Not wanting to drive all the way to Houghton to watch one game against a team whose name I can't even put up on this board, but still wanting to see some early season games, I've decided to take a roadie to NMU and LSSU (and start this post with an enormous run-on sentence)... I've never been to the Sault to take in a game, but figured it would be a fun trip and with any luck might catch some fall colors as well. Any tips from those that have been there before? I have heard that there was a bell that all of the visiting fans were supposed to ring when they visited, but other than that don't know much about their barn or the local area.

Walk-up tickets should be available at both venues (especially in the Soo). At the Taffy, you will probably be right behind the Tech bench. At the Dingleberry, I have no idea where they put visiting fans who aren't with the Misfits. Both are inexpensive ($12-15).

If you're a cowbell ringer, the LSSU rink staff will probably threaten you at some point. In our case, it was with 5 minutes to play and Tech ahead 3-2. :p

The LSSU bell is chained so that it can't be rung unless they unlock it after they win. NMU fans can tell you what happened when opposing fans used to ring it.

EDIT: Also, the Taffy is on LSSU's property - it's part of their sports complex across the road from the main campus. You'll most likely want to drive to find food and beverage, as I don't recall much of anything within a mile of the building.

LSSU (and the rink) are located just up the hill from the very last US exit on I-75 (Meridian St).

Most anything to eat is along Ashmun St / 3 Mile road or located downtown along the locks.


Driving over during the fall would be a great trip. My fond memories of making the drive for games involved blinding snowstorms on M-28.

If anyone wants to sit with the Misfits at NMU on Oct 8th, they can get tickets from me for $6.

..

Last 5 minutes to play!? They usually confiscated Puckhead noise makers in the first 5 minutes. As far as the bell goes they love it when other teams ring it after an LSSU loss, don't let the chain bother you. Just make sure Tech lets them lead going into the 3rd period then comes back to win, and they'll probably leave it unchained for you and your team to win as a prize for such a remarkable comeback. Just make sure you have decent wheelman ready to whisk you away before the rent-a-cops or the players catch you. My services are for hire.

Lake state sucks, don't waste your time with them. That town was terrible to drink in.

I might be in town Saturday night, recruiting all week, don't know if I'll waste my time or money watching Tech lose to a ****ty canuck school.

I had a great time at LSSU. They've got some friendly bars and I almost got a friend a job from someone at that bar. We absolutely own that rink, shirtless guy put on a good shirtless show at the end of that game and we got compliments up the wazoo after that game. I see no reason not to go.

Every. Single. Farking. Time. It should not take 5 hours to get to the Soo from NMU, but it did.

:eek:

Anyway, I'll be there for this round of nonsense.
CC to Yager: I don't need a Misfits ticket after all, but thanks for the offer.

Can't comment on the Soo bar scene (had stuff to do on Sunday, so I had to hightail it back to Houghton right after the game), but I can confirm that a half-dozen of us took over the place (the Blue Crew mostly sits on their hands unless the Lakers score), and that we got complements from a handful of LSSU fans after the game (though most of them were Chris Conner's relatives, which might've had something to do with it :p).

The bars blew ***. And that is the most important thing about a road trip, god knows you can't go on Tech roadtrips to watch hockey and stay sane. Some ***** bartender threatened to call the police on us because we sang engineers when we were drunk, when the jukebox hadn't been playing for several minutes. She got no tip and we stole several glasses from that place. Never going back to LSSU.

I daresay the colors are peaking right now, but they should still be pretty darn good that weekend.
That being said, I can think of at least 2 years that the UP has seen some snow on that weekend! Coming back from Tech in '06 was BRUTAL--we left Houghton around midnight and didn't make it back to Marquette until around 4am (that did, however, include a stop to help a stranded driver between US-141 and Michigamme.)

Oh, and ring the bell. :D

Husky hockey opens 2010-11 with exhibition Saturday

By K.D. Warvie - DMG Sports Writer

HOUGHTON - Judging by the tone of recent practices, Michigan Tech is ready to get its hockey season going.

Players have been getting a bit antsy, and it's led to a few confrontations on the ice.

"September was a long month for everybody," Tech coach Jamie Russell said. "After our trip to Europe it was get back on campus, hurry up and wait.

"Everybody is ready to get started."

The Huskies will begin their 2010-11 season with an exhibition tilt against Ni****ing Saturday at 7:07 p.m. at the MacInnes Student Ice Arena.

Tech comes into the opener a step or two ahead of schedule thanks to its trip to Europe. The Huskies were able to implement some new systems and try them out during games with professional teams.

"We way ahead of things preparation-wise," Russell said. "(Assistant coach) Damon (Whitten) brought in some new systems that Pat (assistant coach Mikesch) and I really liked.

"We're changed our forecheck, our defensive zone coverage, and some of our offensive systems."

Along with making some changes in the systems, some new leaders were also named for this coming year. Junior Brett Olson and senior Deron Cousens will share the captain's duties.

Why two captains? Because Russell believes both bring something different to the table and that will help them share the leadership role.

"Deron has taken a good step in his development," Russell said. "He's really thrived under the responsibilities of being a captain.

"Brett is our vocal leader. He holds the players accountable."

Having newly named assistant captain Bennett Royer around doesn't hurt either. Royer has been able to take the edge off at practice with his sense of humor.

"Bennett has helped keep things loose at practice," Russell said of the team prankster.

The captains will be joined by 18 other teammates for the game.

Tech will dress three goalies, seven defensemen and 11 forwards.

One thing fans may notice is the size the coaching staff added to the lineup. To go along with three returning players who are at least 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Tech has four incoming freshmen that range from 6-2, 200 to 6-4, 230.

"We have a good balance of size and grit, and we upgraded our skill as well," Russell said. "We want to be aggressive and play puck-possession hockey.

"We want to make it so nobody wants to come in here and play us."

Tech will cut its roster down to 20 players when the regular season starts Friday at Northern Michigan.
