The Michigan Tech Hockey twitter account re-tweeted something that I just saw, saying that we are supposed to vote for Tech to be on the cover of some Michigan hockey magazine. I don't have any links, since Twitter is on my phone and I'm posting this from my computer, but someone who is better equipped to deal with this kind of dilema might be able to link to it.

Better than having one with girlfriend beater Thurber front and slightly off-center.that's true, I didn't look that close but I thought the MSU one looked the best, ferris State probably deserves it after their run last year.

not sure if this has been posted here:

The Michigan Tech Blue Line Club will host a start-of-the-season "Meet
the Team" Picnic on Sunday, September 16, at 4pm at the pavilion,
Kestner Waterfront Park, in Houghton. This is a great opportunity to
meet the incoming freshman hockey players, reconnect with those
returning, and talk with the coaching staff about the coming season.

The event is open to the public. Cost is $5 per person or $10 per
family and includes: hot dogs, hamburgers and soft drinks provided by
the club. A dish to pass is welcome.

For more information, email Blue Line Club President Scott MacInnes-
scott@cityofhoughton.com
or Treasurer Kathy Pintar - kapintar@mtu.edu

GO HUSKIES!

Gonna be $112 for the "new and improved" hockey-only video stream this year, or $12/game if purchased individually. IMO, the exhibition should at least be half price to let people test the video quality first, since the game doesn't impact the team record. Naturally though, it's all or nothing.

I think it's going to be the radio for me this season. Maybe I'll pay the $12 for a game here and there (NoDak, Duluth, and/or Northern).

I'll be doing the whole year subscription and be giving an earful if it is not improved

I think someone was looking at the JMSIA ticket prices when they set that price, in a "if we set it too low, no one will show up!" way. Shame.

I will not be in attendance at a lot of games this year anyway. But I'd feel better about paying $12 for a video stream if they told us that proceeds would fund the new scoreboard, or something.

I'm busy too often on Friday and Saturday nights to do a full season pass, and when it comes down to it, I'm not going to pay $12 to watch Tech on my computer when I can turn on some other random game on the big TV and follow the Tech game in the score thread.

Since I work a 2PM - 12AM shift and work every Friday and every other Saturday there is no way I will be signing up for the season, I may buy a game or 2 but that's it, definitely will continue to listen to the online stream though.

With the cost of $150 to see all sports, I think it would be wise to offer a plan where it automatically charges a monthly cost over the 8 month athletic season. I'll test it for football today and see if it'll be worth it.

I'd buy it if it included the away games. I'm in a similar boat as bose. I work a lot of weekends so it's hard to justify. Assuming it really does have improved quality, and course if it streams to my phone, that would be quite nice.

So far the quality is greatly improved, we'll see once the game starts. I have it running on both my iPad and desktop.
