Finally, the wait is over. The long and grueling offseason is finally coming to a close and cawlidge hawkey season is back in Morgantown. As the tweet above reminds us (LIKE WE NEEDED A REMINDER,) WVU Hockey team starts off their season on September 11 against the Alabama Crimson Tide in what I can only assume is the Chick-Fil-A Puck Drop Classic in a "Winter Classic-ified" Milan Puskar Stadium. Seems it might be a little warm to keep the ice from melting in mid-September, but if hockey people know one thing, it's how to keep the ice from melting.
Seriously, don't ask them. Have you ever tried to back talk to hockey parents? They get up at 4:30AM just for ice time to watch a bunch of eight-year-olds try to skate without hitting themselves in the face with the stick. Even with the full visors, those sticks break noses.
All soccer parents do is give out orange slices and pose in laundry detergent commercials. Watch this REVENGE-FUELED, HATE FILLED promo video.
I'm invested. Hell, I might tailgate. FROZEN TIDE IS GOIN DOWN, PAWL. WE'RE GOING TO THE
PLAYOFF FROZEN FOUR. CAN THE ACHA EVEN QUALIFY? I HAVE NO IDEA.
