17 Days of Green – Frozen Fenway

Andy & I started watching Dartmouth Women’s Hockey shortly after moving to the Upper Valley in 2004. We’re season ticket holders, and rarely miss a game at Thompson Arena.

The Big Red of Cornell v. the Big Green of Dartmouth, Thompson Arena, January 5, 2008.

Although their names are not on the back of their jerseys (because “Dartmouth” on the front is the name that matters most), we know every player by sight.

We know their strengths, we know their regular positions, and we notice when players get paired up into new line combinations.

We are what you’d call Big Green “Super Fans.”

Go Big Green!

Nothing says love like homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie!

So when we learned that the Dartmouth Women’s Hockey team would be skating at Frozen Fenway, I knew I had to go.

It was an exciting, back and forth game, with Dartmouth’s Camille Dumais netting the game-winning goal in the final minute.

Sometimes, it’s Heaven that freezes over.
