I'm already thinking about next season. The Icebreaker at Notre Dame is currently the leading choice. :D Oh I'm with you on that one...I think I'm gonna have to make that one as well !!

Given today's technology, perhaps you can convince one of the attendees at the tailgate to set up an iPad to send streaming pictures of the event in a web feed so that anyone who'd like to be there but cannot make it in person can attend in spirit on line?

Grab a laptop and set it up as a Google Hangout - it's like a Skype call but with multiple people. I'd be happy to help, I'm disappointed that I can't make it to the tailgate this year because of co-op, but unfortunately I don't have a solution for sending the delicious food through the internet :)

I have to wonder about the lifestyle choices of someone who would attend a tailgate via Google Hangout.

If there is anyone, rest assured it would be an RPI student.

It does cut down on the cholesterol. :)

I bought tickets to the Cornell-Colgate weekend games (11/8, 11/9) this morning. Although I would have liked to go to the tailgate, I couldn't come up with reasons to go except for the weather being perhaps better than later in the season, but came up with several reasons not to go, only one game, crowded in town because of Parents Weekend, and a game which either will be a rout or we will play to SHU's level which will put me to sleep (and I prefer my bed ;) ). The fact that the women are playing a game the same day (UVM) is negated since I would miss about half for the Tailgate.

One of the first things I do each year when the schedules come out is to check whether, by some chance, there is a weekend when it would be possible to catch 2 games each of the men's and women's teams. This year it only happens on Nov 15-16 when the men have their home and away series with Union and the women host Yale and Brown in afternoon games.

But one has to go to Schenectady. ;)

Perhaps some have more tolerance than others.

In honor of Craig Bokenfohr and Ali Svoboda, today is 1 October 2013. There are 4 days until RPI's next game.


This is based upon 5 October 2013 for the start of next season.

Right. yet dozens of people posting online updates to a college hockey game while it is in progress seems perfectly natural.

Exactly, while I plan on being at the tailgate if I couldn't attend, I would be very interested in how many pulled pork sandwiches Troy Boy puts away..... or just how close Babo comes to taking FD's head off !! Haaa:D

This article is discussing the upcoming Army/Air Force hockey games, but the same issue exists for USMMA. If the government is still shut down on Saturday RPI won't be playing a football game. As if this whole mess wasn't already bad enough.
