Alum thanks hockey fans

February 22, 2007

I’d like to take a moment to thank the “Hunting Grounds” for traveling to the frigid confines of Dunn County Ice Arena for the last regular season men’s hockey game. You arrived early in face paint and Falcon red, and stayed long after the final whistle to cheer the team to a regular season championship. You blew horns, chanted and did the chicken dance with a friendly and entertaining manner that all ages could enjoy. In a hostile environment you gave a positive image of college students unlike your counterparts.

You didn’t lower yourselves to rudeness, harassing and tasteless chants that some of the Blue Devils fans used at Hunt Arena and Dunn County Ice Arena.

I have traveled to countless Falcons games over the years. There are student sections larger and louder, but few reach your level. You represent what a student section should be, loud and crazy yet respectful and courteous to fellow Falcons fans as well as opposing fans, players and staff.

You represent our school, our team and yourselves with a great deal of class. Keep it up! Go Falcons!
