If the puck drops and there's no one there to see it, did the game really happen?
We're a few minutes from the beginning of top-seeded Miami (Ohio) taking on Alabama-Huntsville in the first of two regional hockey semifinals at Memorial Coliseum.
There couldn't be more than 1,300 people here right now. I sure hope they start packing them in later, or this could look a little bad.
Interesting note: The referee tonight is Steve Marofsky, he of the former United and International Hockey League fame.
I have to admit, I get a bit of a kick out of seeing Alabama-Huntsville being a big program. I remember my alma mater, Emory, playing them in some games before they were big time.
