We might as well have a single thread for both the Black Tuesday game vs. Harvard and next weekend's games.

Discuss. :)

Does anyone know if having Black Friday/Saturday/whatever on Tuesday is affecting ticket sales?

Is RPI seriously promoting Tuesday's October 29 game vs. Harvard as "Black Tuesday"? Because back on October 29, 1929, this happened:

Wouldn't be surprised to see it happen again.

Yes, they are, and I'm sorry if you don't get it.

Call the box office.

I have enough trouble getting through when I want to buy tickets. :)

Attendance has been about the same for each game so far this year. Of course, every home game has been on a Saturday. I would expect the usual 3500 or so being that it's the first ECAC game with the minus being played on a week night.

With this being a week night game-and with Harvard being notorious for not having much of a fan base travelling to our games-perhaps the HFH should have offered a 2 for 1 deal for this game? If this was a game with Union/Clarkson/Cornell it would not be necessary but getting people into the seats for Harvard/Princeton/Brown mid week is just not likely.

Harvard goalie Raphael Girard warmed up for this week's action with a 43-save shutout against Bentley Saturday night.

IIRC, Girard was a tough nut for RPI to crack last season, posting a 1.50 GAA in two games against the Engineers.

Bear in mind that the first Harvard game was A) a shutout for Harvard, B) took place before the cheaters left school, and C) took place during a "message-sending" game by RPI, wherein several healthy scratches were in the stands and RPI had a short bench.

Some people here seem to be in contact with just about everyone connected to RPI hockey. :p

I had remembered A.

Thanks for reminding me about B and C. Makes me feel a little better.

Just out of curiosity, is it always RPI and Union and sometimes Dartmouth that adjusts their schedules to accommodate Harvard's Beanpot participation?

This adjustment has nothing to do with Harvard's Beanpot participation. It is Princeton's and Quinnipiac's turn to adjust for the Beanpot this year, and the second weekend involves the home/home with Dartmouth. This is being adjusted because of the NC game at the TUC, because you are also adjusting your game with Dartmouth; something that is typically not done with a Beanpot adjustment.

It's accommodating the Mayor's Cup this year. Still a stupid name for the stupid trophy.

They could call it the Athletic Cup;)

Might be a better name for it. The Toilet Bowl would have a nice ring to it, too.
