Venue: Olympicview Arena
Location: Mountlake Terrace, WA
After-Victory: I wasn’t expecting college hockey to be so much fun!!! Hockey is just a club sport at University of Washington, so they don’t get a ton of funding and it’s not as well-known to students. My friends and I have gone a few times now, and it has been a blast every time! The arena always gets packed, so it’s great to see the club having a following. Make sure if you go to a game to have a DD because guess what? It’s BYOB!! It’s pretty cold in the arena, so it’s a relief to be able to have your own beer on hand to warm you up. So get all your friends together, get some beer, and check out some good hockey! This game was a blast because it was UW vs. WSU. We had one Cougar friend with us (he sticks out like a sore thumb) and it was so fun heckling him….and UW won. Wouldn’t expect anything less. Club hockey is not as hardcore as professional hockey, but the crowd does get very into it, and my friends would even go up to the penalty box and bang at the windows. So entertaining! Go Dawgs!!!
(p.s. My friends aren’t creepy…it’s just No Shave November…)
