      Almost...2005 is when we won the beanpot. To my knowledge, still the only Western team to do so

They will run out fast with all the 400 lb fat *** Sue fans at the game. As far as beer goes, you probably have until about 5 mins into the first period before those hicks suck the place dry. Just a friendly heads up.

        Me too! Cuz I want to know how they'll be selling beer at a regional! Since, you know, you can't.

        Ah yes, the goalie had a gambling debt that needed to be paid off!! I remember that well.

            In the past, Channel 38 has skipped the Movie of the Week to pick them up. One would think the NCAA hockey tournament would get better ratings than a rerun of "Tootsie," but alas.

              Haven't heard for sure yet (I think the NCAA pays for this flight), but typically UAF does Fairbanks-Seattle-(Destination). I'm assuming they'll fly commercial, of course. Alaska Airlines actually does a pretty tidy business flying various hockey teams (both NCAA and Junior-A) in and out of Fairbanks all winter long, not to mention basketball, volleyball, etc. teams coming in to play UAF. Alaska Air does fly Seattle-Boston nonstop, so I imagine the most likely routing is Fairbanks-Seattle-Boston. I will admit, though, that I was hoping we'd get the St. Paul regional, as it would make travel a lot easier. MSP is served nonstop from Anchorage, which takes a lot of the hassle out.

              As I said earlier, I don't think the travel is going to phase our guys too much. I'm more worried about them getting starstruck after finally making the tourney.

                  Google "oosik". Those are legendary in Alaska.

                    Just about as long as ND has been a state. are you guys really like all of the people in the movie Fargo?

                    On a chilly February day, Malcolm Chase, Class of 1896, and his classmate Arthur Foote led the newly formed Yale hockey club onto a Baltimore rink for the first intercollegiate hockey game in America. Their opponent, Johns Hopkins University, was comprised of 11 graduate and undergraduate students. Accounts of the Yale-Johns Hopkins game described the play as stubborn and hard-fought, a bitter contest ending in a 2-2 tie.

                    BTW last regional I went to in Bridgeport CT, no beer and you could not leave between games, flask time if that is the case in the DCU.

                        All things considered this is probably a shorter and easier trip than getting to Northern Michigan and Lake Superior State and similar to Nebraska-Omaha so the travel should be no big deal for UAF.

                        Greenham will need to have a good game _ not necessarily an out-of-this-world performance, but he can't have one of his occassional so-so games _ in order for UAF to pull off an upset or two. It will definitely help if Taranto is near full strenght, any report on how he is doing?

                          And personally, after we skate circles around North Dakota I like our matchup against BC better than against Miami.

                            Yale is lucky enough to have both a good school and a good hockey team. I hear North Dakota has a pretty good hockey team.

                              Just want to give a shout out to my Alaska folk. Congrats on your first tourny apperance!!

                              Now if you could please take out our nemesis please I would greatly appreciate it, we don't want any possible chance of ever playing a team from Denver...ever

                              I think BC is in for more than they think. This Alaska squad is scrappy and will battle till the end. Taranto is a stud and goals will be hard to come by for both teams.

                              Good luck guys!

                                I've heard interesting things about this 'paper' hockey you play out that way. Looking forward to it.
