    They also auction off a weekend of your choice to travel with the team on an away trip. You travel with them on the bus, I believe eat with them, stay at same hotel and go to the games. Forget who won this and home much they paid but recall somewhere around 800
    I was happy winning my Titleist Pro V-1's with the puckman on them.

      What a night, lots of fun. We are becomming a tough team to play against. I loved Miller's goal, all effort.

      One of my favorite parts of the night was when we scored with 10 seconds left in the 1st period. The hockey alumni gathered near the doorway(next to the bench) for the intermission introductions were clapping for the goal, and as the 5 guys that were on the ice skated by the bench, giving high fives, they skated past the alums and some of them were pounding on the glass, pumping their fists, or clapping. Cool moment.

        ....same thing happened with around 30 seconds left in game when the former players were over by Sec.7 glass pounding away....I thought glass was gonna break it was swaying so much.

          IIRC, that would've been Dino Macaluso....Aspy or troyboy can help me out on this one.

            For some reason, I got the impression from reading the score thread that people who were at the game estimated the crowd at around 4,800?

            and not a single word about the Pep Band. I thought lots of Pep Band alumni traveled to Troy to play with the Band during BRF?
            The band was enourmous, loud, and excited. Freakout is my favorite day of the year and having all the alumni back in the band is definitely part of that! We were totally out of seats in our space quite quickly and squeezing in people wherever they could fit. At the very end of the game with less than a minute left there were a couple stoppages and instead of playing one of our normal cheers the band started up "Na, Na, Na, Na, Hey, Hey, Hey, Good-bye" and kept it going through to the end of the game, playing instrumentals during the stoppages and singing while play was going. It was an amazing end to a fantastic game. I'm SO excited for this team. Now time for the men to go up to the North Country! (but we'll be here to help the women out when the North Country comes here as well. )

Harry Sinden seemed to think everyone needed to play like Cam Neely. So he traded Joey for a chain smoking defenseman with a hard shot who was tough (and out of the league a year later).
              Thanks JM-that was it-refreshed my aging memory completely. The trade for Iafrate may go down as Boston's worst ever. Sinden never liked Joey ever since the original signing-I remember when JJ was leading Team Canada in the Olympic scoring (not goals but total points) on a line with Lindros before coming to Boston. he was holding out for a bit more money from Sinden and threatening to play in Sweden. Sinden had said something to the effect that he should go play and yodel there. All Joey did was come in and set a record for assists for right wingers and finish second in the Rookie of the Year award to Selanne(who really was a more seasoned veteran having played in Europe). Iafrate was big, tough, fast and had a 100+ mph slap shot. But his knees were held together with tin foil and duct tape. It was Lipuma who broke his jaw in a fight.

                "Special "team" surprise in store for Freakout!!!!!"

                I posted this on the game thread. Actually, there were two surprises.......SA got his first Freakout win as FD mentioned....congrats to him. The surprise I was referring to was the Freakout uniforms......they were special!!
                I've been lost since 1989. I got a breakaway on a river and have been skating ever since!

                  Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

                    That used to be the norm when a game was a fait accompli in the last two minutes.

But it is good to see her participate.
                        As a season ticket holder who has been to every home game this year, EHF is correct that she was only at Black Friday and the Freakout. There have been a lot of nights where "the palace" has been empty. And I would love to see the HFH with 4000+ each night. Haven't seen that since the glory days df 84 and 85. Of course, if we could continue to play like we did this past weekend, attendance will certainly have to go up...
