I managed to get down to the 2010 GLI at Joe Louis Arena this year. I had to take a stupidfed because of the flu, but the game sure kept me awake. It was a seesaw battle between the University of Michigan and this years guest team, Colorado College. Of course, my alma mater won. Go Wolverines!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Lakes_Invitational
I have been attending since 1975 when the games were played at The Old Red Barn, The Detroit Olympia. In those days Michigan Technological University was always one of the best in the NCAA. Unfortunately those days are long gone for many schools, including three from the U.P. of Michigan. Those are MTU, Lake Superior State U. and Northern Michigan U. College hockey is big business these days and some of these schools can't compete with the big names. It's too bad because I love everything about Michigan's Upper Peninsula, including their universities.
BTW, I had good seats

I've never been to a hockey game, but it's on my bucket list.

I went to a fight one night and a hockey game broke out... I don't know anything about hockey but I never miss a chance to go and watch a game in person.
