It was pretty cool being at in Lake Placid, and the whole time I was there I couldn't stop thinking about how cool it would be to have the ECAC Final Four there. It must have been awesome when the tournament was there. The town just feels like hockey.
The crowd for the Union-RPI game wasn't that big, especially compared to the St. Lawrence-Clarkson game. But, there was still a good atmosphere and the Union fans were loud. I still think we need to get a legitimate pep band.
I also had the amazing opportunity to go up into the press box where Al Michaels called "The Miracle on Ice." It was probably the coolest moment in my time in sports media. That press box is the most famous press box in the history of sports... at least to me.
Here are some pics and vids from a great day:
