Many DU alums, students & hockey fans will be in Washington D.C. for the Frozen Four hockey national championships featuring Boston University, Vermont, Miami (Ohio) & Bemidji State.

The University of Denver was founded in 1864 the year that President Lincoln was re-elected for his 2nd term as president. What better place to introduce our Baby Boone to the world?

Sounds like Mr. Fuson will need an entourage to follow him around as he moves from location to location.
