    December 29, 2017 sunset 4:29PM in Troy, NY and 4:02PM in Bangor, ME. For these two cities the difference is driven by equal parts longitude and latitude.

    Depends on your frame of reference.

    Here in central Pennsylvania, it definitely will not be dark by 4 PM. In Maine, where Walrus is, it very well might be dark by that time.

    In Troy, my guess is that it won't be completely dark by 4 PM, though the light would probably fade completely sometime during the first period.

    But with the shades, it won't make any difference inside the building, anyway.

    I'm on the same latitude as Troy, and there's still some daylight at 4 PM. I remember walking home from school in Orono at 4 and it being after sunset, though.

    It depends on both latitude and longitude. For two places at the same latitude in the same time zone, the sun rises and sets at a later time the further west you go.

    The winter days are shorter and colder in Orono vs. Troy, believe me.

    Are these games going to be shown for free on RPItv?

    Yes, although since it is between semesters there could be fewer cameras used than usual.

    Of course they are...everything associated with UM/Orono/etc is so horrible in your pea brain. I mean are you really trying to expound on the virtues of 5 minute later sunsets and 2 degree winter temp differences in Troy, NY vs. Orono, ME? They both suck in the winter! I pity the fool that has to live with you if Maine starts winning games again!

Doherty played very well as well. Vesey had a good chance late in the game as well. The other guy I thought did well was Binner. He helped the breakout tremendously, lugged the puck a lot. Nice to see a rookie show confidence and carry the puck with poise.

    Should be another fun watch today. GO BLUE
