LetsGoDU Sponsors Pick-Up Hockey Game

Beautiful Magness Arena, home of the seven time National Champion Denver Pioneers, will play host to the USCHO.com Posters Hockey Game on Saturday, April 12th @ 1:15 PM.

This annual hockey extravaganza during the Frozen Four, combines computer geeks and obnoxious college fans in a casual pick-up hockey game. Once again bragging rights will be on the line as "players" from all over the nation match wits and skill.

For more information, registration and answers to all questions go to the Posters Game Thread on USCHO.

The NCAA National Championship game will be at 5 PM at the Pepsi Center two hours after the game. Both Magness Arena and the Pepsi Center are on Denver's light rail, within easy access of both arenas.

LetsGoDU and several University of Denver Alums contributed funds to offset the ice time at Magness Arena. Players may purchase a T-shirt as a memento of the historic occasion. Spectators and volunteers are welcome.

As the official organizer, costs will be lower than that. Thanks to our many generous contributions (;)), participants will only have to purchase a t-shirt if they choose.

Shouldn;t that be the "Let's Go Du Blog/USCHO Posters Game" or the "USCHO Posters Game Brought to you by the 'Let's Go DU' Blog?

Naming rights were purchased...

How much would that be?

I'd like to jump into that even though I haven't played an ice hockey game before.

Officially, it is the LetsGoDU.com USCHO Posters Game (kind of like the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl).

As for final cost of t-shirts ... no idea. And if you want to play, register on the board at the given link.
