    I didn't think they'd look like Where's Waldo...

    And the half-a'd version they put together when playing us doesn't count.

    But, for real, no, they don't have a bar in the union (from what I remember, but I haven't been in two years). You'd have to travel that less than a mile to get to "downtown" Potsdam for a drink.
    They have McDuff's, Backstreets, and Maxfields. Pastimes (the bar closest to the CU campus) and Bali Hai (on Market St) both burned down years ago, but I don't know if anything was rebuilt to replace them.

    If you want to hang out with the college crowd, go for McDuff's. If you want to enjoy a drink, go to Maxfields.

    Two on campus bars now - one in the new student center and one in Cheel Campus Center (hockey rink) that is always open for hockey games that are both beer/wine bars. Can't imagine why they wouldn't want hard liquor being sold on campus...

    I didn't think so, but they do have a Subway in there.

    A question for the Clarkson fans (or anyone who has been to Cheel recently)... Do you still have the bar near the rink in your campus center? It has been a few years since I made the north country trip. Looking forward to it!

    Coach Leaman mentioned recently that Union was going to try to send the band to an away game soon. I'm not sure if this is still planned, but I would assume it would happen this weekend.

    That's really too bad. It's the Clarkson band's alumni weekend and adding another band to the mix on Friday night would've made for one HELL of an atmosphere.

    Oh, that was 'bail" not "Bailen". Never mind!
    I am beginning to think you really miss working a lot since you retired.

    Unless you're ranked number 2 in the Country we can't beat you.
    Never fear-we have an incredibly long history of playing to the level of the competition and making every game into an adventure. I am sure this too will be a nail biter.
