Colorado College vs. the University of Denver

When: Sat., Feb. 4 2012

I'll never forget the Saturday night of Nov. 12, 1977, when a co-worker took me to my first college hockey game: Colorado College vs. the University of Denver in the old Broadmoor World Arena. It was a life-changing experience, seeing what a real rivalry looked and sounded like. (Octopus thrown on the ice, scuffles in the stands, chants such as "CC sucks," and "Can't spell DUMB without DU.") Emotions today remain strong as ever, and at 7 tonight the Tigers and Pioneers meet for the 283rd time to wrap up their regular-season series at the World Arena (3185 Venetucci Blvd., 520-7469, Tickets are $14 to $40, but it's advisable to get them ahead of time, because a sellout is likely. — Ralph Routon
