    FWIW, I don't like it when sports reporters do this. Just report it out and try and get sources on the record.

With the way they treat snow down here, we should be able to get in time for the ECAC playoffs!! We have not had one like this in 10-15 years and with the increased population now here, this is going to be one big mess and dangerous to even venture out for days. if we are lucky enough to not lose power, life will not be intolerable indoors for a week. I have no idea if this storm will reach anywhere close to Troy or the rest of inland New England to affect the hockey schedules for the ECAC.
    Hunker down and stock up on the Ketel One ....gimlets for everyone is my prescription Doc !!!! All the best to you and Jenny.

    Fortunately for Dartmouth and Harvard, they are making the trip to Colgate and Cornell. Boston could be getting more than 2 FEET of snow while Troy should only be getting 1-3 inches. And Brown is playing at Princeton in about an hour. The women will be more affected then the men.
    Also, there is a Connecticut Ice Hockey tournament scheduled for tomorrow that will probably be postponed or cancelled.

    The answer will come quick enough.

    February has at least two OUTDOOR HOME contests scheduled. A lacrosse game in mid month and a baseball game at the end of the month. Neither game would have been very likely to draw a hundred spectators even before the pandemic.

    If everyone including players' parents are either still watching lacrosse from the top of the hill at ECAV or baseball from the sidewalk on Eagle Street, everyone can just forget about attending anything indoors.

    However, being naturally curious (especially when it comes to fork in tongue phony hypocrites) can any student, faculty or staff verify whether the assembly of personal guests that assembled in the private reception and catering area overlooking the football field for the six home games last fall have continued to do the same in the indoor counterparts overlooking either the basketball court or the hockey rink???

    I'm not sure about that, but I know that media members have been allowed at the field house despite not being part of RPI

    When we first began to discover some of the manifestations of this bugger, some of us felt this could be Mother nature's way of immunizing the planet. After all it is like delivering virus protecting material to much of the world - including all of those nations that are not and can not be receiving large amount of pharmaceutical prepared immunizations. Those medical people who study the history of medical pandemics know that is sort of what happened to end the great flu epidemic of 1918-1920. Misnamed as the Spanish Flu (it probably started in Kansas).
    Hopefully Rensselaer county's number of case will continue to fall precipitously. The question will remain whether that is enough for the decision to be made by the powers in control, or whether they will shift their focus to some other metric and keep everyone in fear and of course keep everything locked down.

    Covid cases in Rensselaer County are falling just as fast as they rose. The peak was about a couple weeks ago. In a month's time, covid should not be a problem in the capital region if we continue following the current trends. The one good thing about Omicron being so infectious is that everyone gets exposed to it very quickly, which is why the peak is sharp and declines quickly.

    I hope you are right. The team could use some fan support at the games. I can't imagine a Freakout with no fans.

    Simply stated and spot on. We have to just go one game at a time... Great job by the boys and shows what they are capable of any given game.
    This was a great win, especially in view of the weekend's results. And as much as I enjoyed the win, couldn't help but recall Kepler's Third Law.
