Did anybody else notice that it got pretty cold as soon as it became December? Well, if you didn’t notice, the men’s and women’s hockey teams are here to remind you that it’s winter. And these Bears don’t hibernate just because it got a little chilly — they skate on one-centimeter-wide blades on a solid sheet of ice whacking at a black rubber disc and colliding with other people, intentionally or unintentionally. How does that not sound like a blast to watch?
Come cheer on your fellow classmates at these home games this weekend:
Friday, December 2
Women’s ice hockey returns to its ECAC schedule to take on Quinnipiac at 7 pm. The squad already has a better record than last season.
Saturday, December 3
Women’s basketball tips-off the Brown Classic against in-state rival URI at 2 pm.
Women’s ice hockey takes on the Tigers at 3 pm.
Men’s ice hockey follows shortly after at 7 pm, facing off against another snobby Ivy rival, Yale.
Sunday, December 4
Women’s basketball finishes up the Brown Classic against our cross-town rival Providence College at 4pm. So… If you go to both games… you will have seen all the women’s college basketball teams in Rhode Island play? We’re just kidding, JWU, we love you.
All the other Bears will also be gritting their teeth and resisting the urge to hibernate as they travel around the country. Like the fencing and swimming and diving teams, who can never have a home match because Brown doesn’t have the facilities for that. Cheer for them in your hearts.
