Been a U/M season ticket holder for 7 years, and I will be bundled up in the Big House.

BTW: anybody local to A.A. who has never experienced a Michigan Hockey game at Yost Arena, really should see a game there sometime. It’s an old style barn that holds only 6,500-7,000 and with the Band and the students section, it’s a great time. Also, there are quite a few NHL draft picks playing for U/M.

I’m going.  Between friends, family, and myself, we have 15 tickets for the game.  I live about 2 minutes from the stadium, so I’m very excited to do some cold weather tailgating and outdoor hockey-watching.

DR Dan…I love the game experience at Yost.  I had season tickets while a student…Word is, they’re installing HD video screens at Yost in 2011-2012 (which I really don’t think will detract from the old style feel in Yost one bit).


Paul, are YOU going?

i’m a bit sad to read that, since it’ll take the world record away from the opener of the hockey wc 2010 in germany.

don’t get me wrong, i’m happy for you guys.
just think about this: i guess it’s fairly easy to round up 100k ppl for a game like this, especially in the states/in michigan (!).

but it’s an effin miracle to have close to 80k attending a HOCKEY game in GERMANY ...

so i just wish we could’ve gotten to enjoy that record for at least a year or so.

lots of fun to anyone who’ll be going there!
