MGoBlue.com: Pep Rally Before Bemidji State Game

Submitted by MGoShoe on March 24th, 2010 at 9:28 PM

The U-M Athlectic Department has announced it will host a free hockey pep rally at Fort Wayne's Allen County War Memorial Coliseum on Saturday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. immediately preceding the game.

The free event will be held in the Expo IV-Ballroom on the ground floor of the arena. All Michigan fans are invited, including those without tickets. The Michigan Hockey Pep Band and U-M Athletics Director Dave Brandon will be in attendance. There will also be a guest appearance by a member of the U-M ice hockey staff. Light snacks will be provided and a cash bar will be available. Prizes, promotions and giveaways will also take place throughout the event.

Sounds like a great event for those who will make the trip.

leaves Thursday, which would kind of ruin the point of having one days before the game. If it's going to be without the team regardless, definitely do it last minute, so the extra energy the fans (hopefully) get can be translated directly into more cheering. Which will certainly lead to more goals and saves for Michigan, which will certainly lead to wins.

I was honestly beginning to question my trip. I'm 8 hours one way, the Sunday game got moved to 8, supposed to be to work Monday morning, I do have a wife and 2 kids...

Then my cousin has a brilliant idea to stop in Chicago Friday on the way there and catch a Chicago/Texas AHL game thus cutting continuous drive time significantly and partying in Chicago. Then the pep rally is announced. Justification! Now I'm ready to F*** S*** Up!
