Saturday night, Michigan hockey hosts Bentley at 7:35ET at Yost. As a season ticket holder, I feel obligated to go. However, as you already know, Michigan football plays at NW at 7ET.
My dilemma is: do I stay home and watch the football game, or go to the hockey game and watch the football game after knowing the outcome? And before you suggest DVR'ing the football game and watching it immediately afterwards, I have to say that it'll be nearly impossible to NOT become informed about the game, considering that I'll be surrounded by people with smartphones.
EDIT: Wow, overwhelmingly "football" response! That is my gut feeling as well, but I would think there's something to be said about supporting another Michigan team in person when the other game is away and televised (so you can watch it at your convenience). Even though I'll probably side with "footbaw!", no one wants to play devil's advocate here???
Today's Ann Arbor Groupon is 2 for $20 tickets to some Michigan Hockey games.

If you want to send some MGoLove you can use my groupon referral link and I get groupon money :D
Regular link for those not wishing MGoLove upon me:
Suspended 12 games for violation of team rules. I won't link it because it comes from Freep, but it is definitely real.
He must have done something dumb because 12 games is a good chunk of the season. This will definitely hurt for a while.
