Here are some things I feel like plugging that you should check out if you don't have any big weekend plans.
First of all, the #19 in the nation Field Hockey team hosts Maine at 3 p.m. today on Memorial Field (turf in front of the Whitt). It is a semi-final game in the America East Tournament, and I'm sure the team would appreciate a few students in the crowd. They are a Division 1 college sport, and although it may not be as exciting as football, basketball or ice hockey, they have put in a lot of hard work, training and practice to get where they are today. (It's in a half hour, but you can still catch the second half!... if they have a half, I know nothing about field hockey...) At the very least if they win today you should all show up for the championship game on Saturday...
Tonight at 8 p.m. in the MUB entertainment center (basement where the Improv shows are) there is a free concert and the artist is a friend of one of my best friends. (Anyone who reads the comment section would know him as The Maine Guy). Anyways, if you don't have plans and are looking for something to do you should check it out. I mean it's a free show, so why not? His name is Keelan Donovan and you can check out his band's facebook page here.
The biggest UNH sporting event for the weekend is definitely the football game on Saturday at noon. #8 UNH hosts #4 William and Mary, who have been a thorn in the 'Cats side for the past few seasons, beating UNH in their last 7 match-ups. It should be a great game and should UNH win, they will definitely move up in the national standings. Hopefully the student section will be out in full force, because quite honestly the football student section has been terrible this year. So make yourself an Irish coffee or two, get there and be loud! Last year W&M won on a late field goal, and this year's game has the potential to be one of the best of the year.
Alright, I'll admit this was a lazy post, but it is a Friday and I just want to relax.
Stay classy, not UMassy.
