Do you know what day it is?
I hear Suffern and Clarkstown are playing at the Mall. I hear there might be a few people vying to get in the doors. I hear the blossoming rivalry has been spiced up by some behind-the-scenes nonsense since these teams battled to a 3-3 tie at Sport-O-Rama back in December.
This could get very interesting.
I still can’t get the rink capacity. Each time I’ve called, they folks on the other end of the phone assume I’m just a crazy Suffern parent looking for ammunition to get the game moved. We’ll say it can accommodate 400 spectators. They are reserving space for the family members of players. For the general public and student bodies, it’s first come, first served.
Dave and Busters should figure out how to do a closed-circuit feed.
I will be there so you can follow me @lohudhockey for all of the updates if there’s enough room to wiggle my thumbs. The plan is to hustle through postgame interviews so I can get back across the bridge and over to the Ice Hutch for most of the White Plains and Scarsdale game.
Got any predictions? Leave a comment to get on the record before the puck drops.
