn't be able to tell it was a "club" from Houghton. Not sure how true that is, but still, easily a huge improvement over the Upslut.

            Sure beats being in a concourse like the luncheon I went to last year. Makes sense they wanted to upgrade where the luncheon was located.

              Seems like the boys were a little shell shocked last night. LSSU came out loaded for bear and their top line ran roughshot over us in the first 45 seconds. It's unfortunate that we lost, but I think the game was a good wake-up call. Maybe the guys were believing their press and thought this would be an easy one. At least now, they know they'll need to play a two-way game. I'll be a bit surprised if Copley's getting the start again. I didn't watch the game on the video feed so I'm not sure if any of the goals were soft. Does anyone have info on how Copley played overall? I'll be in the nosebleed seats for Saturday's game. Looks like the game will be sold out....only 16 unsold seats left in the entire building.

Des Moines is not a good team so he'll get a ton of ice time this year.

                        I've heard a big crowd will show up at the game Saturday, perhaps over 4,000. Is that true?

                          I would hope there is a big crowd.
                          LSSU looked like they really rushed the puck in the highlight video. Not bad for a "defensive team"
                          I expect a more determined defensive effort tonight, and a hard fought split this weekend.

                            Anyone try feed from a iPhone last weekend? Going to be wandering aroun San Francisco during the game... Curious if it'll work well, or I'll just have to have to listen to it.
                            MTU Hockey fan since I was carried to a game in 1986 - for those counting... that's a lot of depressing hockey. Still love it.

                              I was curious, so I tallied the seats on the tickets website. Here's the breakdown:

                              Seats: 2901 (9 of those remaining)
                              Handicap: 24 (10 remaining)
                              Standing Room – Ice Level: 600 (583 remaining)
                              Standing Room – Concourse Level: 400 (320 remaining)
                              Suites: 203 [by deducting previous numbers from 4,128 stated capacity]

                              So we're at about 3,200 sold so far.
