Yesterday I made my way across campus to the Mullins Center. The UMass Ice Hockey team was taking on Providence College. The enthusiasm of the fans and action on the ice made for a great evening. The game was great and the minutemen ended up winning 4-0!
Before I came to UMass I never really watched hockey, but now I find myself at almost all of the UMass Men's Ice Hockey home games. I love the crowd and the atmosphere. I love the cheers and the feeling of camaraderie within the hockey community.
As I watch the season ticket holders of the game get honored I know exactly why they have been coming for over twenty years.
