One trophy has been successfully defended. Now it's time for the big one. And UMass doesn't need to leave the Commonwealth to do it.... amazing!


Congrats on the Hockey East title, it was a pleasure to witness. Go U!

yeh, that was unexpected...really cool, wearing my maroon (Sir) Richie Richardson signed cricket hat, just like the one he wore when he played for W.I. great teams of the '80s & 90s. Friend of ours in Antigua, gave them to us mid Feb.

"He was a flamboyant batsman and superb player of fast bowling. He was famous for his wide-brimmed maroon hat which he wore in preference to a helmet against even the fastest bowlers."

Ironically, we'll be in MN this weekend, really hoping we make it back to the Gahden for the FF.

Made it to the DCU Center box office this afternoon and picked up 5 tickets. The employee I spoke with said that she sold more tickets to UMass fans today than any other team by far. Let's fill the DCU on Friday. Oh yeah, it was nice not to pay those absurd Ticketmaster service charges.

Love this from one of the Pairwise "experts" on USCHO:

"The perfect storm would have been Lowell beating UMass on Friday, then losing to UConn on Saturday, coupled with wins by Harvard and Bemidji State. Then Lowell would have missed the tournament by finishing .0002 RPI behind...UMass."
"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."

To all who will be at the DCU Center, please make sure you see the Cousy statue, outside, at the main entrance corner.
It's really amazing.

Sculptor Omri Amrani is the best, bar none.

Ticket office was a shit show in Manchester a few years ago being run by the NCAA. Most Umass fans missed the first period waiting in lines for tickets.

Bought when the first went on sale so my tickets were delivered through the mail. They are doing physical tickets rather than mobile ones.
