    Yes, still much more than 250 which strikes me as far too restrictive. Full disclosure: I'm not a doctor, but a I play one on this site.

    Michigan is limiting Comerica Park to 1000 fans for the Tigers opener and it seats 41,000 outdoors.

    Forgive me for going off-topic a bit, but I don't know where else to put this thought: Is this the year that all five Minnesota DI hockey schools get into the tournament?

    I think LSSU and BSU both deserve bids. Honestly, just watching them, they are both better than Notre Dame and probably BU and a couple of other eastern teams, Uconn and PC in particular.
    After further thought on this...the winner of Friday's LSSU/ Bemidji game is definitely in...The loser of that game may get in, too. However if the winner of Friday night's game also wins the Saturday night game, i.e. WCHA championship, then the Friday night loser gets in, too, on the coat tails of the WHCA champ. That would mean 3 WCHA bids.

    Wouldn't expect you feel otherwise. I don't have rose colored glasses on, we struggled this season but put together our best effort at the right time. After Saturday, I thought we were done, so the win yesterday was shocking, especially since it was so one sided. DiMatteo really stepped up, and he will need to stand on his head Friday if we have any chance against you guys.
    Kinda nice being here after getting swept by Tech this season. They playing this weekend? Oh, that's right, I saw them talking about next year earlier today.

    Karma. ;-)
