The fans in my row were fuming about the umbrella thing.

They said they were told that umbrellas could be used as weapons... :shock:

Maybe beer and umbrellas are a dangerous combination.

That said at $8-10 a pop...I don’t see fans getting THAT drunk...

The staff at the Bill should be more focused on serving batter food.

For a school whose food is so highly rated there should be better options than ice cold burgers and fries from under a heat lamp.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a hot dog there that’s actually hot!

Umbrellas as weapons! What a bunch of dinks! And they wonder why people get pissed off? BTW, where was Matty? The new announcer needs to cut the UMASS three calls off a few seconds earlier as it seemed overkill. Bitching about this is a LOT better than about the team. First game!! I will take it knowing that the team is going to get better as the season progresses.

How about popcorn at McGuirk.....daily sodium allotment for a family of four (4)!

I noticed that Holloway kept the ball above his shoulders when he got a rebound, something I've been begging to see a UMass big do since Calipari left. Pierre's floater was also something new. I don't remember seeing it even once last year.

The gameday concessions are hands down the worst quality of any location owned/operated by UMass Dining. Unfortunate.

^ LS71 and Mrs. Cage were not thrilled with their quite cold pre-game burgers at The Bill last night.

More like a monthly sodium allotment for a family of four, they're trying to force you to buy more overpriced soda!

Umbrella thing must be new, pretty sure I brought them in the past, even last season if the memory serves me right. Seems tough, if it's raining hard you will be soaked by the time you get inside. What about when we start selling out and there are lines to get in?

I think they're banned because of all the umbrella fights in the past. Weren't you involved in one of those? :D
