    34-14 win for us.....not exactly a hammering.

Make a left at the light & you'll see the two pizza places as well as Rusch's Sports Bar, also a good spot with all the games on. Back at the light a right will take you roughly a quarter mile up to the Seven Oaks Clubhouse, my personal favorite from a food point of view. There's also a few other bars in town that you can't miss... it's not a big place!

    Regarding Gate football, I'm hoping we don't overlook Georgetown this weekend. They've played better than expected, hope it's not a trap game & we hammer them as we should. But a little worried...
    Hammer them as we should ? What happened last year ?

    Fast start might be vital- looking at John Buccigross' poll, we open with 2 at the #7 team, and then host the #10 team the next weekend. Contender or pretender might just get sorted out early.

    Another question - parking at the arena. Do you need a pass or a tag for any of those lots by there?
    No. Once you go past the rink make your first right turn and there should be plenty of parking in the lot or beyond that on the grass near the other athletic fields. Another trick is to make a left - coming from town - at the stoplight before the rink, go about 100 yards and make a right in front of the old Student Union. You can park in most any of the spaces there and walk to the rink. It's a little bit of a walk but good exercise if you are so inclined.

Since it's about a 3 hour drive, we're trying to make a day of it. We made the trip there about 10 years ago but we just buzzed in and out of town, it was dark out so we didn't see much. Thanks.
    There is the Good Natured Brewery in town (I believe they give tours, but no restaurant inside as far as I know), the Saranac brewery in Utica, or Turning Stone up a bit if that tickles your fancy. Yes, it's a little bit of a drive, but Hamilton really is an area with a couple of colleges (SUNY Morrisville right down the street) surrounded by a whole bunch of hills and not much else.

    LOL. You won't see much in the daylight either. Just one stoplight. Might suggest the Colgate Inn for eating/drinking; can't miss it. There are a number of other watering holes you can try. Good pizza at Olivers or NY Pizza in town. There is also an Indian food restuarant, however I have never tried it. (Shabby, chime in here - you know what to recommend to these folks better than I do.) If you are into art, the Picker Gallery on campus might entertain you. Have a good time, but don't carry it too far

    Was I behaving ? Saw Goulakis and some of the boys, he looked ripped, and very healthy. I think it's time for the "new thread".

    Chunky, get your butt on here, you're here every day ffs.

    Not sure I want to venture over to the "dark side" (visitor's stands). I sometimes hang out at the concession stand at the 1/2 if you ever venture over that way. No pressure. Still not sure about showing up - about 50-50 as of this hour
    Laughing at "dark side"...The sun is on your back, shoulders, and legs, yet you don't have to squint, much easier on the eyes. Tailgating is also "in the sun" and back where it should be, behind the scoreboard and visitors side. We only have to walk a few feet to tailgate again(as it should be). Roach is gone, yay Vicky !
