Red Hot Hockey
Alumni pep rally draws thousands to NYC| From Alumni Notes | By Nathaniel Boyle
In the slide show above, Terrier fans gather for Red Hot Hockey in Manhattan — and all things considered, celebrate a tie.
This winter, 18,200 fans stormed Madison Square Garden in New York City to watch BU take on Cornell in the second semiannual Red Hot Hockey contest, which ended in a 3-3 tie. Before the game, nearly 900 alumni and friends gathered in the Garden’s Terrace to get riled up and share some food and drink. “This is a historic rivalry that goes back ninety years,” David Hollowell, president of the Boston University Alumni Council, told the cheering pep rally crowd. BU President Robert A. Brown added, “Let’s out-scream them tonight — no matter what else happens!”
