The live cam hasn't been live for a while. Great video with Cav.
I thought the progress on the exterior seemed slow.

Seriously, does anybody know what’s up with that? I like checking in periodically and seeing progress.

It looks small but it’s gonna look great once it’s done. Can’t wait to hit the first game there.
Is Teds and Huskies and the Civic Pub still there (I kid about the pub, there’s no way the Pub is still around)

I’m just glad to see that they got the crane out of there.
I’m guessing they buried it.

Doesn’t need to be huge. It needs to be loud and an AWFUL place for opponents to play. I’ve been to several other arenas. BC is much bigger but a morgue. I’ve been to Alfond which is definitely larger, but really loud and really nasty. Schneider at PC is in our range and can be loud but not always. Same with YaIe. I want to be closer to Maine than BC.

Alfond is roughly 2x the capacity of what UConn is building. UConn's rink is too small.

Looks nice. Should allow for a great game day environment.

As a non-Ct resident who isn't funding any of this, I still shake me head and think that was a lot of money for a rink and support offices that size.

Combination of donations, proceeds from the sale of West Hartford campus and UConn 2000 bonds.

Yeah, it was expensive for what we ended up getting. Not that I am complaining. I am grateful to have what is going to be a beautiful on campus facility.

I feel like the rendering had solid navy blue on that angled walkway. I’m glad they went with brick instead.
