Will have to check with the rest of my group about making the trip. Is this strictly posters-only or can friends-of-posters get in on the action? I have a feeling my ride and other friend would be much more open to the side trip if they could join in.

    Regardless, I hope I can make it and provide some amusement for the rest of you as I indiscriminately slam into walls. I've yet to have the pleasure of visiting Yost, and this would definitely be a great way to do it!
    No house helmets that I know of, but you could try posting in the game thread for stuff.

    Posters are top priority, but we normally have no problems with friends. At least that I know of.

      You're talking about chants like, "Ugly parents", "Ugly girlfriends", and other chants degrading the fanbase of the opposing team in general (their education for instance). Are those are the sorts of chants that are supposed to get under the teams skin? Or annoy and irritate their fans in the stands?

      I can just see you guys in the stands LOL... Oh jeez... I used to really respect those guys. But they went and copied our own ridiculous noise and used it against us. It's a crying shame that all those MAC level educated guys and their ugly slutty girlfriends had to sink so low as to do something like that. What a sad sad state of affairs. I wonder what their ugly chump, dick, wuss, douchbag, *******, *****, cheater, *****, whore parents think.

      Think less of them as hockey fans... that is pretty ***** rich I tell you!!! Made my evening =)

      On another note... they threw bottles on the ice? Are we talking a few people or tens of them?

        I have to admit, i think this is pretty funny, you forgot to include our band playing to coverup the end of the chant.

        As for the bottles thrown, i was there and only saw one or two idiots that threw bottles. Hate it when a couple of idiots make an entire fanbase look like a bunch of jerks.

          Ugly? No. Sluty? Probably. This is Miami we are talking about here, it has a few perks!

          Maybe 10? It was pretty lame either way.

            Preach on.
            Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

              I saw 2 or 3 bottles reach the ice at the end of the game. Classless, pathetic, and most likely the Walmart wolverine variety.

              As others have said, skating ability not a huge requirement. Last year's posters game was my first time skating with full equipment. I've since played a few games. I'll be participating this year. For position, I put forward because that's the only direction I can skate. Oh, and my way of stopping is running into someone or the boards. So come, play, skate circles around me.

I really don't need to hear squealing trombones during the second overtime of regional finals. For all the crap Michigan gets about playing the Victors so much, there is something to be said about learning to play a few songs well as opposed to doing a lot of songs poorly.
              I think there's also something to be said for having songs written by and for your school that your fans love and participate with. Rather than playing the standard songs every other band plays.

              Miami's band isn't bad. It could be worse. I still love the quote from my friend from a regional, I believe it was about the UNH band: "I think they all switched instruments before the game"

              I'm also sick of the music school excuse. Yes, Michigan has a school of music. I can tell you when I was in the marching band 3 of our 72 trumpet players were studying music. Over 1/3 of our marching band is engineering majors. I don't think any in the hockey band were music majors.

                Fair enough, I have always heard (from friends at Michigan) that a large percentage of band members study music. They could be totally mistaken for all I know. Regardless if you don't want to play the music program game you can play the number of students game (I think with over 10,000+ more students there is a much larger talent pool), or the more funding game (I don't play an instrument but I am assuming more practice time/a well paid director improves performance/originality). Who really cares, just thought that the OP was being a tool with that comment so I threw the music program thing out there.
