Road Trips

November 12, 2005: Football @ Union

The band carpooled to Union to support the football team in what was the Liberty League Championship deciding game. The team lost 49-42, losing the shoes and having to settle for an ECAC Bowl berth.

November 19, 2005: ECAC Northwest Championship Game @ St. John Fisher

The band took a bus to Pittsford, NY to play at St. John Fisher for the ECAC Northwest Championship game, which the team won 26-22. A men's hockey overnight roadtrip to Colgate and Cornell was originally planned for this weekend, but because this was a postseason game the managers decided the band should support the football team instead.

January 27, 2006: Men's Hockey @ Harvard

Men's hockey one night stand to Harvard (Lost 3-1). Many of the attending members ate at Uno's in Harvard Square before the game, while some of the older members snuck off to a nearby bar instead. The band wandered the campus for a while and lost track of the bus, which had moved about 1/4 mile across campus from where we left it.

February 3, 2006: Men's Hockey @ Union

The band carpooled to Union to support the men's hockey team, where the team lost 3-2.

February 17-18, 2006: Men's Hockey @ Princeton & Quinnipiac

Men's hockey overnight to Princeton (Tie 4-4) and Quinnipiac (at Yale's Ingalls Rink) (Tie 4-4). On Friday night the NJ Alumni Chapter invited the band out to dinner at a Chinese Buffet after the game (which we accepted) and they paid half the price of our meals. Stayed at a Howard Johnson in beautiful New Brunswick, NJ. Saturday the band ate dinner at a small pizza place in New Haven (the same one that much of the band ate at during the 2004 Yale one night stand) and got to enjoy the game at Yale's rink, since Quinnipiac didn't have one at the time that could accommodate a D-I men's game. This was the game of the infamous referee bastard cheer, when the timing worked out perfectly to yell "BASTARD!" while the ref was skating right in front of the band.
