Agree on pro rinks (20,000+) making poor college hockey venues. However, Vegas does have the Orleans Arena which was home to the ECHL wranglers for over a decade... they averaged 4-5k each season which is perfect for college hockey.
As you've pointed out though, there are plenty of other hurdles to clear. Just look at the state of Texas which has had the Stars for a 1/4 century, plenty of succssful club college teams, but had never been close to adding a D1 NCAA team.

Just a heads up (as I know most are unaware) but there will not be a Nike version... Jordan brand (nike child company) is making all of the football apparel/jerseys.

Hope they release a Michigan colorway of the AJ31 this year... best looking air Jordan in years.

Don't screw around with helmets. Your primary objective should be to find one with good safety ratings (see Va Tech helmet study) that fits him properly. If you can get the helmet in navy, you can always order a Michigan decal kit off eBay.

Exactly, rule #1 about using a gun is know exactly what you are shooting at... so either he's an asshole for knowing it was a wolverine and still shooting it, or he's an asshole for not knowing what it was.

Worst in the past year: Entourage (...and I watched the entire series, but for some reason it didn't translate well to the big screen.)
Worst of the past decade: The Love Guru (...could not make it through the entire thing)
Worst of my lifetime: Mac and Me (...even at 8, I recognized it was an awful ET ripoff.)

I have just recently gotten into the sport as my two boys started playing over the past few years. Talking to numerous people that have followed lacrosse for 20+ years, including some that played at the D1 level, what everyone keeps coming back to is coaching is holding the program back. I've never heard anyone have a single bad thing to say about JP the man, but much like Hoke it's becoming clear that he is in over his head.

He's fast approaching a place where we start ranking it against the greatest ironman streaks. If he were to play another 300 and pass 1000 straight, I'd personally put it above Ripken.
Greatest ironman streak might be Glenn Hall... didn't miss an NHL game in 8 seasons... over 500 games straight as a mask less goalie.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||I've seen things like this||
I've seen things like this happen too many times. There was a guy a few years ago that died after hitting his head on the ice trying to help push a broken down Zamboni off. A few years ago, we had a local ref snap his leg just above the ankle when he hit a rut skating backwards during play. USA hockey now mandates everyone that steps on the ice wear a helmet... no more coaches in baseball caps.
Just such a freak and sad accident.

Due to his history in that building, it would be a fitting place for Red to finish his coaching career. Though I'd much prefer for him to go out in Tampa with a title.

Having three kids in youth hockey, it hits very close to home. As a hockey parent, I'm part of the problem... I'm part of the hockey mentality that causes players to ignore sypmtoms and/or come back too soon. I don't know how many times I've told my kids that hockey players don't lay on the ice... they get up and finish their shift or skate to the bench. I've told them stories or shown them videos of Bobby Baun, Ian Laperriere, Greg Campbell... built them up as larger than life for playing through injury. That all has to change. It's ok to embrace and encourage toughness in the sport, but as parents, coaches and team doctors, we have to step in and take control of the situation to protect the player from his/her own pride.

I know you said gas, but what about a Weber Performer charcoal grill? It's a very versatile grill and has gas assist... I.e. You hook up a small Coleman propane tank and combined with a chimney starter your charcoal is good to go in 10 mins tops. The performer also includes the full side table in a cart setup and is also easy to move if need be. Comes with an ash catcher and the hinged Weber grill grate which makes adding charcoal easy during indirect cooks. Also has the charcoal baskets for indirect cook. Being a 22.5" Weber kettle, you have all those available aftermarket accessories... companies that make cast iron grates, pizza oven add-on, there's even a smoker add on that works well (smokenator I believe). Couldn't recommend it more!

Gallimore was lead instructor for my engin 100 class... I enjoyed his lectures and the class which was one of the reasons I went with aero. Wasn't lucky enough to have him again... Faeth was my 225 instructor (also a great instructor) and Kauffman for 335.
