Ok, this is a great point! Considering today was in the 60s and I was in a pullover at work. It is certainly not the cold you mention above. I guess my Vermont roots have long since left me.

Ha! You have indeed gone soft. bro les lives in VT. They were in the -20s.

Oh yes, talking hockey smack in a sports bar is the height of rudeness - to a man on blood pressure meds enrolled in anger management classes whose panties are three sizes too small perhaps. Even though I hate BU hockey as much as anyone who doesn't think a collection of lazy, selfish, entitled, primadonnas constitutes a team, I'm 100% sure that I'd find a sassy, pretty, hockey-savvy, BU coed waitressing to help pay her way through school so endearing I'd give her a 40% tip. Oh wait. Not a single thing about that scenario is remotely realistic! Never mind.

I guess your daughter's problems are genetic.

I read all this and thought man, people are really thin skinned now. Would you seriously not tip a kid for making a comment in jest? It would be one thing if the person kept at it, was nasty and obnoxious but for one comment? I know BU is used to being part of the Chosen but sheesh. After all the BS that gets dished out when winning you have to be able to put a single comment into context when you lose.

THat kind of comment is supposed to be something that you laugh off. If you take it seriously then you have a long, painful road this yr.

The Amherst fans did just that. And that's what BU Fan 84 also thought so not sure why you are making a comment about BU here. :confused:

Have fun to all of those traveling to Arizona this weekend. I've been to their home rink. It's....tiny. I think my high school's rink is bigger. At least there's plenty of parking. And of course, no snow. Which is the ultimate perk. I'm heading out there in two weeks when BU plays there. Curious to know what you think. Apparently there's supposed to be some news about a new home rink for them.

I wasn't saying how I personally would feel. All I'm saying is I wouldn't be surprised by a bad tip if a server insults the customer's team. They're supposed to be polite, customer service, etc. That is just common sense. That's guy's bizarre, completely inaccurate comment about BU (following a 9-3 beat down, no less) is what led to my follow up comment.

Missed the bizarre comment. I look at it more of a way to josh someone out of a bad mood when they had a loss. I guess I am from a different planet. We have enough experience at losing that something like that would make me crack up.

Calling it tiny is just being polite. It is terrible. But right now it's about all we have. BU and Q'Piac at least get one game over at Gila. But that is not great either as it is a big empty NHL arena. The talks of the new arena have really been heating up. Started to pick up steam from some alums in Colorado that supposedly saw the photos of the building last month during the series with CC. Then the head coach made a mention on USCHO Live this week. Sounds like something is close. As a season ticket holder, it can't come soon enough! With that, hope the fans traveling out still enjoy themselves. It's awesome to have you guys out.

I guess your daughter's problems are genetic.
If having brains, a strong work ethic and a sense of humor are "problems" then you're absolutely right. My daughter poked some fun at a hockey team and got stiffed for it. You called her rude and said she lacked class for it. I took a swipe at your school with standard "daddy's $" digs and by repeating gripes about your hockey team I pulled directly from regulars on the BU thread. You responded by saying my daughter has "problems" she inherited from me. Us: sarcastic smack talking about hockey we'd say to your face with a grin as we bought you a drink. You: mean spirited personal attacks that I GUARANTEE you wouldn't say to my face. Nice job being cowardly and vindictive just like the Amherst brats you're defending.

I thought I saw it mentioned in your teamís thread that YOU were the head coach? :confused: :p

In all seriousness thanks for all of the info. Iím very much looking forward to making this trip.

Ah, yes. There is some guy that has accused me regularly of being the coach. It is quite humorous. I even posted a photo of my wife and I from a tweet form Vegas to shut him up. We'll see if it works. I'm in section D, Row 2. Right in the middle of the row. Will be there with my daughter on Friday and not sure who will be with me Saturday. We are doing a blackout, so I will have a black ASU hockey sweatshirt on. Feel free to stop by and say hello. Enjoy the trip and best of luck!

Of all road trips not to go on!!! You should have insisted. :)

:)

I found a few of my pictures I took when I was there two years ago. It's also very bright! <-- more politeness Agreed about the game at Gila River. Not sure if 1000 people in a cavernous NHL rink is any better than a crammed small campus rink. We'll get the best of both I hope. Crossing my fingers the weather here cooperates so we can fly out and back with no delays.

On the other hand the frozen pipe disaster would have been more of a nightmare if I wasn't home.


Haha, okay nutjob.As an older alum this makes me kind of joyous. The fact that anyone from BU would bother to be a troll on our thread must mean we've made it to the big time? When we weren't any good no one bothered. :D
