    For those of you going, if you don't yet have a ticket do NOT get a ticket in a lower row, sit as far back as you can. This is the view from about halfway up the seating bowl at Fenway: I sat about 10 rows up from the dugout for the first Fenway game and couldn't see a thing, I watched the entire game on the makeshift jumbotron the NHL had installed in center field.

    I splurged and spent $100 and I'm sitting in the EMC club. Never sat there for a sox game. I'm pumped.

    Even in the EMC club, it seems I'll be pretty far away. Coke cola seats aka pavilion reserved on either side is probably where it's at in terms on seating.

    I agree that you don't want to be too low. I'm in a pavilion box upstairs behind 1st base, which is the goal UConn will be shooting twice at.

    Going to be sweet! Heading up with a crew from The Rent. Does anyone know (or has heard) where a UConn fan contingent bar will be pre/post game that day??

    Frozen Fenway is, once again, awful.

    Yup.

    Once UConn plays, it will make 12/12 fan bases who will want it to come to an end.

    Bingo. No one wants this anymore. These matchups are awful, sightlines are awful, ice conditions are brutal, terrible to watch on TV even. Stop this ridiculous charade.

    A game between Boston College and Providence should not be this awful.

    At least BC won in regulation, helping keep Providence buried at the bottom of the standings.

    It's a "thing." It will run its course and be replaced by the next thing. A game in Belfast perhaps. Actually the outdoor game thing has lasted longer than I expected. As someone who used to watch UConn when they played outdoors I was damned happy when they got a building but others never had that experience I guess.

    Does anyone have Promo Codes for tickets? Looks like Saturday's doubleheader is not selling well, tickets are all over Stubhub. I have a feeling they may be on the ground or $10-$15 outside on Saturday. Less if weather is not great. Where is the pre-game to watch UCONN Georgetown at noon? Cask and Flagon?

    UConn is slated to play in Belfast in November 2018 along with BU, Union, and Yale. Unfortunately it doesn't look like Hockey East is going to slow down Fenway anytime soon despite the dismal attendance numbers and waning fan interest. Hopefully that prediction is wrong because it's an increasingly dumb event and even stupider that teams have to give up home conference games for it.

    @dvegas You'll have no problem getting a ticket outside the game for about that price, don't buy on Stubhub unless you can get it for <$20 after fees. The games last weekend sold terribly.

    I'm sure it's not 1.125 million like the football program is going to get, but do you think UConn will get paid to play this game?

    They announced the game as being changed to 4 PM at the game last night. *facepalm*

    The sightlines may suck but for the coaches and players doing this for the first time, it's gotta be pretty cool.
