That totally rocks. I hope that some of the players pick up on that and use some pink tape on their sticks, too. Be a man, support all women!!!
The Aces have been doing doing the promotion for 2 or 3 years I think and have made over $250,000 for the cancer research. The team gets pink jerseys made that are auctioned off as well. Its a great promotion and it would be great to see other teams catch on.

I remember someone saying that last year, but I didn't see any pink residue on the ice.

HMMMM, i've been there the last two years for both events and i'm pretty sure there is no pink on the ice for the classic
My memory may be a little off perhaps. I've had to be in the Sully the day after the Aces game before and that might have been what I was thinking about.

You can usually see a tint of it in the corners but not all over the ice.

Any advice on things to do and places to eat for out-of-towners?

Suze, I've already seen your recommendations in the Extras thread. Thanks.

Well I posted my predictions on the Nooks season thread, and didn't get much discussion. So I'll repost it here, to see what people think.

Quick stab at predictions for the upcoming weekend in A-town.

Oct. 9
Michigan vs. Alaska Fairbanks
I'm going with Michigan 4-1. I love the nooks, but think UMich is going to be too big, too fast, and to skilled for us. If anything maybe a closer score, but I don't think we will pull this off. I'm hoping for a different outcome than what my prediction is.

Mercyhurst vs. UAA
I'm going with UAA 5-2 in this one. The Lakers played the Seawolves tough at the CC last year (6-4), but this game is at the Sully, and well the Lakers aren't going to win. I will say that I think the game will be close until about the half way point, at which time UAA will step on the accelerator. They will score a special team goal, and open it up.

Oct. 10
Mercyhurst vs. Alaska Fairbanks
I'm going with the Nooks 4-1. This game will cap off another tough trip to the Last Frontier for the Lakers. After this game, I'm guessing they'll think twice, before making the long trip north again. The Lakers struggled with our speed last year, and we took it to them pretty good (5-0). Unless they added a few new speedy players, they again will struggle with our speed.

Michigan vs. UAA
This one is an interesting matchup in my opinion. I'm going with UMICH 3-2. I think the Seawolves can bang with the Wolverines. Actually they are probably the only team in the tourney that can. I also think the Seawolves will play tough in front of their home crowd. The only difference in this game is going to be UMich's speed and skill. UMich is lightening fast, and can bury the puck with their eyes closed. The Seawolves are going to need outstanding goal tending, and if they get it, the score will be tight.

Also we all know who the big names are for each team, but anyone excited about a particular freshman on your squad? I think overall our frosh class is a good class, but I've really been impressed with #7 Nik Yaremchuk. Not a huge guy, but so far he seems to be fast, skilled, and heady (seemingly a great fit for the college game). So who else do you recommend I keep an eye out for?

Todays ADN has an article about UAA's two European freshmen. I really liked what I saw from Naslund, who scored two goals last weekend. All of the freshmen showed some good things last Friday night, and I'm sure they will only get better.

Drove by the Sully today and the sign said parking was $6.00. Last year was still only $5 right?

I believe so, but we are boosters and get free parking so I can't be positive about that.

Nice article in todays ADN about Bryce and Jonnie O.

Sad to see that the Aces exhibition game made the front page, while UAA's was hidden in the sports section. :mad:

I agree but think UAA/Mercyhurst could be closer. UAA may be looking past them to Michigan, they were down to Mercyhurst in FBX by a couple of goals if I remember right.

People doing that is probably why they are charging more. :rolleyes:

Sure, thats the reason, or maybe they want to make more money? Concessions in the Sully keep going up is that because people are not using them or refusing to pay their prices, or do they want to make money? Econ 101 raise prices until people don't park there then lower them. They will charge whatever the market will pay, I don't pay, and I will never be a booster, but it's nice that you can afford to be one.

Just saying it's dishonest. If you can live with that and justify it go for it, but don't tell others to do the same.

we're here and I am excited. I can't wait for hockey (but will have to).

My friend sat next to one of the refs on the flight. I sat next to an Aces fan who thanked me for a Michigan State player...I explained that Michigan and Michigan State are different schools. *sigh*

Welcome to the Last Frontier! Hope you enjoy your time here. Weather isn;t exactly the best but its traditional October weather. UAA/UAF fans actually get quite a bit of the same confusion. It seems that a good number of college hockey fans dont realize that there are 2 college hockey teams in the state :rolleyes:

after working for that squad last year in their promotions department and having to mingle with their fans, i can tell you that 90% of Aces fans don't know squat about college hockey, or that UAA was around before they were.

That’s why I have come to the conclusion most of them show up for “Beer & a Fight”

Word was there was plenty of them last night, too. And honestly, I think the fights are a big reason the Aces outdraw UAA.

I usually park at that church on 15th and Cordova and walk down. My boss always parks at the Crazy Horse and plays Frogger across Gambell Street. $6 for uncovered parking at that arena is a rip.
