Thank you for your in depth analysis. I know Cornell always has a large contingent of fans when they're in Albany. It would be very embarrassing if Union made it to Albany and could not get more fans to attend than Cornell.

I'm hoping, and based on your analysis of the fans at the recent Union home games, that finals being over on the 18th has little effect on attendance for Union.

I hope they can provide more than 2,000 fans for their games in the Times Union Center.

Any other thoughts!?

I'd rather wait to see if Union actually gets there first. There's still one game to go. :D

Anyone know if Time Warner is carrying game three tonight? I watched the game last night, I was hoping they'll add game three

Now, how many people do you anticipate buying tickets!?

I'm hoping Union packs the house with 2,000+

The potential for a Union/Cornell finals could be an outstanding matchup and atmosphere.

We've had ECAC tickets ever since the tournament came to Albany - now we have a reason to bring our cowbells!

I would also like to add my congratulations to the Dutchmen on their 1st trip to Albany. I'm considering making the trip this weekend given the fact that (A) it's the last year the Championships are in Albany and (B) both Union and Brown are in it, but I'm not so sure about seeing the games in person given that it's a 3 hour drive for me one-way and the fact that my team (Colgate) didn't make it this year.

I'm sure you'll have better luck in the Times Union Center than the Raiders did (we were 0-4 in semifinal games there).

Finally!!

Another first for the program, and a big one. Congratulations to the team, to the coaching staff, and of course, to all of my long-suffering fellow season ticket holders!

OK - now I'm comfortable answering this. :cool:

First off, it made us a bit nervous that the PA announcer was telling us that Albany tickets would be available in the lobby after the game....when there was still 20 seconds left in a 2-1 game!!!

But, once the game was over, the Messa Rink lobby was packed with people buying those tickets. I won't guess a number, but I imagine section 103 will be pretty full on Friday night.

WE DID IT!!! ALBANY!!!

After temporarily losing my mind after the victory, I have no regained my sanity. Tonight was one special night at Messa Rink. I thought the energy throughout the game (especially towards the end) was unbeliavable. The celebration as the final buzzer sounded was epic. It has been a long time coming for this hockey team and I'm glad I am still here to see it. This is the greatest team in Union College history! How many of you guys are going to be in Albany on Friday? I'm heading to Boston for Knicks/Celtics on Wednesday, back to New York City on Thursday, and then up to Albany on Friday. Hope to see you guys there!

LET'S GO UNION DA DA DADADA!

You weren't the only one. As soon as that was announced, I said to spouse, "I'm going to kill him if he jinxes the team." Fortunately for him he didn't. (I'm highly superstitious!):rolleyes:

PLEASE, no talk beyond the SLU game!

You should make the trip. It's going to be a great atmosphere with a local team and Cornell. Plus as you said, it's the last year it will be in Albany.

Will there be a section of Union fans for the games in Albany? Anybody know how many tickets were sold/ are available?
