Re: NU 0-2 vs North Dakota

Where did you get your numbers. Try $50-60 million. The new rink at RIT cost $40 million about ten years ago. Add in rising construction costs plus Niagara Falls’ “union” issues and you’re looking at at least a 25% markup. It would likely be half that to upgrade Dwyer to a two sided rink. It ain’t g...

Re: Niagara Falls Tourism Plans...maybe

Thanks Phillyeagle. Truthful, I agree with you. Most of the tourists we get in Cooperstown during the winter are those who visit in conjunction with something else...going to a football game at SU, skiing in the Catskills, visiting grandma in Albany, etc. An events center in NF with athletic contest...

Re: Niagara Falls Tourism Plans...maybe

How does one get the full report? As someone who owns multiple businesses in a seasonal upstate New York tourist community I found some of the headline ideas a little conflicting. An events center yes, no downtown parking absolutely stupid, an amusement park...after Columbus Day a nothing burger. I’...

Re: NU ALUM MATTHER BRASH CALLED UP BY MARINERS

It would have been in a tough spot with the last Wild Card spot at stake for the Mariners so I wasn,t surprised. Let’s hope he does not become like Moonlight Graham from Field of Dreams. Of course he became Doctor Archibold Graham in the movie at least. FYI, there was an NU alum who had only one at ...

Re: NU ALUM MATTHER BRASH CALLED UP BY MARINERS

The Mariners are now tied with the Red Sox for the second AL Wild Card spot after both Boston and Toronto lost last night. Three games to go! The Yankees are on the verge of clinching the #1 Wild Card spot.

Re: NU ALUM MATTHER BRASH CALLED UP BY MARINERS

Seattle won last night and is now only 1/2 game behind the Red Sox (lost to Baltimore) in the race for the second wild card spot in the American League. Toronto, who lost to the Yankees is a half game behind Seattle. The Mariners have played one more game so far which they lost so they are a game ba...

Re: MMAC Predictions

Apparently the writer who did the MAAC review is a sportswriter in Pensacola Florida. That makes as much sense as me being asked to submit a paper to JAMA on the cure for the common cold...chicken soup!

Re: Women’s Soccer- Winning
