Frozen Four Coming to Verizon Center

In a few days, take the 42 bus to the Frozen Four, the NCAA hockey equivalent of the Final Four. Collegiate hockey is dominated by just a handful of teams and this year's tourney group is pretty solid.

This elite contest, of just three games, will be held at the Verizon Center on Thursday April 9 through Saturday April 11. Semifinal game practices are open to the public. Those are on Wednesday from 11:00am until 3:45pm. There are no games on Wednesday, just practice. Semifinal games are Thursday April 9 at 5:00pm and 8:30pm. The championship game is Saturday April 11 at 7:00pm. The Friday in between will be full of activities like autograph sessions and a skills challenge.

I follow college hockey like I follow tennis, golf or racing; just interested in the big events. I probably won't attend, but I'm picking Denver to take it all. Mark it dude. Here's the bracket if you want to follow the action.
