A Word on Hockey Before the Game Tonight

So many of you may have heard that the UConn Men’s and Women’s Ice Hockey teams are playing in the Whalers Hockey Fest at Rentschler Field on February 13. The men’s game vs. Sacred Heart begins at 1:00 and the women face Providence at 4 PM. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for Seniors, Youth, and Students and can be purchased here. Admission includes both games and I am told that SUBOG will be selling Roadshow tickets for student transportation beginning February 1.

I have a feeling that this will either be a sell-out and a success or it will be a colossal failure and nobody will buy tickets. Only time will tell. Let’s hope it’s the former rather than the latter. Buy tickets and go to the game. This is your chance to experience an atmosphere like the Winter Classic but for a fraction of the price. Tickets to this past year’s game at Heinz Field were going for $500 minimum. And the seats that weren’t in the sky went for several thousand. This is general admission (I haven’t figured out if there’s a general admission section for people who don’t buy tickets through the Whalers Hockey Fest organizers or if it’s all general admission throughout the whole stadium). So you can get somewhat close. Even the worst seats are better than the $500 seats at Heinz. And they’re 2% of the price (1% if you’re a student – though with the bus ticket it’s still probably the same). So let’s go out there. And of course, tonight is the Men’s Ice Hockey game vs. Air Force. Stay tuned.
