    In an attempt to get back on topic: sounds like the big ten hockey schedule will be coming out on Monday at 10am CT!

My expectation was that diners would be wearing masks before and after they eat while they are at the table and wear it walking out. Um no. Once people sat down, the mask was off and it never went back on, not even walking out. Staff wore masks the whole time. Maybe even Dane county has had enough of the masks? It is the highest vaccinated county in the state.
    I found this story really interesting. I was just visiting my grandparents house just outside of Madison this past weekend while my parents were in town and my grandmother told me that Dane County has a mask mandate for everywhere you go. Specifically interesting because I went into a BP gas station and there was no sign for a mask requirement so I did not put one on (and was unknowing of any mandate since I live in Portage County). The lady at the front counter didn't say a word and she wore her mask around her neck/chin. I think people are absolutely getting sick of wearing masks.

    Dane County is doing an awesome job with vaccination rates. Over 70% are fully vaccinated.

    Ughhhh. Not that it would be an issue for me, I just don't like the idea that anything can force you to reveal medical information in order to participate in public functions. That is nobody's business but the person and their doctor. And what about those that can't get the vaccine because of medical issues/other? Are they just banned from society?

    I know I'm getting super off topic and I probably come off as super opinionated to a lot of people on here but this stuff drives me crazy. I just hope the university doesn't go this route and the people who do attend games are diligent in their own safety and for other people's safety.

    Though I am shot up, I find this very disagreeable. RPI has dumped fans to start the season. Not a good sign. Panic is percolating.

    Same. Not having to wear a mask in places like the Kohl Center was the biggest factor for me flipping to getting the vaccine. I won’t be surprised if they force the vaccinated to mask though. It’s Madison after all.

    Looks like we're gonna have to wear masks inside the rink unless we are actively eating. I'm gonna put some weight on I guess. LOL. I'm not wearing one. We got vaccinated so we could very much lower the likelihood of ending up in the hospital and get our lives back. From Watts I have read, the delta has very little impact on the vaccinated. I should not have my life altered to protect the people who have convinced themselves the vaccine is a bad thing.

    The question is how are they going to enforce it? Will be interesting to see.

    I for one am STARVED for seeing hockey games in person. Hopefully some men's women's double headers will work out once the women's schedule is pieced into the puzzle. At any rate the car will be on rails to Lot 91 or the Fedex/Kinkos parking lots.

    6 home and 2 away and 2 kinda home and the 2 away are not cross country. Extremely favorable in that way. I'm interested in going to an Army game and maybe a Tech game, but going opening weekend is a little dicey with the guys not being fully systemized yet. It could make for some interesting play though.

    So only 2 draftees this time around, a first and seventh rounder. I am excited to see the lads continue the play the type of hockey they played last year, that is a winning formula.

    Draft is this weekend looks like at least 5 could get selected....
    Skaters
    14 – Corson Ceulemans (D)
    147 – Daniel Laatsch (D)
    152 – Caden Brown (F)
    211 – Jake Martin (D)

    Goaltenders
    13 – Cameron Rowe

    I would not be surprised if Kehrer was drafted, he was phenomenal last season. Also a draft note from reading the WSJ; Cujo was never drafted? Seriously? I remember that Cujo was a sought after recruit.
