Not sure how many of you know this, but Alabama has a hockey team, and they are apparently pretty good. We were contacted by a representative of the team about throwing some link their way, and I have to say I'm fairly impressed with what they've managed in a football crazy state at a football crazy program with a sport that no one plays here. Finishing the season at 19-5, they are currently ranked #8 in the ACHA South and headed to regionals at the Atlanta Ice Forum this weekend. What's that you say? Can't make it to Atlanta during Valentine's weekend for hockey? Well you'll have plenty of opportunity to see the Frozen Tide at the Pelham Civic Complex for the Southeastern Hockey Conference Championship. It's from Feb 27 - March 1, and you can download their press release/info packet here (word .doc, 92kb).
