Our long national nightmare is almost over.
Real, honest to goodness hockey debuts tonight at the Field House at 7:30. We've got your fix as our sixth season of live tweeting kicks off with the women's team facing off against the Ottawa Jr. Senators.
Tonight is our first opportunity to see Whitney Renn, Shayna Tomlinson, Marisa Raspa, and Amanda Kimmerle suit up for the Engineers. The coaches poll has RPI finishing 10th this season and out of a playoff spot. The way the team finished off last season, and given the offensive losses they're dealing with, it's hard to quibble - but the path to quibble begins tonight.
And, of course, the time-honored tradition of the weekend pumpup. Something upbeat, something bouncy. Enjoy.
