A half-hockey, half-basketball beast called Ice Jam

Saw this recently on Partnership Activation:
The Boston College Athletic Department recently teamed up with the Undergraduate Student Government of Boston College (UGBC) to create an unforgettable Ice Jam Event designed to drive interest in the University's basketball and hockey programs.

Boston College students, alumni, and fans were treated to a free unique sports experience that featured the Conte Forum arena transformed into a half sheet of ice and a half parquet. The BC-style Midnight Madness event allowed fans to enjoy a plethora of entertainment provided by the men's and women's basketball teams and the men's and women's hockey teams.

Kid rockers The Dube Brothers play for the Ottawa Senators

Meant to post this a while back. At a couple of games earlier this season, we invited Ottawa The Dube Brothers to play pre-game and during the intermission at a Sens game. The band is made up of three kids -- Liam, Jan and Quinn -- are not even teenagers yet. They rocked out & our fans loved them. Oh yeah, and they've raised about $100,000 for Haiti earthquake victims.

Here's a clip from their live pre-game set on opening night:

And here they are playing post-game in the Scotiabank Place foyer:

A hockey fan's tribute to "Eye of the Tiger" and a dynamite video

I don't often post about stuff we do at the Sens -- the stuff on this blog is usually generated from my "research" into what other teams are doing. I'll make an exception today to show you two great pieces from last night's game.

First, Brad, Dan and Al from Ottawa's Crush Improv put this great live skit together -- kind of a tribute to "Eye of the Tiger":

Second, a great highlight vid from our editor Pete Torresan. I love the energy and all of the great fan shots he used:
