Outdoor hockey today

Here at Rentschler Field for today's outdoor game between UConn and Sacred Heart. The set-up is terrific. They carved through a couple of feet of snow and ice on the turf to install the rink, which runs width-wise from the 50-yard line to just across the sideline where the visiting team stands for football. Rentschler is small enough that it makes for a great view for everyone. It's too bad there's only a handful of people on hand to watch the game. Too bad they couldn't get Yale and Quinnipiac to play here on Friday instead of the TD Bank Sports Center. Not sure if they could sell 40,000 tickets for it, but I bet they could come close. Instead, the crowd today looks to be about 103,000 short of the 104,000 they got at Michigan for the outdoor game at the Big House in December.

Should be fun, none the less.
